General notifications


I would like to send a notification to all users regarding upcoming system and policy changes. Is there a way to do this using delayed notifications? As far as I can tell notifications are keyed to items and changes in them; is there place to hang notifications-to-everyone? I'd settle for a way to send a notification to everyone in a group. Using SBM 10.1.1.4.

Yes, I could extract all users from a report to Excel and put them into the address field of an Outlook message, but I'd rather not have to do that.

You could create a global aux table with Title & Description fields and add a notification when an item is added to e-mail to all groups. Then whenever you add a new item to this table, everybody would be notified.

Sounds like a good solution - essentially create a table that exists only to trigger notifications. The description column could include text of the notification perhaps.

Thanks!

If your email system supports global distribution groups or lists you could create a single address there and send a notification to that address.

Yes. We wanted to use something inside Serena to avoid maintaining such a list, as our users are a mix of people from different organizations.
