Can I send an email to all PPM users

Hello;

In PPM 7.5 is there any way to send email to all PPM users from PPM system.

We will make a data base upgrade and PPM service will stop for 2 hours.

Can I make an announcement from PPM system??

Hi eata,

 

It's possible:

  1. Make a Request Type and define 4 field. One for "TO", other one for "CC", other one for "SUBJECT" and one token for mail content.
  2. When you are defining TO and CC field, assign a validation which contain Security Groups. You can do it for Users.
  3. Make a only one step workflow. The step is execution step. Define an email with abow 4 token in execution step.

Make sure that in email in execution step, select "user defined token" something like that.

I have what you want as a package, but I'm selling them for my business.

Re: Can I send an email to all PPM users

We had to write a custom script using ASP to query to extract users from the Oracle DB.  It then sends custom mail using an native ASP mail.  BASH, using BLAT, on the local PPM server may be a unix alternative.

 

Our implementation has 10,000+ users and the SMTP server could not handle TO/CC/BCC lines with over 1500 users at a time (based on character size).  The program cycles through batches of 1000 users at a time sending email.

 

Could a PPM Workflow send multiple emails?  Beyond me...

Hi eric,

Yes. We are currently using the system which I described above. We use it for the same reason with eata.
