Notifications on value change of custom fields

Hello,

We would like to send email notifications when a value of a "custom" field changes.

We are on PPM 7.5 SP 3.

It is possible to send notifications on field change for seeded/OOTB fields. We would like to extend this functionality to custom fields too.

Anyone with experience on sending notifications for custom fields?

Thanks
Nisha

Re: Notifications on value change of custom fields

Hi,
There is one draw back in this.
We can send mail that the custom field is changed, but if we want the new value as a part of E-mail, Then I suppose that this is not possible.

If we use the token of the custom field in the e-Mail, the old value will only be mailed, not the new one. I am using PPM 7.1

Not sure whether it is addressed in higher versions and SP's.

Re: Notifications on value change of custom fields

Yes, I agree. This solution does have a few drawbacks. But in a simple case like mine, it works well.

Thanks again Mahendran!
