When a new task is created, Xpert.ivy sends a notification email to the asignee. This is of course based on some configuration stuff.

I change the assignee of an existing task programatically (with public workflow API). Now I want the new assignee to get the task email. Is it possible to trigger this email again for some ITask?

A workaround would setting the existing task to SYSTEM user and implement a loop in the business process to create a new task. This causes some side effects, that are not acceptable in my scenario.

Hi, if i use the delegate function of the htmlWFUi the mail is send automatic to the new activator. But the question is good i would need nearly the same to send daily Task summary more then once a day.

kindly regards Roland

I just did a bit research and expired, that Xpert.ivy Server is doing all I need automatically. So, I searched for something that is already implemented.

When I use API methods like setExpiryActivator or setOriginalActivator on an ITask, the task will automatically appear in the task notification emails of the new assignee.

@roland: Thanks for pointing me to the right direction. I checked how this is done in HtmlWfUI

This is possible. I think the basic method you need is either .findTask(int taskIdentifier)or findWorkTasks()on that base you can send an email to notify the user about his/her newly assigned task. See API for further informations.

From the designer guide:

In a Daily notification mail you might need a task list for a user that she may activate and work on. The method findWorkTasks(..) on ivy.wf does this job. It uses even substitutions and absences to collect the correct task list (see IWorkflowContext interface in the PublicAPI documentation for more details)

Hope this helps.
