Sorry to harrass I just can not figure this out , I have a few Alerts sets to show pop ups under certain conditions and send a mail to specific receipients . It was working but it has suddenly stopped.
The pop up still shows but no longer asks to send mail !! Has anyone any idea of what it may be ???
Any suggestion is greatly appreciated !
If the pop-up is still occuring then I guess the alert conditions are still being met OK.
Has something changed re the email server? First check the user preferences (ctrl&alt&u) under the 'mail' tab are still set OK - if so click test to check.
Thanks for your reply
1)I did a test on the User preferences Mail tab and I received the mail ok !!!
2)The pop up does fire so I agree that the conditions must be ok
3)I have a LIVE dashboard on a server and I was advised that the server was changing -- But as the TEST mails still work I didnt think this was the cause of my issue --- to test this , I saved down a copy of Dashboard not on server ( directly on my drive) and this still did not trigger the mails.
4) Im not really sure what you mean re
"Are the alert mail parameters simple or do they use for example values in variables etc? "
But the Alert condition is simple
min([Status of the Error (Open / Closed)]='Open' and (today()-[Date the Error was discovered])>30)
and the only place I set any mail settings was user preferences ( It had been working but now not !!)
I am stumped ny advise gretly appreciated !
Thanks for response -- Seems to be something wrong with website and my earlier reply did not post !!!
1) My User Preferences mail settings have not been changed and when I press test I receive the mails !!
2) I agree as the pop up fires it must be something to do with my mail settings
3) The QV access point has been changed BUT to test my issue I saved down a copy of Dashboard to my S drive and not on server and tried to fire Alert and same issue pop up triggered but no mail notification !!!!
Thanks for your time and any advise greatly appreciated
Im sorry Im not sure what you mean by mail parameters ( still learning!!)
The only mail settings I have ever set are in user preferences ? Is this the info you require ?
As each Personal user logs in through the new access point the first AND ONLY the first time they log in they are asked to update the User preferences with mail info,
Once thats done they have the options to send the mails off !!!
The next time they log in the pop up is firing but not mention of the mails !!!! -- There is no delay on Alert conditions !!!! Any advice ???
