  • Reminder Time

    • Is it possible to send weekly reminders instead of daily for instance every Monday at 7 am?
    • Change DaysOfWeekMask to 2
    • Could you please tell us what does 62 mean and is there a specific reason putting the number of 2 in order to send every Monday?
    • SCSM uses a bitmask for workflow daily schedules based on:
      If you add-up Mon-Fri you get 62. 127 is every day of the week and 2 is Monday only.

    • Is it possible to define a Cc field in the XML for the notification field so that for instance a manger can also be notified?
    • Hi, after a very quick look it doesn't look like the SDK supports Cc for EnterpriseManagementGroup.Notifications.Send(). Also, NotificationRecipientType only support "Primary". There are no values for Cc or Bcc there, either.

    • The staus for the workflow event states succeeded.  I have no errors on the event viewer. How do I go about troubleshooting if the email is actually being sent?
    • Hi, are your analysts in the Domain\group that you configured?
    • After some testing, you probably have a type in your group path. No check is made to see if the group exists, rather, a memberof method is used, so if the group does not exist, Directory Services does not return an error.
    • I got this work by not changing the from to address of Do I only change this in the xml file in one place?  Any suggestion would be helpful and how can I change the format of the template?  This was an excellent addition to SCSM
    • Hi Andy, EmailFromAddress should be set to the smtp address of the "sending" mailbox, so normally your workflow account/service desk mailbox. Unfortunately, as the email is built-in within the assembly, there is no way to change the template of the email, other than the few parameters that are available.

    • Hi, did you configure LDAPDomainRoot and ADGroupDN correctly before you imported the Management Pack?
    • Thanks Rob. I had a typo. Working perfectly.  Question I have is there a way to add the Status Field in the email? ID | Title | Status
    • Unfortunately, as the email is built with-in the assembly customisation is not possible unless I find some time to update it... :)
    • However, I have updated the assembly, need to test it first...
    • New assembly uploaded, please see addtions to notes
