When a subtable is placed on a form and Alerts are set up to notify of matching criteria, it would be beneficial to be able to group the Alerts rather than have numerous emails disseminated if they are all to go to the same person.
For example, I have an Actions table on a FRACAS form whereby tasks can be allocated to a team member. Fields include:
A task is entered whereby an ID is assigned. The description is entered, an Assigned To name is selected, a status of Assigned is selected and an email is generated to notify the Assignee of the task.
An Alert has also been setup to notify of delinquent actions, based on the following criteria:
Alert type = Date Notice (Due)
Date field name = Due Date
Days to notify = 1
Alert criteria is Completed (Actions) is equal to False
The Alert runs daily and emails the staff member (who had been assigned the Action) that he/she has a delinquent action.
If a single person has been assigned multiple actions, and several or all are oustanding, this results in numerous emails to a single recipient.
It would be most helpful if we could group Alert emails to a single recipient if that name appears more than once in the table.
Also, being able to construct a report based on fields setup in the subtable would be most beneficial also.
