Hi ,

Scenario ....

InfoPath list on approval workflow and when approval status on "pending" we want to send alert or email notification  on delayed "pending" for specific persons who are not approved or rejected ....

Can we use you solution for this ? What we need is to send an email notification mentioning about delayed approvals in daily ....

In your solution there is a filed (View URL) which can use to send URL of the list , we cannot send a link by using that (its column type is single line of text and should it be a hyper link ??)

pls reply me ..


Thanks ,

Yes, I believe it would work.

It can send out the url of the "dispform.aspx" of those "pending" items.

thanks fro your reply ,


But that view url field does not send the url inside the mail ...... Why is that ???

Is it because that URL field type is Single type of text , as I asked should it be changed ?


thanks ,

Normally we can treat the URL as plain text string, and put it into email body.
