Send Email with generated report using a timer

Hello,


Please kindly help with the issue described below, I am quite new to OutSystems, so please help.

I need to create the Action that will send emails with generated reports at the specified time every week. So I am a bit confused from which point to start. Should I start with creating a Server Action, then Email and Timer? What steps should be taken?

Thank you very much for your attention!

Hi Mikhali,

First you need to configure SMTP in Outsystem Service Center. IF it is done.than 

  1. you need to create Email flow with attachment
  2. you need to pass subject for this Email
  3. create a time with server action
  4. in this action you need to get data from aggregate and here you need to email pass report content here.

Find attached oml will help you more.

 Thanks!


Is is necessary to populate the Email Screen with any data? I mean , will the email be sent if I leave the Email Screen blank.

 

Hi.

You can send the report on the body of the email or as an attachment.

Even if not mandatory, the email should give some context for the reader.
