I am used to use the cli: swithmail, it is easy to use, it has a wizard, and it has worked ok every time I used it. I also have had some issues using blat.
Hope this help
I am using Blat.
I have added that -attach option with the parameter you mentioned.
Im getting this error:
"C:\Xerox\FreeFlow\Core\00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000\Platform\Spool\6f4aab08-1251-4f85-9225-87c653819cfa\REPORT_ _63613851204806.pdf" returns exit code 1.
Not sure how to resolve this.
To setup email, install Blat (or any other CLI email client) in the FFCore server and configure it to use your SMTP server.
You can find instructions for blat here
You can find instructions about setting up blat with the FFCore external component in this Topic: http://forum.support.xerox.com/t5/FreeFlow-Core/Sending-emails-with-the-external-component-and-Blat/...
The preflight report can be sent using the following blat option:
$FFwfJob.preflightReportUri$ is the path to the preflight report.
Thanks for the information.
At the moment there's no way to add that sort of infomration in an email component in the workflow. The external component is the only way to enable this level of customization on the notifications.
In FFProdM I could setup an email and add whatever info I wanted to it to pass to my art department.
Now, when preflight check fails I get this:
"FreeFlow Core Job 184 passed preflight with 0 fixup(s) applied, 0 warning(s), and 1 error(s)."
No order number, no attachment to show what has failed...
So, I am asking, is there a way we can manipulate that notification to add our order number so that when email does go out to my art department, they know what to do.
You should be able to enable notification for relevent preflight events in the Notifications settings.
This shoud send emails to all selected users when a relevant preflight event occurs in any workflow.
Can you elaborate on what you would like to see?
The notification side of things in FFCore is so wring compared to FFProdM.
It feels like FFCore was built for the end user and not for the system (if that made sense).
Having defined notifications is so critical to our operation.
Having preflight checks fail, I shouldn't need to rely on third party apps like Blat or having to create scripts, to notify my graphic arts team of this issue.
Please build beter notifications in new upgrades.
