I have a requirement to send a notification to newly added people in several different people picker fields. Heres an example:
The Assignee fills out the form and enters as many stakeholders as they may know who would participate with this form. there is a different stakeholder field for each departmental stakeholder. these are people picker fields.
When the assignee submits the form it goes to the known stakeholders.
Now, lets say a new stakeholder needs added, then the assignee will go in and add however many additional stakeholders per department.
there should be a notification that goes out to the newly added stakeholders.
I read this https://community.nintex.com/message/60242-email-notification-to-newly-added-people and it doesn't seem to apply to my scenario as I have several people picker fields where this one discusses one.
Any thoughts as to how I an get notifications to be sent to just the newly added stakeholders?
I think that you should show (when EditionMode NOT New) currently stakeholders on a disabled control, then aside show another people picker ( that you never show on NEW MODE) named addStakeHolder.
Then a workflow will start on item change and send notification to addStakeHolder.
Additionally you should update the original column StakeHolder=StakeHolder+addStakeHolder.
that could work. What if there are more than one stakeholders per department. i.e. needing multiple people in the people picker?
im asking the business unit if that is a requirement. if not, then this solution may work.
I am guessing I would have to run a separate workflow off of each people picker field to achieve the results I want. I was trying to avoid that situation.
