Is there a way to receive SNMP traps in Ciscoworks and if a certain trap is received have ciscoworks perform an action (like notify you or whatever).

thanks

You can setup CiscoWorks DFM (Device Fault Manager) to alert on any traps received from a managed device. This is setup under “Notification Services” in the DFM module. Below is on overview from DFM

Overview
Use the Notification Services page to customize event names and manage DFM notifications. The Notification Customization function lets you change system-defined event names to other names that are more meaningful to you. DFM will then use the new names throughout its system, including in its notifications. The other functions on this page allow you to configure DFM to send notifications when specific alerts or events occur on specific device groups. You can send these notifications to e-mail recipients or network management systems. For systems that do not accept SNMP traps, use syslog

Options

Notification Customization: Modify event names throughout DFM.

Event Sets: Create sets of events to monitor for notifications.

Notification Groups: Define devices to monitor for notifications. Groups can consist of devices, alerts, and events (determined by a chosen event set). You can group alerts and events according to severity and status.

SNMP Trap Notification: Forward alerts and events as SNMP traps, to specified trap recipients. Forwarded traps are based on notification groups.

E-Mail Notification: Forward alerts and events as e-mail, to specified e-mail recipients. Forwarded traps are based on notification groups.

Syslog Notification: Forward alerts and events as syslog messages, to specified recipients. Forwarded traps are based on notification groups
