Custom Outlook Form - Generate email notification from task request
Posted on 2014-01-31
To take a very complicated process and simplify it --
I've designed a custom outlook form for use as a task request. Is there a way to apply a button of some sort that when pushed will pull fields from the form and generate an email to be sent to a separate distribution list.
Ex. Group A will apply new employee information to the custom form and send it to Group B to enter into a database. Group A must then write up an email to notify Group C about the employee using only a few data points from the form (Hire date, name, job title, department, supervisor). I would like to eliminate this manual step so that Group A can press a button and an email will populate that states:
New hire John Doe will start on February 2, 2014 as a Accountant in Accounting reporting to Susan Smith.
