I'm assuming that you are storing the phone call memo in a SharePoint List.

Also tell us if you are using any workflow solutions or you are not aware of any e.g Nintex. If there are nothing as such you are using then you can create a SharePoint Designer workflow on that list with a condition to start the workflow which sends an email, whenever a new item is created in that list.

Let me know your expertise level with SharePoint Designer or any other workflow tools, so that I can suggest better.

Hi there Sushanta!
Thank you for your response...

Re: SharePoint Designer, I'm just a newbies with this program, so my expertise level with it is just Beginner... :(
We haven't created any workflow yet with this SP2013, that's we're asking for help on how to start and where to start... :)

Hi Stiebel,

Creating simple workflows with SharePoint Designer is quite easy.

You can simply download SharePoint Designer, Connect to your SharePoint Site and create workflow by dragging dropping the activities, without any code. Publish your workflow and you are good.

Please refer to below articles for reference -

In case, if you still need some help, let me know,
We can do a quick skype call.

Cheers,
Raj

Hi there Rajendra,

Thank you for your advise...

But we really don't know how to construct with SP Designer...
We don't know how to start... :(

We just want when the receptionist receives a call and the recipient isn't available, they will just input the data then submit, and it will send an email to the recipient...

That's all... :)
