    Configuring User Notification Types

    Translatable
    To configure user notifications, you must have one of the following roles:
    • Letter Administrator
    • General System Administrator
    You send notifications to users using the job Update/Notify Users. For more information, see Running Manual Jobs on Defined Sets.
    The User Notifications Types table (Administration > User Management Configuration > Configuration Menu > General > User Notification Types) includes a default notification indicating that the receiver’s password was changed.
    You can add additional notification types. When running an Update/Notify Users job, you can select the notification type.
    To configure notification types:
    1. Add, edit, or remove notification types in the User Notifications Types table.
      Notification Types
    2. When you are done, click Save.
      If you added a notification type, you will require its code in the following step.
    3. Configure the User Notifications Letter and its fields for the letter, as required. For example, the Notify Password Change letter:
      • Administration > General Configuration > Configuration Menu > General Configuration > Letter Emails; select Actions > Customize in the User Notifications Letter row.
        Add any required fields for any additional notification types you added in step 1 above.
        User Notification Letter Fields
      • Administration > General Configuration > Configuration Menu > General Configuration > Customize Letters; click Customize in the User Notifications Letter row.
        Add any required XSL clauses for the new fields. For example, this is a conditional clause that inserts fields for the out-of-the-box notification NOTIFY_PASSWORD_CHANGE:
        <xsl:choose>
        <xsl:when test="notification_data/notification_type =
        'NOTIFY_PASSWORD_CHANGE' ">
        <tr>
        <td>
        <h3>@@Line_1@@</h3>
        <xsl:value-of select="notification_data/temp_password" />
        </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
        <td>
        <h3>@@Line_2@@</h3>
        </td>
        </tr>
        </xsl:when>
        </xsl:choose>
