#2 the ability to notify a specific user when the value of a specific field changes.
As I mentioned previously, when in edit mode and on the basic tab, it would be great to have a checkbox that said notify user when the value of this field changes, then be able to select the user from a drop down.
Let me give you a current example we’re struggling with …
Danny registers manufacturer warranties when we start a project.
During the course of the project a Production person books interim and final inspections. Sometimes they require an additional inspection because something failed.
After a successful final inspection Danny receives the guarantee from the manufacturer and uploads it to Ragic.
At that point our AP department needs to pay for the warranty to execute it. However, there’s no way for Janice to know that Danny has uploaded a dozen guarantees, then start piling up, and the next thing we know we owe a huge sum of money and/or even worse we get a letter from the manufacturer saying they’re going to suspend the warranty for non-payment.
Keep in mind that we do projects into the seven figure range. Manufacturer warranties are a big deal.
With all of that being said I could give dozens of examples where we need these types of notifications because our users are tuning out messages from Ragic, or as I mentioned previously, turning them completely off.
