Automatically email a list owner when the list is published.
We would like a feature to automatically email a list owner when the list is published. This would provide feedback to the Academic staff from the reading list assistant who keyed in the data for the reading list in Aspire and let them know that the list has been published and they are online.
A work around would be to run a report on published lists and export to csv file, run a mail merge and update the academic staff, however the email address in not included in the export file?
We will not be focusing on this due to low votes. This idea has been declined and moved to the archive.
Can you tell me a bit more about the process surrounding this and why you want to work this way? Is this because the library is creating lists for academics and you're looking for a way to inform the academic when the list has been created? If so, I see you are using list owners, so why not assign the the relevant academic as the list owner (and invite them as a list publisher) when the list is completed?
