I'm looking for a procedure to send automatic timely remainders for the pending approvals (state changes). I would appreciate if some one can point me in right direction.Thanks in advance.swpdm professional remainders automatic notification
Using a "Delayed State Notification" is most likely your best bet to deal with requests that have gone unanswered for a given number of days.
2019 SOLIDWORKS PDM Help - Creating Delayed In State Notifications
You can set a reminder when a file has been in a state for X days - we do this for approval waitings that are missed.
Thank you Jeff Parker Søren Stærk. I see both you have suggested delayed notifications. i'm wondering if somehow this can be used to automatically send notifications to the user with whom approval is pending?
Typically PDM does not know who's approval is till pending. (Recall PDM does not record who notifications go to.)
If you have a state where only one person has approval access, you can have the notification set to go out to that one person....also remember the delayed state notification is folder based, so you could have several notifications set up...i.e if the file is in folder A, notify person B, and if the file is in folder C, notify person D....
