Latitude Corporate Edition - 9218.0701
Nov 30, 2018   New Configurable Notification Group Roles
    Different members of a group can now be given different menu options by configuring Notification Roles
    Overview
    Notification items are sent out to groups of users. Each group member has the same menu options by default, but this menu can now be configured on a member by member basis.
    There are currently 5 roles in Latitude, the "Can Acknowledge" and "Backstop" roles are configurable, while the "Can Accept", "Can Decline" and "Can Complete" roles are always available to all group members.
    "Can Acknowledge" is usually given to supervisors and team leads that need only be notified that a particular work process item is in the queue, but who do not actually perform any work on it. They therefore only need to "acknowledge" they have seen the item. In cases where nobody accepts a particular item, eg. everyone notified either acknowledged or declined the item, a "Backstop" employee will be notified of this in order for them to either update, re-assign or close the item
    Menu options:
    Acknowledge - Acknowledge an item and optionally enter a reason. Once acknowledged, the item is removed from the notification list. Acknowledged items re-appear in the users item list when the item is updated ie. when status, subject, date etc are changed
    Accept - Sets the current logged-on user as the "owner" of the item. Other staff who were originally notified about the item no longer receive notifications about this item after the "owner" accepts it
    Decline - Prompts the user to enter a reason, sets the notification item status to "Declined" and removes the item from the current user's list. Other staff will still continue to receive the same notification until they all either accept or decline it. If nobody accepts the item, the responsible person (ie. backstop) will be notified so they can update, re-assign or close the item
    Complete - Once a user who accepts and item is finished working on it, they change the item to "completed" after which the item is removed from their notification list
    Open Item - Opens the item normally
    To see the menu options,
    See Latitude Viewer -> My Notifications -> right-click an item
    To configure the notification roles,
    See Latitude Viewer -> My Notifications -> right-click an item
    To assign notification roles to employees,
    See Employee -> Notification tab -> select a group -> select a role
    Scheduled Register Notifications & Reminders
    Make future dated register notifications appear in current notification listings, daily email notifications and Outlook reminders prior to the actual date or deadline.
    To create future dated notifications, do the following:
    Create a register item -> enter register item details
    Enter a register date in the future eg. July 1 next year
    Nominate the notification group to be notified in the "Notify" field
    Set the number of days prior to the register item date you want to be notified for in the "Day" field eg. 7 to be notified 7 days prior to the register date.
    Register notifications during the reminder period prior to the register date are automatically included in the daily notification email of each member of the assigned reminder group, or in the employee's list if you set it to remind an individual employee
    More content in Notification emails
    New job name, job status and register status fields in notification email
