Die offizielle Übersetzung liegt noch nicht vor.

[en] Problem

[en] NiceLabel Control Center allows you to send notification emails for each change in the document approval process. The person responsible for the next workflow step receives a message that contains the following:

  • [en] Summary of actions taken in the previous workflow step

  • [en] Link to the document with changed status

[en] To enable sending notification emails, configure Control Center to use an outbound mailing system that sends emails on behalf of the NiceLabel Control Center. We refer to the such mail server as an outbound mail server or SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server.
