Alert Functionality

Alert Functionality

1. Reviews Contact Records created or changed each day and notifies of any with potential email address issues/errors. 

2. Identifying these errors is imperative so as to ensure your emails sent via eAuto (i.e. eAgent tasks and on demand emailing of invoices) and via CEO Juice (i.e. ID800/Past Due Invoices and ID181/Service Call Updates to your Customer). 

3. Runs daily at end of day for any qualifying Contact Records changed in last 30-days

4. Sorts by Creator, then by Contacts Preferred Full Name

5. Provides full complete list of ALL qualifying Contact Records (whether changed in last 30-days or more) QUARTERLY on on the 1st of January, April, July, and October at end of day. This full list ONLY sends to the emails listed in the To, does NOT send full list to CC/BCC/Teams Channel, To Creator or any Branch Role(s).

6. Considers both the (1) 'Email' field and (2) 'Other emails' field:


7. Branch showing on alert email is per the Customer Record linked to the Contract Record:


8. If you are using filter VariableX to only consider specified branches, then please know if a Contact Record is NOT linked to a Customer Record, then that Contact Record will never be considered by nor report on the alert email.

9. If you wish for a contact to be excluded from this alert, add -decl- or --3rd Party-- to the email field (not the Other emails field) and this alert will ignore that Contact Record.

10. Will not trigger on blanks in either the 'Email' or 'Other emails' field, if there is a valid email in either field.

11. Other emails field - logic does allow (as of revision 20240517) for a space, comma, semi-colon, or carriage return between multiple emails listed.  


Common Issues

Common Issues:

-Too many spaces between name before and after @ sign
