Add Or Edit Email Task

You use the Email Task dialog to configure a Task which involves creating and sending an email to one or more recipients that contains up to 10 files as attachments. The following sections explain the function and configuration of each field in the dialog.

Task ID
This field is generated by the application. It is the unique numeric identifier that the program uses to keep track of each Task. No configuration is necessary.

File Action
This field displays the type of Task that you are currently configuring.

Task Name
Use this field to give a unique name to the Task that you are currently configuring. Make sure to name your Tasks in a way that will easily identify them in the Task list window.

Task Description
Use this field to give a more detailed description of the Task that you are currently configuring.

Email From Address
Use this field to select the address that will be used as the From Address of the email. You can add a new email address here if you do not have one in the list that matches your requirements.

Email Recipients
Use this button to launch the Assign Email Addresses dialog to select the addresses to which the email will be sent. For more information about the Assign Email Addresses dialog, please refer to the Assign Email Addresses section of this help file.

Email Subject Line
Use this field to specify the subject line of the email that will be sent.

Source Folder
Use this field to set the folder from which the Task is going to obtain the file(s) to attach to the email. Click the Browse button to select a local or network folder. You may also type a valid folder path into the field directly. If you will be obtaining the files from a location on the network, make sure to use a UNC path (e.g. \\server_name\share_name) rather than a mapped drive letter (e.g. S:\share_name) because the NTS File Mover will not be able to access the folder by drive letter when the Job is run by the scheduler due to the constraints of the Windows operating system.

Assigned Files
Use this field to assign one or more files to the Task. You can right click on a File To Be Attached To The Email in this list to unassign the file from the list of files to be processed by the Task. Click the Browse button (or right click on a File To Be Attached To The Email) to launch the Assign File(s) To Task dialog where you can edit the list of assigned files. For more information about the Assign File(s) To Task dialog, please refer to the Assign Files To Task section of this help file.

File Date Range
Click this button to launch a dialog that allows you to limit the date range of files that will be included in the Task. For more information about this feature, please refer to the Task Files Date Range section of this help file.
