Adding fields to Event E-mails

8 - Asteroid



So the issue is that the dynamic abilities of the email tool are required. In my case I have a workflow that collates thousands of excel reports and then sends tailored exception reports to the necessary people. I use a batch macro so I will occasionally have someone in one of the reports, I still need the flow to run and the emails to send. Its an odd scenario. The event is too limited but allows to send with errors, the email tool is ultra dynamic but wont ignore errors.

Hi Again @JTCairns!


I understand your scenario. @CharlieS might have some good insight - he's the expert here, but I have one idea in mind.


Can you separate your workflow into two parts? Use one workflow for the processing with the macro, and a second workflow to compile and send the tailored exception reports.
