Is it possible to have Alteryx notify me when a workflow kicks off/completes?
You can set up a workflow event to send an email either before or after a workflow runs. If choosing after, there are multiple options to choose from depending on what you want.
To set up the Event:
Click anywhere on the blank workflow canvas to open the Workflow Configuration menu. From there, click over to the Events tab and make sure the "Enable Events" box is checked:
Click the Add button and select Send Email:
When the next dialog box comes up, select when you want the Event to run:
Before Run: sends email before beginning the run of the workflow. Can be helpful when the Scheduler queue is backed up and you want to know when the workflow starts
After Run: when the workflow completes regardless of success/failure
After Run With Errors: Only sends the email if the workflow fails due to an error
After Run Without error: Only sends email if the workflow completes without any errors.
Disabled: No emails will send until enabled
Finally, fill out the rest of the information. The most common issue with the remaining set up is the SMTP settings. It is often necessary to check with IT to ensure you have the correct information entered:
The subject and body sections are auto filled with commonly desired information including workflow name (Subject) and the output log (Body), You can add/edit the items included to suit your needs for each event.
