Prevent Notifications to yourself

  • 1.  Prevent Notifications to yourself

    Posted 16 days ago
    Good afternoon all!

    I have a table for tasks.  Within the tasks table I have a field with a user list called Additional Task Followers.  This way we can select who gets notifications.  I also have a field for Assigned To which is the person the task is assigned to.

    I have a formula field for Users To Receive Notifications and it combines these two lists.  So it takes Assigned To and Additional Task Followers and makes them one list.

    I have a notification setup so that anytime a task is added, changes, etc. it notifies this Users To Receive Notifications list.  How do I exclude the person making the changes?  It is annoying to get notifications emails everytime we do something.  But the problem is I need to do it dynamically as multiple people could edit that task.

    I just utilized a test app, and setup this formula to accomplish what you outlined here:
    var text Users=UserListToEmails(ToUserList(ToUserList([Assigned To]),[Additional Task Followers]));
    var text LastModifiedEmail=UserToEmail([Last Modified By]);


    You could continue the pattern to contain all 20 possible choices for your List-User field. With this formula list user field in place, you would then trigger your notification to go to this list, and it will exclude whomever last edited the record.
