When certain conditions for a table occurs I am sending out a notification to users. I want to create a new button, which sends out the same notification as a reminder to the user. Is there an API that can be used to achieve this?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,

I suggest making a simple formula URL button to Toggle a checkbox field when clicked and put up a message saying "Notification resent".    (I can help with the Syntax for that if you need assistance).  Then change your Notification conditions for triggering to include if that checkbox field changed.

How should i change the filed back to 'unchecked' once the notification has been sent out?

I should be able to handle the syntax, struggling with the checkbox to be unchecked once the notification is sent out

I"m not sure which field you mean.  I suggest that the email be triggered when that resend checkbox changes.  So we just need to change the checkbox  to be opposite what it is to trigger the resend.

You can have the button check AND un-check the button in one click.  Just make the notification go out when the it is checked (so you don't get duplicates).
