There was a question asked on OTN in January about whether there was a way to stop a notification being sent to a user for one particular notification:
We are using Oracle Applications 11i (188.8.131.52)
Notification is sending to both e-mail and Worklist Web pages.
My Question is ,For a particular Notification i would like to send only to Worklist Web pages (Not to e-mail) . Can I?
This got me thinking about whether I’d already addressed the question – there are a couple of posts which I’ve written over the years which come close, but nothing which quite hits the exact answer.
- Can I use a profile to conditionally send a notification via email? (June 2011)
- How can I stop one notification going by email to one particular person? (October 2011)
I think that between the two of those posts, they offer an answer to the problem. The first post will still send an email, but with no content other than an instruction to log into the application and verify the notification. The second post provides information on how to make a more intrusive change to the system – this requires more code but seems to fit the problem neater than the first.
My preference would still to be to use a trigger, as described in the second post, which gives a lot more flexibility for future requirements.
