Scheduling Email Reporting

The system provides the ability to receive information about Task fulfillment in a specified email. The system Administrator can define either a recurrence for this email or to receive it only once. You can specify the information to be received regarding Task States and Task Types. There is also an option to enable the inclusion of Task Log Messages in the reporting email. There can be several Email Recurrence Tasks with different parameters.
