Email Settings & Features:
Hi there, we are excited to announce that PerformFlow has launched a new update.
This update enables one of the most requested features by our users: Setting a reminder and an auto-action deadline for recipients’ email.
About Set Reminder
According to our users’ feedback, many people have been asking if they can set a reminder and/or a deadline for the approval email. With the goal to optimize users’ workflow, this new feature Set reminder allows recipients to set a time for a reminder or/and a deadline for the approval email not to miss any requestor emails and save their working time.
This feature is only available for two modes: Approval workflow and Combine All Modes.
How to set reminder
To use this feature, please follow these steps below:
Step 1: On the configuration menu, scroll down to Advanced Options, and click ‘Set reminder’.
Step 2: You will see this Set reminder box to edit.
Step 3: Click the ‘Enable’ to turn it on.
Send Reminder Email will send a reminder about the approval email to recipients after a selected time.
Set Auto Action Deadline is an option that enables you to set a deadline for the action of the recipient’s email. If after the chosen time the requested email has not been approved or rejected yet, PerformFlow will automatically make a decision (approve/reject) based on what the form owner has set.
Step 4: Adjust the time and the unit at the following boxes of each feature. We have three options in terms of the time unit: minutes, hours, and days.
At ‘Set Auto Action:‘, the form owner can choose either ‘Auto Approve’ or ‘Auto Reject’.
Step 5: After you have set the time and the auto action after the deadline, remember to click Save to finish your adjustment.
This is a demo reminder email that you may get after a set time:
An auto-action email may come after that due to the expiration. For example, as you can see, here is an auto-approval email:
That’s it! Go to our add-on and try to set a time for a reminder email and a deadline for an approval email with PerformFlow!
