    Hi Laurence,

    It is currently not possible to launch any outside programs/applications from MDM workflow. However, there is a notification step in MDM workflow which sends e-mail using an SMTP server. You could then use an SMTP client to see what was sent. The server must be configured in the mds.ini file. This is described in page 197 of the Data Manager Reference Guide.

    Hope this helps,

    Richard

      Laurence,

      Please set Max Time Launch to 0 hours instead of 1 hour. This is how, the workflow is triggered instantly. Another way of automatic triggering is already explained by Richard LeBlanc- Setting Max number of Records to 1.

      Hope this helps,

      Regards,

      Rajani Kumar
