A Forum reader recently asked this question:
"I want to trigger mail using Manual task driver based on value chage in a specific attribute. Is this possible?"
And here's the response from Jeff Johnson ...
Here is how I send email for any status other than success. I put this on the output transformation ...
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><policy>
<description>This policy sends email in event of a transaction without a SUCCESS code.</description>
<description>Email the status</description>
<comment xml:space="preserve">If the status level does not equal
SUCCESS, send an email alert to firstname.lastname@example.org.</comment> <comment
