How to send a document at specific stage of a workflow

Did you know that it’s possible to send a document at a specific stage of workflow in M-Files, for example, when it becomes active or is due to expire? With Extension Kit you can configure this easily.

Here’s a use case to show you how you can send an email from the Extension Kit using Extended Email Notifications.

Send a Contract when it becomes active

Our created Contract goes through the workflow Document Workflow -1. When Contract entered state Active we want to send it to both parties included in the Contract.

Besides sending an email when Contract enters workflow state, Extension Kit allows you to send emails when object is created, object is changed, scheduled, run once, object changed state and OnComment. For more detailed information find Extension Kit documentation here.
