Version upgrade notes

Icon

From version 7.1706 onwards, the Email Notification service no longer depends on Windows Tasks Scheduler service.

From version 7.1706 onwards, to configure the Email Notification service, please refer to Email notification about write, review, and validate assignments section in the page "Project Configuration Settings".

 

Task Scheduler built into Windows, can be used to enable ExamDeveloper to automatically send out email reminders for users with incomplete assignments.

In order to send periodic notifications to user about their pending work assignments, the server must be configured correctly.

Icon

curl is a free utility that calls web URLs. It must be downloaded and extracted on your server before proceeding with this configuration.

You may acquire the latest copy of this utility from here.

 

To get the emails sent out automatically, set up a Task in the Task Scheduler.

  1. Go to Start → Control Panel → Administrative Tools → Task Scheduler and click Create a Basic Task in the right pane under Actions.
     
  2. In the Create Basic Task Wizard window that opens, enter the name of the task and a description of the task in the box and click Next.
  3. Select Daily from the Trigger list of radio buttons, click Next.
  4. Set up the Start date and the time that the emails should be sent and how often it should be resent in the Recur every: __ days box, click Next.
  5. Select the button that says Start a program, choose Next.
  6. In the Program/script box, enter the physical location where curl.exe has been extracted after downloading such as C:\curl\ folder in our example.
  7. In the Add arguments (optional) box, specify the argument path “-k <Host-server>/<WebApp>/Unauthenticated/NotificationMailer.aspx“, where <Host-server> is the ExamDeveloper domain server ("https://WIN-VSGF1NBSVPB" in our example) and <WebApp> is the ExamDeveloper app name ("ExamDeveloper" in our example). Click Next.

    Make sure you use the actual URL of the application

    Icon

    When entering in the path, make sure to use the actual URL that is going to be used by users to access the application, and not "localhost" or IP address, while entering the path. The task scheduling program will not work correctly if this is not observed.



  8. Click Finish.
     
    The task can now be seen in the Task Manager menu.

 In case you are running Windows 2003 Server, you can click here.

To send the emails out automatically, set up a Task in the Task Scheduler.

  1. Go to Start Control Panel Scheduled Tasks.
  2. Double-click Add Scheduled Task on the right to launch the Scheduled Task Wizard.
  3. Click Browse button to navigate to the curl.exe app that we need to run. This is the location on the hard drive where curl.exe has been extracted. Select the file, click Open, and click Next.
  4. Next, type a name for the task. In this case, we have used ExamDeveloper Email Notifications.
  5. Set up the Start time, days of the week and the number of weeks for which the emails must be sent in the following window and click Next.
  6. Select the Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish checkbox and choose Finish.
  7. The advanced options now become visible for the program to be scheduled.
  8. Add argument path “-k http://<Host-server>/<WebApp>/Unauthenticated/NotificationMailer.aspx“, where you must replace <Host-server> and <WebApp> by the actual values. In our example below, the path to the utility curl.exe is C:\Utilities\ExamDeveloper\External, but you must make sure that these values are as they are actually in your case. Make sure that the check box next to Enabled (scheduled task runs at specified time) is selected. Click OK to finish scheduling the task.
