    When is an email notification sent to a POLine's Interested Users?


    The notification for a PO Line's Interested Users is sent as follows:
    • Electronic materials:
      •  "Notify User Upon Receiving/Activation" triggers the "Interested In Letter" when the task, found in the "Electronic Resources Activation Task List", is activated, and "Done".
    • For Physical materials,
      • "Notify User Upon Receiving/Activation" offers two options:
        •  Receiving: Notification is sent when the item is received in the Acquisition Department.
          • If the item is still "In Process Items" (can be found in "Receiving in Department"), email is sent when the task is "Done".
        • Hold Item", a Physical Item Request will be created when the new item went through Scan In at the item location's Circulation Desk.
    • Note:
      • "Notify upon cancelation" - means that the Interested User will be notified, if the POL is canceled.
      • If the PO line was created via a purchase request, the Notify user upon receiving/activation and Notify upon cancelation are enabled by default. If the purchase request was a physical type, the hold item checkbox on the interested users tab will not be enabled.
