  • Hi Jou,

    Its not possible using OOB configurations, as Ben has already described.

    Nintex is one great option, but only cost-viable if you have Nintex licenses in-place already for other stuff and you can utilize the product for such requirements.

    Alternative option is to either write some custom code based solution that executes when Project save/publish even triggres. but this requires developement background and expertise.

    using SQL schedule task to query and send emails is also another, and relatively easier option if you know how to write SQL queries and your requirement is not to send notification on run-time basis. This blog can help you get going with SQL option: http://www.brentozar.com/archive/2014/10/send-query-results-sql-server-agent-job/

    hope this helps.

  • Hi Jon,

    Emails cannot be configured this way.  You would have to use some custom event handler to do this, probably via a 3rd party tool such as Nintex.
