  • Question

  • Hi, I have an interesting request from one of my customers and off the bat, I'm not quite sure how to address this one. My customer is an education institution and they load new students for various different schools and campuses on a daily basis. Instead of sending 1000 emails n day, they would like one daily report to go out to each school with the new students that were created that day. Any ideas welcome! thx

  • Hi QRHughes,

    For me, the simplest solution is to use a batch job (scheduled task) to launch a PoSh script. This script will get all new students (where creation date is today), split them regarding their school and put in a mail.

    That the basic idea, because FIM does not have the capabilities to do that.

    Regards,

  • Thank you Sylvain... Now why didn't I think of that...:-) as usual where FIM fails, PS comes to the rescue...! Maybe the FIM Dev team should just create a bunch of PS activities for the next release :-|

    Thx

  • Well, that a nice request!

    You can also try to using C# if you want some performances (look at this fork of FimClient by Predica)

    But you will need more time to develop the solution.
