In this tutorial we will show you the fantastic posibilities that "Business Jobs - Notifier" can offer.
The difference between "Business Job" and "Events" is that events are based on an action in the gantt e.g. a Movement. The Business job will look at the conditions in a filter, and when the condition is met, sleipner will generate a message.
The message can be send as Email or a Text File.
In this example we will build a job that send a message for flights with departure 1-2 hours from now.
Open the Automation Factory / Business Jobs
Click on New
In this example we use Notifier
The Notifier Job type can be used for "Company Activities" and Documents (see Document warnings
We want to check the Departure time that is a Company Activity
The legfilter is where we control what should trigger the message.
You have the option to use all the fileds in Company Activity
You can either use the "Expression" or the "Free Test".
In this example we use "Free Text" because we want to compare against the actual time.
Our example will check for departures between 1-2 hours from now.
When you use the "Free Text" you get a help dialog with the available fields.

The Notifier messages can be send as
Text files can be used to send Sita messages. But in that case you need to build the full SITA fomatted message in the integration factory.
Message & Header
Create the message and header in the Integration Factory Messages Templates
When in Text mode, you can edit the display format of the date.
This field is mandatory even when creating text messages.
You can select a static period or
specify a Period template.
When using current day you must add 1 day after.
Sleipner will only send the message one time per day. If the period is more than one day and the filter condition is met then the message will be send every day.
In this example Sleipner will check for composition changes every 30 second.
Note: Maybe you have a larger cycle in the COM
