Sending emails as a result of some changes to data is a common requirement we've been hearing from customers of Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS). In previous versions, we already added a function that allows you to fire up the client email software from your app. In the new version we rolled out a couple of weeks ago we added a new function that can manage the whole email processing inside VBCS — on the backend/server/cloud side.
When you define a new trigger on a business object you now have the option to add "send email notification" step to your logic flow.
When you are defining this, you'll be able to pick or define a template for your email. The email template can have parameters to increase reusability. These parameters can then have their value set from expressions that can include values of fields from your objects.
Here is a complete demo video that shows you how to add an email notification to an event on your business object:
