Communications Centre Templates - There are often requirements to use the bulk email capability of bxp software (bxp) on a semi-regular or even very regular basis. Creating the HTML emails from scratch, storing them somewhere else or having to customise the templates frequently can make templates cumbersome to manage. For this reason there is a template storage facility within bxp for email templates. http://www.bxpsoftware.com/wixi/index.php?title=Communications_Centre_-_Templates
SMS and Email Outcome Functionality - From time to time, it may be necessary to send either a SMS or an email as part of an outcome, to internal users or external customers.This is possible through the External or Internal Communications section of the Outcome Manager http://www.bxpsoftware.com/wixi/index.php?title=Form_-_Outcome_Manager
The KeyStat module is one of the most versatile modules in bxp.It allows reports and other information to be generated from various databases and perform vast customisation of the returned data.The main part of the module is the key stat workbook which stores all the individual tabs associated with a workbook.
When using Email-2-Form there can occasionally be issues with long emails (usually a result of spam emails). The default storage size for the body of the email (not including attachments) was 64Kb, which is a LOT of text. We've now increased this to 16MiB. This should cut out occasional issue emails with very long bodies.
Type | Maximum length -----------+------------------------------------- TINYTEXT | 255 (2 8−1) bytes TEXT | 65,535 (216−1) bytes = 64 KiB MEDIUMTEXT | 16,777,215 (224−1) bytes = 16 MiB LONGTEXT | 4,294,967,295 (232−1) bytes = 4 GiB
Upon review of generating a PDF when using a communications template: To keep the file size down the image is linked not embedded. If the image is stored on a bxp server then the image isn't included in the PDF. Security means that only validly logged in users will be able to get to the image. It is All n One's advice that when setting up templates that the images for your PDF are stored on a public server of the clients, with the public unsecured URL used.
