We have a notification period whereby the job goes on "hold" for up to two months while the public are notified of the job. The end date of this notification is stored in the extended job properties. The job then continues after that date.
Is there a way to either:
- have the job in a hold status and programmatically end the hold on the stored date (and send a notification); or
- have the job status being custom ("in notification period" for example) and then kick off a step (notify) on the stored date?
There isn't anything out of the box that performs the actions you're looking for, but of the options you laid out the first would be the most feasible to customize yourself.
You could create a bit of custom code that scans through the Extended Property table for the target date and then removes the hold using our public SDK for the target date. You could then wire that into a Windows Scheduled process that runs once a day to perform the check.
Thanks Michael. I figured that'd be the case.
We'll give it a go and see what we can come up with.
Is there any out of the box way to send notification after pending days or due date? Please advise.
