e-mail

E-mail is electronic mail. AgilePoint NX provides a number of e-mail integrations.

Integrations and Connectors

AgilePoint NX integrates in these ways with e-mail:

  • Activities in Process Builder
  • Reminders and notifications
  • Approvals
  • Event Service
  • Launch apps with e-mail (AgileConnector)

Activities in Process Builder

You can use out-of-the-box activities for e-mail to execute actions in process-based apps.

An activity is a functional unit, or task, in a process-based app. Activities that integrate with a third-party system provide access to the API functionality for that system in a simple, point-and-click, form-entry format. This means that you can easily leverage APIs without writing code.

These actions use the e-mail event service.
