Email Alert Notifications

SCMP sends email alert notifications when predefined actions occur within the system and all email alert notifications are subscription-based. Email alerts default to OFF.

Email alert notifications are sent to all individual users with the same roles, belonging to the same company, provided they subscribed to receive email notifications. Alerts are role-based, in that all people with the same user role receive the same email, assuming they subscribed to them.

  • SCMP does not send email alerts based on user IDs. If four new POs are issued to a Supplier, SCMP sends the same alert to all subscribed users with the same role for that Supplier company. SCMP does not determine POs 1 & 2 belong to a specific user ID, and POs 3 & 4 belong to a different user ID.
  • A group email alias can be set up.

For Exostar only, email alerts show up in the Network Console.

The email Subject starts with Boeing 787 or SCMP to distinguish it from a SupplyPass or BSCP email alert.
