Expand/Collapse item  Overview

You can create a default message to use when sending reports, journals, registers, and forms by e-mail or fax.

The message that is used depends on how specific the company, document type, and document is for the message. Multiple messages can be defined for a single document. For example, one message can be defined for all documents in all companies and all modules, and another message can be defined for a specific document in a specific company and module. When multiple messages exist for a document, the message used is based on a hierarchy where messages for specific documents are used first. For more information, see Electronic Delivery Message Hierarchy.
