NAV2017 Notifications Part 2: Adding a notification to table 1518 My Notifications
Now we have to decide wheter or not we want add our new notification to table 1518, adding it means we give the user the possibility to disable and add extra conditions (depending on the function we use to add it) to the notification.
In order to add our new notification in table 1518 we have to create a new subscriber function which subscribes to the event called OnInitializingNotificationWithDefaultState in page 1518.
Now we’ve got two functions in table 1518 to choose from:
– InsertDefault (basic notification)
– InsertDefaultWithTableNum (conditional notification)
If we decide to give the user the possibility to disable the notification we should also check if the notification is enabled before sending it.
We can do that by one of the following functions in table 1518:
– IsEnabled (checks if present/enabled)
– IsEnabledForRecord (checks if present/enabled and if conditions were met)
Note: if the notification is not present in table 1518 the functions will return TRUE.
