Send an Email Notification when a new e2a Unmatched Email is Added to the e2a Unmatched Queue


Setup Flow for Email Notification


Do you need to set up an email alert whenever a new record is added to the Unmatched Queue? This article will show you how to do that with a Workflow Rule in Salesforce.


Let's Get Started


Before we move towards setting up the flow, we need to create an email template and an email alert to use later in the flow:

  1. Email Template: The email template can be created with the merge fields for the e2a unmatched email record, to add more context to the email notification. Read more on creating an email template in Salesforce, here: Create an Email Template in Lightning Experience. For the use in this FAQ, let's call our template Email Template for New Unmatched Email

  2. Email Alert: Next, we need to create an email alert by using the template Email Template for New Unmatched Email we created in the step above. In the email alert, we need to specify the template, the recipients of the email, and the sender address for the email. Once you have created the email alert, activate it for use later.
