Notifications preferences

DCP-o-matic can notify the user when jobs have completed. These notifications can be either or both of a message box on-screen (if Message box is ticked) and email (if Email is ticked). If you enable email notifications you can fill in the details of the emails you want to send.

The bottom box in the tab is the contents of the email that should be sent. DCP-o-matic will replace the ‘magic’ strings $JOB_NAME and $JOB_STATUS in the with the details of the job that has completed.
