What is a Notification Node?

This node helps you automatically send emails to yourself, to specific team(s), or peer(s) to notify a successful execution in a Workflow.

Points to Remember
  1. It is typically used at the end of a workflow to inform about a successful execution of a workflow. However, you can use it between any two nodes if you wish to receive information at the midst of a workflow.
  2. There is an additional feature in the notification node i.e it only sends notification if there is some incoming data from the desired previous node.(its optional)
  3. You can modify the message to send any information about the execution of a workflow.
