This script statement can only be used in the Process tab of a notification. It adds the specified user, user group or email address to the list of recipients that should be notified. Calendars can also be specified. In this case, the recipient is only notified if a defined calendar keyword applies.

Recipients that have already been specified are overwritten because this script statement does not change the Notification object. The modified recipient list only applies for the particular execution.

Refer to the report to see the recipients that have been added by this script statement.

Note that the user must be indicated in the format User name/Department which complies with the name of the User object.


The following example adds the user "BU/AE" to the list of responsible recipients in a notification. This user is only notified if a valid calendar day exists in the calendar "READINESS".


The second example informs all members of the user group "ADMIN".
