Details

It is helpful to notify members of a queue when a new work item is created from a workflow.  This is often used as a reminder to log into the Enterprise Console.  A web form may be waiting on a response from one of the queue members.

A notification may be added by editing the queue.  Open the editor from Settings | Queue Management in the Enterprise Console.
