    Instead of delivery to an email address, is there a way to configure a smart notification to deliver to a printer?

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Greg,

    I know this is a repaeting theme with me when responding to your questions but... Why?

    By design smartnotes was made to be online rich content that actionable from a dashboard or email. Reporting Services always filled the gap of printed transational and historical statements.

    I think I could come up with a hair brained scheme but it would probably make more sense to do it with RS.
    If any of my answers were helpful an endorsement on LinkedIn would be much appriciated! www.linkedin.com/pub/matthew-nye/1a/886/760/

    To tell you the truth, Matthew... I don't know why. I was just asked if it could be done by the gal that designs all of our smart notes. I said I'd ask here.
    I'm guessing that they are NOT wanting a blank piece of paper printed out if no data qualifies on the printer.... as would likely happen with an RS solution... but if something triggers the notification, they'll want a print. But that's just a guess on my part. The gal that was asked to do this probably won't be back until Monday... but I'll check with her then.

    At first blush, if I was going to McGuyver something to make that happen, I'd consider setting up a dedicated email address and juryrigging something for that address to print off anything sent to it rather than trying to trick Smart Notes into doing anything special.

    Email -> Printer gateways is an issue that already has solutions that can be as simple as having special Outlook rules set up ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290716 ) to setting up an *nix account and having a cron job periodicly pull and print emails ( http://www.jasonellison.net/files/E...ateway.pdf )

    It might not be optimal, especially given you don't know what the purpose is. But on the face of it - it does look like it'd be the quickest, least painful, direction to go.
