Not sure where to post this :

A new feature is requested whereby an option is added on the save search screen to let Alfresco automatically execute a saved search (daily, weekly, or monthly) and email the changes in the result list compared to the previous execution.

This way users would be alerted once new information regarding a certain topic would be entered into the system.

Implementation note: It should be possible to very cheaply implement this. The system 'only' needs to record when the search was executed last time. The new search, when triggered, would limit the search to documents modified or created between the last execution and now. Besides a 'last executed' field a saved search would also need a frequency marker (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly). Automatic searches should be executed starting at a system wide configurable time of the day.

Note: If that functionality already exists could someone highlight the steps on how to do. I cannot find it.
