Add ability to send e-mails from within a Portal activity
It would be beneficial to be able to send custom e-mails from within a PEM portal activity, as part of the workflow. For example, when a task for a specific group is the next task to be executed, the activity could be coded to send an e-mail to the members of that groups letting them know. Or once provisioning is done, the activity can be coded to send an e-mail notification to specific parties with specific details.
This could be accomplished either by having an e-mail dialog object to add to the activity, similar to the screen dialog object, or by using an API call. In regards to the e-mail dialog object option, it would allow the design and layout of the e-mail to be done similar to the screen dialog, but would also include a method for supplying the subject and "To" e-mail addresses.
