SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 now includes the ability to automatically send notification emails to track the status of your studies. The email setup can be found under Simulation > Options > System Options tab > Email Notification settings. Here you are required to provide the email server information for SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 Email Notifications.
The following scenarios will send email notifications:
- If a study experiences numerical errors during the run and fails to solve, an email is sent
- If the option ‘Send E-mail for all studies when Simulation is completed‘ is enabled in the Simulation System options, an email will be sent when a study has finished solving
- If the option ‘E-mail when Simulation is completed‘ is enabled in a particular study (under its study Properties > Notification tab), an email is only sent when this study finishes solving
- If the option ‘Time based notification‘ is enabled in a particular study (under its study Properties > Notification tab), an email is sent periodically at given time intervals of the status. The units can be set for seconds, minutes or hours. NOTE: The ‘Email when simulation is completed’ option must also be enabled in the study’s properties.
