Tip #219: Exporting Data as an Email Attachment with Export Methods in Empower
Welcome back to Get Empowered! In the last Empower tip-of-the-week blog for Empower Chromatography Data System, we began a new series on working with Export Methods and learned how to export a table of data out of Empower. (Tip #218).
In this week’s tip, we will continue our series on Export Methods and learn how to export data as an email attachment. There are two ways to export data as an email attachment.
Let’s get started.
Specifying email addresses in the Export Method
From the ‘Fields’ tab of the Export Method, check ‘Send Email’ box, select the ‘Enter Address(es)’ radio button, and enter the email address for the recipient. To email to multiple recipients, separate the email addresses with a semicolon (figure 1).
Click ‘Verify’ to confirm the email address(es). Once the address(es) are successfully verified, click ‘OK’ (figure 2).
Export a Result and the email is received (figure 3).
Specifying email addresses in the Sample Set Method
Create a ‘Sample’ custom field, data type ‘Text,’ and name it something like ‘Email_Address’ or ‘Recipient’ (figure 4).
Enter the email address in the ‘Sample’ field within the Sample Set Method or post run, in Alter Sample (figure 5).
From the ‘Fields’ tab of the Export Method, check the ‘Send Email’ box, select the ‘Load From Field’ radio button, and click ‘Select’ (figure 6).
Expand the Sample list, select the ‘Sample Custom Field’ created in step 4, and click ‘OK’ (figure 7).
Save all changes to the ‘Export Method’ and exit from the Method Editor (figure 8).
Export a Result and the email is received (figure 9).
It’s that easy!
