How many employees are we looking at? a few or a few hundered?
There may be an easier way than sending from the as400. Maybe using a PC and the task manager.
I will say this can be a tough thing to resolve. We tried a lot of things to get employees to enter thier time sheets on-line here. They always forget.
1. You can try sending a break message but they may just hit enter to get rid of it.
2. Sending an e-mail the may forget to check before going home on Friday.
The other issue is they may be out sick or using a vacation day and cannot enter it.
What we did to cut down on the problem was if it was not entered on Friday their supervisor got an e-mail during Monday payroll edit of everyone in the department who did not do it by Friday. Then they had to explain why it was not done on time.
There are less then 100 employees are working in the project so is there any other way to sneding email using AS400 only….as i want to use AS400 that is the primary goal..
You can use Advanced Job Sceduling which facilitate more options
I tried WRKJOBSCDE command and got the following error message:
Message ID . . . . . . : CPD0032 Severity . . . . . . . : 30
Message type . . . . . : Diagnostic

Cause . . . . . : An attempt was made to access a command without adequate
Recovery . . . : Obtain authority from the security officer or the command

The error message is as clear as it could be, do you really need us to tell you why you got the message?
You need someone with the authority foe WRKJOBSCDE
SNDMSG *ALLACT will send the message to all active users.
Maybe you can send the message at 3:30PM and again at 4:ooPM
Then have someone who has the appropriate authority do it.
We can’t help you with that. We can’t grant authority for you.
