      Hi,

      what is the length limitation to send a notification to list of recipients(if i have a great no of recepitents) at a stretch. else how to manage the huge recipients by automatically adding the remaining list of recipients to CC,once the list of recipients limit in TO address is crossed.

          Hi,

          The recipient column is restricted to 320 characters. So the better way to send notifications for large number of users is as below

          Create a adhoc role with email address as null and notification preference as MAILHTML. Assign all the recipient users to this role.
          Now sending a notification to the role, will send the notification to all its assigned recipients.

          You can use special message attributes to specify additional recipients for a notification e-mail message, if the primary recipient has a notification preference to receive individual e-mail notifications.

          The CC, BCC values can be specified as the message attribute as shown below

          #WFM_CC - Define this attribute to specify one or more secondary recipients for a notification e-mail message. These recipients are stored in the CC (Carbon Copy) field of the message header.

          #WFM_BCC - Define this attribute to specify one or more additional recipients for a notification e-mail message whose identities are not included in copies of the message sent to the primary and secondary recipients. These recipients are stored in the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) field of the message header.
