    You can manage your job notifications by changing their name and the email address or addresses where you want them sent. Separate the email addresses with commas.

  16. To modify an already existing notification, select it and click Edit.
  17. Change the notification name and the recipient email, then click OK to save the changes.
  18. To create a new notification, either use the New button, or the Copy button. Edit the dialog fields as shown, and save the changes.
  19. To delete a notification, select it and click Delete.
Whenever the properties of a job are changed, TotalFlow Production Manager checks the values of 1 sided / 2 sided and Copies. If both your conditions are true (that is, the job is single-sided and there is more than one copy), you receive an email notification.
