How to mass-send notifications for a set of Approvals that did not generate emails originally?

Version 1

    Details

    A temporary issue prevented approval emails from generating for several days for Service Request. Please advise, how to get all "Approval vote Tracking" (related to ServiceReq only) records that does not have email? And then execute "Service Request Approval Notification"?


    Resolution

    You can set up a saved search to return the records you are looking for;

    Log into the Admin role
    Select the Approval Vote Tracking workspace
    Click on 'Show All' in the upper left and select 'New Saved Search'
    Add a criteria as in the screenshot below; this looks for records in Pending status that do not have an Email record linked to them.
    You can add parameters to check for the parentlink category to be Service Request, date ranges, or any other criteria to narrow the data set


    Unless the search returns thousands of records, this is relatively easy to handle manually.
    Set Page Size in the lower left to 100
    Highlight all 100 records (once you've verified they should all have emails sent)
    Select Action Menu - No category - Service Request Approval Notification
    This will run the action for all 100 highlighted records
    Click the 'forward' button to move to the next page of records
    Highlight all records displayed
    Select Action Menu - No category - Service Request Approval Notification
    This will run the notification action for the remaining records
