Broadcast to Non-Yellowfin Email

Jasper Dan Estareja shared this question 8 months ago

Can Yellowfin send broadcast to email addresses that do not have Yellowfin account? Does this require a special license configuration?
I also noticed Email Users in our license page, will these Email Users be included in Access Filters?

Hello Japer,

After investigating the concern I found that Yes, we can send broadcast to external users when we have a multicast license (Your CSM should be able to help you with the multicast license).

Administration--> Admin console--> Roles

Please refer to the below link for complete information.

Hi Yamini,

Yellowfin environment details:
bc94223e784cc8ec409ff7a48a04e250

Thanks for the info regarding Multicast Access Filter Reports option. Another question though, what if I use a report with email addresses as a recipient list of the broadcast? Will that be considered as Multicast even if those emails listed have Yellowfin accounts?

Thanks,
Jasper

Hello Jasper,

With regards to your question-"I use a report with email addresses as a recipient list of the broadcast? Will that be considered as Multicast even if those emails listed have Yellowfin accounts?" Yes, it is considered as Multicast.

Let me know if you have any additional queries.

Hi Yamini,

So does this mean Access Filter will not work per recipient for that Broadcast? i.e. the Access Filter will be based on whoever created the Broadcast
Is this correct?

Thanks,
Jasper

Hello Jasper,

Hope you are doing well

Yellowfin sends the same report to each recipient unless you are using the "Access Filters" which will filter the report for each recipient. Below are the few articles for your reference

If you have any further questions, please let me know. You may try the same thing and see how it works for you.
