Send Automated Action email immediately?

on 6/5/14, 8:51 AM 815 views

I have created an Automated Action to send email to HR, 7 days before confirmation of any employee in the organization. I have created Server Action and changed confirmation date of one employee as well to test email flow. I got that email after around 2 hours. Is there any method or setting through which we can send email immediately for testing purpose?

Server actions with type 'Email' use ir_mail_server.send_email:

 """Sends an email directly (no queuing).

So maybe the condition or Timer for your automated action isn't working?


email_template.send_mail has a parameter force_send:

:param bool force_send: if True, the generated mail.message is
                immediately sent after being created, as if the scheduler
                was executed for this message only.
