This page shows the email notifications sent during the approval process. For information on other emails the system sends, see the SAGE Suite Email Notifications article.
Who is Notified When and Why
SAGE sends a number of email notifications during the routing and approval process. The table below lists each notification type along with the trigger that generates the email and who it is sent to. SAGE generally sends emails to the person’s UW NetID address.
If a reviewer approves an eGC1 before receiving the email notification, then the system will not send the notification.
