While an email is in general a reliable service, delivery of messages is not guaranteed. This means that TimeTraq can send an email message successfully but the message still may not be delivered for any number of reasons, including, but not limited to: 1. failures on the TAMU mainframe email server 2. failures on a system member's email server 3. local spam filters 4. Preferences have not been setup to receive email notifications. Managers are more likely than any other group to have this problem because they are often choosing to rely on an email notification to instruct them to approve their employees' timesheets. Timekeepers should ensure that managers are trained to realize that they need to approve their employees' timesheets at the end of every reporting period whether they get an email from workday or not.
