Itemise automation actions taken by the cron in the daily report emails

Eduardo González shared this idea 7 months ago
Under Consideration

Restore the previous to V7 style of cron jobs email template where we had lot of info about suspensions, invoices...., not now we only have the number of actions taken and we need to go to the long activity job to find important things..

For example, before the v7 update on the email I received notifications of what accounts were suspended or what accounts had problems to suspensions or invoice notifications like this:

1 Unpaid Invoice Payment Reminders Sent to Invoice Numbers 4055

3 Overdue Invoice Reminders Sent
- Sent First Notice to User XXXXX
- Sent First Notice to User YYYYY
- Sent First Notice to User ZZZZZZ

3 Services Suspended
- SUCCESS: Reseller 1 - xxx.es - Tim Burton (Service ID: 499 - User ID: 342)
- SUCCESS: Básico - yyyyy.com - Roger Moore (Service ID: 670 - User ID: 211)
- SUCCESS: Avanzado - zzzzzz.com.es - Pamela Anderson (Service ID: 610 - User ID: 404)

0 Services Suspended
- ERROR: Manual Suspension Required - Function Not Supported by Module - Dedicated S1 - server.xxxx.comm - Brad Pitt (Service ID: 70 - User ID: 25)

The problem is now we have only the number of items on each event, so, we need to navigate to the looooong activity report to find each cancelation or problem. This is not usefully, because when we received the emails with cancelations before update we can take action immediately.

I think this is a BIG fail on the new version of WHMCS

Guys, any update here?? The new cron report email really sucks..it's so easy to miss important information. Honestly an email that says "102 things have been performed...good luck reading the activity log to figure our what we did" would be literally just as helpful as the current email. At least give us the option - this sucks!


I fully agree, the previous version of the Cron Job email was perfect.

The option to switch between the two should be an added, or revert to the old version.


I agree with Eduardo. Instead of 20 seconds reviewing the cron report I need to spend 10-15 minutes daily searching through 1000s of logs lines, with big chances if missing something important.
