So I am working on a SharePoint list that is to work as a database for inspection requests. Along with all the information of the request, in the list there will be three columns that each specify the name of a person(engineer) on the network that is linked to the request. I would like these people to be email notified when submitting a new request and also be notified upon Approval/Rejection of the inspection. I am very new to SharePoint online and am not sure what the correct direction would be for this. I've heard there is built in task completion functions within SharePoint but am unsure if this would be ideal for my situation or how it would work(as a column or some external workflow or what)? Can anyone help lead me on the right path?
What you want is a workflow, I think this will help you out:
