The directors in my organization take attendance at the beginning of each class. They do this by creating records through a custom object called 'Absences'. It is imperative that the parents know ASAP when the student has been marked absent. The absence object has a master-detail relationship to Contact.
My question is: How to create a workflow rule that automatically email alert's the contacts household email address when an absence has been created for that contact?
What I've done so far: Created a workflow rule that triggers whenever a new absence is created. When I go to create the email alert, there aren't any recipients for Contacts.
Thanks in advance!
