Notification messages of data update failure are not sent when you use the PowerPivot for SharePoint 2013 add-in for SQL Server 2012 SP1 or SQL Server 2014, even after installing CU7.


This issue with the email notifications was fixed with Cumulative update package 7 for SQL Server 2012 SP1, but we are seeing cases where the email notifications still do not happen, even after installing CU7 for SQL Server 2012 SP1.


The PowerPivot for SharePoint update is not complete until the PowerPivot Configuration Tool is run.


Run the PowerPivot for SharePoint Configuration Tool to complete the CU7 update for PowerPivot for SharePoint, and then the email notifications will begin working.
