how to notify if job hasn't started by a certain time?

Hi,

I want to send an email notification on a job within a process flow, if the job hasn't started by a certain time.

I know in the workflow properties settings of that job, there is a General Tab with a Time Checkpoint. I'm trying to use that and have it execute a Notification Object. But the problem I'm having is that none of the system variables available during the execution of the Notification Object have the Job Name that hasn't started.

The system variables
&$NAME#
&$ALIAS#
have either workflow name, or the name of the job running before this one.

Initially I thought I should put it in pre-conditions, but that only got executed once the previous job has finished.

I don't want to have to create a notification object for each job that I'm tracking.

Does anyone do this? Any suggestions on how to get the job name?
