Several templates are available, each containing a body that differs according to the message that you wish to send out. This section allows you to use a customized message to send e-mails.
This screen consists of two zones:
Templates on the left,
Editing window on the right.
Modifying a template (HTML)
Each template has some content called the “body” (like in an HTML page). This consists of unformatted text that may contain simple HTML markers that may finalize the formatting.
These templates can be modified and may contain keywords which will later be replaced with values. For example, a keyword may automatically display the user’s name.
To view the contents of a template, click on Edit. The editing window consists of two zones:
- The preview of the template at the top,
- The editing window at the bottom. There are two buttons in this window:
|Insert a variable||Allows you to select variables that will later be replaced with real values when the message is sent.|
|Apply default template||Allows resetting the template to its initial presentation.|
