Notifications templates can be edited to fit your individual branding and requirements.

The template can be edited in two versions. One in HTML for email clients that support HTML and another for plaintext. The system will automatically fallback to plain text if the email client does not support HTML.

You can enable and disable all email notifications through the Status toggle switch.

The email can then be edited using the HTML editor or plain text editor. For advanced users you can also edit the HTML code directly by selected the “<>” option at the top right of the editor.

The following section will discuss how to use replacement variable in your templates.
