Email Message Customization

Specific Event

   

When you are scheduling or editing an event, you can customize an email message template for the specific event by editing, rearranging, or deleting the content and variables—code text that Event Center uses to substitute for your specific user or event information.

  

Future Event

   

You can customize email message templates for all future events you schedule on your Event Center website. The changes you make on this level automatically apply to any future event that you schedule.

  
Important:  

You can delete or rearrange variables, but never change the text in a variable. For example, in this variable, %ParticipantName%, do not change the text ParticipantName within the percentage signs. If you change it, Event Center cannot substitute the correct text from your user or event information.

  
  

Customize an Email Message for a Specific Event

       
1    On the Schedule an Event page or Edit Event page, in the Email Messages section, select the email message that you want to customize.
2    Select a template in the Select email message drop-down list, and then select Edit.
3    Make your changes on the Edit Event Email: [template name] page.   

We recommend that you set up an email account that you can use exclusively for producing events. You can specify that address in the Reply to email box. For example, you can set up an account with the address events@your_company.com.

  
4    Select Save > OK.

Customize an Email Message for Future Events

        
1    On the left navigation bar of your Event Center website, select Host an Event > Email Templates.
2    Choose the type of email message you want to edit in the For: drop-down list, and then select one of the templates in the HTML or plain text section, depending on your need.
3    Select Edit.
4    Make your changes on the Template name: [template name] page.
5    Select Save.   
Tip        

To revert the email message to its original, default state, select Revert to Default.

  
  

About Variables in an Email Template

 

A variable is composed of text surrounded by two percentage signs. Each variable used in Event Center email templates is replaced in actual messages by corresponding information specified in an attendee’s registration data, in your user profile, on the Event Information page, and so on.

  

The following table describes the variables that may require further explanation.
