About Customizing Email Messages

   

You can customize the default email messages for your preferences. You can delete variables, but do not change the text within the percentage signs (example, %ParticipantName%).

    

If you change these, Training Manager does not substitute the correct text from your profile or registration information. For descriptions of variables, see Email Message Variables.

    

You can edit the following options in the Edit Email message window.

    
  •      

    Email Subject: Specifies the text that appears in the subject line of the email message.

          

    To specify a new subject, type it into the box.

         

  •      

    Content: Specifies the content of the email message. The default content contains variables, which Training Center replaces with your training session information. You can rearrange, delete, or replace variables and text with specific information. Do not change the text within a variable.

         

   

Customize an Email Message

        
1    On the Schedule Training Session page or Edit Scheduled Training Session page, under Email options > Edit Email Options.
2    Select the email message that you want to customize.
3    Edit the email message. Be sure not to change the text within a variable. For descriptions of variables, see Email Message Variables.
4    To save your edited email message, select Update.
5    (Optional) To return the email message to the default message, select Reset to Default.       

If you select OK, the default email message replaces any edits that you have made.
