Webex sites include customizable email templates in HTML and plain text formats. The Email Template page indicates whether an HTML format version of a template is available.

HTML versions are not available for customized text-based email templates.


Ensure that you change the templates for each language that the site supports. When you change a template, use the same language as the template. For example, when editing a French-language template, use French.

For information about enabling the email templates option, contact your Webex account manager.

Make joining Webex meetings easier for Skype for Business users. You can use the %LyncURI% variable to add a Skype for Business link to the following Productivity Tools templates:

  • MC MeetingInfo For Attendee(Productivity Tools)

  • Invitation to a meeting in progress_PR(Productivity Tools)


The link may not work for Mac users because the Mac operating system does not recognize SIP URIs. Mac users can copy and paste the URI into Skype to dial instead.
