ClosedSelecting a Template for Notification Emails

Before release 2015 R2, using templates to send notification emails—discussed in this section—was not available.

An Email Template drop-down has been added to the General tab of the Revise, Reject, and Approve sub-action’s admin page to allow admins to associate an Email Designer template with the sub-action.

[System Generated Email] will always be the first option in the Email Template menu. If [System Generated Email] is selected, CPQ Cloud will continue to send the default, system generated email to the appropriate recipient whenever the sub-action is invoked.

Deployed Email Designer templates in the Commerce Process will appear below [System Generated Email] in the Email Template drop-down. If an Email Designer template is selected, CPQ Cloud will use the template to build the email that is sent to the appropriate recipient whenever the sub-action is invoked.
