You select an Email Message ID when you configure Extender Events (for details, View Events, Scripts & WF) and on the Workflow Template Action setup (when using a SendEmail action) (for details, Workflow Templates - Screen Guide).
Tip: Message templates can be exported and imported to save time re-keying similar messages
Message Templates Field List
A message ID is a unique code of up to 16 characters that identifies a message template.
Enter a description of up to 60 characters for the message template.
Enter a subject line for the email message. If creating a template for I/M Notes, leave the Subject blank.
Enter the body of the message/note template. The body of the message/note template can be as long as you need it to be. Variables can be inserted in the message template. See below.
Enter a comment up to 250 characters for the message template.
You can add variables to the subject line and body of your email message and/or to the contents of your I/M Note. For more information, see Message Template Variables
You can include standard attachments to message templates used in Extender scripts and workflow actions.
Insert a row
Browse to select files to attach to the email.
Repeat for all files you want to attach to the email.
Tip: Use UNC Path and ensure that all users who email can access the folders.
How it works:
When you load the message template in a script, Extender adds the attachments configured in the template automatically.
You can also attach files dynamically to the email in a script using email.attach("filename")
Email and attachments
e = Email()
e.load(“template name”) # ← adds any attachments from the email template
e.attach(“filename”) #← also add this file dynamically in the script
Using HTML messages
Email templates are sent as HTML if they contain "<html>" and "</html> Tags.
To add a line, you must use <BR> or include <p>my text</p> around each line.
If copying your existing text email templates, make sure you add <BR> wherever a new line is required.
To add a logo to the email message, use a hyperlink with an image source file to include a link to a logo saved on your website or another accessible site.
Insert an image / logo example
<p><a title="Orchid Systems Events" href="https://www.orchid.systems/events"><img src="https://www.orchid.systems/sites/default/files/inline-images/OrchidWebsite_Email.png" alt="Orchid Website" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="d728cc57-5309-4c73-8aa8-5d2bdc7bed25" /></a></p>
Orchid module doesn't include an HTML Editor, so we suggest you use an online editor (e.g. https://html-online.com/editor/) then paste the HTML code into the Extender Email editor.
