Template Formatting for System Emails

Overview

There are a variety of email templates that can be configured for sending communication to various constituent groups. They are found via the ‘System Email Templates’ link in the upper right corner of the System Homepage in Axiom. Please speak with your Account Manager regarding applicable use for specific templates.

All templates utilize HTML for formatting. The purpose of this article is to convey the syntax for inserting both template specific variables and system parameter variables.

Header Images

Images can be used in the headers of system emails. The optimal width for images in system email headers is 640px and there is no optimal height for these images.

Inserting Template-Specific Variables

Template specific variables can be found in the ‘Variables’ section (lower left hand corner of the relevant email template). To insert these variables in the message text, simply insert like this {variable_name}.

Example: the visit_date variable is inserted as {visit_date}

Inserting System Parameter Variables

System parameters can be found via the “System Parameters” link in the upper right corner of the System Homepage. System parameters can be inserted into email templates as variables. To insert these variables into the message text, simply insert like this {:variable_name}.

Example: the school_name_short system parameter is inserted as {:school_name_short}
