E-mail Templates

Introduction

With AutoRank Pro's e-mail templates you can specify what information you want in an e-mail, what type of e-mail to send (text or HTML), and you can even include attachments with your e-mail.

Control Panel Editing Interface

All changes to your e-mail templates will be made through the control panel. From the control panel menu, locate and click on the E-mail Messages link in the Templates section. AutoRank Pro will load a page where you will be able to select which of the template files you want to edit. Select the template you want to edit from the list, and press the Load E-mail button.

You will be returned to the same page, however now there will be several text input fields where you will enter the information to be used for the e-mail. The first time you load a template, the default values will be loaded and displayed in these fields. You can edit them how you like.


When you are satisfied with the changes you have made, click on the Save button at the top or bottom of the page. All of the changes you make will be immediate. The next time that e-mail is sent, the updated template will be used.

Attachments

If you want to attach any files to your e-mail messages you will first need to upload those files to the server. They should be uploaded to the data/attachments directory of your AutoRank Pro installation. Once you have one or more files in that directory, the attachments selection field will be displayed when you edit your e-mail templates. Only the attachments that you select will be sent, and you can select as many as you want.

Template Values

Each of the template files has it's own set of valid template values.
