Every email or Slack message sent from PlusPlus can be customized. That means you can tweak your notifications to look just like your organization wants them to!

While we do provide default notification templates, many of our customers value adding that zing of organizational language in their templates. Here's how to do that:

Customizing notification templates

The first requirement to customizing your notification templates is being a system administrator. The templates live in our settings, so to access it, head over to Profile Menu > Settings > Notification Templates.

You can find all notifications there, click the name of the one you want to review to head over to it. You can edit that specific notification by clicking the edit button.

Inside the edition page, you'll be able to see the available tags section. Available tags vary from template to template.

We use Django Template Language for our tags, so that means you can iterate over some tags, add conditionals and so on.

Example on Timeslots:

{% for timeslot in timeslots %}
{{ timeslot.starts_at }} to {{ timeslot.ends_at }}
{% if timeslot.room_info %} - Room Info: {{timeslot.room_info}}{% endif %}
{% if event_is_available_online %} - Livestream Link: [{{ timeslot.link }}]({{ timeslot.link }}){% endif %}
{% endfor %}

We also use Markdown for styling, so feel free to throw in some style :)

You can also turn specific notifications on and off at your will. Please note that this will turn them on or off globally!

Managing notifications at event type level

Event-related notifications may also be turned on and off at an event type level. You can do that by heading to the event type "Notifications Settings" page.
