Email Update Format

Recommended Posts

I believe that the email Update mails that we receive are not driven by a template and as such I am unable to impact how they look. If that is the case can you please look at improving the current format. As you can see from the image attached it looks awful with the last update being completely unreadable. Why is the formatting of the original mail lost? 

 

Regards

@Keith there are some changes being made to how we handle the formatting when the content comes from a timeline or the details of a Request. Pending the usual QA, should be with you soon :)

@Dan Munns the behavior raised by Keith is different than the one you raised on your thread:

  • the issue raised by you: occurs when a user sends an email from a request using email action. The template used should be the one configured on the service associated to the request. For some (yet unknown) reason, the default template was set to "undefined". We are still looking into this to see how it could happen...
  • the issue raised by @Keith: occurs when a contact/customer updates a request via the portal. If the relevant application setting are enabled (portal update notifications), this will trigger an email notification to request owner and/or team on the request. This notification email is the email Keith was referring to. Currently, this email and the template used is hardcoded, cannot be changed, but there are some changes planned to have portal update notification use a customised template.

@Chaz FYI the issue raised by Keith is the outstanding change to introduce customisable templates on portal update notifications...

@Dan Munns @Keith some further clarifications: whilst the notification email can't be configured correctly, it seems we lost the basic formatting in it which is exactly what you said, Keith...  I kind of missed the idea in my first reply... So our dev team are now looking to correct the formatting (which seems to be missing break lines in the HTML format)

Great look forward to seeing an improvement in formatting here as it does make reading the reply complicated.

Although I thought the "no-reply" message was hard coded and couldn't be formatted.

@nasimg yes, they are hardcoded and can't be formatted. Meaning a Hornbill user/admin can't change the template or the formatting. But Hornbill platform does a "basic" formatting (like brake lines and such) which has been lost now. This is the formatting that we have to fix at the moment.

+1 to this. After the default template which is used when sending email from Service Manager lost its formatting I created a template as a work around.

This has been working ok up to today when the email suddenly started sending 'rubbish text' (from a user)

Quote

Task '{"Test", "urn:sys:entity:com.hornbill.core:task:TSK20180125000021"}' was added and assigned to 'Dan Munns'

The variable hasnt changed from {{RequestLastActivity.H_content}} but it now doesnt see the email as the last activity for some reason. 

Any news on sorting out the formatting on the default template yet as this has been impacting us for a week and a half with the work around now failing.

@m.vandun @Lyonel @Dan Munns so we might have found a possible fault in the way the content for last activity is populated (actually, no longer populated) ... so in some cases it will pull an "old" update as latest update and in other cases, the latest update will be empty... which fits the scenarios described so far. 

I've reported this to our dev team, they are working on this...
