You can edit templates of various email messages in KMP.

This can be done with the same tool which allows translation of the user interface. Learn how to work with translations first. Present article assumes that you already know how to work with them.


Notification email templates often use placeholders such as %ArticleName% or %CategoryName%. These placeholders are replaced with actual names when an email that matches this template is being sent.

Some placeholders are not utilized in the standard templates, but you can add them yourself to personalize your automated emails.
