Issue:

You are creating a template that includes something like:

IF JOB ABORTS PLEASE EMAIL MY.NAME@MYCOMPANY.COM

In the upper right hand corner of the screen you get a message: ATTRIBUTE NOT ALLOWED 

Environment:

CA APCDOC product, all releases.

Cause:

The '@' character in APCDOC is a Template Attribute Character that defines a field as: Required Character Input with Cap. The field being defined is a required input field and all characters entered in the field will be converted to upper case. 

Resolution:

Remove the '@'.

You may have a message such as: PLEASE EMAIL MY.NAME AT MYCOMPANY.COM or similar.
