Introduction:

Javelin is a very powerful tool.  With further modifications by the client developer for use by their end users, the end results can be tailored.  One of the ways to improve the final end user's journey is to provide Custom Email templates for messages.

Question:

How can the email config file can be altered to pass the content with line breaks, font colors, and other formatting options? If HTML is the need, please recommend the proper format with examples of the template and what the end result will look like.  The overall idea is to send a well formatted and colorful mail to end user.

Environment:
Javelin in TDM 3.8 Release.
Answer:

Construct a standard HTML configured file that has the line formatting and colors.  There are several references on the Web to get this information from and is outside the scope of this TechNote. Once you have constructed the file, point to it when you invoke the Email option in Javelin.  Here is and example of what one will look like and the end result:

Please use html body and it should display with formatting:

<html>

                <body>

                                <table>

                                                <tr>

                                                                <td>

                                                                                New Line <br /> <br />

                                                                                <b><font color=Red size=14px>Bold Text</font><b> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/>

                                                                </td>

                                                </tr>

                                </table>

                </body>

</html>
