Customize Subscription email

  • 1.  Customize Subscription email

    I am trying to customize the subject line and body for a subscription email in a similar manner as a notification email.  

    Is there a way to add table data to the subject line and body of a subscription email?

    No there is not.  The reason is that the report can include many records, so how would it know which values to use?

    Hi Paul,

    Mark would be correct, there isn't a way in subscriptions to pull in table data or tags like you can in notifications. This is due to the fact that subscriptions pull reports and as he mentioned could then have anywhere from 1 to 1,000s of records that they reference. Is there something specific you were trying to achieve with your subscription title?

    Evan,

    Yes, in this instance I am simply trying to add the current date to the subject line.  But there are other instances where I want to add the customer's name to the email subject line.
