New! Notify Allows For Customized Email Templates

Customize Your Notify Automatic Email Templates

Aargh’s Notify!!! software automatically sends personalized “Created, Updated, and Closed” emails to residents based on the progress of their service ticket.

Aargh clients using Notify!!! get set up to use the default templates for each of the emails (see below). They work well right “out of the box.”

Aargh Notify clients can now also customize the email templates for “Created, Updated, and Closed” to include branding, corporate messaging, external links and more.

For more information on Notify!!! and watch a quick video on how it works, see our product page: Notify!!! Automatic Resident Service Emails

A Property Management Firm with 20 active people managing resident service can expect an average of 5,000 additional emails a month being sent to residents, without any additional effort by the team.

New Notify!!! Feature

Custom Email Templates

Each of the “New, Updated, and Closed” emails are HTML templates that are integrated with Rent Manager Resident Service Issue data.

The default templates work great, but now you can customize the whole email template to include your own messaging and links to things like your blog or surveys.

How Do I Customize My Email Templates?

When we get your NOTIFY!!! account set up, we will use three default email templates. One for New: “N_Add.html”. One for Updated: “N_Edit.html”. And, one for Closed: “N_Close.html.”

Note these files have the extension “.html”  

If you double-click on the file, you’ll open it in a browser, and you’ll see what the file looks like when it gets sent.

Right-click on these links and select “save as” to download these files:

When finished editing, send the files to Info@aarghsoftware.com along with your Rent Manager corporate ID.
You can have Aargh Software modify the files as well, if you just want to tell us what you want … a small set up fee applies: aarghsoftware.com/product/notify-email-template-customization/ 

The .html file is just a simple text file that can be edited on your P.C. or Mac. 

Note that some of the text have FIELD CODES in them that reference data from a Rent Manager service issue. For example, {{DescriptionHTML}} is the field code for the Description field on the service issue screen in Rent Manager. When your resident receives this email, it will be replaced with the appropriate data.

Since this is an HTML file, you can design it however you wish.
