Platform: Email Layout

The Email Layout defines the common visual design elements for all notification emails sent by your application’s workflows. You can define optional banner and footer content, and set the background color of each area. The subject and body content of each email notification will be defined by it’s Email Template in the related application.

The Layout Editor is much simpler than the Email Template Editor, as there are far fewer things that you can define. You can add content (formatted text, images, tables, links, etc.) to the Banner area and the optional Footer area. You can use the menu bar at the top of the editor to change fonts, text size and color, add tables, images, links, and more.

BannerThe Banner area appears immediately above the body content in the received emails. It’s a good place to put a graphical header or other visual elements. You can’t disable the Banner area, but if you don’t enter any content it will have no effect.
FooterThe Footer area appears immediately below the body content in the received emails. It’s a good place to put disclaimers or other legal messages. The Footer can be enabled/disabled from the right-side Email Theme Properties Panel. It must be enabled before you can enter content.
