Configure notifications that are sent by Onvio

Onvio Center enables you to configure notifications that are sent to clients or staff when certain events occur. These notifications include email messages, mobile push notifications, and notifications within Onvio Center itself.

To configure notifications, click Setup and choose Notifications under the Onvio Settings column.

Styling tab

In the Styling tab, you can configure global attributes that are shared by all notification email messages by default, such as the sender name, sender email address, and the message header and footer.

You can choose to use a different sender name and/or sender email for any email notification. Select the notification on the Wording tab and turn off global addresses for that notification.

Wording tab

In the Wording tab, you can configure the notifications that are triggered by various events in Onvio Center.

  1. Select an event from the Account, Documents, or User Activation lists on the left.
  2. Compose the text you want sent for each type of notification that is related to the selected event.
  3. Use variables to insert information such as recipient names, folder names, and file names. See the tables below.
  4. Test each message by clicking Send Test.
  5. Click Save.

Note: Link buttons may not function properly when accessed through the web interface of some email services. If users have trouble registering accounts or resetting passwords, the [REGISTRATION LINK] or [PASSWORD RESET LINK] variable may yield better results.

The appropriate link variables are built into the default templates, but if you are creating or editing a customer template, you may wish to add the appropriate link variable manually.
