Email templates

Click 'Settings' > 'System Templates' > 'Email Templates'

  • Endpoint Manager sends system emails to admins and users. For example, during account activation, device enrollment, and more.
     
  • The 'Email Templates' interface shows a list of those system emails and lets you configure their content.
     
  • Due to their importance, you cannot delete these templates or create new templates. You can, however, modify the contents of a template. The preset email templates are:
     
    • Activate account - Sent only to new admins to activate their account. These mails are not sent to people with the 'User' role (your end-users/device owners). Users receive a different enrollment mail which you can disable during the CSV user import process if required.
       
    • Password reset - Sent to any user that requests a new password.
       
    • Device enrollment - Sent to end-users. It contains instructions on how to add their device to Endpoint Manager.
       
    • Email notification - Sent on the occurrence of certain events. You can configure the recipients of these mails, and the events that generate them.
       
    • Device enrollment via Active Directory - Sent to users imported from Active Directory when you enroll their devices. You can enable or disable this mail in 'Settings' > 'Portal Set-Up' > 'Active Directory' > click the name of an LDAP domain > 'Enroll' > 'Edit'.
       
    • Your Endpoint Manager account password has been reset by your administrator - Sent to users whose password was changed by an admin.

  • Edit the subject line and/or email content as required

    • You can remove variables by simply deleting the %variable% from the body text.
       
    • Each email template has a specific selection of user and device variables.
       
  • Click 'Save'. Your changes will take effect immediately.

Notification Emails

Click 'Settings' > 'System Templates' > 'Email Notifications'

  • Endpoint Manager sends alert emails to admins and users when certain events happen.
