I sometimes want to make my simple SPD workflows email notifications like like the SPAlert emails.

[Show SPAlert email]

Now I made this the past and I’ve made it again. So this time I have to share this to you so I wont lose this template again :-D.

  1. Copy the template available in here.
  2. Update the following placeholders in the template.
    • [SITEURL] e.g. http://www.contoso.com without the trailing backslash ‘/’ at the end
    • [SITENAME] e.g. Contoso
    • [LIBRARYNAME] e.g. Reports
    • [FIELDNAME1] e.g. Category
    • [FIELDNAME2] e.g. Department
    • [MoreFields] e.g. MoreFields
  3. Minify your code. Minifying just means removing all line breaks and spaces. It’s very easy to do..
  4. Follow my blog article SharePoint 2010 Designer HTML Emails.

    Hi,I tried this 3 times. When I click OK in the Edit HTML dialogue box, the Recently Modified pooitrn of the Quick Launch. However, it only works while the page is still in the Edit mode. When I click Save and Close in the ribbon, the Recently Modified shows up again.Is there a particular order in saving or additional commands that will make this permanent?Will be very grateful for your reply. Thanks.
