Create Email Templates

With OroCommerce you can easily send numerous personalized emails using one template. For example, you can make a single template that welcomes {username}, assign it to an email campaign, and each of your subscribers will get a mail sent specifically to them.

Create a New Email Template

  1. Navigate to System > Emails > Templates.

  2. Click Create Template.

    email_template_create

  3. Define the general settings for the template.

    The following fields are mandatory and must be defined:

    • Template Name — Name used to refer to the template in the system.
    • Type — Use html or plain text.
    • Owner — Limits the list of users that can manage the template, subject to the access and permission settings.

    Optional field Entity Name is used to define an entity, variables whereof can be used in the template. If no entity name is defined, only system variables are available.

    Important

    If you want to use the template for autoresponses, the Entity Name field value should be Email.

  4. Define the email template. Click on the necessary variable to add it to the text box.

    A sample of an email template

    Note

    In the example below, the template contains a link to the website page composed with a piece of tracking code. Every time a user follows the link, visit event will be tracked for the campaign.

  5. Click Preview to check your template.

    Preview of an email template
  6. Click Save if you are satisfied with the preview.

Note

You can delete , edit , and clone email templates on the page of all templates.

View a list of templates with three options available: edit, clone, delete

Important

Keep in mind that the ability to view, edit, clone, or delete email templates depends on specific roles and permissions defined in the system configuration. For more information about available access levels and permissions, see the Understand Roles and Permissions guide.

Hint

If you want to track the user-activity related to the emails sent within the email campaign, add a piece of tracking website code to the email template.

Available Template Variables and Functions

For the security reasons, the only available variables are currently the ones listed on the Email Templates edit page in the management console. However, there are a few exceptions. These are several Twig functions enabled in email templates that can be used to obtain some specific data in email templates.

The full list of these functions is the following:

Important

Keep in mind that when editing HTML email templates, you pass them to the WYSIWYG editor. WYSIWYG automatically tries to modify the given HTML template against the HTML specifications. Therefore, the text and tags that violate the HTML specifications should be wrapped up in the HTML comment. For example, there should not be any other tags or text between the <table></table> tags except thead, tbody, tfoot, th, tr, td.
