You can use Custom Fields to personalise Email Reminders to the individual User receiving it. If you're new to creating Email Reminders, you may wish to read Create an Email Reminder first.
The parts of the message that will be the same for all are typed in and then the parts of the message to be personalised to the user are inserted using the Custom Fields.
On Step 1 of the Email Reminder wizard, click Show Message Fields + on the right-hand side of the message editor to open the Custom Field groups.
Custom Fields are grouped into:
- Activity - these relate to the activity the Email Reminder is being created for.
- Links - clickable links - see the Create Button Links section below.
- Profile - these relate to the User who receiving the email.
- Website - these relate to your LMS.
Click the + next to one of the groups to expand it.
Start typing your email then click a Custom Field to add it to the body of the message where it needs to appear.
Create Button Links
All of the Custom Fields in the Links group can be added as buttons, as in the below example:
When you click one of the Custom Fields in the Links group, a popup will open where you can customise the button.
Choose to display the link either as a Button Link (as in the above example) or as a Text Link.
Add the display text and hover text.
If using a Button Link, choose its colour - the options will be the primary and secondary colours of your LMS site theme. See Create a Site Theme to learn how Super Administrators can change these colours.
Click Save to add the button to the message.
