Email Headers and Footers

Appian email messages use standard header and footer HTML files that you can update to suit your applications. The header and footer files are stored as Appian documents.

The file encoding used is UTF-8. Any HTML updates to these files must be encoded in UTF-8, if Unicode is used for the file encoding.

  1. Navigate to the Objects view in Appian Designer.
  2. Search for and open the E-mail Templates document folder.
  3. Select the checkbox next to the emailHeader.html or emailFooter.html document object.
  4. Click the New Version option in the More menu. The Upload New Version dialog is displayed.
  5. Select the new file you want to use.

The header and footer files are created by the load.bat (.sh) script. Running this script will overwrite any changes you've made to these files.
