Change Infringement Notice Email

Kurt Lingohr -

When a new traffic infringement notices is created, an email is generated and sent to the vehicle custodians. In v2.10 of PoolCar and beyond, you can now customize the wording of this email message by editing the template. The template can be edited from the Sysadmin page ("Email Template - Infringement").

Default Template

By default your template will be as per below, containing all the available fields.

Note: the text inside the [square brackets] is important. These are called placeholders. When a new user is created, and the booking receipt email generated, these placeholder fields are substituted with the actual details. It works on a search/replace basis, so if you change the [fields] then the search/replace function will not work.

You can add extra wording, or change the wording that is already there. You can even bold, underline, change colors, etc.


Changing the Timeframe by which the Recipient Should Respond

In the default template below, see the placeholder "[now+d7]" ? 

This will show the current date plus 7 days (that's the d7 bit). If you wish to change this to 3 days, change this placeholder to be [now+d3]


Here is the default template. In case you make a mess whilst editing your template, you can copy/paste this default template below.

PasteAsText.gifTip: in the editor, don't just paste the text into the editor box. Instead use the 'Paste as Text' icon to avoid funky formatting issues.
