  3. Double-click a notification template to open it for editing.
  4. Click the HTML or Source tiles in the ribbon to view and edit the notification template in the WYSIWYG or HTML editor respectively.

    • Change the subject line
      Click the Title tile.
      On the Edit Title dialog box, change the subject line of the notification and click OK.

      In the notification templates, variables are appended with an attribute name and enclosed in percentage signs, to display that attribute’s value in a notification.
