Set up email notifications

Creatio sends automatic emails with various notifications regarding cases. Users receive emails when their cases are registered, processed, resolved, canceled, or closed.

The general setup procedure is as follows:

  1. Set up contact case notification rules. Read more >>>

  2. Set up email notification templates. Read more >>>

  3. Set up case resolution notifications. Read more >>>

If the case was registered from an email, all recipients of the original email receive notifications. By default the From field contains the support email that received customer’s email. If the case was registered from another channel (self-service, call, etc.), the From field contains email of the support service specified in the “Customer service Email” (“SupportServiceEmail” code) system setting. To send notifications only to the case contact, even if they did not send the original email, enable the “Send automatic notifications only to contact” system setting (“AutoNotifyOnlyContact” code).

Set up the mechanism that sends email notifications in the “Send email to contact on case status change” business process.

Set up contact case notification rules

The setup procedure is as follows:

  1. Open the System Designer by clicking the button.

  2. Go to the System setup block → open Lookups section.

  3. Open the Case notification rule lookup content (Fig. 1).

  4. Click New and set the notification parameters:


    Parameter value

    Case category

    Select case category to apply the rule.

    Case status

    Select case status to apply the rule.

    Email message template

    Select the template to send as a notification according to the rule.

    Usage rule

    Whether to send the notification immediately or after a delay. To configure the sending delay of the rule, specify the “Send after a delay” usage rule and fill out the Sending delay, minutes column.

    Sending delay, minutes

    Specify sending delay of the notification. For example, the feedback requests can be sent after the specified time after resolving a case. This will allow the client to use the provided solution and evaluate its effectiveness.

    Quote original email

    Select the checkbox to include the text of the original case email in the notification.

  5. Save the changes by clicking the  button.

Set up the email notification templates

The email template used in each notification depends on the case status and category. For example, the “Case closure notification” template is used to notify the user that the case has been closed.

Use the Message templates lookup to manage the notification templates.

To set up an email template:

  1. Open the System Designer by clicking the button.

  2. Go to the System setup block → open the Lookups section.

  3. Open the Message templates lookup.

  4. Select a template and click Edit. This opens the Content Designer window.

  5. Edit the text of the email.

  6. Add macros to the template, if needed. For example, the #Number# macro that specifies the incident number in the message. To do this, click the btn_chapter_content_designer_macros.png button and select the Standard macros action. If the list of preconfigured macros does not contain the required macro, use the Custom macro action and set up the required macro.

Set up case resolution notification

When a case is set to the “Resolved” status, the user receives an email that asks to evaluate the processing quality. If no evaluation is received, an additional evaluation request is be sent. You can manage the response waiting time before sending additional evaluation request using the “Number of waiting days to reevaluate resolved case” (“FirstReevaluationWaitingDays” code) system setting.

To ensure Creatio sends quality evaluation emails correctly, set up the link to Creatio website that is required for gathering user feedback. Fill out the Default value field of the “Website URL” (“SiteUrl” code) system setting with the full website URL required to access Creatio, for example
