Types of Message Templates
In this article
Throughout a Sales Order, there are two types of messages that your customer will receive:
- System-Generated Messages
- User-Generated Messages
Here we will elaborate further on the differences between these two types.
System-Generated Message Template
When you access the Message Template tab in the Settings, you will see that there are two Message Templates generated by the system, namely the New Sales Order and New Quotation templates.
These two type of message templates are used when you send the sales order/quote detail to your customers.
These two message templates cannot be deleted, but you can edit the message and customize it by adding Variables.
