Customizing E-mail Notification styles

This article describes how to customize the appearance, such as the font, color, size, etc., of Email Notifications via Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). E-mail Notifications are automated email messages triggered by various events in Alloy Navigator Express to notify the people involved in the workflow.

All E-mail Notifications, including workflow notifications and SSP notifications, use HTML format. To customize their styles, go to Customization > General > CSS Styles > Outgoing HTML Notification in Settings.

NOTE: Administrative alerts do not support HTML format, therefore the Outgoing HTML Notification stylesheet do not apply to them.
