I'm looking to supply links and picture content to email Notification delivery formats.
Ideally via Process Explorer although there are no formatting tools to do so ?
Any ideas appreciated.
what kind of the pictures and links do you need to insert please? In the Process Explorer, we could just use Hyperlink and attached files to insert the links and picture files. However, it cannot let you see the pictures in the email text box. If this could satisfy your goal, please see the steps following:
1. After selecting one notification, you could choose "Message" menu in the middle window.
2. use the first button of the "Delivery Formats" part to create a new Delivery Format
3. you could see there is the "Acknowledge" option in the right window. In this option, you could right click "HyperLink" to add a link of the webpage
4. To add the file into the attachment of the email, you could use the "Add" button of the right window.
5. After the preparation above, you could drag everything in the right window into the blank of the bottom of the middle window, which is the text body of your email format.
If you still cannot catch that please email me firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will explain this in detail.
I was hoping to embed pictures into the email text (along with hyperlinks) and therefore use Process Explorer to create web page like email formats. But as you said I cannot see the pictures in the email text. It looks like I'm going to have to build an html/xml delivery channel and send parameters to a seperate HTML email editor - correct ?
One of the new features of PI Notifications 2012 is the ability to add pictures to Notification Delivery Formats. Here are the steps:
1) Create a new Delivery Format in the 'Messages' tab of the Notifications AFExplorer plugin
2) Under the 'Content' pane on the right-hand-side, select Add -> File and select the picture you want to add
3) There should be a new piece of content in the pane under the heading 'File' - just drag this into the body of the Delivery Format you are creating. You will want to use the 'Inline Image' option in order to embed the image in the email text. The Delivery Format preview won't show the actual picture, but it should show up under the preview tab.
