Customising Dynamics GP Workflow Emails: Extending Styles to Other Elements

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn this series of posts, I am showing how the email notifications sent by Microsoft Dynamics GP Workflow can be formatted using HTML text formatting tags. In this post, I’m going to show how we can appyl formats to mutliple elements within the email by building on the embedded stylesheets I covered in the last post.

In Message Setup (Administration area page >> Setup >> Company >> Workflow >> E-mail Message Setup), I added a new span class of title to the stylesheet at the top of the message body (this time setting the font-weight to 900, which is a bold font), and then wrapped all of the field headers in span tags with a class of title:

A test of the email showed that the style worked and showed the field headings were now bold:

    Hi Ian,

    I’m setting up Customer Statement email. Email message body always comes as one paragraph on the email no matter whatever space/line feed on the Message setup. Can i use any formatting similar to the above. Please advise.

      Hi Jothikrishnan,

      You could try wrapping each paragraph in <p> </p> tags or put <br /> at the end of each section.
