SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional 2023 added a number of exciting enhancements that will help improve usability, performance and security. One of these SOLIDWORKS PDM 2023 enhancements was the introduction of a new feature that allows administrators to customize notification templates for a vault. This helps to display information that is more relevant to the user.
In order to do this, you must have Can update mail configuration administrative permission checked off – as shown below. You can customize notifications only for files and not for items and Bills of Material (BOMs).
You can customize templates for the following file operations:
- Changed State
- Checked In
- Checked Out
- Delayed in State
You can edit the subject and body of the template in HTML format and also use variables in the notification message.
You can also export templates. To export:
- All templates – Right-click the Notification Templates node and select Export.
- File templates – Expand Notification Templates, right-click File Notifications, and select Export.
- The template for a file operation – Expand Notification Templates > File Notifications, right-click a file operation, and select Export.
After editing the HTML template, check the preview to ensure it is what you expect to see.
If any undesired changes are made, there is a reset button that will return the template back to the default.
There is also an option to load in HTML files with the “Load from file” button. This can be useful if the PDM Administrator would like to save time by using premade templates from an external source.
