      It works only for text format. Template parameter won't accept for html format.

      Hi Bhavani,

      Thanks for sharing.

      I have not tried the mail format to see how it works, it does give a better view of what is happening.

      I guess it will be a little time consuming to create specific rules and alerts for different types of messages.

      Figafs solution is to set up a simple Xpath filter on the alert and then based on the result send a message to the correct person.
