SAP CPQ – Customize your Notification Emails
In this article, we’ll look at some practical ways you can add/modify the standard templates using online editors for sending email notifications to the customers; based on workflow actions.
Selecting a Template
When you select “Notifications” from the left navigation bar, you will see a drop down of the various email types we support. A great place to start is your Order Confirmation, but all of your notification emails are important in their own right and should have a consistent look and feel.
Once you select an notification, you have the opportunity to select a various template. All of SAP CPQ’s email templates are responsive so whichever you choose will look great on a desktop or on mobile.
Customizing your Template — Working from the top down.
Go to SAP CPQ Setup > Workflow/Approval > Notifications
Notifications are triggered by workflow events, like a new order being placed, or an order being failed. They are sent to you, your staff, or your customers, depending on the event as well as your order notification settings.
Each one of these notification templates can be customized to include custom HTML and CSS, which means there’s a lot of room to showcase your brand.
There are currently 10 Standard Email templates are available (2B) and also you can add new notifcation templates using (2A)

HTML Online Editors

Make sure that you test!
you’ll have to test each email notification newly added to ensure the output looks right from a customer’s perspective. As developers, we should always be thinking about how the end will look and feel for the customers.
