Work item Email notification template syntax

By using templates, you can customize the content of Email messages that are sent to users to notify them of changes to work items.

Notification templates

Within each project area, you can customize notification messages that are sent for the following events:
  • A user is added as an approver to a work item.
  • A user has been mentioned with the Message at me (@user-name) convention.
  • A work item has been modified.
  • Aggregate changes that occur to the same work item in a single notification, excluding mentions with the Message at me convention and approvals. Each aggregated change notification includes only modifications that occur in the time interval that is configured for email notification. For example, if email notification is configured to run every 10 minutes, changes that occur during this time interval are aggregated.

Templates must be written in the velocity template language. For details about the velocity language, see
