Setting up different templates for different levels

You may want to send a different message via email or SMS for different incident severity levels, for example one for positive severities and one for negative severities, or a different message for more serious behaviours.

You can do this for both notifications of incidents and detentions! You can see how to set up your templates and assign them to different severities below.

Step 1 - Set up your templates

Make sure you have first set up the templates you want to use by following these instructions: Using Email/SMS/Letter Templates

When you set up the template using the Detention fields or Behaviour Incident fields options, you can pull in information using Merge Fields.

In the slide over, you can select whether to use the standard template or your custom template for email and SMS.

  • When selecting the incident option, you can see any Incident templates set up to select from. You cannot select detention templates, because detention merge fields are only available when a detention has been assigned.
  • When selecting the detention option, you can see any Detention templates set up to select from. You cannot select incident templates.
