CoreBridge allows you to easily edit email templates used for customer communication. You can edit the text used within the template, as well as add placeholders. Placeholders are used to insert specific information based on Order/Invoice, Customer, Users, and Company information into your email communications.


Each tab on the Customer Communications page is a template for outgoing emails from the system specific to that area.  


This article covers the following templates:


Overview – Customizing Email Communications
