When viewing a user group, you can send an e-mail with login credentials to a particular user or all of the users belonging to the group. The e-mail template can be customized, and we recommend that you do so prior to sending users their login credentials.

Customize the E-Mail Template

  1. On the navigation bar, click  Setup    E-Mail Setup.
  2. In the  E-Mail Template  drop-down list, click the template you want.
  3. Next to  Subject, type the subject of your email.
  4. Customize the Message Body of the e-mail to suit your school's preferences.

    Note: In the Available Macros box, located to the right of the Message B ody, you'll find preset variables in brackets that you can copy and paste into the body of your e-mail template. The macros are automatically filled with your school's PlusPortals information when the e-mail is sent. For example, the [school.namemacro is automatically substituted with your school's name. To simplify the customization process, we recommend you don't make any changes to the macros found in the default e-mail template.

  5. Click  Save.
