How to set up Default Email Templates in SFM

Available from version v2.0.11.152 onwards.

SFM has the ability to save default email templates, complete with text and signature, for every type of document available in the system. The user can either use the text in the default template provided, or they can write or amend it as necessary.  

This feature is compatible when SFM is setup as SBS Mail or Microsoft Outlook.
This can be set from Current Year > Utilities > Company Maitnenance > Additional Details.

Users can view their saved default templates by going to Administration > Mail Templates. The saved templates will be listed in the top box.
