Delivering a customizable welcome email when a user registers for an app

The  Registering App Users with the API article describes an API to register users for an application. When user registration successfully completes, a welcome email is delivered to the user’s email address. The default content and formatting of the email is shown below. 

Consider the following template:

The email text is fully customizable and it is very easy to change it:

  1. Login to Backendless console and select an app.
  2. Click the Users icon, then click the Email Templates menu.
  3. Make sure the User made registration is selected in the drop-down menu.
  4. The text of the email is shown in the editor and can be customized for the application. When a developer makes changes to the email text, keep in mind there are some substitution variables available:
    • {identity_value} - User’s identity parameter value
    • {identity_name} - User’s identity parameter name
    • {app_name} - Application name

  5. Make the changes to the text and click Save. It is also possible to preview the changes by sending a test email to yourself (or any email address). Click the Preview button and follow the on-screen instructions.
