WHMCS allows you to modify and even create your own custom e-mail templates. For instance, if your client submits and/or replies to a Support Ticket the WHMCS Ticket System will receive their submission and modify the status accordingly. You can, however, create an email notification to alert you when a client takes action on a Support Ticket. In this guide you can learn how to create a ticket email notification using WHMCS.
Create a Notification Email Template
- Log into the WHMCS Administrative Dashboard.
- Hover over the Setup tab, then click on Email Templates from the list of menu items.
- Select the Type (of Email Template) you would like to create. For this example, Notification is selected.
- Type a name of the template into the Unique Name: field. For this example, New Technical Support Ticket is entered.
- Click the Create button.
- Enter the details of your notification into the form and then click the Save Changes button.
