Friends management email templates

In the Email templates application, you can find the following email templates related to the Friends application:

  • Friends - Friend approval - template for an email or message confirming that a user approved your friendship request.
  • Friends - Friend rejection - template for an email or message confirming that a user rejected your friendship request.
  • Friends - Friend request - template for an email or message informing you that another user requested your friendship.

If you choose to Edit () a template, you will see two large text fields:

  • HTML version - text of the template used for emails.
  • Plain text version - text of the template used for the Messages application messages.

Links in these emails need to be handled by a special page containing the Friendship management web part. This is a special web part that ensures handling of these requests.
