Friends management e-mail templates

In the E-mail templates application, you can find the following e-mail templates related to the Friends application:

  • Friends - Friend approval - template for e-mail or message confirming that a user approved your friendship request.
  • Friends - Friend rejection - template for e-mail or message confirming that a user rejected your friendship request.
  • Friends - Friend request - template for e-mail or message notifying you about the fact that some user requested your friendship.

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

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

Links in these e-mails need to be handled by a special page containing the Friendship management web part, which is a special web part that ensures handling of these requests.
