Birthday/Anniversary notifications with an image through Intelligent Services

Hi All,

I have gone through the threads on the community portal where it has been discussed that it is currently not possible to send out birthday and anniversary notifications with an image or do any customisation to the look and feel of the email, using the usual EC Alerts and Notifications way.

I'm posting this question to ask if anyone has tried using Intelligent Services to achieve this. If so, were you successful? If you were, please could you share the steps taken? It would be greatly helpful for me. I am looking for a way to automatically send out a fancy email on birthday and anniversary to employees from managers.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Saumya

Hi saumyan

Birthday and Anniversary alerts go by Alert Message (supported by HTML Tag). so possible you can try converting your message into HTML format and try to create a fancy email.

e.g I have used the below html tag to present the image in the email

<img alt="Qries" src="https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/birthday-balloons-vector-background-design-260nw-2003677130.jpg" width=150" height="70">

let me know in case you need any help.

Thanks

Sachin

Thank you for your response, Sachin.

I thought EC alerts do not support images? See this KBA: 2663385 - Can we use Rich Text/HTML/Text Color in alert messages ? (sap.com) that says that you cannot use HTML to add images to Alert Messages. Images are not supported in Alert Messages.

Can you please share in detail, what you have done to get this image in your notification? If you could share some screenshots of your business rule, notification, the section where you have inserted this link etc. that would be helpful. If it has worked for you, I would like to try and replicate it.

Hi Saumya

Please add the below link into your alert message

<img src="https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/birthday-balloons-vector-background-design-260nw-2003677130.jpg" width=150" height="70"" >

where src - you can replaced with you image.

Please let me know in case you need any support.

Thanks
