Email Digest - Add Section

An email digest can contain standard and dynamic sections. Standard sections are sent to all recipients and are included any time an email digest is sent. Dynamic sections, such as the Training is Due section, are populated based on activity within the system. An email digest must contain at least one dynamic section, and the email digest will only be sent when a recipient has applicable content within a dynamic section. For example, a Training is Due email digest is only sent to a recipient when they have one or more training items that are due.

By default, a standard section is added to the email digest. As a best practice, a standard section should be included as the first and last sections of the email digest to provide introduction and closing text for the email digest.

To add a section to an email digest, click the Add Section button in the Sections section.
