Customisation of 'Invitation Email' Default Text?

[ Edited ]

The ability to create an Outlook Calendar/iCal meeting invitation when scheduling an Act! Activity is a useful feature ("Send invitation email").

 

It would be extremely useful however, if it were possible to customise the 'template' text in the meeting invitation.

 

Currently, the template reads: "Just a reminder concerning our upcoming meeting:"

 

...followed by the characteristics of the Activity, of course.

 

I wonder whether this text is contained within in a config file somewhere, such that it may be edited? If it is, I cant find it.

 

Does anyone have experience of customising this default text?

Re: Customisation of 'Invitation Email' Default Text?

It's an embedded string in act.outlook.integration.dll.  It could probably be modified but it would take some work to give your customer some flexibility and I'm pretty sure that sort of change would violate the EULA.  People have been asking for it for a long time though so Swiftpage should probably support a config file, etc.

Thank you Stan. That's very useful.

 

I've found that I can decompile the .DLL, edit the text string and recompile. This provides a solution of sorts, but of course it's a long way from a user-friendly approach (and as you say, it's outside the EULA).
