Manage Access for Email Templates

1. Feature Overview

This feature allows users to restrict access to certain email templates in the application. You can restrict access to specific users, roles, groups, or just yourself. Only the selected users will be able to view these templates on the Email Library. You can manage access on the Email Library or while creating/editing an email template. Once this feature is enabled, an Accessible To column will be added on the Email Library grid to display the number of users who can access that template.

Some of the use cases for this feature are –

  • Data Security – By restricting access, unauthorized personnel can be prevented from viewing or using these templates. This helps in protecting organization’s data and maintain compliance with data privacy regulations.
  • Control Over Branding and Messaging – Access restrictions can help maintain consistency in branding and messaging, preventing unauthorized changes that could harm the company’s image.
  • Enhanced User Experience – With access restrictions, a cleaner and more streamlined user interface can be presented for each user by showing them only the templates relevant to their role.
  • Compliance and Legal Requirements – Access restrictions allow to control who can send emails with certain templates, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and reducing the risk of non-compliance.
Note: Email Templates are accessible to everyone by default.
