      Description

      Sakai sends many emails to students and teachers, sometimes the inbox has many messages and it is difficult to know from the subject where that message comes from and how important is it.

      Perhaps the site and tool (or item type) should be identified in the subject.
      A homogeneous way of formatting issues would be desirable.

      Most of the emails that come from templates shows the site, but in many other messages templates are not used and you have to change the source code to get it.

      Here are some examples of subjects. Variables are surrounded by braces

       

      • New forum post (site not provided):New forum post (site not provided):
        New Message Posted to {LocalSakaiName} by {firstName} {lastName} ({userId})
      • Assignment submission (site not provided):
        Email notification for assignment submission From: "{LocalSakaiName}"
      • New message (sakai.messages) (site not provided in 20 version): {messageSubject}

        ]

      • New announcement (site provided):
        [ {siteName} - Announcement ] {announcementTitle}
      • New resource (site provided):
        [ {siteName} - New Resources ] Folder {folderName}
      • Assessment published (site provided):
        {siteName} "{assessmentName}" is available on {date}
