I'm having a problem with Case Assignment Template. I'm only getting the standard system generated email notification when a case is assigned to me, despite me having an email template specified in Support Settings for Case Assigned Template.

A case has been assigned to you, the default owner. Click the link below to view the record in salesforce.com

Only if I create an assignment rule and specify the template in the assignment rule, will it use the template. Salesforce is simply ignoring the Case Assigned Template I have specified in Support Settings.

What other settings should I check/verify to enable the Case Assigned Template when the default case assignment occurs?

If you specify Email template in each assignment rule then Salesforce will consider those email templates.

Support Settings Email template:

Use this template to notify contacts that a case has been created or updated for them.

And, if Salesforce doesn't find any templates then it sends the default email template what you have mentioned in the question.

  • Right, I understand that. However, it doesn't consider the template int eh Support Settings at all, regardless of what I specify in the Assignment Rule. – Swisher Sweet Apr 14 '18 at 17:17
  • Support settings email template is to notify contacts and not for the case owner – Santanu Boral Apr 14 '18 at 17:21
  • According to the help text, Use this template to notify your users a case has been assigned to them.. Are you suggesting this help text is wrong? – Swisher Sweet Apr 15 '18 at 13:23
  • In my org, I didn't setup this case assigned template. I have used templates defined in assignment rule or workflow rules – Santanu Boral Apr 15 '18 at 14:29
