Email modules and their fields

When you configure email modules, Workfront Fusion displays the fields listed below. Along with these, additional email fields might display, depending on factors such as your access level in the app or service. A bolded title in a module indicates a required field.

Some of the email fields might already contain data because you used them in another module in the scenario. See the email help documentation if you need information about them.

If you see the map button above a field or function, you can use it to set variables and functions for that field. For more information, see Map information from one module to another in Adobe Workfront Fusion.
