Default canned email templates
System default emails — found under the Edit Templates dropdown — can’t be deleted. However, you may edit them just like any other email template.
Dubsado automatically uses the following templates in certain situations and can’t be swapped out for a different canned email:
Send Invoice (only for recurring invoices; you can pick a different email when sending a one-time invoice)
Autopay Enrollment Confirmed
Create a canned email template
Go to Templates >> Canned Emails.
Click New Canned Response.
Enter a title for your canned email template. This is not visible to the client.
Enter a subject line.
Write the body of the email.
Click Save & Close.
Formatting canned emails
Add a Dubsado form
Dubsado forms, invoices, and schedulers get sent in an email using smart fields. See link to a Dubsado form for detailed information.
Add smart fields
Use smart fields to autofill details about a project or client by clicking on Smart Field in the toolbar. See personalize your emails with smart fields for detailed information.
Change text format
Click the A icon in the toolbar to access different style options, such as bold, italics, underline, font color, alignment, and more.
Add an external link
Click the A icon in the toolbar, followed by the link icon. See add an external link for more information.
Insert an image
Click the A icon in the toolbar, followed by the image icon.
Add an attachment
Files can’t be added to email templates as an attachment — files can only be attached to emails that you send manually while in the client’s project. Add the file as an external link instead.

Send an email template to your client
See send a canned email to a client for more information.
Does editing an email template edit the email in a workflow as well?
No. Adding an email template to the workflow creates a copy of the template. Editing templates won’t affect email templates already added to a workflow.
How do I add an email signature?
Go to Templates >> Canned Emails >> Signature.
