An event has occurred in a folder that you (user) were set to receive notifications from. The event details are listed below.

As of current version, you can change the email subject and some body text:
 
Go to folder 
 
FileVista\App_GlobalResources\OriginalFiles\Languages
 
and copy FileVista-en.xml file (or FileVista-fr.xml for French) and then go to folder
 
FileVista\App_GlobalResources\FileVista\Languages
 
and paste the file here.
 
Now you can override this language file by editing xml with a text editor like notepad.
FileVista will detect this new language file automatically.
 
 
The lines you are interested are as follows:
   
<String key="666">{0} Event Notification - {1}</String>
<String key="667">An event has occured in a folder that you ({0}) were set to receive notifications from. The event details are listed below.</String>

Hi,

We want to alter the email notifications too, but it seems the XML language files have changed since this thread in 2017... 

It now refers to entries, rather than strings and we can't see the strings listed above (or anything which looks like the email notification text for that matter).

Please advise how we can adjust the email subject, body, etc.

Thanks
