I am setting up change approvals in SP17 and have the new E-Mail templates available to me, but cannot make the change approval notification template fire off a mail, do I have to use a Database rule to do this? If so how, as I cannot seem to make this link. I have approval groups set up and can make the thread work to get back into the system from this link, but just cannot get the mail out to my approvers. Help appreciated. Thanks
I think, but hopefully someone that is more sure can confirm or correct me, that the approvals email uses the url of the Service Pages. This is because approvals will sometimes (or maybe often) involve persons (from the business) that do not have the full accounts.
So if you have service pages up and running you need to fill in the System Panel, General Settings - application tab.
