Custom subject headings in email notifications


Is it possible to change the subject headings in email notifications sent out by confluence?

We're using the Cloud version.

We're had a few users complain that it looks a bit "spammy" in it's current format.

e.g.. "[Confluence] Confluence changes in the last 24 hours".

Ideally we'd like to replace the word "confluence" with something more bespoke.

If there is a way to also change the content in the body of the email as well even better!

Many Thanks,

Hi Darren, 

Unfortunately it's not possible as per our Restricted Functions (Configuring File system messages). Sorry about that. :/


Ah ok. Fair enough. Thanks for taking the time to respond Elisa. Kind Regards, Darren

Is it possible on the server version? I'd like to change the email subject too.
