Customizing Text Content of Alert

Is it possible to customize the content of the message that is sent when an alert message is generated? 

For example, what the message I receive now is - 

ACME Automation mentioned you on ACME-1

Re: My Super Important Ticket

This issue requires your attention.

@James Mclellan,

I need more info in order to direct you properly.

You can edit the templates for customer notifications here - Project > Project Settings > Customer Notifications

You can use the Automation feature to create unique notifications to individuals, customers, groups.

Thanks @Jack Brickey!

I'm looking to change the alert, not the Customer Notification. In my specific use case, when an urgent Service Desk ticket is received, I'd like to raise an alert so that supervisors are aware of the problem.

The feedback I've gotten is that the alert text is not specific enough for them to understand what the call to action is. If I could customize the text of the alert, that might help.

@James Mclellan,

sorry my brain is working on other issues here but what do you mean by "alert" drawing a blank at the moment. Can you provide more info on where this alert is configured?

Maybe it is an Automation rule you have? If so simply edit the automation rule or Create an automation rule.

@Jack Brickey, no problem.

In this project's Automation rule, under the THEN block is an 'Alert user' action, which provides a list of users to alert when the IF condition is met (in this case, creation of a high priority issue).

The 'Alert user' action takes, as arguments, a list of specific users to alert that the highe priority issue is received.

What I would like to do is be able to customize the text of the message these users receive, so that it's easier for the users to understand.

I'd like to see this one answered as well....  have same situation,  the email someone recieves when the automation is triggered to send an ID and "alert"  isn't clear.    I'd like to customer the email subject and content to say something like Respond required or Ticket Assigned to your Group and needs action.    

I am in the same boat. Users started sending me emails replying "You have my attention!" What else do you expect when they get an email which only says 'This issue requires your attention'. 

How do I customize this message? Anyone?
