A new Workflow Generic Email Template is available in FileCloud Server version 18.2.

FileCloud provides you with various messages to send to a user when an action occurs. These messages can be customized, which means you are overriding the default messages that are provided with your FileCloud site after installation (FileCloud Server) or site setup (FileCloud Online).

 Watch a video to learn about Customizing Email Templates.
