Templates allow agents to respond to inbound email messages by using templates, messages that have already been created and approved for specific situations. Your initial templates can be created at any time during the planning process and can be modified or new ones added any time after implementation.
NOTE: Usually your database contains the same repository data as the SRF file. However, if you create templates on a local database, such as on a mobile Web client, they will be available in the picklist only when you access the local database.
The templates that appear to an agent depend on the agent's Outbound Communications user preference settings and how the templates are filtered. For more information about setting user preferences, see Applications Administration Guide. Templates are filtered in the following ways:
A catalog must be defined as a response group input argument. It contains categories that you can associate with templates and solutions. During the planning process, you gathered and categorized templates and solutions.
Templates and solutions that contain answers to similar questions are associated with a single category. When agents use categories, they do not have to look through all templates and solutions to find the information that they want to send to a customer. They can use Search Center to look through the templates and solutions that are grouped in the appropriate categories. To use Search Center for this purpose, the categories have to be indexed. For information, see Siebel Search Administration Guide.
