How can change the content of report that send via Email

I have scheduled one of my reports to send mail now the content of the mail is such as follow:

The attached report was generated and emailed by vRealize Operations Manager

Report Title:    Custom Memory Workload / Utilization / CPU usage and configured

Report Description:   

Report Time:    Oct 24, 2020, 3:01:25 PM

Completion State:    Completed

Is that possible change the Content ?

AFAIK you can't change the mail output.

But if you could, how would you change it? (I'm just curious)

I glad to see someone else have the same request.

I feel like the ability to edit the content of the emails that vROPS sends should be built in!

My requirement was to create a very simple plain text email so we could send it to our on call sms via an email to sms service.

I have tried the Flings email template manager in a previous version of vROPS (v7) and it was good but once you create a template there is no where other than the tool to see that it exists...

So thanks. Is that possible manually make other templates here and assign them to specific reports?

Sorry, actually there is a bug and email_report_template.html customizaiton doesn't help.

Will be fixed in next release (8.3 or 8.4)
