Add explanatory footer to mails sent by the tool
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Emails sent by WatchTranslations lack any information about why was it sent, by which tool and how can one alter email sending preferences. Including those information is a best practice, given it prevents having that email marked as spam.

Proposed solution

Add at least the following information to the email sent:

  • Link to tool which sent it
  • Say "to change your sending preferences, go to tool"

Those information can be a footer, but you are free to put it elsewhere if you think it's better.

Student is expected to upload a patch against labs/tools/watch-translations repository at Wikimedia Gerrit. Student should claim Phabricator task while claiming task at the GCI site.
