Email Templates - Select font for outgoing emails

Started by Tom Skailes in Feature Requests | Idea

I like the email feature for invoices etc but the email text format they get sent out in is pretty ugly and looks very old-fashioned - it would be great to be able to select a default font for emails in the email settings, so we could select something more recipient-friendly such as arial or calibri. Or, even better, permit variable text formatting in the email template so things like email footers etc can look their best.

Appreciate wanting an update, everyone(Aug 21). Since our last engagement, while the team did make some changes to email templates in 2018, fonts weren't something the team were able to encompass as part of this work.

While your idea here is on the team's radar, I want to be upfront that there's no immediate work planned for expanding the font selection on outgoing emails from Xero. We know Xero's mail system needs some work and do have visions for improving on this, but resources are devoted elsewhere atm.

In the meantime, as some have already. Understanding exact types of fonts and your specific needs in using these would be of great help to the teams insight on this.
