-====== Notification Emails ====== 
-Sentori'​s Notification Email feature can trigger a simple text email to be sent when a contact performs an action, such as clicking a specific link or unsubscribing. 
-Sentori will mail merge the contact'​s details and information about the source of the notification (the email and the link from which they clicked). This means that a single notification email can be used in one or many contexts. 
-===== Creating a Notification Email ===== 
-Notification emails are created from the cog menu; you will find the option in the integration section of the menu. 
-When you take the '​create notification option'​ you will first be asked at name the email - this name will be used when you add the notification to a hyperlink. You can optionally add documentation in the description text box. 
-The next stage is to specify the email. Note that the subject line and the body of the email can include mergefields. ​ These can be either the special notification mergefields as shown in the list below or the [[contact-mergefilds|contact mergefields]] that you can use in emails.

Once the merge field is replaced this might become “contact@domain.com has Clicked at 09:45 June Newsletter Homepage homepage@mbusiness.com”|
