In case of AEM 6.4 the default path for template used is /libs/settings/workflow/notification/email/tasks/created/en.txt [1].

You can make necessary modifications in the templates being used for sending emails, check below link for details around it if this supports your use case.

Thanks Sumeet, already looked into it but seems timeline comments persists into <Asset path>/jcr:content/comments as nodes and not pushed to the task node at /var/taskmanagement/tasks.

Hi Nitin,

Below are few pointers regarding the functionality:

  • creates the task at [2]
  • reads the task/event and triggers the mail using the template [1]
  • The legacy root for the email templates was /etc/workflow/
  • The email templates are loaded at the bundle load/start, so any changes in the template will only be picked and used post restart of bundle [3]
  • As the comments in this case are saved under <Asset path>/jcr:content/comments as nodes and not pushed to the task node at [2] for each comment. I do not see an option to add them to the mail template
