Hello @adivj95  - 


You may do so (as drafted below), but it might have certain implications which you have to additionally handle/consider : 

  • With the latest upgrades/versioning, you might have to revisit the implementation done to handle the above use-case.
  • With the customization required to modify the title of the inbox notification for the Workflow participant step, remember all notification to the inbox shall get affected unless explicitly handled.

If you are looking for a sample script/approach to handle this use-case : 

  • You can create a client-side JavaScript file, for example, customTitle.js, and place it in your AEM project's client-side code folder. 


// Wait for the DOM to be ready
document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() {
  // Write the code to get the page, as you have not mentioned which page path you want to update.
  var pagePath = <script>;
  // Update the document title with the page path
  document.title = "Page Path: " + pagePath;


  • Include it on the inbox.html page (Make sure you overlay it at /apps, before updating). You can do this by adding the following line inside the <head> section of the inbox.html file:


<script src="/path/to/your/customTitle.js"></script>

Hello @adivj95 


It might be cleaner if you use Description section to add payload Information. The title will help easily identify type of task, while description will provide path to asset
