As of version 5.0, Aeon now has the ability for sites specific LocalInfo entries that would populate email and print templates. 
 
This is done by creating additional entries within the LocalInfo table in the Customization Manager.  By naming the 'Type' field for a new row the same as the corresponding Site in which to replace the default LocalInfo, transaction Email Templates and Printing within Client will now substitute the default information with the newly implemented row for all transactions within the specified site.
 
This includes:
  • All default and custom email templates of the Transaction Category.
  • Printing Callslips for one or more transactions.
  • Printing one or more transactions.
  • Printing Digitization Requests.
  • Printing Invoices, including billing information.
Don't delete the Type "Default" Row within the LocalInfo Table. This will act as a fallback during the circumstances where the LocalInfo row has not been specified for a particular site. Deleting the Default field may result in system instability proving LocalInfo for email templates and printing.
 
When someone logs in using a different DBC other than the default, the email template will automatically populate with the information from the Localinfo row. See the example below.
