WF: Email Notifications do not Display Rich Text Format Font Color when Sending Emails Using the Notify Button After Applying PT 8.59.17 Patch (Doc ID 2963403.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.59 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After migrating from PeopleTools (PT) 8.59.15 to 8.59.17, when an email notification is sent with Rich Text Format and with message formatting using colored font, it doesn't reflect the same color in the email text. Other formatting like the underline, boldface, and italics are working fine both in 8.59.17 and 8.59.15.

PeopleTools: 8.59.17
Application : CS 9.2 PUM Image 23

2. Click Notify button.
3. Check 'Rich Text' checkbox.

5. Click OK.
