Fonteva has created an Events Workflow Package for jumpstarting the creation of email templates for Lightning Events. This package provides a set of generic Visualforce email templates attached to workflows that you can customize for your org.
- Event API with Framework Pages needs to be in order.
There are already some previous installed email workflow packages on your org. You may want to deactivate these packages to allow Fonteva Event Workflows to run without duplicate emails getting sent out.

[Click] the Install button to begin installing the package.
You will receive an email when the installation is complete. The Fonteva Event Workflows package will show up on the Installed Packages page. Emails will begin sending out to attendees for all events created after installing the package.
The email workflows in the Fonteva Events Workflow package will not activate for events created prior to installing the package, and attendees to these events will not receive emails from these workflows.
After installation, you will need to add the Event field to the Receipt object. This works as a trigger to start the workflows that send the emails. If you are unable to adjust page layouts, contact your System Administrator to add the Event field to the Receipt object.
The Visualforce email templates in the Fonteva Events Workflow package will automatically display the logo and colors designated in the Theme for the Business Group connected to the event. However, you still may want to adjust certain aspects of the email template that go beyond these areas.
