We have several terminal or positions that we send pages from in our department. With the software we currently use we have the signature added to the beginning of the message showing where the page is coming from, (Dispatch, CID, etc) I am testing Pagegate and I can not figure out how to add a signature to the beginning og a page. Any help appreciated.

Matt

Matt,

What you want to accomplish can be done with PageGate's Templating system and information about that system can be found in the online documentation here:
http://www.notepage.net/manuals/pg/v7/server/html/index.html

The specific section you'll be interested in is PageGate Admin - Using the PageGate Admin - Templates

Templates control how messages are formatted and are a key component in configuring PageGate to send messages. PageGate comes preloaded with a set of default templates that you may never need to modify. However, the Templates section provides Administrators easy access to modify any or all variables for any or all messages that leave the system.

Message templates are available at the Global, Interface, Connector, Carrier and Recipient levels.

This means that a message template can be configured for all messages that leave the system or messages specific to a given interface, connector, carrier or recipient. The priority order for the templates is as follows:

1) Recipient
2) Carrier
3) Connector
4) Interface
5) Global

This inter-connected template system enables changes to be made for the maximum number of recipients by making a single change to one of the parent templates.

For example, if a Recipient has a template that has been applied to it, PageGate will format any messages delivered to this recipient based on its template regardless of whether Carrier, Connector, Interface or Global templates have been configured. This allows you to create exceptions for Global rules by creating templates unique to a given Recipient, Carrier, Connector or Interface while the rest of your traffic remains formatted to a standard.

So, for example, let's say we wanted every message sent from the program to have those variables applied to them. You would want to modify the Program Template. You could format the 'Text' section of the Program Template to look something like this:

Sent from %Sender% on %Date% at %Time%. %Message%

That would tell the program that all messages need to have this prefixed before the message:
Sent from %Sender% on %Date% at %Time%.

I've also been looking for something like this. Thanks for sharing this. I will be using it. Thanks
