Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Go to Admin Center > E-Mail Notification Template Settings
  2.  Click on Spot Award Notification
  3.  Make changes to the body of the template
  4.  Save your changes
  5.  Award an employee
  6.  Employee receives an email; it will not reflect the changes you made to the template


This is caused by the template being a points-based program. The Spot Award Notification section in E-Mail Notification Template Settings was created for currency-based programs.
