Customize Alert Email
Alert Templates should be provided to configure the email subject, body and priority of email. This will help in categorizing the alerts in queues.
Thank you for your feedback.
We are planning to incorporate functionality in Azure Alerts – to allow users to customize the template used for notification; be it E-Mail or SMS.

Any update on this? Customising the alert email body is highly requested here.
Is there any update on Customizing the alert Email?
Please extend the message customization to SMS and triggers resolved message to SMS as well.

My customer also facing the similar problem, when they receive SMS/Push notification, there are no VMs or services info on it, they need to open e-mail to check the details. This is really inconvenient.
Are there any updates for Customize alert email? I would like to be able to provide customize info on email what was created by alert
Is there any update on this?

I QUITE agree with.
For example, Azure Monitor uses "Content-Type: text/html", please reconsider this.
And we would prefer to "Content-Type: multipart/alternative" , text/plain and text/html.
Any update on this ?
Agree with this. I would love to be able to provide our development team a customised message that can help them get started on diagnosing issues. So the ability to include a formatted HTML string in the message would be good. Failing that even just some free text would help because at the moment these messages are sometimes ignored as they are difficult to gauge their relative level of importance or how to get started debugging them as we have a large team
Any news about this feature? It would be very useful to include the Alert Description into the Alert Email in order to add some kind of "wiki URL" related to the alert.

This will also help in determining the affected customer in a scenario where we manage/monitor Azure subscriptions for various customers. In some alerts is it possible to change the subject of the mail, but not for all alerts.
Like AI alerts, service name should be in subject of email. I get my alerts on my phone and they all say
[ALERT RESOLVED] - Memory Percentage GreaterThan 75 (Percent) in the last 10 minutes.
I have 100s of webapps.
AI alerts look like this
Healthy: "alertname" for app "servicename"

I would also like to add that on my company provide iphone that I have to open each email to see what app it is reporting on becuase the subject line doesnt show them.
For example this is all I can see of the subject line:
"Healthy: Average Failed requests" fo"

Simpler formatting of the Alert e-mails. Using a simpler subject line with Activated and Deactivated clearly stated would make the alerts much easier to read and match.
The system currently sends the same subject line with [ALERT ACTIVATED] for both the initial activation and also any subsequent resolution.
