Can I edit the email Notification on the Subject Line? I would find it extremely helpful if I could edit the email (especially the Subject Line) to the notifications I receive when my garage door opens and closes.  Is this possible?

While you can't edit the email, the device name is added to the subject of the default email.

I don't know if there is a limit on the name you can use, but you can add some text to the subject this way.

I'd like the word open or closed to appear at the beginning of the email, as I can only see so many characters on my mobile. So I don't have to actually open each email. device name, not as important, but if I could edit it... would be great

Ah okay, I thought you were looking to create an email rule based on the subject to trigger an IFTTT watched email for a IFTTT device.

I do see your point, the word OPEN/CLOSED is at the end of the subject line, if you make a very short device name it might be easier to read but you wont be able to achieve what you really want.

My device name is 4 characters long. Can't get much shorter. Oh well. Thought it was a simple request.

Joe,

The subject line from your email notification can be changed by renaming the device you set up the notification for. For Example, If you do not name your device your subject will read “MyQ Alert: Garage Door Opener Just Opened.” You can change the subject line by naming the device and the subject line will replace Garage Door Opener with the name of the device. For example, if I name the device “Man Cave Door,” the subject line in my email  will read “MyQ Alert: Man Cave Door Just Opened.”

To change the name of the device (website): 

1.  Login to your MyQ account.

2.  Click on Manage Devices. It’s the icon that looks like a gear on the right side of the screen.

3.  Choose which place you would like to edit by clicking on the button with the name of your place. If not changed, the default is HOME.

4.  On the next page, change the name of the garage door opener under the Devices field.

5. Click Save and Close.

After saving the new name of the device, test out the notification.
