Hope someone could help me with this. I have backorder enable on my website and I would like to add a backorder notifacation to the order email that displays the items that is backordered and the quantity.

It would help me a lot so I know witch items I have to order and dont have to have all the inventory in my head.

in magento 1 I added the following to


<strong style="font-size:11px;">
<?php echo $this->escapeHtml($_item->getName()) ?></strong>
<?php if ($_item->getQtyBackordered()): ?><br>
<span style="font-size: 10px">
(<?php echo $_item->getQtyBackordered()*1 ?> stk. bestilles hjem)</span>
<?php endif; ?>

How do I do the same in magento 2?

My version is 2.3.

  • <strong style="font-size:11px;"><?php echo $this->escapeHtml($_item->getName()) ?></strong><?php if ($_item->getQtyBackordered()): ?><br><span style="font-size: 10px">(<?php echo $_item->getQtyBackordered()*1 ?> stk. bestilles hjem)</span><?php endif; ?> – Kasper Elund Feb 2 at 9:53
