I want to provide another option for email template without creating the etc/config.xml or etc/system.xml, because i just need to add the new email option to the dropdown without creating new input field in store configuration. I tried it like this, but no luck:


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Email:etc/email_templates.xsd">
    <template id="test_email_template" label="Test" file="test.html" type="html" module="Test_Test" area="frontend"/>

You want to modify the old template then you need to do this things :

 1. Go To Admin.
 2. Marketing Menu -> Email Templates.

 3. Click on "Add New Template"

 4. Now select which you want to modify and load that template and save it.
