I'm trying to add comments to the ship email I sent, but the checkbox "Append Comments" is disabled. Does anyone know why this is happening?


In order to be able to check the "Append Comments" you need to check the "Email Copy of Shipment" checkbox right below the "Append Comments" checkbox.

If you don't have the "Email Copy of Shipment" checkbox it means it is disabled from the system->configuration section.

You can enable it from System->Configuration->Sales Emails->Shipment->Enabled

  • Thanks, but that option is already enabled. I'm using a custom template and maybe it's because of that? How can I had a comment block to my custom email? – user13141 Aug 22 '14 at 13:15
  • Try reverting to the default template. Or compare the differences between the default template and yours. – Marius Aug 22 '14 at 13:28

I needed to add the following to the template:

{{var comment}}
