Can I format the %message placeholder?



I am able to create custom notifications but I am not able to format the %message placeholder in order to be more human readable.

Hello Ilias,

The placeholder %messages provides the exact same message which is also displayed in the sensor message field; this indeed cannot be changed before it's getting passed into the variable.

What exactly do you want to achieve?

Kind regards,
