How To Get Sendgrid Template Id

SendGrid’s transactional templates are a robust feature that enables you to generate and control email content without having to modify your application’s code. Instead of embedding email content directly into your application, you can utilize these templates and retrieve them using their distinct Template ID. But how exactly do you obtain this Template ID? That is the topic we will dive into in this blog post.

Logging into Your SendGrid Account

The first thing that you need to do is to log into your SendGrid account. If you do not have an account yet, you can create one on the SendGrid website.

Navigating to the Transactional Email Templates

Once you’ve logged in, you need to navigate to the transactional email templates. Here’s how:

  1. First, click on ‘Email API’ on the left-hand side menu.
  2. Then, click on ‘Transactional’.
  3. Finally, click on ‘Templates’. This will bring you to the page with all your transactional email templates.

Finding the Template ID

Now that you’re on the page with all your transactional email templates, it’s time to locate the Template ID. The Template ID can be found in the list of templates. It is a long string of characters that is unique to each template.

If you hover over your desired template, you will see the Template ID at the bottom. Just click on it to copy it to your clipboard.

Using the Template ID in your application

Once you have the Template ID, you can use it in your application to send emails using that template. Here is how you do it using the SendGrid Node.js library:

const sgMail = require('@sendgrid/mail');

const msg = {
  to: '[email protected]',
  from: '[email protected]',
  templateId: 'd-12345678901234567890123456789012',
  dynamic_template_data: {
    subject: 'Hello from SendGrid',
    name: 'Some One',
    city: 'Denver',


In this code, you would replace ‘d-12345678901234567890123456789012’ with your Template ID.


That’s all there is to getting a SendGrid Template ID! With this ID, you are able to create dynamic, customizable emails without having to hard code them into your application. This allows for greater flexibility and ease of use for you as a developer. Happy emailing!
