why specify Email from (display name) on every template?

    For email templates, we have the option of specifying the "From (Display Name)" on every email template.

    However, it'd be a big time saver if this could be entered only once, and applied to all pertinent email templates, with the option to override a specific template if needed.

    ... thats pretty much what it does now. It'll use the default reply-to in the email settings if you don't put anything in the template section.

    I know that. Using a "display name" is more professional than an email address.

    I agree that there could be a global variable in case you don't want to use reply-to address and also don't want to set them manually. I must say that I do like they can be different though; as someone who gets a lot of email already, being able to search by display name for certain notifications, is really helpful!
