User-Defined or System Template

  • To preview a given user-defined template or system template, select Content Templates from the menu to open the templates tree. Then select the node of the desired template in the respective User-Defined Templates or System Templates subtree.
  • To create a new user-defined template from scratch, select New Content Template Empty Template... from the menu (or go via the right-click menu of the parent template folder in the templates tree).
  • To create a new user-defined template by uploading a previously downloaded template ZIP file, select New Content Template Import Template... from the menu (or go via the right-click menu of the parent template folder in the templates tree).
  • To convert an existing standard content template into an advanced click-and-fill template, select the desired template node in the templates tree, then select Convert Into Click-and-Fill Template from the menu (or go via the right-click menu of the template node in the templates tree).
  • To create a new template folder, select the desired parent folder in the user-defined templates subtree and select New Template Folder from the menu (or go via the right-click menu of the parent folder in the templates tree).

The left pane displays the templates tree, with the "User-Defined Templates" and "System Templates" subtrees. The first subtree contains all user-defined click-and-fill templates, the second subtree contains all predefined system click-and-fill templates..

The pane on the right shows a preview of the currently selected template.

Depending on the template, there may be up to two preview tabs: HTML Preview and Text Preview, which show the previews for the respective email body types.

The top-right corner of the pane also shows the current state of the template.:

  • Enabled: The template is complete and enabled. It is ready to be used in the message content of a mail job.

  • Disabled: The template is complete but disabled. Because it is disabled, it cannot be used in a mail job, even though it is already complete. This is useful if you have complete templates that nonetheless shall not yet be used in a mail job.

  • Incomplete: The template is not yet complete (only applicable for user-defined templates). It is still under construction and can therefore also not be used in a mail job.
