Customize Engage Emails
To customize your email, simply drag page elements to the template. Click the added element to see the settings on the right menu. If it's a text element, you should also see a toolbar on top of it for more setting options. To delete an element, select it and click the trash icon.
Add Dynamic Values
You can add dynamic values or merge tags to your email to make the email more personalized. For example, you can place a dynamic value for the first name in an email template so that the greeting includes the recipient's name rather than a generic “Hello!”. The system will replace these variables with contact information and event information present in our system.
Click View Dynamic Values to see what values you can add to the engage email.
