Email template update: New default content

Improvement


You can now add default content to your email templates to make writing emails a simpler task in your future. When you create a broadcast or sequence using an email template, it’ll start with the default content you added, which you can edit for your new email. This means saving time on duplicating old broadcasts to make a similar one. Changing the default content for a template won’t affect any of your existing emails using that template. It only affects the starting point for emails moving forward.

To add default content, open an email template in the template editor and enter your default content in between the tags that say “Start of default content”/“End of default content”. Then click the “Save” button.

You can update your email templates here.
