Email HTML Editor

The Email Marketing HTML Editor allows you to create email content. While most of the functionality is very intuitive and similar to other editors, there are some advanced functions included.

Insert Template: This button allows you to insert a template you've created or use a template from the Designer Template collection.
 
Check HTML: This button allows you to check your HTML for any extraneous tags or content that cause malformed HTML or potential issues with specific email clients.
 
Create TXT Version: This button allows you to generate a text version of your message based on the HTML content.
 
Merge Fields: The HTML editor allows you to merge data from any field on the Person record into your message content. You must attach an Outreach List that contains at least one record before the merge field options populate in the drop down menu. The email editor populates a list of merge fields only after it reviews a person record from your Outreach List. Once the email editor reviews a Person record on your Outreach List, the merge field options become available to you. The process can take up to one minute before merge fields are available to you in the drop down menu.
  • Code Snippets: This allows you to insert pre-formatted text and links for functions like:
  • View in Browser- This will create a link in the message that takes the viewer to a browser version of the message. This is useful if the viewer is having difficulty reading the message in their email client software. The version displayed in their browser will contain the exact same content and will be tracked for opens/clicks just as the original email.
  • Forward to a Friend- To enable the forward to a friend feature, insert the merge field [FORWARD] in the content of your email. This message is sent 'as is' to the friend. CAN-SPAM legislation prohibits us from harvesting the email address of the friend.
  • NICKNAME- This will use the Nickname of the Person receiving the message. If the Person doesn't have a Nickname identified in Enrollment Manager, it will use the First Name. NOTE: This is different from the Nickname merge field that is also available.
  • Social Networking- This will create a series of Social Networking links that can be included in your message. Clicking these links will allow the viewer to share your message on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+.
  • Unsubscribe- This will create a link that the viewer can use to unsubscribe from future mailings. Selecting this option will update the Person Record to no longer allow Bulk Email messages.
Note: When you use the Forward to a Friend or Social Networking links, the message is shared exactly how it was received by the original recipient. This includes opens and clicks. So if a student shares the email message with three friends, the opens and clicks for those friends will be counted for the original recipient.
 
Advanced file upload function: A high-performance upload component that allows you to select and upload multiple files at once.
 
Insert clean HTML from Microsoft Word: When text is pasted from Microsoft Word a lot of unnecessary word specific markup is carried across. The Paste from Word button solves this by removing word markup before pasting the text into your message.
 
Unlimited levels of the undo/redo feature: While many editors cannot undo or redo certain actions, and certain table operations - such as cell merge or column deletion, the Bulk Email Editor has a custom undo/redo implementation to make you can now safely undo those actions.
 
Advanced table manager: Create and modify tables and table cells. Set their border color, alignment, cell spacing and more. Once you've created a table, simply right click inside of it and use the popup menu to change its attributes.
 
Image insertion and automatic upload: Thumbnail images are dynamically created; supports upload new images.
 
Clickable Image Maps: Image maps are pictures with clickable regions also known as "hotspots." When users click on one of the hotspots, they're directed to the web page you designate.
