You should get the following output:

2. To view more than 10 entries in a single page, just click on the drop-down list:

3. You can filter the templates, based on the category:

4. To view a template, click on its eye button. It will open the template in a new tab on the browser.

This is essentially how the targets will view these templates via email:

6. You can change the Email Template Name to one of your likes.

7. Additionally, you can set a different category for that template.

8. Click on NEXT STEP to proceed to the Template phase:

9. On the new prompt, you can edit the template as you wish. For example, you could change the Email Subject:

10. If you want to return to the General Information phase, there is a PREVIOUS button found at the bottom of the page.

Please note that in doing so, the Email Subject will be erased, and you will have to enter it again.

11. We can also view a Preview of the template on the right-hand side.

13. Enter the details required and move to the Template phase in order to edit.

21. The “plus” option of the menu, provides a diversity of things to your text, such as video, table, etc.

22. Some other options exist on the right side of the menu. The first one that looks like your usual settings symbol, provides a range of variables. These variables help in retrieving and applying real time data during the campaign, to make the page look credible.

23. For example, for a recipient called John Doe, the variable named {{.FirstName}} will retrieve the word John, so whenever the campaign is sent, it will use that user’s first name to make it believable:

24. The next option with the two arrows (< >) provides a code view of our page where you can add or edit the html code as you wish:
