Building Email Templates
How to create a booked confirmation email template from scratch.
- Identify the purpose of the email message you want to communicate
- What data elements are needed from My Fundraising Place to support the purpose?
- What communications strategy do you want to use (appearance of a personal email, sent from the dealership team, or from the sales person?)
- What logos / images should be included?
- Identify data fields you want to include in the email template
- Plan how you want to present your data and control spacing when viewed on different devices
- Build display framework (tables or no tables)
- Type message, insert merge fields, insert images, set formatting of text and merge fields
- Formatting: Stick with common fonts, fonts need to be available on Azure server
- Images: Use small images, png or gif formats work best, non-transparent background is also recommended
- Test, double check formatting of merge fields
