Preview as customer

Use this preview to make sure your personalization placeholders are populated correctly and conditional display is working as expected.

  • You can preview how your email will look in desktop and mobile devices.
  • To preview a personalized version of your email as a specific recipient, select an email address in the Recipient input field on the right. Personalization and conditional display based on contact attributes will be displayed accordingly.
  • To test personalization based on transactional parameters, add parameter name and value in Dynamic data field.
    • For example, to test {{params.FNAME}} and {{params.LNAME}} which are added in the email, add input in the format {"FNAME": "Joe", "LNAME": "Doe"} where Joe and Doe are the values to be displayed.
    • Click Refresh preview and your personalization placeholders will be populated with the values Joe and Doe.

Send test email

Before sending your campaign, you should always send a test email to ensure that your design, personalizations and links are all working fine. To send a test email:

  1. Search for email addresses that are part of your contacts. You can add more than one email address.
  2. Click Send test.
