Web Services has added to Email+ the ability for users to preview emails when using the mail merge feature. In order to preview emails you must have a group selected on the General tab. A variable must be found within either the subject, email message or skin. If you have met these requirements then the Preview tab will display a list of emails addresses found within your group.
- Select the envelope icon next to any of the email addresses listed on the Preview tab in order to have an email sent to you that will be identical to the email that will be sent to that particular person. All mail merge fields will be applied to the email.
- At the top of the list of email addresses we provide an input box for entering any email address found within your group. This way if you have a high profile user within your group you can preview their email.
- If you click directly on the email address it will display the email in the box to the right of the email list.
- At the top of the large preview box there is a label, "view full example". If this is clicked it will open up a new tab in the browser with a large view of the email.
Why did we add this?
There was a user recently that sent out an email that contained question marks within her mail merge variables. This was a result of non-visible characters that were in the group that was uploaded. If the user would have been able to preview some of the emails being sent out then this issue could have been identified and fixed. We want to make sure you have the ability to avoid this type of issue.
