Email Builder Controls
Once you have added a block on the email editor then you also get hundreds of options to customise the design of that particular block. You can change font colours, size, borders, spacing, background etc.
For changing colours and background colour you can make use of the built in colour picker or add hex codes. There is also an option to add a background image to the whole section.
Each WordPress notification email has dynamic content. Let’s say a user has signed up on the website. Then an email will be sent to the user with his/her username and a link to set his password. In this email username and activation link are dynamic data as they will be unique for each user.
You can set dynamic data in the visual email editor with the help of shortcodes. We provide hundreds of shortcodes depending upon the type of notification email you are customising. With the help of our shortcodes you can fully customise the dynamic data.
What good is an email if it doesn’t look good on mobile devices.. Right?. All the templates created with Visual Email Builder are fully responsive. You don’t have to put any extra effort to make them look good on all the different devices as that is taken care of by the builder itself.
There is no guesswork involved. You can directly see how the template looks on different devices directly from the builder itself.
