How to Create a Row

1. Click on the Element and drag and drop it on the Canvas, outside of a Row, to create a new Row. Note the green line marker, and make sure that it says Drop to create a new Row before you drop it there.

Alternatively, if you're adding an Asset, it will be enough to just drop it where you wish to place it. It is already a Row so it will fall outside of the existing Rows.

How to Save a Row as an Asset

This is only one of the actions you can perform in regards to Assets. For more information about Assets, head over here.

Google Analytics, Segmentation and Assets

If you're saving a Row as an Asset from an email, please note that any Google Analytics or Segmentation settings that have been configured in the Email Editor's Bottom bar will not be saved with the Asset.

When you add the Asset to an email, it will gain the Google Analytics settings you applied in the Bottom bar (since these apply to the entire email).

1. Start by going to the Email Editor in the Design step.

Get here either by Creating an Email or by editing an existing Email.

2. Drag and drop Elements from the Design Panel into a Row.

Are you using Data Tags?

Data Tags correspond with Attributes in your Section's Data Model.

While each Section's Attributes are independent from each other, and available only when working in a specific Section, Assets are available account-wide.

If an Asset is created with Data Tags, they will work only for sendings made within the Section the Asset was created in (and to which the Attributes related to the Data Tags correspond). Read more about Data Tags...

Skip this step if you are creating an Asset from an existing Email.

Row Segmentation

If you're after a practical guide to working with Segments, head over to Working with Segments.

We also have a lot of content about how to create a Segment and the Segment builder.

Row Segmentation allows you to display personalised content to the Profiles that receive your email. By including and excluding Segments, different recipients will receive a different version of your email message depending on whether they belong to these Segments.

Once you set up your Segmentation preferences for your activity, note that any changes made to the Segment in the Segment Builder will be reflected upon sending. In other words, editing a Segment that is in use in any activities will result in the latest version of the Segment being used by the tool when sending to the recipients.

1. On the Row Settings, expand Segments.

EmailSP72.jpg

2. The Segmentation options will expand.

Under Included Segments, click Add included to include a Segment. To exclude Segments, click on Add Excluded under Excluded Segments.

If you include a Segment, only those Profiles who match the conditions of your Segment at the time of sending will see the Row; Profiles that don't match the Segment will not see the Row in their email.

If you exclude a Segment, those Profiles who match the conditions of your Segment at the time of sending will not see the Row in their email; Profiles that don't match, however, will see the Row.

3. Click Select and choose a Segment from the drop-down. You may repeat this step until you've chosen all the Segments for your Row Segmentation.

To design the perfect email, you'll need balance. Some of the most common questions when working with Elements in the Email Editor are about how you can resize Elements and how far the limits go when it comes to margins, line height, width, etc.
