Developing a properly working email with multiple variables often takes a lot of time and effort. Marketing wants to test emails, but does not have the technical knowledge to understand every part of the email, while your development team has lost track of all those different sources. Samples solve that for you.

Samples

Useful Flowsteps with this feature

Save the latest version of your email, including data, to create a sample

Rewrite subject lines to make clear the sample is a test version of the email

Retrieving external data can cause errors as well, make sure to check if it (still) works!

What does the

feature do?

Efficiently test every part of your email

Does your order template still work, when you suddenly have to deal with a foreign currency? Or does that dynamic block, that only applies when a product is out of stock, still work? You might want to test every email, because no customer is the same. By creating a sample version of an email, you can test changes efficiently, without having to use your source system to send emails all the time. Samples allow you to see the effect in no time.
