E-mail creator: dynamic content

With the Dynamic content, it’s possible to personalize your email, important data from your event and direct this information to all your attendees.

Before you go ahead, make sure to read the Email Creator article to learn how to create and edit emails.

How do I add dynamic content to my email?

To add dynamic content to the email, you'll need to either select a typograph box or edit the text displayed in the body of your email. ​

To customize the email, you must drag the chosen options from the left into the email on the right.

Gif on how to use dynamic content

In the left-hand side menu, under Text contents, you will have a few options, including Dynamic links, Dynamic contents, Forms and Activities.

Dynamic links, dynamic content, forms and activities

Below we will describe each one in detail.

This section will include a few options that you can add to your email, i.e., Website, Registration form, Registration form RSVP yes, Registration form RSVP no, Download page and the last three, My account, My agenda and Virtual Lobby which will all include the token id to the virtual lobby which is the Magic link.

You can add as many as you need and when your attendees click on the link on the email they will be taken directly to the page chosen.

Text contents > Dynamic links

The information displayed in the email can be edited, meaning you can change what is written to whatever you need and still retain the link. Just click on the button insert/edit link on the Text content box.

Dynamic contents

The dynamic contents will contain event’s related data and also the attendee’s data. Meaning you can add the name of your event, the name of your attendees, the address of your event, the start and end date of the event, and so on. On the screenshot below we have all the options available:

Dynamic contents > Event / Person

Here’s an example of how it looks on the email creator and how it will look on the email the attendees will receive:

Dynamic content > Attendees email

One information that can be added is the password for your attendees by adding the text {{password}} manually in your email. Click here for further information on how to do so.

Forms

This will enable you to add the Custom forms created as a link in your email.

Text content > Forms

To learn more about Custom forms click here.

To add the registration form to your email you should use the dynamic links.

Is it possible to add a calendar invite with a specific time zone?

Yes, it is! To add a calendar invite you need to add a typograph box first. After you have added the box, in the left side menu under Text contents you can click on Activities and then choose the activity from the dropdown menu.

Text contents > Activities

This is how the content will look like in the email creator.

Activities > Agenda

And finally what the attendee will see when they receive the email and click on the link, which will enable them to add the invite directly to their calendars in their respective time zones.

Gcal / Outlook > Ical icons

If your event is open for a few days, we recommend you turn off the ics. file on the confirmation email. Otherwise, it will block people's calendars for the duration of the days. To turn it off, go to Settings > Tools > scroll down until you see the Extra section and make sure ics. file on confirmation email is set to No.

Advanced usage

On your Text Contents, you can use certain variables and conditionals to run template code on your email. The syntax used for this purpose is Handlebars.

To activate the template engine, you must use one of the following variables on your template:

  • agenda-array (event agenda)
  • my-agenda-array (user agenda)
  • presence-array (user agenda with attended activities)

Here is an example of a code you can render directly on your email:

Text contents box

{{#each my-agenda-array}}

{{activity-name}}

{{activity-date-begin}}: {{activity-time-begin}} - {{activity-time-end}}

{{/each}}
