Previewing your email
As you add modules to your email, you'll see the Preview of your email being populated with the modules. This updates live as you select settings (such as colours), and add content.
You can select different devices to preview the email on by selecting the device icons on the top left of the preview screen. You can also adjust the size of the preview by dragging the sides of the email preview.
You can also preview 'Images Off', and if you have your Litmus account connected, 'Litmus Previews' by selecting the 3 dots beside the device icons.
This allows you to see what the email will look like once you send it.
For email previews, you can set custom viewports. This allows you to set a max-width for when you would like your email to display for another device type.
For example, if you set mobile to 320 and tablet to 720 anything under 720 will be tablet preview and when the width hits 320 it will change to mobile preview
To do this:
- Head to your Organisation settings and select General
- Scroll to Email Preview Settings
- Select 'Enable custom viewports'
- Enter the max-width in pixels for mobile and tablet
- Select 'Save Changes'
Sending a test email
Before you export your email, you'll want to send yourself a test email. You can send emails directly from Taxi for Email to any user of your Taxi account, or to any test email addresses that you've set up in your account.
To send a test email:
- From the email you're working on, click 'Send Test Email'
- Choose the recipient from the dropdown, and press 'Send Test Email'
You can search for a user or team using the search box. The email address show alphabetically under each heading. You can also add a new Test Address from here.
3. Your test email has now been sent
Before you send a test email, make sure you select any segments if you want to show specific variants of content in dynamic emails.
You can select yourself to be a recipient of the test email.
