Clone HTML only displays for Advanced HTML Email Authors and will create a new copy of the message in the HTML workflow. See instructions below.

NOTE - Sender Tokens and an Unsubscribe token must be present in the message before it can be released.

NOTE - There is no auto save feature, so save often.

Making Changes

Once Template has been chosen for a message and "Next" has been used, the Draft card wording will change:

Clone HTML

NOTE - This option will only be available to admins with the Advanced HTML Email Author right.

NOTE - Using this option will create a new copy of the message. A change made in one message will not be reflected in the other message. They are unique messages once the clone takes place.

NOTE - Customer Support and iModules Design staff will not troubleshoot or recommend changes to improve emails deployed using the Advanced HTML workflow.

  1. When working with the message body, click the Clone HTML button.

  2. A window will appear so you can assign a name to the HTML message.

  5. The HTML information now applies.

    NOTE - any email details in place at the time Clone HTML is used will be carried over to the HTML message.
