The email designing tool in Almabase is built with BEE Editor - it is pretty intuitive and really easy to use. Follow the steps below to learn how to compose an email on Almabase. ๐Ÿ‘‡


On the admin panel, go to Tools >> Communication center


Click on Design Email and select a template.

On the compose email page, click on "Design Email" to get started with some beautiful email templates that we have curated for you.

Here you will have the option to select a pre-designed template or custom design your email from scratch.

NOTE: To custom design your email, select the plain template under the basic category.

Example of plain and pre-designed email template.


Designing your email (if a plain template is selected)

There are three parts to understand when you are designing an email.

1. Selecting your preferred layout under the "rows" section, drag & drop the layout.

2. From the "content" section, drag & drop the type of content you want to add to your email.

3. Adjust the overall settings of the email under the "settings" section.

Note: If you want to attach a downloadable file such as an Excel file, images or PDF docs, you can do so by clicking on the Add an Attachment button.

This button is only active after any part of the email is created.

That's It! That's how easy it is to compose and design an email on Almabase. ๐Ÿ˜„
