In this process, you’ll be able to customize your settings, tailor your content, design your emails, set up automated scheduling, select your desired sites, and even check for any missing integrations or email options.

Frequently asked questions about our system of template

Can I customize the email or report content with variables?

At the moment, the system does not support customizing the email or report content with variables such as a client’s first name. If you need to make changes that do not apply uniformly to your site selection, you will need to create a new template. However, we are working on adding this feature in the coming weeks.

In which languages is available the report?

The report is available in almost every language (full list here).

Can I duplicate a template?


Can I see if my clients read the report?

Yes, you can easily track if your clients have received and opened your email by going to your dashboard, clicking on your website name, and then navigating to the report tab.
