Posted by Zulu eDM Team, Last modified by Victoria Zulu on 21 November 2014 01:13 PM

You can add date wildcards into your email templates and campaigns to make it easier to send out your monthly campaigns by taking out some of the work for you!

To add the date wildcards into your template or campaign (you can choose from the following date combinations) follow these steps:



Step 1. Go into your campaign and highlight (or place your cursor) in the location where you want the wildcard displayed



Step 2. Just above the WYSIWYG there is a section where you can insert your selected 'wildcards'. Click on the dropdown menu and select the date option you wish to add into your campaign. In this example below we have selected 'year'. Click the "Insert" button to insert the wildcard into your campaign



Step 3. You will see that the wildcard has been inserted into the content for you



Step 5. Send a test to yourself to make sure that the wildcard is displaying correctly within your campaign
