Key Features of the UniSender Builder

The visual editor allows you to create beautiful emails  without any design and coding skills.

To make a newsletter in the builder, you just need to know  what you want it to look like. Then you structure your email using rows, add the desired blocks with content — and your email is ready-to-go. You can place blocks and rows as you like by dragging them to any part of the layout.

To access  the UniSender  builder, sign in  to your Personal Account. On the main page, select "Create а campaign". Then click on "Start from scratch" and select "Email builder".

When the email design is prepared, you only have to fill it with content. To do this, add the desired blocks from the Content tab to the layout. The block can contain a text, an image, a button, a video, and even a gif.

Where to find saved rows templates in the builder

The row with content can be saved in any of these sections, except for Pre-designed and Empty sections.

Emails created in the builder are adapted to mobile devices automatically. This feature can be disabled for each row. To do this, click on the Row tab and move the slider to the right.

Configuring email adaptation to mobile devices.

If you leave the default settings , blocks in the row will adapt proportionally to  the screen size. As a rule, this means building blocks will be placed  under each other.

Adapt an Email for Mobile Devices

Before sending the newsletter, be sure to check how the email looks on your PC and on your mobile device. To do this, click on "Action" — "Preview" in the upper-left corner and switch between DESKTOP and MOBILE modes. To close the preview, click on the X in the upper-right corner of the screen.

Previewing email on different screens.

The preview mode only simulates the screen size. If you want to see how your email looks in your mailbox, send a test email directly from the builder. To do this, click on the "Action" — "Send test" in the upper-left corner drop-down menu. In the window that opens, select which address to send the newsletter from, and then enter the addresses where you want to send it.

Sending a test email.

The builder saves automatically the layout every 5 minutes. If you want to cancel the last action, click on the Back arrow under the chat icon. To see the revision history in the current session, click on the timer icon.
