I'm wanting to send automated recurring birthday emails, but CC is forcing me to select from only their 4 template designs. I cannot choose to use my own design. I've tried editing their templates, but it won't save and will not allow me to use the edited template. Why am I forced to use CC template designs for automated recurring birthday emails? Please advise a solution.
Thank you for reaching out to the Constant Contact Community. It's my pleasure to assist you today.
I have taken a look at your account and have set up you template in a Birthday Email Automated Series. I did have to recreate your email in one of the selected Birthday templates. I have also submitted your feedback about being able to add your own email to a series without using one of these templates. Please check your account and ensure this will work for you. If not, please feel free to reach back out.
Thank you for choosing Constant Contact. Have a great day!
I took a look at the birthday email and the greeting tag is working appropriately. Anytime you send a test email, even to an alterante email address it will say the account holder's name. However, when sent in the live environment, it updates to the contact's first name. Please feel free to reach out if you have other questions. Thank you and I hope you have a great day!
