Populating a template from an RSS or XML source

UND

I have an internal web page that is regularly updated with news items. I would like to automate distribution of these news items. The idea is to build a template were I could automatically populate specific template fields (Subject, headlines, sub-headings, individual articles, etc) by reading this XML (or RSS) web page. I would define these field names in the XML file, and then set up the template fields (with proper HTML/CSS formatting) so that it pulls each specific field content from the associated XML tag.

 

Is there some way to do this in Constant Contact?

Hi @UND , 

 

Currently, we do not have an option for an RSS block in our email templates, but I will pass that along as a feature request for you. Our engineering team will reach back out with any updates we have on this request. If you are comfortable working with HTML, we do have a custom code editor that you are welcome to use. This should support that kind of code.
