Email builder components
The Email Builder web tool is separated into three components. The top section contains common email elements you will see as a recipient: Sender name, Sender's email and Subject.
Below that on the left side is the Layout design showing how all elements are assembled visually.
To the right is a menu of elements that every email can include and where you can edit the content.
By editing the Element "blocks" and adding them to the layout on the left, you determine the content and look of the email.
By default, the email design already includes certain components like the Labels, Open Release Button, Release Details and Track List. The remainder of the elements are optional.
