Creating Email Templates

With behavioral emails, you can keep your customers informed of important events like hitting usage quotas, billing notifications, and more without requiring manual work or engineering resources. You can design HTML emails right in Moesif and include merge tags such as the SDK a customer is using or how many API calls they made. To reduce your maintenance overhead, Moesif utilizes your existing email service provider such as SendGrid or AWS SES so you can reuse your DKIM authentication, click tracking, unsubscribe lists, etc.

Accessing Behavioral Emails

To get started with behavioral emails, click the Alerts and Emails menu at the top and then select Behavioral Emails. Within the behavioral emails section, you can create as many templates as you need. A template includes both the email design along with other info such as which cohorts of users should receive the email.

Creating Email Templates

Configuration Fields

Sent To

You can send your email to any saved user cohort. A saved user cohort is a dynamic group of users defined based on their behavior such as “Users who made over 100 API calls in last 5 days from Node.js” and can be created within the users analytics panel.

From Address

The from address is the address which will be used to send the email such as support@acmeinc.com. Keep in mind your domain should be configured correctly for DKIM and SPF in your email provider for the best deliverability.

Recurring workflow

Normally, a user can only receive the same email once. However, you can make the template recurring. Users who still meet your cohort criteria can be re-enrolled into this email workflow. Recurring workflows are useful for things like exceeded quota warnings, monthly billing reminders, etc.

If you set the workflow as recurring, you must define the time period that must pass before a user will be eligible for re-enrollment. Keep in mind the user must still be a member of your cohort after the time has passed.

For example if you want to create a workflow that sends warning emails to any customer who exceeded their subscription up to two times per billing month, you could define the re-enrollment period 15 days.

CC and BCC

You can also add a CC or BCC. Many CRMs provide a BCC address so you can log any customer communication right in your CRM.

Subject line

We recommend writing short and concise subjects that describe the contents of the email.

Email Editor

The email editor allows you to build beautiful, responsive emails using drag and drop content modules. The templates have been extensively tested with Litmus and Email On Acid to ensure rendering in a variety of email clients.

Tools

There are two types of modules you can add to your email template:

  1. Layout blocks which is a container that can hold content modules and make layout easier for things like multiple columns.
  2. Content modules such as text, images, and even custom HTML. Content modules can also be placed in layout blocks.

To customize the style of the email like link colors and typeface click the body button.

Merge Tags

Merge tags allow you to personalize the email for each user. Merge tags can be inserted into a block of text by clicking on the “Personalize” button in the text editor toolbar. Any user field including custom metadata can be inserted into the email such as the name of the user or their plan.
