SmartMail manual emails designed with the drag&drop composer are made up of multiple 'blocks' to make e-commerce email design easy. That doesn't mean that you can't choose to add your own flavour - besides changing your template (available from the Design page), you can manually create collection or product blocks using the Collections block.
The main reasons for using the collection block are:
- Uploading your own product images to ensure sizing is uniform
- Sharing Entire Collections using the same formatting as the Product Block
Collections are essentially blocks which are a combination of almost every other block - that is, you can insert an image, text, and a button in one single segment.
Step 1: Add the block
Simply Click the "Collection" button in the bottom right hand corner and a "Collection" block will appear (the circled block on the left with 'Collection Title')
Step 2: Design the Collection:
Choose how you'd like to customize each component of the Collection:
In this example, I added an image of the upcoming Spring Festival, information about it, and a button which links to the site to reserve a place at the Spring Festival.
