Publishing a mailing for franchisees

With a main franchise account, you prepare a mailing to be published to the franchisees/subaccounts. They then can add local content and send the mailing to their target groups. In this article, we explain how to publish a mailing from your main account to the franchisees in Spotler Mail+.

To actually have the mailing sent out, you need to push it through to the subaccounts. To do so, you use the Publisher module. In the top right of the screen within that module, click on the yellow button New publication and go through the following steps:

  1. Determine publication properties
  2. Select accounts
  3. Select message
  4. Confirm publication

1. Determine publication properties

In this first step, you only need to give a name to the publication. This name is solely for own visibility within Spotler Mail+, and not visible for the recipients of the actual message.EN-NewUI_Publicer_st-1.png

2. Select accounts

Here you choose the subaccounts you want to publish the message to. It is possible to select all subaccounts with one click, or select one or several concerning accounts.EN-NewUI_Publicer_st-2.png

3. Select message

In this step you select the message you want to publish. Only messages with the status 'Final' within the Messages module, will be able to select. This is to prevent Spotler Mail+ from accidentally publishing messages that are not yet ready to be send out. You can then check the message for verification. You can also have the message been automatically archived after publication by checking this option. EN-NewUI_Publicer_st-3.png

4. Confirm publication

In this final step you confirm the publication. You can see the number of accounts you publish your message to and you can again verify your message to be correct. By default, a notification will be sent to the franchisee, so that they're aware of the new publication. You can add a personal note if you wish. The notification message looks like this:EN-NewUI_Publicer_st-4.png

Finally, confirm that you want to publish the message by checking the box. Then click Save & finish. The publication is done and can be viewed by the franchisees in their accounts.EN-NewUI_Publicer_st-4.5.png
