The menu feature enables your users to easily navigate through the various sections in your communication.

Your readers click the section in the menu that they are most interested in and they are brought to that specific section automatically.

This article will explain how to create a Menu within your email communication.

Step 1:

Drag and drop the “MENU” option from your content tiles to the top of your newsletter.

Step 2:

Click on the content row to make your Content Properties viewable in the sidebar on the right hand side:

(please take note that “An update from our CEO” is the first section of this communication)

 

Step 3:

Click “Add new item” and then within the “Text” field you will add the first Menu item for your email.

In the “Url” field, add a “#” followed by the Text from step 2 in all caps with spacing removed.

Step 4:

Next we are going to drag in a HTML content block above the first section of our email that we want the Menu to bring our readers to when they click on the first item within the menu.

In this example, that is “An update from our CEO”.

The reason for this is so the platform knows where to jump down to within the email when a reader clicks on an item in the Menu. 

Step 5:

Click on where it says “I’m a new HTML block”. Paste in this code : <a name="XXX"></a><br />. You will need to replace XXX with the name of the link or button without the #. So in this case it would be <a name="CEOUPDATE"></a><br />.

Step 6:

Repeat steps 1-5 for each of the menu options you would like to offer your recipients. 

Don’t worry the HTML content boxes will not be visible in the final version so you do not have to worry about any spacing/formatting issues being caused by adding in HTML Blocks.

Menu formatting:

Within Content properties you can update the font type, size and color. You can also edit the layout of your menu.

We recommend using this horizontal line as a separator so your Menu Items appear as below:   “ | ”  (feel free to copy and paste)
