How to Manage Templates

With SendPulse, you can create adaptive templates to notify your subscribers about an event or send other useful information via email.

You can also create template folders to organize them by specific labels. For example, you can keep all emails related to ordering a product on your site in a separate folder or use them to send out emails about upcoming events and promotions.

In this article, we will look at how to create and work with templates and folders.
