Test your template before setting it live

Last updated May 21, 2024

It is best to preview and test an email template before you send it. With our test email feature, you can get the full experience of your live email campaign. Send a test mail to see how the final template appears in your inbox. 

You may also want to check how to  Create an email template , or  Using the editor  to refine the design of your template. 

Preview

You can preview your email by clicking on the ‘Preview’ button on the top-right corner of the editor page.

The preview feature varies depending on whether you have added any AMP elements.

If you have not added any AMP elements, you will get a preview page with only the HTML version

ℹ️

If you have added AMP elements in your email, you will shortly receive both the AMP and HTML versions in your inbox. If your email template has no AMP elements, you only receive a single HTML version

ℹ️

There might be a difference in font size between HTML and AMP mail in Gmail mobile when a user clicks on 'Show quoted text' in the test email (only). If you want to test with the original font then you need to disable the "auto-fit messages" in the Gmail settings. To change the settings: Click on the menu icon on the top left -> Scroll down to Settings -> Click on General Settings -> Scroll down to 'Auto-fit email messages' and unselect it.

Step 4: You can also see the form responses under the ‘Submission’ tab. The test recipient(s) need only fill out the form in the AMP version of the test mail. Each response is reflected under this feature.  

The Submission feature is exclusive for AMP emails and not applicable to HTML mails.
