Export email HTML

Before you start migrating email templates, there are a few things to note:

  • If you use an imported HTML template, you will not be able to use Omnisend content blocks.

  • For that reason, it’s recommended to create an email template with the Omnisend email editor instead of importing an HTML template.

  • HTML templates require advanced knowledge and if you're unfamiliar with the language, it's recommended that you work with a developer.

  • Jilt and Omnisend use different merge tag / personalization tag syntax. Each must be swapped out in order to include the correct personalized details.

  • Review the Omnisend guide for more information on importing HTML templates.

2. Swap out merge tags

Before you import a template, you'll want to replace all of the matching tags with personalization variables:
