If you want to add a sign-up form to your website (or for example create a mini-course).

First go to the Automation tab (1), then click on the button "New autoresponder" (2).

Steps of creating the autoresponder:

1. Adding the general information.

Write a subject to your autoresponder (1). Next choose the sender address from the dropdown menu ("From:") (2). If you don't find the address you wish to send the emails from, pick "New address" from the dropdown and enter the address to the fields below. If you want, add the address where the replies should go ("Reply-to:"). The default address for the replies is the same as the sender address.

Adding the subject and the sender address are mandatory. When you have chosen a subject and a sender/reply-to address, click "Continue" (3).

2. Choosing the right template.

Choose the template that you have previously made for this autoresponder (1). If you don't have a template yet, read from User manual for the drag and drop editor how to create one. If you have chosen the template you wish to use, click "Continue" (2).

In this step you have also the possibility to test your autoresponder. Read more from Testing the newsletter how to test your letter.

3. Integrating.

Integrating means connecting this autoresponder with your newsletter sign-up form, configuring it with Wordpress, Magento or any other plug-ins. The code that is given in the Integrate step can be used to add the subscribe button to your homepage. An example subscription form code can be found under An example of a signup form.

If you have copied the code or the values necessary for putting the form up on your homepage, click "Continue".

4. Launching the autoresponder.

If you wish the email to arrive exactly after the subscription, leave the default option "Start immediately" and click "Save and activate".

You can also delay the sending time of the autoresponder by choosing "Delay delivery by" and then picking a time. You can make the autoresponder send birthday wishes to contacts by choosing the option "On contact's birthday". Choosing that option lets you choose a delivery time (before/after the birthday) as well.

Autoresponder in different languages

When there are many different language speakers in Your database, You can create a customized autoresponder.

To create a language based autoresponder, You need to create an new template with if-sentences and You should have language based parameters added to Your subscribers database.

Create a new template, where the content is written in different languages and is separated. For example: content in estonian; content in english; content in russian and all are separated with if-sentences.

Template should always start (1) with an if-sentence and end (2) with {% endif %}

If-sentences used in example:

{% if language == "ET" %}

{% endif %}{% if language == "EN" %}

{% endif %}{% if language == "RU" %}
{% endif %}

“ET”; “EN” ja “RU” are language parameters, by which the autoresponder selects the proper language content, when sending a letter to subscribers. Parameters in if-sentences should always be in “”.

When creating autoresponder, add this text to the subject field:

 {% if language == "ET" %}Täname, et liitusite uudiskirjaga.{% endif %}{% if language == "EN" or language == "" %}Thank You for subscribing to our newsletter.{% endif %}{% if language== "RU" %}СПАСИБО ЗА ПОДПИСКУ НА НОВОСТНУЮ РАССЫЛКУ.{% endif %}

It should look something like this:

When inserting that text to the subject field, it also shows a language based subject when sending letters.
