Digimind lets you structure your newsletters in two different and complimentary ways:
- single or multi section newsletters
- by folders
You can select to use only one of these methods, or use both at the same time. To find out more about creating newsletters using folders as a structure, follow this link. To find out how to use multi sections in a newsletter, read this post.
Depending on the method you select, you will see the same information presented in different ways. The choice you make will be dependent on factors such as:
- the complexity of your folder structure
- the number of sections you would like to see in the newsletter
- how to best meet the needs of the newsletter recipients
Single Section and Multi Section
Both methods use the My Reader interface to select the information you would like to include in the newsletter. This means you can use projects, folders, tags, and other My Reader options to define the contents of the newsletter.
The advantage of using the multi section option is the ability to create and name sections of your newsletter. These sections will be displayed in the newsletter as headings.
In order to use multi section newsletters you need to be working with a template from the Digimind platform. If you are using a template that we have personalized for you, you will need to contact our technical team to find out how to activate this for your newsletters.
This allows you to use the folder structure of your project to create sections in the newsletter. The folder names will be displayed in the newsletter.
What do I see?
I created these newsletters working from this project:
As the information was stored into the folders, these tags were applied:
This allowed me to set up four different newsletters, working from the same set of stored information:
- single section
- single section by folders
- multi section
- multi section by folders
I used the Digimind template Web 2.0 to create the newsletters.
The information is presented in a single block.
Single Section by Folders
The newsletter is divided into sections based on the folders in the project.
The newsletter is based on the three sections I created and named London, Milan, Paris.
Multi Section by Folders
The information is displayed in the three sections I named and created. The folders are used inside the sections to subdivide the information.
