Marketing Email Type Styles

Posted on by 30

Is there any way that we can create our own styles to select from when creating a marketing email? The default ones are all over the show. We would like to pre-define our heading, subtitle and body fonts/sizes/colours.

Is this possible? Where do we set these if so?

Thanks in advance!

    RE: Marketing Email Type Styles

    I have the same question like Samatha, where I have not understand the answer yet.

    So I want to remove the fonts "Comic Sans MS" and "Courier New" from the InlineToolbar because they are not in my corporate style guide:

    2020_2D00_03_2D00_05-18_5F00_36_5F00_21_2D00_Clipboard.png

    I have already tried it with the xml:

    <meta type="xrm/designer/setting" name="remove-fonts" datatype="font" value="Comic Sans MS,Courier New">

    but that was not working. (The opposite way of adding additional fonts like documented in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/marketing/custom-template-attributes#add-new-fonts-to-the-text-element-toolbar)

    Does anyone know how to achieve that?

    And the second issue was, that I have tried to edit the styles from the InlineToolbar, but also with no success:

    I want to be able to select in the "Styles" only H1, h2, h3, and so on and also remove the stylings which I do not need:

    2020_2D00_03_2D00_05-18_5F00_41_5F00_26_2D00_Clipboard.png

    And the third issue is also the same: how can I place the colors according to Corporate Style Guide in the color picker:

    2020_2D00_03_2D00_05-18_5F00_43_5F00_27_2D00_Clipboard.png

    Thanks for your help in advance, Carolin

    Yes, it is possible with extensive knowledge of coding.

    But, It is also possible with wide range of paid-for custom templates made available by the custom online templates' provider.

    Find one that suits you. I would recommend envanto. They do the job best.

    Hi Samantha,

    1. If you would like to bring OOB marketing email template Style properties to your own custom marketing email template,

    z001.JPG

    just add <meta> tag with CRM attribute within <head> tag, then assign these attribute to your elements css rules.

    You could read following article for full guidance, all available custom attributes are listed in it (heading, subtitle and body fonts/sizes/colours etc). 

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/marketing/custom-template-attributes

    2. You could enable wave 2 release if you want to give your marketing email OOB column layout feature like bootstrap.

    Hi @SamanthaHow,

    I would do that in 2 steps.

    1. Define your own custom CSS or Javascript. They normally gets stored as a Web resource (unless stored somewhere externally.)

    If it's a Web resource, don't forget to publish first.

    2. Add a reference in the head section of your marketing email HTML using the link tag,

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="*****URL ***styles.css">

    Don't forget to go live.

    Also you might find the below thread useful. It's kind of similar to what you are trying to do.
