Step 4. To edit the email, use the Edit List located directly below the summary. Feedback is divided into two categories: critical and stylistic. Critical items are things we strongly recommend you fix; stylistic are things to consider.

Step 5. Work your way down the edit list until you are satisfied with your Mailchimp email. Once satisfied, click the "Save" button at the top right to push your changes back to Mailchimp.

Here are some important things to remember about the marketing email integration:

  1. Your marketing emails are automatically brought into Atomic Reach when you integrate with Mailchimp. No additional steps are required.
  2. Atomic Reach cannot create emails for you from our platform because there are additional settings you must select when creating emails in Mailchimp. You must create the email in Mailchimp and access it via Drafts in the email module.
  3. Certain email templates cannot be brought into our platform. You will receive an error message if this is the case.
