            Once the Email Campaign is created, users can set up an invitation mail with generic mail body and few fields configured within the mail body.

            To set up an invitation email, 
            •  Click on Invitation Email in your created Email Campaign,.

            • A pop-up will appear. 
            • The "From" field will be empty and disabled until you have not done Email Configuration. Email configuration allows you to specify the Email address from which you wish to send out Invitation Mails. If no Email configuration has been done, the invites will be sent from system generated auto-mailers. For more details Refer Section Email Configuration.

            • The "To" field will show the name of the Distribution List for which you have created your Email Campaign. This means emails will be sent out to all the members of that Distribution list.
            • Enter relevant subject for the email in the Subject field. 
            • Enter email body. There will be a default mail body present for an invitation Email. You can modify the Email body as per your requirement and also apply properties available to make your mail more appealing.
            • Make sure that you have the Survey Link in place in the mail body. The syntax for adding Survey URL is "{{surveyurl}}"
            Warning : While modifying your mail body, make sure that you do not delete the Survey link. You can Embed the Survey Link at whichever place you want in you Email body by writing "{{surveyurl}}".

            • You can also configure other fields from your Distribution List in you mail body. 
            For Example: If you have a column named "First name" in your Distribution list, you can configure it in your mail body by writing its syntax as "{{First name}}" in the mail body. Now when each member of the Distribution List will receive the Email, in place of {{First Name}}, they will see their own names as given in the Distribution List.



            Similarly, you can configure all the columns present in your Distribution List by placing the column name within curly brackets at required places of the mail body.
            • You can also Save your Subjects and Email body to Cloud assets or Company Assets and can Load them at later stage from their saved location in any other Invitation Email in which you wish to have the same subject and mail body.

            • To save and Load your subjects and mails, simple click on the Load/Save button adjacent to Subject field and Email Field. 
            • Select the appropriate time on which you wish to send your survey from the "When to Send" drop-down list. The default field is "Immediately" which if elected send the invites immediately to the members of Distribution List. You can also Custom set a date on which you wish to send the survey.
            • Select the appropriate "Expires in" field from the drop-down.
