The Stackla MailGun Plugin allows for brands to send automated emails to Content Creators whenever they submit fresh content via a Direct Uploader, or whenever their content has been published from the Platform.
Included below are the steps required to setup the plugin.
Connect MailGun Account:
In order to use the MailGun account, a brand either needs to have their own account with the Provider, or organise via their Customer Success Account Manager to pay and use a Stackla account.
Once an account has been setup, the first steps that a brand much take is to add the domain they have configured within MailGun to Stackla (Domains can be found here) and the API Key for the respective Domain (API Keys can be found here).
These values can be provided to your Customer Success Account Manager, who can add them to your MailGun Plugin.
Configure Email Settings:
The Stackla MailGun plugin allows for brands to easily configure the following settings which will be applied to all Emails sent via the Plugin:
- From Mail Address (Defines the Email Address - ie. firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Brand Name (Defines the From Name - ie. My Business)
- Brand Logo (URL to Brand Logo that appears at the top of the Email template)
- Brand Link (URL Link to Brand Webpage)
- Call to Action Text (Text Promotion that appears at the footer of the Email template)
- Call to Action Image (URL to Promotion Image that appears at the footer of the Email template)
- Call to Action Link (URL Link to Promotion)
Only From Mail Address needs to be populated in order for the Emails to send. An example of all the fields being populated is shown below:
The Stackla MailGun plugin allows for brands to fully customise the templates of the two Emails that will be sent out.
Located under Section Two of the plugin, brands have three sections that they can edit the HTML for:
- Submission Aggregated
- Submission Published
Template is where Brands can define the default layout of the Email which will be applied to both Email types, whilst the Submission Aggregated and Submission Published relate to the specific elements of those two emails (ie. Subject Line, Email Body).
For all three tabs, brands have complete control over the HTML code for the specific Emails, as well can inject various dynamic values into the template.
