Exporting to Contactlab
This article applies to the Email builder in all plans.
Level up your emails in Contactlab.
You can easily design your emails in the Beefree builder and then push them to Contactlab for sending. With Beefree, you can use this connector that will let you export an email to Contactlab with only one click.
Here are 2 ways that you can connect your Contactlab account in Beefree:
- From the Workspace Settings section: connect your Contactlab account before you start designing.
- From the Export options of your email.
Setting up a connector does not sync your designs with external services. If you update a design after exporting it, you must re-export to see the updates.
Follow the steps below or watch our video tutorial.
1. Connect from Workspace Settings
Go to Settings > Connectors.
Click the Connect button for Contactlab.
Fill out the information in the modal to begin setting up the connector. Please note that your Contactlab credentials are not stored in Beefree. They are just used to connect your accounts.
2. Connect from Export
When your email is ready, click on the Export button on the Email Details page. This option is also available from the actions menu for your email.
Then click on Push to your sending system.
A new modal will display the list of available connectors. Select Contactlab and follow the steps to connect your accounts. If you have already connected, you will not be asked to do so again.
Exporting Existing Designs
Beefree will recognize if you're exporting an email already pushed to Contactlab. You can update the existing version in Contactlab using the Update existing option. This export option will overwrite the existing version. If you want to export a new version of your email instead, use Create as new.
Beefree will confirm that the design has been successfully exported. Your email will be exported to your Contactlab account as a new template. It will be available in the contactsend environment.
To send your email using Contactlab, start by creating an email campaign. If you're not ready to send an email right away, you can edit it in Contactlab's design editor. Start by selecting create, then email design. Your Beefree design will be in the My Templates tab.
Multiple Workspaces / Customers
Do you work with multiple brands or clients and need to easily manage all your emails and templates?
No problem! The Enterprise Version of Beefree allows you to set up different workspaces so you can better organize your email creation workflow. Enterprise allows you to specify different connectors for each workspace so you never need to switch accounts.
For example, say you are a digital marketing agency with 10 clients that use Contactlab. With Enterprise, you will be able to create 10 workspaces in Beefree and connect each of them to their specific Contactlab account.
