Hi MEWS Community! 

I am trying to customize our email templates to have a much nicer look and feel and of course add more call to actions and upselling… 

 

What’s the best way to do this? Within MEWS? Within MailChimp? Hubspot? 

 

Can someone please advise? 

 

Thank you!

Hi @Blue Bay Curaçao

This would depend on what strategy you would like to take. In Mews the templates are in HTML code, so if you are or have a developer they can be written in HTML. 

You could use a service like Mailchimp or Hubspot to create the email in their editors & then export the html code and load into Mews. 

You could have the templates designed and developed on platform like https://www.upwork.com/

If you’re looking for inspiration, In this thread there are a couple or examples so far. 

Hope that helps, feel free to reach out if you have any further questions. 

Regards

I’m not sure why there is not a WYSIWYG editor in MEWS.  They’ve been about since about 1998! LOL!  There is Even One In This Text Box!

 

I’m actually slogging through some changes in this right now - so reminding myself what a drag!

 

I use https://html5-editor.net/ to edit and parse the HTML.

It works rather well.

 

I’m also keeping a “NOTION” page of the templates I have and their status.

I then do a lot of copy/pasting back and forth to the https://html5-editor.net/ page / Notion / MEWS and hope I don’t mess up!

As we do emails in English & Spanish - this is doubly tedious :)

 

Best of luck!

yes, also for me, these are the practical thing I do not understand the Mews Development team. For me it would take maximum one day to integrate such an (open source available) HTML5 editor into mews, including a button for inserting the available placeholders for the template.

A no brainer to integrate the comfort beeing standard today in even much cheeper systems.

Can anyone recommend an integration solution on the marketplace to send e.g. a reservation confirmation to the guest and thus bypass the missing functionalities of Mews?
