Email Styling with Markdown


Email Styling with Markdown

Markdown support for emails - How does it work, and how do I style with basic markdown? 

Monday, 4th December 2017 - Team Goody

By default, all emails support markdown for basic email styling. This means you can perform basic functions like boldening text, adding links or images, using Markdown (a commonly used way to style). This might differ from what you've been accustomed to compared to specific email programmes such as MailChimp

Overview of the Markdown: 

Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. It is designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats using a tool by the same name. 

This is intended as a quick reference and showcase for styling emails within the cloud-based software.

If you'd like to perform more complex emails, we encourage users to integrate their instance of Goody with the software providers such as MailChimp, which allow greater email styling functionality.
