Email Designer and Search

OVERVIEW

In release 2015 R2, the feature called Email Template Editor was renamed Email Designer.

Contact your Customer Success Manager to upgrade to the latest release of CPQ Cloud.

Admins can use the Search field, in the Properties Panel of the Email Designer, to search for characters, words, phrases, and so on in an Email Designer template.

In addition to what can be found by a browser search, Email Designer search functionality will also search Elements in Layouts that are collapsed in the Template Flow. With this functionality, the entire template is always searched, even if some parts of it are not visible to the user.

ClosedUsing Search

Type text into the Search field and either press Enter or click the magnifying glass to open the Search dialog box, shown below.

In the Search dialog box, you can specify additional parameters, such as Match Case and Search Attributes Only.

Click Minimize to hide the Search dialog box and make the Search panel on the left active.

Enter content in the Search for: field, if necessary, and either press Enter or click Search to start the search.

The results of a search appear in the Search dialog box. Search looks for a string throughout the template—including the text content of all Textual elements like the Text, the Subject, and attribute labels. The string does not have to be visible to the user for it to be found.

The first time you search for a string, the Search dialog box appears. In the Template Flow, all matching keywords will be highlighted.

Each result in the Search dialog box has a Go To button associated with it. Clicking Go To for any result:


ClosedUsing the Search Panel

When searching from the Search Panel on the left, all the matching keywords in open Sections will be highlighted. You can also see which result you are currently viewing, out of the total number of results.

The Search panel includes the following buttons:

Button Name Button Description
Previous

Move between matching items. If the subsequent item is in a collapsed layout, the layout expands and you will be taken to the matching item.

Note: When search is on the first match, the Previous button is disabled.

Next

Move between matching items. If the subsequent item is in a collapsed layout, the layout expands and you will be taken to the matching item.

Note: When search is on the last match, the Next button is disabled.

Search Results List Return to theSearch Results list.
Cancel Close the Search Results list.

NOTES

For multi-language templates, search is confined to the currently selected language.

The Search field can be used to search for attribute labels in the template, but not attribute values. The attribute values are inserted into the template when it is generated.
