Test an Email Template before Use

While creating an Email Template, you have the ability to test how it will look by sending it to yourself before making it live to Callers. If you are not familiar with creating an Email Template, follow our How To Create an Email Template article.

An email will be sent to the email address listed in the Email field of your profile. The test email will not include any CC, BCC, or Contact Variables. However, when this template is used on a Contact, these will be included at that time.
