Predictive subject line
When editing an email, you can try out different subject lines and get an estimation of its open rate before you send it.
This feature is disabled by default. It is enabled when the first model is imported. A model is the result of training data sets specific to a given industry. Models allow the system to predict the open rate of the email when a new subject line is submitted.
This feature is available for email messages and for databases that contain English contents only. The trained model will be inconsistent and will lead to erroneous results if your instance contains emails in other languages. The option that allows you to test a subject is only visible if a model is already available on your instance.

To define the name of the sender which will appear in the header of messages sent, go the Properties tab of the Email Designer home page (accessible through the home icon).

The field then becomes editable and you can enter the name you would like to use.This field can be personalized. To do this, you can add personalization fields, content blocks and dynamic content by clicking the icons below the sender name.
- The From: email address field cannot be edited from this section. You can change it by editing the properties of the email from its dashboard. For more information, see List of email advanced parameters .
