Full Story

Email Folders allow you to group communications together by a particular subject. Many of our customers utilise multiple Folders; each with very different settings. For instance, you may want to allow employees to share content from a customer-facing newsletter, but not from your weekly organisational announcements. This can be done from the Folder Settings area.  

To Access the Folder Settings:

  1. Go to the Account drop-down and select Account Settings.

Note: There are several other ways to access the Folder Settings; from the Comms drop-down or the Settings drop-down when editing an email for example.
  1. On the Account Settings Screen, scroll down to the bottom to view a list of your Email Folders. Click the small gear icon beside any Folder, under the Actions column, to open the Folder Settings for that Folder.

Folder Settings

The Folder Settings will allow you choose a variety of settings for your Folder, based on your preferences or business needs. Throughout the Folder settings, you will see a small '?' sign after each setting title, this will give you a little more information around what things mean. See below for a brief summary on each section of the Folder Settings: 

  • Folder Summary: This includes the Folder Name, Description and country. You can also Control Access to Email Folders with Audiences.

  • Email Microsites/Web Settings: Here you can set what appears at your Folder's homepage. This can be a blank page, the latest published email, or a specific email.

  • Default Sender Details: Sets the default 'From Name', 'From Email Address' and 'Reply-To email address' that appear whenever you send a communication from the Folder(these defaults can be overwritten when sending any email). (see more at Default Sender Details)

  • Analytics: Links to Poppulo Analytics or enables Poppulo Harmony to send info to your Analytics provider. (see more at Google Analytics - Track External Links)

  • Social Features: Turn On Likes for your Folder and Allow your Employees to Share Articles on Social Media.

  • Comments: Allows you to Enable Comments for your Folder and Turn on/off Social Features to decide if your readers will be able to post comments beneath articles within Newsletters, or under a Flyer, in your Folders. You can also decide which users can comment and whether these comments need approval in the Additional Comment Settings. 

  • Privacy Policy: You can save the text of a Privacy Policy here, for use in any emails in the Folder. ​
    Note: You can use your privacy policy in an email by inserting a 'Macro'. (Click the macro icon in the editing toolbar; selecting Content Macro from the drop-down menu and then select Publication Privacy Policy)
