Handy Hints

  • We recommended not uploading files larger in size than 1 MB.
  • Clean your text to ensure that your content displays correctly and any hidden characters or symbols are removed. To clean your text, paste it into a program such as Notepad or Wordpad.
  • We recommended using a call to action for any files or URLs that you include in your message to avoid your content being missed! eg. “Click here to download” or “Click here to view”.

    Note: See the Media Download tutorial for more information.
