For our October 21st Courier Live, Avi Goldman joined me to talk about building Interactive Emails using Parcel. Parcel is a code editor built for email development. It streamlines your development workflow to help you rapidly code high-quality emails. Together we walked through building an Interactive Welcome Email that prompts the recipient to select how they want to be contacted. We then used these selections to add the recipient to the appropriate Courier Lists.
Check out the video below to watch us:
