Send a test email
Similar to when a teacher tells a student to double-check or even triple-check their answers before submitting a test, it is always a great practice to send test emails to yourself or your team members before sending out the final version to all of your subscribers.

Test Email Recipients
In your Seguno Settings tab, use the Test email recipients input to enter up to three email addresses that you want to receive a copy of your test emails. This allows you to send the test to multiple colleagues or test the email in multiple different email clients (i.e Gmail vs. iCloud). To add multiple recipients, simply add a space between the email addresses. Regardless of the email addresses you use to test, we always recommend testing on both desktop and mobile devices.
Forwarding emails for testing purposes may result in distortions or styling issues due to email limitations. Always send test emails directly from Seguno for accurate deliveries.
Sending a Test Email
From within the editor of any email, you can send the email to your test recipients in order to see what the email will look like in your inbox.
To send a test email, navigate to the editor of the Newsletter or Automation you're working on. Use the Actions menu at the bottom of the Sections panel and then select Send test email on the menu. The email does not have to be saved before sending the test, which allows you to visualize the changes in your inbox without changing the current message.
Check your inbox for your test email, which will have the prefix "TEST:" in the subject line. Be sure to double-check for missing or incorrect hyperlinks, spelling and grammatical errors, and your sending details such as From name, Reply-to address, and preview text.
If you're using Seguno to generate unique discount codes (unique codes per subscriber), the discount codes will appear as sample codes in test emails and feedback requests. Seguno only generates unique codes in Shopify when sending a real email for technical reasons. If an email includes a regular/generic discount code, the code will behave as expected for the test send.
Request feedback on an email
In the case that you want to include any notes with your test email, you may use the Request feedback action. Sending feedback requests gives you additional flexibility to input a specific recipient, include a note about the test email and set a specific reply-to email address. This is a great option for requesting approval of your email or for teams that working collaboratively on email.
