Can i insert the current date and time into my newsletter?

Adding small details can really affect the way your recipients interact with your newsletter-for the better of course! One of the simplest ways to make your campaign feel more engaging is to include the current date and time within it, which is easily done using personalization tags!

Let's take a closer look!


1. Create a Text Element and place it exactly where you want the tag to appear.
