How to Create Client Area Templates

Display targeted custom messages

Make templates to show special messages automatically on different parts of the client area, like the footer, login page, or product page. There are two types of templates: messages for the whole site and messages aimed at specific things, like affiliates or a product,

Opening the templates page

This is where you create templates and map them to slots. A slot is a predefined space in the client area that can display template messages. To initiate the process, begin by accessing the Client area templates page, where you can generate templates and associate them with designated slots. A slot refers to a pre-defined area within the client interface capable of showcasing template messages. Here’s the steps:

  1. Sign in to your Admin account.
  2. Go to Settings located in the lower-left corner.
  3. Within the Branding and Customization section, select the Client area templates tile.

Upon opening a new page, you will find a display of various available slots, such as the footer, login page, and others. At this juncture, you have two choices:

  • Generate a new template and subsequently link it to a specific slot.
  • Develop a tailored template

Detailed explanations for each option are provided below.

Creating a new template

Opt for this choice if you wish to generate a new template and associate it with a designated slot. You can seamlessly accomplish both steps—creation and mapping—within a unified workflow. Follow these steps on the Client area templates page:

On the Client area templates page:

  2. Access the side panel and click on "Create new template."
