Use the Main Menu on the left to expand the Create menu and click Template.
The subsequent screen lists the different Templates that can be created in MainBrainer. Select the Email Trigger Template option (as highlighted in the screenshot below).
The subsequent page lists all the Email Trigger Templates created so far. You can edit a previously saved Template by using the Edit button displayed against each listing, or you can create a new Template from scratch by using the Create New Template button (as highlighted in the screenshot below).
Type in a relevant Template name and description, and click Continue. The Template name and description are only for your reference purpose. It is not visible to your customers in any way. Feel free to make it as descriptive as you want, as it would make Template identification easier in the future.
If you choose not to enter a Template name, the platform assigns a default name to the Template with the following structure:
<Email Trigger Template Creation date Creation time>
For example: Email Trigger Template 30.07.2021 10:00:00
