Templates
Message templates mean there is no longer a need to rework your push messages every single time; simply create a template for your Hologram or text message that can be reused over and over again. A super powerful way to automate your message requirements in conjunction with our powerful API and A/B testing tools.

Creating a HoloPush template

To create a message template we start by choosing the template we would like to create, either; HoloPush or HoloWeb
For this example we are going to choose 'HoloPush'
Once you have chosen HoloPush, you will be asked to choose Hologram or Text. We are going to choose Hologram for this example.
Start completing the details of the recording that you require from your chosen "creator"
Title - The title of the job.
Description - A short description of the job.
Delivery - This is the date that you want the 2mee notification to be delivered to your audience. This ensures that the recording is sent back to you to review in good time.
Campaign Tags - Campaign tags are added to every message. You can add as many tags as you like that link the job to certain campaigns, this will enable you to measure how successful your campaigns have been over a period of time.
Select Creator - This is the person who will be recording the message for you i.e Brand Manager, Company representative, Brand Ambassador. These can be added to your platform from the "manage user" area.
Creator Deadline - This is the date the recording should be sent back to you by.
Your "creator" will receive a notification in their 2mee recording app as well as an email to inform them that they have received a new request of a recording from you. When the recording has been done, you will receive a email informing you that the recording is ready to be reviewed.
You can update your creator deadline by sending a nudge, this will send an email to the creator and update the deadline to the next day
When the creator has completed the recording and submitted, the content manager will receive an email to inform them. They can then log into the platform and review each recording.
You can click on the Tile to view and hear each of the recordings.
Clicking on the tick confirms that you accept that particular take or you can reject all the recordings by clicking the 'reject submission' button.
If you reject the recordings, your creator will be sent a new notification asking them to record their holograms again
You can add comments while rejecting recordings to tell the creator why you rejected the recording.
Once you have accepted the recording you will need to select a frame to be shown on the notification preview for both iOS and Android. Use the frame slider to move between different frames before selecting the frame you think will be best to use.
