How can I preview my recurring automations?

If you have finalized your template, and you would like to test your automation, please refer to the steps in this article.

From your automations page, you can send yourself and others test emails of a recurring newsletter.  It will show what that newsletter would look like if you were to send it immediately, and this way, you can easily check how your email looks like without waiting for automation to actually run.

Get Started

  1. Go to the Automations tab and find the recurring automation that you want to test.
  2. Either navigating into that automation or by engaging the paper airplane right in the list, enter up to five emails, and tap the "Send test". You'll see a confirmation message.

  3. Check your inbox, and to make it easy to find, we add "Automation Test" to the subject.
  4. If you don't want to do anything, you're all set.
  5. If you want to make changes, there's a button at the top of the preview email, which will take you straight to the composer where you can make changes to the template.


  1. You can get a point-in-time look at your email content with the current items from your feed.
  2. You can verify that your dynamic content is working as expected and that there are no errors or formatting issues.
  3. You can improve your email design and content based on the feedback from the test email.
