Full width Blasts will format your Blast to look as if it was sent in Gmail or Outlook. This means your Blast's text, images, and signature will span the full width of the email instead of being placed in the center of it.
Please Note: The full width Blast feature is only available for Internal Organizations.
To toggle full width Blasts on/off for a specific Blast, open Blast Editor and follow the steps below:
Click the three vertical dots to the right of Exit.
Click Email Settings.
Toggle Full Width Email on/off.
Click Save Changes.
When toggled ON, you can use the Text, Image, and Signature Elements to create your Blast that will send as a full width email to your Target Audience.
When creating a full width Blast, you will only be able to select from the following three Elements:
When creating your full width Blast, Elements will function the same as all other Elements you've used in the Blast Editor before, EXCEPT there are two caveats:
You cannot place multiple Elements in the same row. In full width Blasts, you can only have one Element per row since each Element will be using the full width of the email.
You cannot adjust the width of your image inside the Blast Editor under the Layout tab of the Image Element. Since the image will keep its size on both desktop and mobile, it's important that you send yourself multiple samples and view them on BOTH platforms to ensure the image is the correct size.
Pro Cerklers Tip: If you want left align your image, click on the image > click Layout on the right side of your screen > click the left align button.
The examples below show the format differences between a full width Blast and a regular Blast when viewed inside your inbox:

Please Note: When creating a full width Blast, the preview doesn't represent what will be seen in your Audience's inbox. For that reason, we highly recommend you send samples before sending out your Blast!
