Can I Use HTML?

Yes! If you are looking to use your own custom HTML, you've come to the right place. There are quite a few areas of the site you're able to use HTML to add some style in your messaging to participants. 

WHICH TAGS CAN I USE?
The basics. This is not an exhaustive list, but in general: <b>, <i>, <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <br>, <p>, <img>, <a>, <font>, and <span> will work. If you prefer to use inline styles, those work as well. 

If you don't know what any of this means, you may want to check out this article that covers using our rich text editor.
 
WHICH TAGS SHOULD I AVOID?
Some tags will create validation errors if you attempt to use them. You'll want to avoid using <body>, <div>, <embed>, <frame>, <frameset>, <head>, <html>, <iframe>, <layer>, <link>, <meta>, <object>, <script>, <table>, <tbody>, <td>, <thead>, and <tr>.

WHERE CAN I USE HTML?

Again, use the HTML button in the toolbar to insert your HTML into the notification you're drafting.

I DON'T WANT TO USE HTML - JUST MAKE MY EMAILS PRETTY
That's okay! You can use the rich text editor for messages sent via the email manager or through a notification. Learn about this feature here! 

HINT: If you aren't familiar with HTML and you want to use HTML in an area of the site that doesn't offer a rich text editor, you can use the Email Manager to do the heavy lifting. Just draft the email the way you like in the Email Manager (don't send it out, just make a draft). Once it looks the way you like, click the Source button. Copy the code you see there into the area of the site you'd like to be using HTML. All set!
