Create your personalized file

How do I create a personalized file?1

Before you can personalise your file, you must first create a document. For this purpose, you set up a Word file in which you insert your texts, images, logos, etc.

In order to be able to personalize this document through our letter shop, you now need to add the correct placeholders, which are automatically filled with the participant's personal information when the file is downloaded and dispatched. These placeholders can be used, for example, to design an address field, insert the salutation or generate a QR code.

If desired, tables can be used in the files to bring structure to the document. It's also possible to hide table rows so that they are not displayed in the final document.

Please note:

Only the basic fonts, such as Arial, should be used to create the Word file. The personalized files cannot reproduce every font, otherwise it will be automatically adjusted to a basic font in the background.

How to use the file

As soon as you have prepared your file, you can add it to your event. 

To do this, navigate to your contacts, then select the "Personalized files" tab and click on the "+" icon on the right hand side.

Please note:

In case your event is multilingual, you can save the files in different languages via the language switcher in the top right hand corner. As soon as you download or send the file to your contacts, they will automatically receive the file in the language stored in the contact.

Download and dispatch

Download

To download your personalized file, navigate to your contacts and select the participants you want to download by selecting the top checkbox. After selecting your contacts, click on the download button in the top right hand corner and select "Personalized files". 

Please note:

Unfortunately, it is not possible to select individual contacts in the list via different pages. However, you have the option of using the filter function ("Show filter") and creating your file only for the registered contacts.

Please note:

The file name and the recipient are filled in automatically by the system - by default, the email address with which you log in to evenito is stored as the recipient. Of course, you can also change both manually.

 

By clicking the "Render" button you confirm the sending of the personalized files to the recipient's email address. The download is prepared with a time delay and the duration of the sending depends on the size and number of the selected files and contacts.

The link to download the files in the e-mail is valid for 7 days from the time of receipt. After this time you will not be able to access the files behind the link and you will have to start a new export.

You also have the option of downloading the personalized file for a single contact. To do this, open the relevant contact by hovering over the contact with the cursor and clicking on the edit pencil on the right hand side. Then click on the download button at the top right and select the file to trigger the download.

Dispatch

To send the file to your participants via message, you must first create a message in which you want to send out your file.

Insert a button in the message for the link to the file and store the placeholder of the file in the URL.

In the placeholder manager, under the "Files" section, you'll find the corresponding placeholders for the file. There are two different options available. The first placeholder (here, for example, "Test File") pertains to the personalized file of the main contact. The second placeholder (+ Companions) automatically includes both files, meaning that the personalized files for both contacts (main contact + companion) are included.

After you have completed your message, you can now send your message to the contacts you have selected.

If multiple files need to be rendered, a notification will appear indicating that the document is being prepared. The page will then need to be refreshed in order to access the complete document. After refreshing, the document will be available immediately.

Please note that the document will only be available for 7 days after the message is sent. If the recipient does not download the file within this timeframe, the link will expire and the message will need to be resent.
