Edit a Content Strip Promotion

Learners only see up to three content strip promotions on the home page. There is no limit to the number of promotions you can create. You can configure to have up to five content strips display on the homepage. Learners see the most-recently created (or edited) strips they are entitled to view, based on their audience membership. You can also send email notifications as often as you like by editing the promotion.

To edit a content strip promotion

    From the Admin menu, select LEARNING > Content Promotions. The Content Promotions page displays with the CONTENT STRIPS tab open by default.
  1. Select the title of the promotion you wish to edit.
  2. Modify the promotion. You can change any of the details, content, and audiences.
  3. Optionally, notify your target audience about the promotion by ensuring the Send promotional email for this content promotion is selected. If you choose not to send an email, unselect this option and proceed by selectingUpdate Promotion. When you choose to send the email (option selected), you can then customize your email as follows:
    1. Select Next, Notify users.
    2. Select a date to send your email. By default, the date defaults to the start date of your promotion. At any time throughout the duration of the promotion, you can choose to update and resend an email.
    3. You can use the default text, but we recommend that you customize your email message by entering a Subject line, Pre-header text, Header text, and Custom text. The text you specify in these fields is meant to get the user to open the email and follow the links. To further personalize your email message, you can choose to use two variables within any of the text fields, {First_name} and {Organization_name}.

      Example using variables

      In this example, the learner receiving the welcome email is Kezia Adler, and her company is Akara.

      In the subject line field, this string:

      {First_name}, access to your Percipio account from {Organization_name} is nearly complete!

      Produces this subject line in the email for Kezia:

      Kezia, access to your Percipio account from Akara is nearly complete!

    4. Select Refresh Preview to see how your message will look to users. The email displays the first three items in the content strip.
    5. When the email is as you want it, select Update promotion and send email. The email sends at 6:00 pm UTC on the date specified to all users in the target audience(s) for that promotion.
  4. Select Update promotion.
Note: If your promotion is active, once you select Update Promotion, refresh your Percipio home page to see your changes.
