Formatting email data tags

    Is it possible to format data tags?
    For instance, my email confirmation uses [C-ALL REGISTRATION INFORMATION] among others.
    Can I match the text color of the data tag to the text of the email?

    I would like to see this function added as well - not only for data tags but all URL links. This also needs to be extended into the registration event as well. I have always wondered why we have a theme where we designate the link color and that link color doesn't flow into the form or emails.

    Hey Steven,

    I select the datatag and then choose the color I want like I would when updating the color of other text.  I also bold and italicize this way.

    You could try using the Registration Information widget in the build menu for FLEX emails, that will get you more options to customize there. Also, in admin --> account --> table data tag format you have some options there as well.

    Evan,

    Ahhh...Steven was referring to the text in the table.  Great tips!  Thanks for sharing.

    The only solution that I have found it what Evan said regarding Admin --> Account --> table data tag format, but keep in mind that this affects every event as it is an account wide setting.

    That is correct - it is an account wide setting. We hold several events throughout the year and they have their own branding. I don't understand why we have to change those links manually when the theme color should work in these cases. And when you have several links, it takes time to change all of those. I would love to see this fixed so we can work smarter and not harder. :)

    I have started using the Registration Information widget instead in emails, although it doesn't show profile questions or travel information. This has been a good solution for us as email is not secure and we don't want to risk including PII it in. The widget can for formatted using the settings.
