If you ever wanted to insert a PDF document, newsletter, flyer, etc. into the body of your email and not as an attachment, perform the following steps to do so.
- You need to save the PDF document (or whatever document it is) as a .jpeg image. You can do this by opening up the document, clicking "Save As" then as the file type, select .jpeg
- In order to insert an image into a ScoutForce email, the image needs to be online somewhere (It can be in a dropbox folder, Google Drive, in an email, etc.). It might be easiest to just email the picture to yourself. Once it's online, you can right click on the image and you'll have the option to "copy image URL". Click that so you copy the image.
- Now that you have the image URL copied, you can insert your document (which is now a .jpeg image) into the body of your email. You can CLICK HERE to watch a video on how to insert images into emails in ScoutForce. If you don't want to watch the video, here are the steps:
- In the body of the email, click the icon that looks like a tree
- In the Image URL field, PASTE the image URL that you copied earlier
- Push the Tab button twice to see a preview of the image below
- Push "Insert" (this will take you back into the email and you should be able to see the image in the body of the email wherever you cursor was)
- If you need to readjust the size of the image to make it larger or smaller, you can do so by clicking on the image, then clicking the Tree icon again. Click on the "Appearance" tab and in the first "dimension" field, make the number larger (to enlarge the image) or smaller (to shrink it). Push tab to automatically adjust the other dimension and keep it proportional. Play with the dimensions to make the image the size you want it.
