Export to Elemental

Courier Elemental offers a powerful JSON based syntax to send notifications in lieu of using notification templates.

Courier's Designer Studio offers DnD functionalities to build notification templates where users can invoke a notification by just referencing the template ID.

Courier now offers interoperability between notification templates and Elemental, so users can now get the best of both worlds.

With the Export to Elemental feature, users can use the designer to build notification templates and export them as Elemental syntax whether it's for sending raw code templates, or for establishing a template review process.
