Accompanying text

In this field you can customise the text that is sent alongside a handout.

Click in the box and change the text the way you like it.

The text within the square brackets (i.e. [client.name] ) is automatically filled in based on the client name that the account manager (presenter) enters when the Handout is created on the iPad or tablet.

Therefore, you should not change that part of the text.

Click “Done” to save the settings and don’t forget to publish!
