Preparing Mergetags in Autopilot
Clerk.io needs a timestamp or unique ID from the email client to make sure Google doesn’t cache results.
This requires a couple of things to be setup in Autopilot, before it will work, which you can read below.
1. Login to Autopilot and go to Settings:
2. Choose Custom Fields:
3. Click the green plus in the right corner, to add a new Field. Name the field ClerkDate and choose Type = Date.
4. Go to your Journey and insert an Update Field action before ALL emails:
5. Click the action Update Field and choose the ClerkDate Field you added in step 3.
Update this to –today–
Now you are ready to insert the Clerk.io embedcode to your email template.
