  • Create new Campaign and set the type as either Email or Newsletter.
  • Select one or more target lists in Target Lists field.
  • Optionally select one or more target lists in the Excluding Target Lists if you have specific targets you wish to omit from receiving an email
  • After the Campaign record is created, create a Mass Email record for the campaign:
    • Click + icon on Mass Email panel.
    • Specify Date Start - when emails should be sent, and select the appropriate Email Template.
    • Change the Status on the Mass Email to Pending to start sending the mass emails.

Note: The Status field on the Campaign does not control any application processing. Set it to a value that represents its current state. Only the Status field on the Mass Email controls application processing.

Once the Status on the Mass Email is set to Pending, emails will start to process. This is run by a background process which runs one an hour. Usually set to 15 minutes past the hour.

Emails are sent in batches. System Administrators can change the batch size in the Outbound Email Settings.

By default the system will append opt-out to all sent emails. But you can use custom one in your Email Template.


<a href="{optOutUrl}">Unsubscribe from the mailing list.</a>

Administrator can disable mandatory opt-out link being added by system at Administration > Outbound Emails.


Tracking URL

If you want to know that your recipient opened the link from your email, you need to create one or more Tracking URLs.

An email tracking URL, also known as an email tracking link or a campaign tracking link, is a specially crafted web address that allows you to track the performance and engagement of your email campaigns. When you include a tracking URL in your email, you can monitor how recipients interact with your message, such as whether they open the email, click on specific links, or take desired actions on your website.

A tracking URL looks like the following: {trackingUrl:95f2c87b09a430a78}. You need to insert this into your email template as a link and specify a Name and URL as per the following:

<a href="{trackingUrl:55f2c87b09a220a78}">Try our demo</a>

Mythradon simplifies the process of tracking URLs by automatically converting them into clickable links. When recipients click on these links, the system records the interaction within Mythradon, associating it with the respective recipient and campaign. After the click, the user will be seamlessly redirected to the landing page specified in the tracking URL record. This seamless integration allows you to effortlessly capture and analyse recipient engagement while ensuring a smooth browsing experience for your users.
