Learn how to edit, style, and personalize the emails you send from Nutshell by formatting your emails using Markdown, uploading your company logo, and including an email signature.
Markdown, not unlike HTML, is a text format you can use to add structure and styling to the emails you send from Nutshell. Would you like to add styling to your email such as headers, italicized or bold text, lists, links and images into the emails you send from Nutshell? This article is for you.
Currently, Nutshell does not support HTML styling but supports an even simpler and more user-friendly text format called Markdown. Below, you will find an overview of some of the features of Markdown you can use when sending emails from inside Nutshell with examples of how this text will be formatted inside Nutshell.
Please note that to test this type of styling, you will need to send an email to a non-Nutshell user, such as a Person or Company.
Using a pound sign (#) before a word will make it a header:
Italics and bold text
For italicized text, use asterisks:
For bold text, use two asterisks:
1. item 1
2. item 2
3. item 3
4. item 4
* item 1
* item 2
* item 3
* item 4
You can add clickable links to an email by using the following syntax:
For images, you'll want to upload your logo or another image to a public image-hosting website such as postimage.io or imgbb.com to produce a clickable link that you will select with your cursor and copy and paste into the following format.
Can I use HTML?
Though we don't currently support HTML to style your emails or signature, you can use Markdown!
Why is my font changing?
You can use certain characters to change the font from typeface to monospace.
To change your font from typeface to monospace use three backticks at the beginning and end of a chunk of text.
Here is the first sentence.
``` Here's a sentence with a different font!
Why is the last line of my email a different size of text?
In Nutshell, when sending an email from an individual company, person, or lead page, the email signature section starts with two dashes
by default. You will not need to add these dashes to your signature in the Signature Setup page. Nutshell will automate this for you. In Markdown, if you add a dashed line immediately under a line of text, it will increase the size of that text. To avoid this, make sure you leave an extra space above your email signature section.
Create a signature to include on the emails you send from Nutshell
You can specify one signature that will be appended to the end of each email you send from Nutshell.
Interested in adding your company logo or a custom photo to your email signature? You will need to upload your image file to a photo hosting website (such as postimage.io, but any public photo hosting website will work.) You can then paste the following format into your email signature:
Be sure to replace the link above with a link to your own image.
- Click your user icon in the lower left
- Click Your Settings
- Click Email
- Click the Settings tab
- Add your signature in plain text or use Markdown to style your signature
- Click Save
Adding logos and photos in emails sent from Nutshell
Would you like to include your business logo or a custom image into the emails you send from Nutshell? Including your personal branding in emails you send from inside Nutshell has never been easier.
First, you'll want to upload your logo or another image to a public image-hosting website such as postimage.io or imgbb.com to produce a clickable link that you will select with your cursor and copy. Your next step will be to bring this link into Nutshell to show off your logo.
In addition to email signatures, you can also add formatting to your email templates using Markdown. All you'll need to do is take the link you copied from the public image-hosting website and paste it into the same Markdown format as discussed earlier in this article:
Remember that emails maintain Markdown formatting when kept inside Nutshell, or when sent from one Nutsheller to another. In order to test this formatting, you will want to be sure to send this email to someone who is not a user in Nutshell to admire your work.
