What are Projects?

Projects allow you to organize your work across different customers. They are kinda like folders but in a wider sense. In addition to regular email templates storage, you have an option to invite different participants to your particular projects for further collaboration, customize project settings to reduce time to create email templates. 

For example, if you're Agency and have a lot of customers, it’s more convenient to create separate projects for each customer as probably they have completely different brand styles and requirements for email templates. 

In the project's settings, you can customize the merge tags, special links, custom fonts for all email templates according to the needs of your customer. You are also able to invite your customer only to the project associated with him in a way, so he won’t see any other projects with their content.

Custom domain for emails

Custom domain for emails is an option available with AGENCY pricing plan. It’s especially helpful for companies that send email templates links to their clients for approval, so they do not want URL link to contain domain name related to stripo.email. For example:

If you want the links to your project’s email template preview to start with your domain address instead of viewstripo.email, just create the desired subdomain, specify it below and the basic configuration depending on the chosen option, as follows:

You can find more detailed description on this option activation in the settings of your project.

Option 1. Configuration directly on your Apache or Nginx web servers.

Create a config for the selected subdomain, for example: subdomain.domain.com

In the config file of this domain, specify:

for Apache:

ProxyPass / https://viewstripo.email/

ProxyPassReverse / https://viewstripo.email/

for Nginx:

set $auth $http_authorization;

location / {

proxy_set_header Host $host;

proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr;

proxy_set_header Authorization "$auth";

proxy_pass https://viewstripo.email/;

}

Option 2. Configuration using the CNAME record created with your DNS provider.

  • Go to your DNS provider’s website (e.g., GoDaddy or Cloudflare, etc.)

  • If you’re choosing a site for the first time, go with one that supports SSL.

  • Create a CNAME (‘canonical name’) record for your custom domain.

  • Set it at Stripo’s host domain: viewstripo.email

The applied configuration should look like this

Please be advised, once you save this record with your DNS provider, applying your customer subdomain for email template preview links instead of our viewstripo.email address may take up to 1 hour or more, it depends on your DNS provider.

You can find more information about configuring using a CNAME record created by your DNS provider by following this link.

Please note that other users will see your domain name in email template preview link but they are still hosted on Stripo servers.
