The newsletter mock-up tool allows platform users to easily create mock-ups of their inventory, saving time and effort. The tool is available for any users with permission to view publisher details.
To use the tool, you must first add firstname.lastname@example.org to your newsletter distribution lists. If you do not add LiveSeeds to your distribution lists, you will be unable to access the mock-up tool.
*A Note on Google's September 2020 Chrome Update: This update extended the adoption of Chrome's "blocking mixed content" policy, making the blocking of "insecure http subresources on https (SSL secured) pages" a default setting. If you are not using an https secure CNAME, your ability to use the mock-up tool may be impacted.
If you are impacted, we recommend:
- Upgrading to an https SSL secure CNAME
- Confirming your newsletter content links are also secure (include https)
Alternatively, the Mozilla Firefox browser can be used to access the mock-up tool. However, please note that LiveIntent has no control over when Mozilla Firefox may adopt default settings similar to Google Chrome.
