Once you have selected your choices, Yapla integrates all the corresponding content and you can choose which events to display specifically from the available events:
- 1 only for featured event ;

Finally, the button allows you to have a preview of the final result.
Add a call-to-action button
Your events are now automatically displayed in the newsletter, in order to allow your readers to go to the event on your website and sign up, it is important to create an action button.
⚠️‼️ It is important to note that the action button directs to a single event page, so you need to have an event page on Yapla with the mosaic view.‼️⚠️
Here are the steps to create the action button under your events in the newsletter:
- Use your event page (mosaic view) or create an Event page with all your events. You can hide this page by checking : "Do not display this page in the menu of your website"
To learn more about this point, please consult the following article: Event Section
- Go to your event page on your website and click on the detail button of one of your events.
In this example, we will use this page: https://demo.s1.yapla.com/en/newsletters-event
- Copy the url of the detail page of your event: https://demo.s1.yapla.com/en/newsletters-event/detail/the-2021-montreal-golf-bicycle-classic/10585
- Paste the url of the detail page of your event in : Event Application > Settings > Settings
Then in "Settings", paste the URL in the "external link management" field:
- Replace in the URL link the ID of your event by the keywords as indicated below:
- Replace /FR/ or /EN/ by : /__LANG__/
- Replace /the-2021-montreal-golf-bicycle-classic/10585 with //__ID__
Replace with: https://demo.s1.yapla.com/_LANG_/newsletters-event/detail//__ID__
- Go back to your newsletter and save your event module again and the buttons will appear.
