There are two different methods to create a message in Evangelus. This article will look at the Composer tool.
The Composer is designed to send simple, quick messages that do not contain a lot of images or complex layouts. Very much like a standard email that you send to a co-worker or friend. You can do basic text formatting, insert images, links, and emojis. The composer is perfect for those times when you don’t need to send a more complex formatted message.
