Frequently Asked Questions

Many institutions find themselves facing similar challenges and need to communicate with their users (instructors and students) to implement something new, or increase usage of a certain tool inside their LMS, for example. We anticipate such scenarios and create EesySoft campaign templates surrounding a wide range of topics. These campaign templates consist of contextualized messages, ensuring that users receive on-demand assistance, accompanied by relevant help articles and videos, to help them achieve their goals. The content is delivered to you in a straight-forward template format. You can preview all of the content to decide if it meets your needs and import it with the click of a button. You are free to customize the campaign by adding, editing, or deleting content that is not applicable to your institution.

At EesySoft, we have a team dedicated to creating content, which includes designing and delivering Eesysoft Campaign templates. The content team consists of experts in educational technology and instructional design. They carefully consider the prior knowledge of the users, their time constraints and motivation, so that campaigns provide useful information in the right format to successfully support them to change their behavior.

If you have an idea for an EesySoft campaign template that other institutions could benefit from you can submit it in the Universe. The content team regularly checks these, and they often provide inspiration to create campaign templates that benefit a wide range of customers. Alternatively, you can reach out to your Customer Success Manager.

Using a campaign template as a draft means cloning the campaign template to your list of campaigns – don‚Äôt worry, the campaign does not automatically start after after you click “use as draft”. You are always in control!

After you have clicked “use as draft” , it is visible in your list of campaigns. This means you can review it and if necessary, tailor it to meet the needs of your institution. Only after assigning a target audience and pressing the Start Campaign button, the campaign will be activated and its content will be shown to your specified target audience. Remember that you can stop the campaign at any time by simply clicking on the Stop Campaign button.
