  1. Embedding images straight into distribution emails is a huge improvement! Great job. If I may, could I ask how to set up that option? I’ve installed the new agent but I don’t see the ability to embed images in the email either in the web portal (I still have the choices Image and the various PDF options) or on the agent screen anywhere.

    Thank you!

    1. Hello SA_NYC, and thank you for the kind words.

      In order to embed images in your email, you must first select Image as the output format. Then, when writing the Email Message, click the down arrow next to the pound (#) sign and either select All Report Images (to insert a token that will embed your entire playlist images embedded in a row) or One Report Image (to embed just one image from your playlist). This last option will insert the token #REPORT_IMAGE_X# in your email body. All you need to do is replace the X with the image number you wish, starting from 1.
      If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

      Best regards,
      The DevScope team
