Configuring the EXM UI representation

Last updated Monday, May 23, 2016 in Email Experience Manager for Developer, Administrator

According to the latest SPEAK guidelines, you should store all the user interface (UI) representation information of Sitecore modules, including EXM, in the Core database.

To access the Email Experience Manager folder, switch to the Core database and in the Content Editor, navigate to /sitecore/client/Applications/ECM.
