Create a new manager root

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

A manager root contains all the settings that control how users work with the Email Experience Manager module.

The module creates a manager root when you configure the EXM default settings for the first time after installation. If you need more than one manager root, for example, in a multisite environment, you can create a manager root manually.

To create a new manager root:

  1. In the content tree, right-click the Content item, click Insert, and then click Insert from Template.

  2. In the Insert from Template dialog box, select the Manager Root template at /sitecore/templates/Branches/Email Campaign/Manager Root. If necessary, modify the default item name. Click Insert.

    Now you can use the newly created manager root in your solution.
