Create a new manager root

Last updated Wednesday, December 13, 2017 in Email Experience Manager for Administrator

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

The component 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 /templates/Branches/System/Email/Manager Root. If necessary, modify the default item name.

    cms_InsertFromTemplateDialog

  3. Click Insert.
  4. Open the new manager root item and on the Content tab, configure the manager root settings.

    cms_NewManagerRoot

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