Steps to create an Adestra newsletter

You need to create a new Profile within Adestra (you may well want to extend from the default Google Analytics profile so that you get Google Analytics tracking embedded as well)
Call this profile CANDDi
You will need to "Create new Fields" (click on the button).  Create "Contact Fields".  Add fields for First Name, Last Name and Email Address
THIS IS IMPORTANT:  Rename from the "default" Adestra names as follows:

Now when you add a link to your template or your mailer - use the CANDDi profile and Adestra will automatically merge in the correct fields

The end result should look something like:

http://www.canddi.com?ce=tim@canddi.com&cfn=Tim&cln=Langley 

Adestra should now automatically introduce the correct parameters when you send the email.  We strongly recommend that you test this before using it for your live campaigns.

Now when the recipient clicks through this link then they will be taken to your website and identified by CANDDi
