One of the foundations of Showpad is the ability to share content with customers and prospects. Any content shared via Showpad is presented in the Shared Content Viewer: a visually attractive and engaging web page that your admin can design and customize to match your corporate branding or any specific branding for the different verticals you are active in. Let's explain what a prospect sees when opening your Share.
Note: When you send an e-mail with shared content, the viewer will show all of the content sent over. For instance, if a collection is shared along with a separate link, the whole bundle will be shown together within the content viewer. To make them appear separately, send two e-mails.
