Hey, it’s Michael from ArchSmarter.
So what do you think? Like the new look for TT5? I’m still tweaking a few things as I put the new layout through its paces. Like all software, there are limitations to what you can modify in the email template. And like all software, you often don’t realize these limitations until you actually use in for real. I’m a big proponent of learning in public so there will likely be some adjustments made to the format as I learn more about using the email template. Anyways, I’d love to hear your feedback. Hit reply and let me know what you think.
Alright, here are five things to check out this week.
