How to sync an email from Litmus Builder to Campaign Monitor
Once you've created your ESP connection, from the “Builder” tab in your email project, choose “Export” and “Sync to ESP.” Select Campaign Monitor and you'll see the option to sync to Campaigns or Templates. Select which one you want and then hit the Sync button. Once the sync is set up, you'll see a link directly to your synced email in Campaign Monitor. After that, you only need to save your work in your Builder project and it will automatically update in the synced version in Campaign Monitor.
Importing an email for final review and pre-send testing
