After you uploaded the package of the extension to your store go to Modules page and click ‘Install’ button in the corresponding row (figure 1)
Figure 1. Email Manager Installation
After the extension will be successfully installed click on ‘Edit’ button to go to the extension’s admin area (figure 2)
Figure 2. Extension management
Sometimes apart from the extension itself, there are several submodules in Modules page (figure 3). It’s because the extension creates subscription widgets ( but not pop-up widgets) as OpenCart modules so you can embed them into pages using OpenCart Layout Management System

First thing to do when you are in extension’s admin area is to enable the extension (figure 4)

Then you need to select a profile which fits you the most (figure 5).
Figure 5. Profile selection
Each profile can be customized. For example to add logo image scroll the page down to section sub-tabs and select ‘Header’ sub-tab (figure 6)
Figure 6. Profile sub-tabs
Then double-click on ‘Logo’ control (one click will switch between embedded/attached image modes) and from pop-up file browser select a needed image. Before that, you may need to upload logo image using the same file browser (figure 7).

When you finish editing a profile you need to save changes. To do it click ‘Save’ button on profile management section (figure 8)
Figure 8. Save profile
To get how the profile will look like with different contents open preview window (click on the blue tag at the right side of the page or scroll down the page if you choose to embed preview window) and from drop-down select different templates (figure 9)

If you need to change contents of some template go to ‘Content’ tab and from ‘Load template’ drop-down select needed template (figure 10)
Figure 10. Template selection
Scroll down the page to the language tabs (figure 11). Here you can change subject or content for each system language. You can use so-called ‘shortcodes’ to customize a template. During an email rendering, shortcodes will be substituted by corresponding content. The list of all the available shortcodes can be found under ‘Shortcodes list ‘ tab
Figure 11. Content modification
To save made changes click on ‘Save’ button in ‘Manage template’ section (figure 12)

The last thing to be done is to map (associate) templates with the selected earlier profile. Though you can map each template to each profile separately, moreover you can map one template to different profiles depending on language let’s map all the templates to one profile (let it be ‘Concise’). We will do it on highest possible mapping level – store level – so for all the templates (emails) sent from that store the ‘Concise’ profile will be applied. To do it go to ‘Configuration’ tab and map each store to ‘Concise’ profile (figure 13)
Figure 13. Mapping templates to a profile
In order to check current mapping open any tab except for ‘Profile’ tab and refresh the preview window. Change a template to see its mapping. When you open ‘Profile’ tab and refresh preview window you will see profile currently selected on that tab but not real system mapping.
Now every system email sent from your store will be decorated accordingly.
