  • OutSystems designed widgets to help you create lightweight emails that most email readers can open. When you edit an email, Service Studio shows the available Email widgets in the widgets toolbar.

    widgets for emails

    Use the Email widgets like you use the Screen widgets, with the following common differences designed to make the emails light and secure:

    • Email widgets don't have features that require handling plenty of data. For example, Table in Emails doesn't show the pagination section.
    • You can't use JavaScript and custom actions in Email widgets. Most email clients don't support JavaScript due to security concerns.
