Inserting Baynote Recommendations Using The WYSIWYG Editor

About this task

Once you have the Baynote Recommendation fully configured, you are ready to insert a Baynote Recommendation into your message. The Insert Baynote Recommendation button allows you to insert a Baynote recommendation into your message.

Note: If you don't see the Baynote icon within the WYSIWYG editor, then you may need to do a force refresh of the editor. This can be done in most browsers by holding down the shift key and clicking the refresh button.

Procedure

To insert a Baynote recommendation in your message:

  1. Place your cursor in the body of the message where you would like a recommendation to be placed.
  2. Click on the Insert Baynote Recommendation button in the WYSIWYG editor.
  3. Select the layout you want to use for your recommendation.
    The Layout options allow you to change the format of the image that is generated by Baynote. We have provided several different formats for you to choose from. We suggest that you test your message after trying out different options to be sure you are pleased with the layout.
  4. Choose the size of the recommendation you wish to use.
    The Size attribute allows you to change between large and small-sized images. The specific dimensions vary by layout chosen.
  5. Specify the Index attribute for this recommendation.
    The Index attribute option allows you to select which recommendation number (or recommendation index as referred to by Baynote) you wish to receive. This is normally used when you wish to show several recommendations for one product. The first recommendation would have an index of 1, for the second recommendation you should set the index to 2, and so on.
  6. Specify the Attribute Filter for this recommendation.
    The Attribute Filter setting allows you to override the setting you set when configuring the Baynote Connection.
  7. Specify the Product URL for this recommendation.
    The Product URL indicates which product you want this recommendation to be based off of.
    Note: This is the URL for the product you want recommendations to be based off of, and needs to be the URL referenced in your Baynote catalog. If you have any doubts about which URL to use, you should check your Baynote account.
  8. Specify the Guide Name for this recommendation.
    The Guide Name setting allows you to override the setting you set when configuring the Baynote Connection.
  9. Click Insert.
