Message Templates

To save your message and reuse it in a separate campaign or test message, choose Save as template and provide a template name. Then, you can load the template for any message by choosing Load template and selecting it from a list of saved templates. Amazon Pinpoint populates your message with the template's content. Then, you can send the message as-is or customize as needed.

You can base a template on any supported message type, and you can use the same template for other message types. For example, you can write a push notification message, save it as a template, and use that template for an SMS message. Note that if you use a single template for multiple message types, Amazon Pinpoint loads the content differently for each type. For example, if you base a template on a push notification, and you load this template for an email message, the push notification title is used as the email subject. The correlations between message parts are as follows:
