All the below templates are available to you in your Poppulo account. When you create a newsletter, you can browse templates in your 'Template Library'. The templates have been designed in line with the Imperial brand and are available in a variety of colour themes. 

For all templates, it is best to keep in place the default header with the Imperial logo in the top left. This makes it clear that your newsletter is an official College communication.

If you would like further guidance on using templates, please contact Elizabeth Nixon, Internal Communications Manager, or Martha Nahar, Internal Communications Officer.

Tips for using the two column newsletter template

  • Please note that when you untick the ‘show title’ box and choose for a title not to be displayed, it will not appear in the ‘In this issue’ section

Unticking the 'show title' box

  • In this template, the anchoring system is slightly different. Any links within the ‘In this issue’ content type direct you to view the article on a microsite, rather than leading you down the page. They may also link directly to a URL you have inserted
  • When viewing the microsite, you may notice that the ‘In this issue’ content type remains on the left

Simple newsletter

  • Recommended template for briefings or staff announcements when a more serious tone is suitable
  • Available in only 1 colour theme and not flexible for customisation
  • Designed to use most Poppulo "drag and drop components", but there are restrictions on the use of images
  • In this template, ensure all text formatting is in line with the design template by using the ‘remove formatting’ button
  • No image will appear in the articles even though the template calls it 'one column articles A - Image Left'
