Email Series are a group of emails that are all based around the same topic, such as a specific product. Instead of individually selecting each email from your content library, your channel partners can easily download and then execute related emails from one location using an Email Series. All emails in a grouped series share a Mailing list, but each email can be scheduled to go out at a specified time and date. Once you have created and made an email available for partners, they are able to copy the email series into their account as a Ready Made Email Series.
