Quickstart for Marketing Cloud

The Quickstart for Marketing Cloud module provides displays of News content from the website in a way that best works with email newsletters created in Marketing Cloud.

These displays are stripped of all HTML except for what is needed in the email newsletter. They are dynamically created so news items can be updated as needed and pulled into Marketing Cloud at the time of email send.
