What is AMPScript.io, and How to Use It?

AMPScript is a powerful scripting language used in Salesforce Marketing Cloud (SFMC).

It can be used to create dynamic and personalized content in emails, landing pages, SMS and other digital channels.

It allows you to add logic, data, and interactivity to your content and customize your messages based on customer attributes, behaviours, and preferences.

AMPScript.io is a web-based AMPScript editor that allows you to write and debug AMPScript code directly in your web browser.

The application is still in development but has worked flawlessly over the last few months I have used it.

How to Use AMPScript.io

  1. Open your web browser and go to the AMPScript.io website.

  2. Enter your AMPScript code in the editor window.
    You can add comments, insert functions, variables, and personalization strings.

  3. The Analytics pane will instantly validate your code, provide hints about the function and variables used, and highlight any warning within your code.
