Once you have built your Master Design Template and created a Data Feed, you will need to connect the elements of your master design to the Data Feed you created. Connecting an element in your design to a data feed will change the element into a Dynamic Design Element.


Prior to linking your Master design to the data feed, you will need to make sure the feed you created has been uploaded to Flexitive. For more information on how to do this, check out our article on Uploading a Datafeed.


In a given design, you can link one feed to the design for use in Automated Variation Creation. Dynamic Design Elements can either be created as Image Elements, or as Text Elements.



Creating Dynamic Design Images


To convert an image on your Master Design template to a Dynamic Design Image, select the element you'd like to convert to a dynamic image element, open the Image Settings panel on the left-hand side of the editor, and switch the 'Dynamic Design' toggle to ON.


 

After toggling 'Dynamic Design' on, you'll have access to the 'Feed' and 'Column' dropdowns. If you have not set a feed yet for the design, you will need to first select a 'Feed' for the design.


After setting the feed, choose the 'Column' of the design. After choosing the Column, the element will update with the image you've selected.




Creating Dynamic Design Text



To convert a text element on your Master Design template to Dynamic Design Text , select the text box you'd like to convert to a dynamic text element, open the Size & Position panel on the left-hand side of the editor, and switch the 'Dynamic Design' toggle to ON.



After toggling 'Dynamic Design' on, you'll have access to the 'Feed' and 'Column' dropdowns. If you have not set a feed yet for the design, you will need to first select a 'Feed' for the design.


After setting the feed, choose the 'Column' of the design. After choosing the Column, the element will update with the text you've selected.
