Opening the rendering options to your team grants you the ability to re-use an existing newsletter template for a new newsletter without help from our team.

This means you can change your newsletter immediately, and without extra costs. You can also create a new newsletter based on the rendering option values. Make sure to use all of the rendering options from the original newsletter, and just change the values indicated by your PM or any custom documentation provided by us for your site's newsletters.
