Add custom widgets to message templates


In addition to the standard MVC widgets that you use when working with email campaign templates, you can add new custom MVC widgets or extend the built-in content widgets based on MVC.
For more information about developing MVC widgets, see Create and register widgets and Modify built-in widgets.
