Exporting a Dyspatch Template to SendGrid

Use Dyspatch and SendGrid together to simplify your email creation lifecycle and deliver engaging email experiences at scale.

Build and Approve in Dyspatch

In Dyspatch, use the drag and drop email editor to create a beautiful, responsive, and engaging email template. Collaborate with your team to approve the template and publish it.

Once your template is published, you can move it into your SendGrid account by exporting it with our SendGrid integration, or you can download your template to upload it to SendGrid manually.

Exporting a Published Template with the SendGrid Integration

With a SendGrid integration added to Dyspatch after you click Download/Export you can now select Export to Integration and send your Dyspatch template to your SendGrid account.

Exporting any newly published draft will update the template in Sendgrid. Any changes to the name once published will also update the template in SendGrid.

Find your template in the Email Api > Dynamic Templates section of your SendGrid account.

Downloading Your Email Template

Once your email has been reviewed and approved by your team's stakeholder, you can now export your template using the Download/Export button.

You will need to select the HTML/Handlebars option to be compatible with SendGrid's templating system.

A zipped file will be downloaded onto your system with the HTML, plain text content, metadata, and localizations (if applicable).

Getting the HTML Source Code

Adding your email template into SendGrid requires you to copy and paste your email's HTML source code. To obtain this HTML, unzip the folder downloaded from Dyspatch and open the HTML file so you can copy its contents to add the email template to SendGrid.

Here's how to open the HTML file and copy the HTML using your web browser or the text editor that is pre-installed with Windows and MacOS.

Web Browser

Most web browsers will have a "View Page Source" option. The following screenshots will outline steps for Google Chrome.

Open the HTML file in a web browser, and right click the page to open a drop down menu. Select the View Page Source option.

Right click to dropdown menu options. Click the View Page Source option

You will be presented with the HTML source code and you can copy the HTML and add the content into SendGrid.

Text Editor


Notepad comes pre-installed with Windows operating systems, so you should be able to search for Notepad and open the HTML file. Once opened, you can copy the HTML and add the content into SendGrid.


TextEdit comes pre-installed with MacOS operating systems, so you should be able to search for TextEdit and open the HTML file. Note that you may need to adjust your preferences to allow HTML files to be opened in code format.

In the preferences settings, click the "Open and Save" tab. Make sure the "Display HTML files as HTML code instead of formatted text" is enabled.

Once you have the HTML, you can copy the HTML and add the content into SendGrid.

Adding the Template to SendGrid

Navigate to the Design Library section and select Create Email Design.

Select the Code Editor option and paste in the HTML source code into the Code Editor and save your email.

Copy and Paste your HTML into the code panel within the code editor

Once you have your email in SendGrid, you will want to add in your Subject Line, Plain Text content, and any other sending information you downloaded from Dyspatch.

Your email is now ready to go from SendGrid! You can now create a Dynamic Template to send your transactional emails or create a Single Send email to send your marketing emails with the "Your Design" option.
