We now support the ability to add a custom font to your RetentionEngine cancel experience. This feature allows you to add any URL based font, although we recommend using Google Fonts.


How to add Custom Font

Step One

Navigate to the Style Editor tab from the RetentionEngine dashboard. Under the "Experience Font" section, we've added a button to "Add Custom Font."

Group 314

Step Two

After selecting "Add Custom Font," you'll see a window pop up asking for the Font URL and Font Family.

Font URL Example

https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Nunito:wght@200&display=swap

Font Family Example

'Nunito', sans-serif;
Note the formatting of these fields!

When copying the URL and Font Family from Google Fonts, you will need to remove excess text to match the formatting above, otherwise the custom font will not be added correctly.

Step Three

After saving the Font URL and Font Family, you can check your font was applied correctly by using the "Preview Experience" button, or viewing the "Custom CSS Editor" in the Style Editor Tab).

If you view the Custom CSS Editor, you'll notice the CSS snippet for your custom font has been added in the Custom CSS text area. If you're also adding Custom CSS, make you don't delete it! :)
