visitor submits his name, surname and email id and get promo code, then related promo code status will have been
updated as "Used" And Name, Surname, Email fields also display in the list of promo codes.
6) Email Templates: It is a template that visitors will get in the email after submitting promo form (Name, Surname,

only one template at a time, if you publish more than one email template then top most (old) email template will be
applied on the email.
7)In the Email Template form, the title is only to identify to the template will not be used in the email. Currently
