I am completely new to Salesforce, though I am an experienced software developer. I have a Salesforce Developer Edition account and am attempting to created a simple test scenario that includes AMPscript.
I have created a custom HTML email template and included some very simple AMPscript. Basically, "hello world" but no matter what I've tried, Salesforce does not interpret the AMPscript code at all, either in a preview, test email send, or anywhere else. The emails is sent, but the AMPscript code is plainly visible.
My question is, is this even supposed to work? Does the Developer Edition even support AMPscript? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
