On the Visual/Content step of the Campaign Wizard you will have three options available for using templates: default system templates, your own, and importing your own content on the spot.
The Default tab allows you to view all of those offered by default in the system. These include both the old system templates and the new templates, fully compatible with the new campaign builder.
The new editor templates are available as a guide. You can build your campaign based on the features on each template, or if you prefer, start with a basic layout.
The new campaign builder allows you to add and remove sections from your template with ease, set a color scheme, edit plain-text and advanced HTML modes, and test your campaign all from the save view.
- To add a section to your template, click on the thumbnail of the appropriate section. This will automatically add it to the bottom of the template.
- To reposition or remove a section from your template, hover over the section to prompt the positioning menu. To move a section up or down within the template, simply click the arrows until you reach the desired spot. To remove the section, click on the trash bin icon.
- To edit a section, hover over the area to make the edit button appear. Clicking on it will display the edit menu on the left-hand side. Remember to save your changes!
If you wish to have both HTML and plain-text versions emailed separately, enable the checkbox, otherwise they will be sent as a merged email.
Auto-save is now enabled on all mailings edited in with the new editor. Read more on auto-save and browsing previous versions.
Now it's time to Preview and Schedule your campaign!
