Release notes (7/10/15): Template and Campaign Builder in beta

  • Announcement
  • Updated 3 years ago
Our Product Team has released into beta a helpful addition for agency/tiered accounts that lets them more easily create content for their sub-accounts. Read on to learn more about this and other newness!

+ New and improved
  • Template Builder and Campaign Builder are two beta features for agency clients. (Let me know below if you don't have access in your agency account and would like to.) Template Builder lets you easily customize a template gallery template's components -- like header, background colors or footer -- using the controls from the drag & drop editor and then share that framework with the sub-accounts of your choice to build an email with. Campaign Builder lets you create a full mailing using the drag & drop editor, built upon the templates you're familiar with, and share it with the sub-accounts of your choice. (Think of a campaign or mailing as the content you're placing on top your template, like when you write atop stationery. The template you create with Template Builder is placed in the My Templates section of your sub-account's Template Gallery, and the campaign or mailing you create with Campaign Builder appears in a Shared tab of your sub-account's Campaigns page.)
+ Bug fix
  • We fixed a bug where Emma account sessions were expiring too quickly. A user might have been logged in briefly and then logged out after only a few moments of activity. This took awhile to fix because there weren't firm steps to take to duplicate it. I know how frustrating that was if you experienced it -- we were randomly running into it and frustrated by it, too! -- and a million thanks to you for your shared details and patience.

Hi Rachel,

I have Campaign Builder, but once I open up a new email from this template from a sub-account, the email opens up as a copy with a "shared" icon. This copy is in my unsent emails, but I am unable to delete it. Every time I open the email up, it spawns another copy with the same "shared" icon.

I have now turned off "Campaign Sharing" but cannot delete these emails.

Thanks for your help.

Hi there -- Thanks for bringing this to our attention! Our developers are already working on a fix for this issue you're running into. In the meantime, you can use the check box to the left of those mailings to select the ones you'd like to delete and then the arrow in the upper right corner to "delete selected".

Let me know if that doesn't do the trick! I'll be sure to let you know when this fix is in place.
