Convert a created campaign into a template

Learn to convert a campaign into a template for future campaigns.


Any sent or unsent campaigns that you've created can be copied to your template library for future use.

This is handy as it means you can easily modify preferred designs for continual re-use, avoiding having to repeatedly copy and then edit a specific campaign, or, even less preferably, start completely from scratch.

Before you start

Things you need to know:

Converting a campaign into a template 

  1. Go to Email > All email campaigns.

  2. Select either the Sent or Unsent tab as appropriate

  3. Using the checkboxes to the left, select the campaign you want to create the template from

  4. Expand the MORE ACTIONS drop-down menu, and select Save as template.


    The selected campaign appears as a copy in Email > Email campaigns > New campaign > Custom templates (which you'll be automatically taken to).

  5. To rename the template, go to Email > Email campaigns> Custom templates, mouse over and select the template you want to rename, expand the More actions drop-down menu, and select Rename template from the dropdown. A window will open in which to rename the template.

  6. Select Continue to confirm the name change.
