We often send similar content to different audiences in different campaigns. It would be so helpful to be able to copy sections of content from a past campaign to a new one (without losing formatting, links, etc.)
Thank you to JeffP08400 for your thoughtful comment on this 'situation'. As you can see from the rather long string of members commenting, this is a real problem in terms of time wasted recreating already designed blocks. I, like you, use a variety of 'backdoor' cut-and-paste methods as a work-around, but all of these need some redesign by me as much but not all of the formatting moves. As Pro-Art also commented, you can copy an entire campaign and then tweak it, which I do also utilize. However, there are always changes/updates being made between similar campaigns, as we are a membership organization and are always updating our event information, i.e. who is participating, updated deadlines, etc... The solution to me is simple -- return the HTML function for the blocks or get the programmers working on a block storage solution.
Is there a way to copy blocks from an old campaign into a new one? I can't seem to figure it out, but surely it must exist. I saw another post that suggested copying an old campaign and customizing from there, but that's not adequate. I need to combine elements from several campaigns. Thanks!
Never mind, I chatted with support and--despite finding many requests for this feature dating back years--it still doesn't exist. <<disappointed emoji>>
Seriously, how is not a thing? Having to recreate elements from scratch across multiple emails just to have consistency is ridiculous.
Constant Contact has so many issues. Not user friendly at all. Even the most basic ideas such as copy and pasting blocks between campaigns is not possible. It's 2020. Make your service more user friendly or we're moving to another email service.
Even though I understand why we cannot work in the HTML level with the newer templates, I miss being able to copy whole sections that would include links, pictures, formatting, etc. I can copy a section within a campaign, but not copy from one campaign to another (sigh).
