Is there a trick to keeping an mail template at the very top of the email marketing list?

Hi,

 

I'm curious to find out if anyone's found a trick to keeping the a template they use regularlly at the very top of their email marketing list. For example - you may have a dozen email campaings listed, but you want one saved as MAIN TEMPLATE to be up at the very top of the list so you don't have to dig for it everytime you want to copy the template.

 

I had heard that 2 astiresks before the title of the template would potentially keep the email at the top of the list, but that hasn't seemed to work.

 

Thanks much,

Josh

Hey Josh,

 

One of the weaknesses of the current product is its ability to sort and organize.  It's on the recurring list of requests for improvement.  I would say this is on the top 5 of requested improvements I've seen over the years.  It seems so simple and necessary  that its baffling as to why it hasn't been addressed. 

 

Because the date is the key column sorted  there isn't a good way to make anything sticky.  A  folder organizer much like a regular email account would certainly do the trick. 

 

The best you can do is to keep your regular templates marked as DRAFT and display them from the Existing Email panel.  Keeping the number of DRAFTS to a minimum would make it a bit easier to locate them.
