Creating a template


Creating a template

Is there a way to create your own custom template.

I have used various templates, and tried to fit them to what I need, but it would be great if there was a way to set up my own.





Hi, How do I create my own template?

Hi @GregMT

Great question! Are you looking to customize a template with a special layout and contents or are you looking to use a template you've built in HTML or XHTML?


Once you have picked a template you can re-arrange, add or remove and add blocks and content as needed to make it your own.


If you are famililar with code and have that to import you can do so as well by clicking Camaigns > Create > Send an EMail.



Hope this helps,

Hello @danielleg0. One way that you can create a custom template is to import your own HTML or XHTML code into our Advanced Editor. Here are a few links that provide more information:

Hello @Ken001


Thanks for posting. We are looking for feedback from our customers on what they would like to see/do in our Third Generation Editor (3GE), especially around editing the HTML code. Can you tell us what you would like to do in the HTML of your email?  There may be a solution for this within the editor or we can submit feedback to our teams if we do not have a workaround for you.
