It would be nice if we could create blocks that we could save into a library of sorts. All of our campaigns use similar contact blocks but very different headers. It would be nice to not have to recreate the block from scratch, or to exit the campaign, find the other campaign, copy the code, then head back to the original campaign.

Updating the status of this request to Under Consideration to support our new community idea statuses to add better insight into your feedback.
Thank you for all of your feedback on this topic; I know this request has been around for many years. This is something we would love to be able to implement. We’ve had some plans in the past that have been reprioritized. The current thought is that we hope we will be able to focus on this at some point in the future, and some of the ideas floated around have been really cool! That being said, I don’t have any sort of estimated time that it might be accomplished. We do have a potential new feature coming this quarter that may help. We will keep this thread updated.
Hi everyone! We apologize this tool is not yet available. There are many factors that are used to decide what is added to or updated in our product which can cause us to sometimes not have a timeline for when a feature will be available. Though we are still collecting feedback through this thread. In fact the more requests we receive the higher a priority it can be given with our Product Team. I did also want to make you aware we have read your feedback, as all feedback is read by Constant Contact employees. I apologize while we may not respond to every comment – it is acknowledged. So thank you for submitting your feedback on our templates. We are always open to ways we can better our user’s experience! In fact, here is a section of our Community that helps explain what we do with our customer’s feedback.
It is pretty clear that nothing is going to change on this. Software is supposed to make your life easier, and while it may be that way for some of the users for Constant Contact, it certainly is not for me. Updates should add, not take away functionality, and that is what we have been dealing with for so long. Pretty ridiculous at this point.
+1 please add this feature. It is one of the most frustrating things about using this platform.
I've been asking for this function for 5 years now. I send out many different campaigns as we have five business locations and different target markets. There are blocks that are constant in each campaign and I have to recreate them each time. It seems like a very simple function that would save many people the time and effort to continuously recreate the same blocks over and over. Please add this as a function. Help your customers save time. We've been with CC for many years but it may be time to look for other alternative solutions that are more user-friendly and efficient.
So I think if Constant Contact just had the basic functionality to be able copy and paste multiple blocks/objects and then also to be able to save those copied blocks to reuse in existing email campaign or new ones. Like have another tab to the left that has my Blocks/Objects and you can drag and drop just like a regular block. That would be awesome!
While the campaign WYSWIG editor is nice, there's some room for improvement. One major piece that would make e-mails that much better is adding the ability for opacity within the style creator. In addition a section creator would be great in order to easily segment the page up and keep consistent formatting. A great example of a WYSWIG editor that has robust capabilities is the Cvent WYSWIG. More design capabilities would really make this product so much better.
Thank you for your consideration!
I have had some issues with the email creation tool. If I misspell a word and right click to fix it, the format for the entire block of content disappears. This is very frustrating when trying to make a quick fix.
In Legacy I could open any campaign, copy a block's HTML and paste it into a new campaign. Why has this function been removed?? Please restore it ASAP.
A suggestion from a fellow user: (if the restoring the html button can't work, for whatever reason): A SIMPLE SOLUTION WOULD BE TO ALLOW US TO HAVE OUR OWN LIBRARY OF BLOCKS THAT MAINTAIN FUNCTIONALITY AND DESIGN, SIMILAR TO OUR OWN LIBRARY OF IMAGES OR DOCUMENTS.
PS. I'm already shopping for a new program, can't wait much longer.
If only I could easily copy and paste or drag and drop from one email to another, instead I have to build the template then copy and paste in individual information. I'd love to be able to "select all" "copy" "paste" in order to move from my old template to a new one for instance.
Yes, I would like to have the ability to create a signature block at the bottom of an email then save that block to use in other emails from other employees and just add my signature block and sent to my clients.
