Savable blocks

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.


When managing email marketing for several locations, it becomes cumbersome to always have to re-enter contact info for each location. It would be nice if contact blocks could be saved with info for each location as a template that could be put into new emails quickly.


Thanks for posting this feedback. The idea of "saved content" is a great idea for the future!

I would like to have the ability to create custom blocks so that I don't have to manually change the details in the blocks each time I use them.

It would be helpful if we could have a library of sorts of blocks we continually use. Like a logo with contact information that you can throw into a campaign without having to leave the campaign, open another and copy the code.

Thanks for posting this feedback! Can you tell me more about what type of blocks you would like ot be able to save? Are you interested in saving the content or the block design?




I would like to be able to re-use blocks from past emails.  Maybe have a library I can save them to in order to plug them in to my current email. 


I would like to be able to create & save 'personal blocks'. For example, I drag & drop the default 'Content' block into an email. Add some text, links, change the font, color, etc.). Then I would like save it, file it to the left where the default blocks are located.

It would be nice if you could let me setup all of my social networks as you do my website and email. Do it once and it is done.

Like specific contact or header blocks that I've already designed. It seems like it would save users time if they had a library of their own customized blocks.


I often have the same block in multiple newsletters, either because two different audiences want the same info, or because it is an event that gets included a few times.


It would be great to have a tab or button, like the delete, move, copy buttons, that would let me copy a complete block to another newsletter draft instead of rebuilding it. This would also be helpful for creating multiple small variations for testing. 


It would save me so much time.
