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.


It looks like many people have responded to this thread saying that they would like this feature - is there any movement on making it happen? It would be SO helpful and SAVE so much time if we could either save blocks (as suggested by the OP), OR easily copy and paste a block from one email to another.

Dear Friends,

This has been on the back burner for CC for about a decade. No one should hold their breath.  However, here's what I do when I need to copy a lot from different blocks when simply copying a past email isn't enough.  Maybe you are all doing this already.  It is not a complete fix, but helps.  I go to each past email that has the blocks I need, then pull up its detail page and click the link to it.  Each time, it pops up in a fresh browser tab.  Then i have access to the text and text links (not buttons or images), and the color of the font remains too.  Seeing it in another browser window also helps me recreate the rest of the layout swiftly.


Hope this helps someone....

@SRVAssociations, Your workaround is what I have resorted to also, but when layouts are more complex it sure doesn't feel like it saves very much time. Better would be if from the detail page you could also access the editor to copy the elements. I'm not sure how much that would help anyway though. What you really want to be able to do is copy a block from one email to another, and especially be able to save those repeatedly used blocks in a library, whether it be the image library or a 2nd one.


Definitely agree though, let's not any of us hold our breath!


Thank you Annapurna for the suggestion to open the link to the email campaign from the Details Page!  I tried this and it did open in a new browser window.  Although not as efficient as having a saveable block library to insert from, this is indeed a huge shortcut/timesaver to re-create format/font/colors/graphics.  Thank you for sharing!
