Well...I was able to find the "Save As Template" after clicking the Dropdown next to the Campaign and choosing Details... then a different dropdown at the top of the page next to the Campaign title. Just surprised it disappeared from the main campaign page.
Have you been able to find or access any of your saved templates? All I can access are the pre-loaded ones.
I do apologize for the inconvenience but within the new interface you no longer have the option to save a campaign as a template. I will be sure to relay this feedback to our engineering team as a feature request. As a work around you have the option to create a favorites folder in which you can place the campaigns that you would like to re-use as an email template. Below I have listed some instruction on how to create a folder. I hope this is helpful to you and please let us know if you have any further questions.
Folders can hold as many campaigns as you want, but to keep them from getting too full, you can create up to 2 additional levels of sub-folders in each top-level folder.
This is absolutely RIDICULOUS!! I NEED to be able to access my previously SAVED TEMPLATES!! Why on earth have you removed
this VERY BASIC & USEFUL feature. Yes, as you posted there is a workaround, but it is cumbersome and time consuming. And, quite
frankly, my time is valuable. This needs to be addressed.....unless you want to lose more customers to Mail Chimp!!
I am very sorry for any inconvenience this might cause. I want to discuss some possibilities with you relating to your account but due to the account specific information that might be discussed I am going to reach out to you on the contact address on file. I encourage you to keep an eye out for an email from us so we can assist you further.
Yeah, it's pretty frustrating. There really is no way to create or save templates in Constant Contact anymore, you have to keep copying older templates and editing them.
And if you want to include a link to a photo, you are out of luck. You can only upload documents, not photos. For press releases, you have to use an outside image hosting service, one additional step that wastes time and money. Seems so simple, you can upload documents and PDF files, why not an image?
I appreciate your feedback on this. I know you have commented on this before but I will still forward additional feedback to our developers about this feature.
Additionally, I am happy to report that you can include a link to an image. When you upload an image to the library it will provide you with a File URL which you can then hyperlink in an email campaign.
It will look like this:
After you copy the link you will be able to paste it in when choosing the "Web page" option for "Type of link."
Then whatever hyperlink you have created will direct you to the file URL of the image.
I apologize if there was any confusion on this feature not being available.
I'd also like to put in a vote for being able to save templates - this is a very basic feature and it seems weird to not have it! For Newsletters it's annoying to copy old templates every week and it's error prone as sometimes old links don't get updated or removed. Please bring this important feature back!
We apologize for any inconvience this has caused and understand how important it is for you to save an email campaign as a template. At this time we're collecting feedback for our programmers about this feature. In the meantime, you can create a folder (or even sub-folders) for the email campaigns you want to use as master templates. I checked your account and it looks like you have already used the folders feature. Just in case you need the instructions again here's the FAQ with all the details on creating folders and sub-folders.
