Can no longer rename sent emails ("campaigns") ???

So now (unless I'm missing something I've spent 15 minutes looking for on the site and in the forums) it is no longer possible to rename sent email campaigns? Why would developers remove something so useful and widely used ???

I have read the forums, but still cannot see how to change the name of an email in Draft mode. When you are given the option to copy an existing file when creating an email, there should be a "Save As" option. Currently I would like to know how to rename an email that is in Draft mode. Thank you!


HI Doug,


When your email is in draft mode, you want to click on the name of it to go into the edit screen.  Once there, you will see the current name of the email up in the top left under "Customize Your Email".  To the left of where it says "Draft", you can see a little pencil icon. Just click anywhere on the name of your email and it will open up so you can edit the name.

I hope that helps!

It shouldn't be this complicated. I need to be able to change the name of the emails that I already sent.


Unfortunately, once an email has been sent, you can no longer edit it, including editing the name of the email.


I apologize for any inconvenience.

Could you guys change things so that we can have that capability? Just curious. Thanks.


I'd be happy to submit a request to our developers to have the ability to edit a sent email name within your account.   As we get more people requesting this feature, it becomes a higher demand for our developers and then they will make the decision if they will implement it. Please keep sending feedback so that we can enhance the products that you have with us!

Please add my name as well. This is a simple and basic function and it is really needed!



You can change the name of an draft email by following the steps below. However, an email that is sent already cannot have the name changed.


1.  At the top left of screen, click the text that says "Email Created 20XX/XX/XX, X:XX" with today’s date and time.
2  Type in a name that will help you easily identify the email in a list (your contacts will not see this name).

Example: “Fall Festival Update”

How do you change the name of an e-mail draft if you are using your own 'Custom Template'? When I click on the 'Edit' button there is no pencil image next to the name and no other way to re-name the draft. See the screenshot below.
