Can I export the HTML code from an email template?

I am trying to set up these drip campaigns in Aesthetics Pro and am needing the HTML code for reminder emails, birthday emails, sign up emails etc.  I have these templates created in Constant Contact, but I can't figure out how to retrieve the HTML code.  Does anyone know how to do this?

Hi @LouisD650. Hosting or using the code on another system is a violation of our Terms and Conditions because our template design is proprietary. You can download the email as a PDF or image or recreate the email elsewhere.

Hello, 

 

Why is allowed to export HTML but you can't do that with Constant Contact? This is a HUGE issue. We often advertise with trade publications who require us to supply HTML for our emails to run through their database. Unfortunately this is yet another roadblock of Constant Contact and will have to switch marketing platforms for such a simple, basic function that any other email platform allows.

Hi @JenniferL1,

 

I can't speak to our competitors, but this sounds more like a custom coded email built from scratch (within the program or elsewhere). We do have a custom code editor, though! As for our normal Cross Device Editor, as another comment mentions, it is built with proprietary coding that we do not release publicly. I do apologize for any inconvenience that may cause.

So this custom code editor will allow me to export the HTML for the email created in Constant Contact?

There isn't a specific "Export" option available, but you should be able to copy the code from the editor itself either before sending or making a new draft copy after it is sent and copying that.
