1. Select either Blank Canvas or Theme.
The option to build from Modules has been removed as modules are now available from the main building page.
If you select build from Blank Canvas you will be taken straight to the new editing screen. If you build from a theme you will have to select a theme to use before being taken to the new editor.
Once inside you will see three tabs at the top of the screen.
2. Info tab - Under Info you can find and edit all details about the email and it's creator including:
- Sending details (from name, from email, subject line & preview text)
- URL parameters and advanced sending settings
- Audit trail
- Brand, creator and tag information.
3. Create tab - This is where you can build your email, more details below.
How to build an email from the Create tab
On the right of the create screen you will see four drop down sections
- Email settings
Email settings - Here you can define global settings that will affect the entire email such as email width and background colour
Content - Content blocks which you can drag into the rows in your email. (text, image etc)
Structure - Row types with one to four columns which you can drag into your email and populate with content blocks
Modules - You can now find all your modules in the main editing screen, no more having to switch back to an alternative screen to grab a module!
When you drag a module into your email it will remain grouped together as a single piece of content. You can easily move the whole module up or down in the email using the cross hair icon to the left of the module.
If you need to break the module apart to move individual pieces of content, just click 'Break apart module' on the right of the module section.
The save button and the publish menu have moved to the top right corner of the screen.
You can name your email and see last save time in the top left corner of the screen.
There are expanded options in the top navigation bar to delete, clone and preview your email.
