Modules are universal elements of an email template (containers, structures, stripes) that help reduce the time it takes to create an email. And Stripo platform allows you to create your own modules.
Modules allow you to save stripes, structures, and containers to modify (if needed) and reuse them over and over.
How to save a custom module?
To save a module, hover over the desired element and press the "Save as module" button;
Give the module a name on the settings panel;
Enter a description (optional), the description will later help you understand what content this module contains;
Select a category for easy search;
Enter tags. The "Tags" field allows you to group the saved modules by tags. You can add one or several tags. Then, choosing the modules, you will see that your modules are grouped by tags;
Having done that, your module is available in the "Modules" → "My modules" tab; even more, the module will also be available from other email messages and templates in your project. For further use, just drag and drop it to email.
How to update the saved module?
Make changes to your module and press the "Save as module" button. Then, you will see an option to Update the module or save it as a new one.
How to share with a custom module?
Additionally, you can copy and share your own saved modules to other projects with the MEDIUM, PRO, and PRIME organization (which is in your account or to which you are invited as an extra user).
To do that, click on the ellipsis and choose the desired project.
Please, be aware that if you Copy the module to other Projects within Organization, some invited user roles will be able to edit and delete the modules.
However, if you Share the module with other Projects, the users cannot edit and delete the modules.
What are the "Template" and "Pre-Built" module folders?
In addition to the modules you crafted yourself, you can also use our pre-designed ones from the "Template" modules and "Pre-Built" nearby tabs. All of them have a short essential description below and help you create similar elements layout faster.
"Template" modules contain various email elements created by our designers in their unique style. They are available only in the existing email crafted with a basic or pre-designed Stripo template.
They have ready-made styles of a particular template or their variations for replacement.
In the "Prepared" template, you can find interesting modules with a non-standard layout.
"Pre-Built" modules are available from any email. Our library consists of a considerable number of already prepared modules that our designers have thought to the smallest detail. These modules are elegant and attractive; some contain pre-configured smart or AMP elements.
You can use these advanced modules as a basis for similar elements of your emails by replacing their content with your own.
The collection is replenished every day and has more than 250 modules. All these modules are at your disposal. You can find them in the "Pre-Built" tab.
To optimize modules search, use filters by type and search field.
Important to note that displaying of some modules elements may vary in different emails as they use styles from some certain email.
Imagine that your company needs to change the design or some contact details in all your email templates. Does it mean that you will have to change all the modules manually? Luckily, no. With Synchronized Modules, the process is much more quickly and easier.
To create a synchronized module, you need to:
Choose the necessary element (container, structure, stripe) and click the "Save as module" button;
Give the module a name, description (optional), tags (optional), and Select a category on the settings panel;
Toggle the "Synchronized" control. If this control is activated, then changes made to this module will be applied to all templates/email messages where this module has been used with the synchronization option activated;
Click the "Save" button;
Well done! Our synchronized module is ready;
If we’ve done everything right, then the "OFF" symbol will appear on the present email template, as shown below;
We’ve built a synchronizable module/content element, but the synchronization option has not been activated yet.
To finally activate this option, click this "OFF" symbol, then in the settings panel, toggle the "Synchronized module" control;
Done! Let's add the Synchronized module to another email template within our current project;
Now we need to edit a piece of information of this module and update the module in a previous email template. I changed the logo in the header;
The "OFF" symbol appears on my content module again — click it to activate;
Once you’ve clicked it, go to the settings panel; there, you will be asked to "Update" your module;
Done! Changes made to this module have been applied to all the email templates where we'd used this module;
Furthermore, you can restore your module, which means that the module content will be restored from the library;
And you can make an unsynchronized module. Your changes will be applied only in this template, breaking the link with the library.
