In editor mode, you can create your own modules.
Modules allow you to save any email element to modify (if needed) and reuse it over and over.
You can only save stripes, structures, and containers in modules.
To do this, select the appropriate item of a drop-down menu that appears when you hover on the item ...
... and then save it.
Having done that, your module is available in the modules menu. For further use, just drag and drop it to email.
Filling out the "name", "id", "tags" fields is optional.
However, using "name" and "tags" fields optimize the search of modules you need in the list of saved ones.
"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.
The module will also be available from other emails in your project.
Besides, you can copy your own saved modules to another projects (which is in your account or to which you are invited as extra user). To do that click on the ellipsis and choose the desired project.
In addition to 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 located below and help you to create similar elements layout faster.
Template modules contain various email elements created by our designer in his unique style. They are available only in the existing email crafted with basic or pre-designed Stripo template.
Pre-Built modules are available from any email, they contain various elements - some of them cannot be crafted with our embedded editor tools, like 2 blocks in one container in a row. You can use these advanced modules as a basis for similar elements of your emails by replacing their content with your own.
To optimize modules search, use filters by type and search field.
Please 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 design or some contact details in all your 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:
1. choose the necessary element ( container, structure, stripe) and click save button;
2. fill in the name and description for your module an toggle Synchronized button;
3. add tags and id if necessary;
4. click Save button;
Well done! Your synchronized module is ready. You can use it in your templates.
If you’ve done everything right, then the OFF symbol will appear on the present email template, as shown below;
You’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” button.
Done! You’ve just created and saved a synchronized module.
So you’ve added this module to all emails/templates that you built with us. Whenever the need to edit a piece of information in it occurs, you should:
- open any email template where this module was used, and click the very module in a template;
- edit this module — you can make any changes you like. I changed the links to my social media profiles and replaced the Twitter icon with the Pinterest one;
- 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;
- if done right, you will see the following inscription in the bottom right corner;
- done! Changes made to this module have been applied to all the templates where you'd used this module.
Also you can restore your module, it means that the module content will be restored from the library.
Besides, you can make unsynchronized module. So your changes will be applied only in this template, breaking the link with the library.
