What are modules?

Modules are universal elements of an email template that help reduce the time it takes to create an email.

If you want to offer your users some interesting structures with a non-standard layout or provide the opportunity to save particular elements separately from the whole email (structures, containers, stripes) for future use and the easy drag-and-drop functionality, you can fulfill it with modules.

How to configure the Library of Custom Modules?

Similar to the Image Gallery, a user may see as many folders (tabs) in the Modules tab as you've configured for your Plugin application.

For example, below, you may see 3 folders in the "Library of custom modules" called "My Blocks", "Template Blocks", and "General Blocks".

These folders were configured this way on the application details page.

In this section, you can manage:

  • the number of folders;

  • their names. You have the option to specify what names a created folder should have in every supported language;

  • the storage key ID that will be assigned to modules and will be used as an identifier.

  • and can even grant respective permissions.

Important to note: The custom modules can be saved only to the first folder at this stage.

We do not yet have the option for you to choose which folder you would like to save modules to. This is something that is on our road map so this will be definitely implemented a bit later due to other urgent things we are working on now.

According to the configurations, every time you initialize the plugin, you pass on the userId params so that the final key assigned to every module looks like this: account_${userId} (where the "${userId}" is the value of the account).

You can set up the second folder (For example, "Template blocks") with the path like account_000000 (instead of "000000," you can transmit anything you want) and transmit the accountId=000000 when you initialize the plugin as an Admin.

In this case (when you're the admin), you will also save all Modules to the "My blocks" folder, but all modules from this folder will also be visible to all other users in the "Template blocks" folder, as we placed the static value account_000000 in the path for the "Template blocks" folder.

How to deactivate the Module menu?

You can turn off this feature so the Library section won’t display in the editor at all.

In this case, there won’t be an option to save selected elements from the context menu.
