Save custom containers in a newsletter as clone blocks

Our platform gives you the option to create your own clone blocks to save custom containers in your newsletter. You can design a container from scratch or reuse a specific container from a template, for example, a brand header or a footer, or a reusable newsletter article or image, without having to save the entire design as a template.

After you have added containers with items to your newsletter, you can create a clone block in the Campaign Editorand then use or delete it later.
