Full Width Element

Have you ever wondered what makes a modern, responsive email template cool? We think that cool colors, and full width stripes make a modern email attractive. That’s why we introduced a brand new drag element, called “Full Width Element”.

Full width element

We already fell in love with it, so I’m sure that our next batch of  free email templates will include cool looking full width elements as well!

How does it work?

  • You can simply add a full width element to your template with a simple drag and drop, but with one important limitation: the Full Width Element cannot be added to any other drag element. This is a “Root” level element. Imagine it as a row.
  • You can set a background color for the whole element, or can even divide it into half and set a primary and secondary background color.
  • In case of the two cell version, you can adjust which cell order to follow on mobile (left to right, or right to left)

Complex Elements

This new element is for saving complex structures for later use. You can save any Box and Multi Column, with it’s content, as your Complex Element. It will soon be available for full width elements as well.

This way if you create your custom “news block” or “unsubscribe block” you will be able to save it and use it in any of your future templates.

Dynamic Elements – for API partners

This feature is not available for our single end users at this point. It is a feature for API partners, and is used for adding dynamic content into email templates for example website updates, direct link to price list, top products, etc.

Check out these new features and tell us what you think. If you find anything strange, inconvenient or disturbing, use the feedback form and tell us!
