Creating a new email from a template or by copying a message

In BEE Pro you can create a new email message in three different ways: 

From a Template

Select one of the many professionally designed email templates. Use the search by tag feature to narrow down your selection. By the way, new templates are added all the time!

Once you've edited and saved your template, it will be available in your Library. Use the drop-down menu to select View details.

Beneath the template details, there is an option to Create a message from this template.

Once you click Create a message, you will be asked to choose a destination project for your new message. Once you've selected a project and clicked Confirm, you will be redirected to the Message details page for your new message. Once the details are saved, you can begin designing your new message. 

By the way, you can also add your own custom templates to the template catalog by saving an existing message as a template on the Message details page. Once you do so, it will be available under My templates when you create a new message.

From a Message

You can create a new message by cloning an existing message. To do so, select Create a copy from the actions menu for the message that you want to use as a starting point.

    any plans to enable book marking to have hyperlinks access a placeholder within the message?

    Hi Steven, you can add anchor links using the custom HTML block in the BEE editor. You simply add a few lines of HTML code for the anchor name and then you can add the URL links. We'll be writing a tutorial on this very soon on our Email Design Workshop blog: http://emaildesign.beefree.io/. So, stay tuned!

    Having serious issues with this. When I copy an old message it messes with the photos. (I.e. I created email A & send then copy email A to create email B. When I look back at email A it's showing email B's photos - which are completely wrong!) Can anyone help me?

    Hi Jessika, what you describe is not an issue that we are aware of in BEE Pro, or that we can replicate. We just tried again:
    * Created XYZ, a copy of message ABC
    * Edited images in XYZ and saved the message
    * Went back to messages page and opened message ABC: all the images are correct.
    Could you provide more information on what you are seeing? Could you better detail the steps you are taking?

    Where is the template catalogue in BEE Pro exactly? My "templates" area is completely empty. Thre's no link to the template catalogue visible on the FREE version. Do I keep switching back and forth between BEE Free and BEE Pro? If I want to add team members and client users, will I have to keep telling them to go to the FREE version to grab a new template from the pre-coded catalogue?
