Designing with Saved Rows
This article applies to all BEE Pro plans. However, some features may be limited or unavailable on the Free plan.
This article provides an in-depth look at some of the more advanced saved row features in BEE Pro. If you're just getting started, we recommend reading our Saved Rows article first.
Update a row's content
There may come a time when you need to make some adjustments to a row you've already saved. That's not a problem! There are a couple of ways you can update the content for your saved row.
Please note that updates to saved rows are not reflected in any designs where it's already used. This is a feature we hope to implement in the future!
Updating in the Builder
After dragging and dropping a saved row onto the builder stage, you might make a few adjustments. Maybe your organization's address or phone number changed. Maybe you have a new and improved logo. Does this sound like a familiar scenario?
To update your row, click the Save icon for your row again. Any time you hit save on a row you already saved, you can choose to:
- Save a new version of the row. Make sure to give it a new name!
- Update the existing row.
- Update the Category to which the row is assigned. You can also create a new category by typing after you click on the dropdown. (NEW!)*
*Categories are not available in the Free plan. You can only use the "My Saved Rows" category option.
Updating from the Library (New!)
In other cases, you might know you need to update a saved row before you start working in the builder. With our new saved row improvements, this is now possible!
When you open the My Rows tab in your Library, you'll find all the information about your saved rows. Thanks to recent improvements, you see an Edit row option when you hover over the saved row preview.
When you click on Edit row, this launches a special version of the builder intended just for the saved row. You'll notice there is no Settings tab in the sidebar; the only options you have are Content and Row. However, there are some limitations with the Row tab. Notably, you can not add more rows to your design. You can only update the settings for the existing row (e.g., mobile optimization features and column settings).
Other than these minor changes, this builder works the same as any other version of the builder in BEE Pro. When you complete your updates and exit the row builder, you land back on the My rows of the Library.
There are other options you have with your saved rows from your Library. For further information, please refer to Managing saved rows.
Managing saved rows in the Builder (New!)
You no longer need to enter the Library to manage your saved rows! We've introduced some new options for row management. You can access these options directly inside of the builder. You no longer have to drag and drop a saved row onto the builder stage to make updates. Instead, you can access everything you need directly in the builder sidebar.
When you view your saved rows in the builder's Row tab, you'll first see a preview image. Below the preview, you will see the name on the left, and an options icon on the right.
Upon clicking the options icon, you'll see two options:
- Edit details
Editing saved row details
Have you ever found two saved rows by the same name when working in the builder? In the past, you would have had to use one of those rows in your design in order to see the option to update the name. If you didn't want to use that row in your design, this could create some unnecessary clicks.
But now you can use the Edit details option directly in the builder! Clicking this button opens the same modal that you see when updating the design for your saved row.
From this modal, you can change the row name (or save it under a different name), or move it to a different category. You can also create a new category by typing a new category name in the field.
Deleting saved rows
If you find a row that you no longer need, you can easily delete it while inside the builder. Select the Delete option from the options dropdown menu. You'll be asked to confirm the action.
You'll receive a confirmation message that states your row has been deleted.
