In this JungleMail for Office 365 tutorial, you will learn how to open built-in templates or create new ones with Drag & Drop Builder.
Using built-in templates
Built-in templates is the quickest way to start working on your newsletter design. Out of the box, you can select from drag-and-drop templates or HTML templates.
To open a built-in template:
1. Open the app and select the Templates section.
2. Select the Gallery tab, then select JungleMail Templates in the drop-down menu.
Note that HTML templates are marked with a corresponding label.
3. Hover over a template and click Select to load it or Preview to take a quick look at the contents.
Drag-and-drop templates are loaded in Drag & Drop Builder, whereas HTML templates open in Rich Text Editor.
Creating a new template
There are two ways to create your own template in JungleMail for Office 365: you can either modify an existing template or create one from a blank page.
1. Open a template from Gallery or click Start from Scratch to start from a blank slate. Note that you can also open the drop-down menu to select a template builder.
2. Once you've made changes to the template content, click Save > Save as Template at the bottom right corner of the builder.
Note: you can also select Save as Draft to save the entire job, i.e., the template together with campaign settings such as recipient configuration, email subject etc. Drafts can be found in the Drafts tab.
3. Enter the template name and the subject title, then click Save.
Saved templates are available in the Templates tab.
Note: if you save a template without changing its name, JungleMail for Office 365 creates a new version of this template in the Templates tab. Template versioning helps prevent accidental overwriting of template content. To learn more, see Template versioning.
Publishing to Gallery
You can publish a template to Gallery so that it becomes accessible in the Company Templates section. This section is useful if you want to have a separate location for templates that carry your organization branding. To be able to use this feature, you need to be a JungleMail for Office 365 administrator or to have the Publish to Gallery permission (see Creating permission roles).
To publish a template:
1. Open the app and go to the Templates section in the top menu bar.
2. Select the Templates tab, then hover a template and click on the three-dot icon.
3. Click Publish to Gallery.
