Create personalized drag and drop email templates

I would like to be able to create my own personalized drag and drop email templates in the design manager.

So instead of starting to create new drag and drop templates from scratch each time and adjusting them to the CI guidelines OR cloning templates which I have created according to CI, I want to build the basic templates by using the design manager. This way, users can select from my company-specific templates when creating emails (rather than choosing the five templates provided by HubSpot) and they are still able to be creative and do their dragging and dropping, but with certain design limitations. drag and drop overview_missing draeger.PNG


This functionality is essential for large companies in order to ensure that CI guidelines are being adhered to. If not implemented, the drag and drop is basically useless.

Also, simple cloining of drag and drop emails won't do the trick: Just think about the end of the year when the copyright date needs to be changed. This needs to be coordinated by using a global module (just like in the old Design Manager). That's just one of many exmaples where the new drag and drop reveals its weaknesses.

+1 -> that is urgently needed and should be state-of-the-art.


This thread is 1.5 years old. The functionality has existed in other mass mail tools for quite some time and the ability to send emails in your own branding is SUPER important (sending emails in different designs is a very questionable practice, I would never trust an email in a branding different than that I am used to from a company).


So... when? Smiley Happy

Any updates on this one HubSpot?

This would be great. Currently we utilize custom module repeaters and hide/show booleans to allow template customization, but if we were able to create drag&drop templates it would be so much cleaner and far more user-friendly for our clients.

This would be helpful to update emails at scale! Leveraging global groups in the design manager would be a big win.

This feature is super-essential for us as an marketing automation agency! Once it would be live (rumors about availability by end of 2019 unfortunately didn't come true), we would recommend Hubspot to large clients and prospects without any reservation.

I totally agree. Creation of Email and also Landing Page Templates should be super easy, enabled with drag and drop. Please go for it :-). We need this. Thanks Christine
