Campaign setup tab: Designs

Designs are essential for your campaign. To send any campaign within e-shot a design must be assigned to the campaign. 

Selecting a design 

To add a design to your campaign, simply click the ‘Select design’ button. This will bring up the below page.  

Choosing your design

From this page you will see all the newest designs in your subaccount. To select a design, you can double click a design or click once to select the design, which will highlight the design in green. You can now click the ‘Assign selected design’ in the bottom right corner to assign the design to the campaign. 

There is also an option to include the subject line and preview text that may have been attached to this design previously. This box is automatically ticked; however, you can untick it. This will leave your subject line and preview text blank for the meantime. Full details on setting your subject line and preview text can be found in our dedicated article.

Applied design example

Once you have assigned a design, you will be taken back to the campaign’s setup page where you will now be able to see the design you chose.  


Previewing a design  

Ensuring your design is correct before sending is essential, previewing the design along with testing allows you to see how the campaign will look to your chosen audience upon sending. 

We have now made it even easier to preview your designs. Once a design has been assigned to a campaign, you can simply click the ‘Preview selected design’ button, which will open a new tab and take you straight to the preview of the design.  

Previewing the applied design

When you are choosing a design for your campaign, there is also an option to preview before assigning the design. This is useful for if you have designs that look similar in the thumbnail. Every design, when you are selecting a design, will have a preview button on the right-hand side. Clicking this button will again open a new tab with the preview page for that design.

Once a design has been assigned to a campaign, it can be removed at any time. To do so just click on the red button labelled ‘Remove 'and the design will automatically be removed. You can then select an alternative design when you are ready.
