Hi, @frisonipv!

Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums and for sharing your concern, I’d be happy to help.

 

If you are using the Shopify Email app for your campaigns, then it is definitely possible to replicate a previously sent email and start a new campaign. Essentially, you will head over to the Shopify Email app, or click on Marketing > Campaigns > Create Campaign. From there, you will scroll down past Branded templates and select Previous emailsIf you are using a different platform for your email marketing, please let me know and I'd be happy to take a closer look to see how the emails could be replicated! 

 

While on this topic, we have a great guide that covers 20 Email Marketing Best Practices to Turn Campaigns Into Sales. I suggest checking that out as you'll be able to learn the ins and outs about creating and implementing an email marketing strategy. Kindly let me know if you have any questions and I'd be happy to continue our conversation further. 

 

Talk soon!

I am following your instructions Mac and there is no longer an option to select "Previous emails". It only shows "Branded Templates". This is SUPER annoying because I just want to clone an email I created for one automation campaign and use it for several others. How is there not an easy way to do that? Do I have to create the same email multiple times?

Hi again, @just1jp!

Thanks for getting back to me. 

 

At the moment, you can't save custom templates, but you should be able to use a previous email that you sent as a starting point. The option should appear when you create a new email activity and you will create a copy of a past email for you to use and edit as a separate draft.

 

Based on your screen recording, I can see that the Previous Emails section is not being displayed. Are you able to create and save a new template. Then, head on over to create a new campaign and see if the Previous Email section appears? It should look something like this:
