Editable, Prefilled <layout>

We have a contact list of our sales team at the bottom of every campaign and we would like to make this editable.

Due to user friendliness we'd like to not have to edit and upload the template each time this needs to be done and it happens more than you might think...

Any ideas?

Hi robjurd, welcome to the forums! Have you looked into adding content to the layout tags in your email template? For example:

<layout label='Contacts'>
  <h2>
   <singleline label="Contact Name" repeatertitle='true'>Contact Name</singleline>
  </h2>
  <multiline label="Contact Details">555 5th St, San Francisco, CA</ multiline>
</layout>

Once you create an editable template, you only have to upload the template once and can use it time and time again to create campaigns in our email editor.

Alternately, check out our template builder, as it's super-easy to create editable templates from scratch using our app. Let us know if you have any questions about this :)

Thanks roshodgekiss.  I have looked at that but it was about being able to prefill it with data that doesn't change very often.  I wanted to not have to change the template but rather give the user the ability to remove a row or add a row to the existing prefilled data

If you have an example of this, I'd like to check it out. In theory your sales team should be able to change up this information in the <multiline> without you having to tweak the template. Hopefully I can help out here :)
