Tiny but valuable improvement to usability


We feel that when viewing a campaign that uses a template at:
> Overview > Campaign Name > Edit Content

1) It would be really helpful to be able to see the names of the layouts that have been used. Ideally without the need to click edit.

2) At present even when edit is clicked - only the names of the labels for the inputs are shown, there's no title - which would be the label of the layout.

We think these additions would help template builders get templates stable - it would save time. Yes, we can label our input fields for the layout name and that's what we'll have to do for now, but it's a workaround for something that we think would be a relatively easy improvement for your developers. As we think campaign monitor is superb we thought we'd take the time to send you some feedback.

Hope you consider it useful and that we haven't missed something obvious...

HI Tim, thank you so much for this fabulous feedback, as well as taking the time to write in. Just so we can get a better idea of what's happening here, would you like the name of the layout (as defined in label='layout name') to be displayed, either when you click 'Edit', or 'Add new'? If so, that's not a bad idea, however unless you have plenty of layouts, we find that it's usually fairly evident which layout corresponds to which name. We see that many layouts get named things like, "Article with left-aligned image", which generally removes the confusion.

Nonetheless, this could save a bit of time (especially when transferring templates between designers), so happy to pass this on to the team internally, once we have a clear idea of how we can improve things here :)
