Create a new campaign

Using the "Create new campaign" button, you can create a new one.

It will ask you to choose the template you want to use for your campaign. This step is automatically displayed when creating a campaign or if you manually click on the "Choose template" tab when editing an existing campaign. Note that choosing a template will replace the current content of a campaign.

You can search a template with the search input or display templates with a particular tag. You can display your templates or the library templates with the switch My Template | Library in the top right hand corner.

Choosing a template will automatically select the editor. If you select a template created with the drag and drop editor, then it will use this editor. You can recognize these templates thanks to the "AcyEditor" text displayed on them. If you select a standard template, then the default editor of your website will be used.

You can also create a campaign with an empty template with the button Create empty template just below the switch My Template / Library. In this case the drag and drop editor will be used.
