Save Colors with the New Color Manager

We’ve made it easier than ever to create beautiful, revenue-generating email campaigns.

Now, as you design your campaign the colors you use are automatically added to a list of recent colors. This feature is available wherever colors are used. Backgrounds, buttons, fonts, and borders, will all have access to your 12 most recently used colors so you can, for instance, quickly apply the color from your headline text to your call to action button.

You can also save colors that you use frequently. In addition to speeding up the campaign creation process, this makes it easier to keep your branding consistent across campaigns and among team members. You can save your brand’s colors once and apply them without ever having to hunt down hex codes again.

To save a color, click the “+” symbol and it will appear in the Saved section. You can also save colors from your recently used list by clicking its swatch and then clicking the “+” to save it. To remove a color from your saved list, click it to select it and then click the trash can symbol to delete it.

Feature Update: Edit the Subject Line When Resending

One of the simpler, but very popular features of ActiveCampaign is the ability to easily create a new campaign based on a previously sent message with the Resend Options button. It’s a simple trick that saves time by building on the work you’ve already done.

You can find Resend Options by clicking the down arrow next to a sent campaign:

New: Full Width Emails

One of the best things about being an ActiveCampaign user is that you are listened to. We care about your opinion and feedback and we try to roll as much input from our users into the platform as possible. You are an important part of our development process.

So, when we heard that some users were struggling with how their emails appeared in Inbox by Gmail (because of the lack of media query), we knew we had to do something about it.

Today, we are rolling out another improvement to our email designer: you can now create full width emails. If you don’t already have this feature, you should see it within the next 24 hours.
