Introducing the New Drag & Drop Email Editor

Looking for an easier and faster way to create emails that engage patrons in new ways? You’re in the right place! We’ve combined the flexibility and ease of drag and drop functionality with features you requested in an email editor in our new Drag & Drop Email Editor.

You asked and we added:

  • Undo and redo buttons
  • Mobile responsiveness with device previews
  • Video thumbnails (here’s why we suggest you don’t embed
  • DIY call-to-action buttons
  • Image editing
  • Social media icons in a variety of styles to drop in anywhere
  • Sections that can be moved side to side, up and down, and placed anywhere you want
  • Modules which allow you to save a section from one e-blast and use it in another
  • Did we mention there's an undo button?


First things first


Here are a few things to know before getting started.
  • This is version 1 of the new Drag & Drop Email Editor. We continue to work on additional features like adding book & AV records and more.
  • You can schedule emails, access your Subscriber Interest Groups, and run reports just like you do now.
  • Templates created in the Classic Editor cannot be opened in the Drag & Drop Editor but don’t worry. Our designers have created brand new templates and recreated many Classic Editor favorites so they take advantage of what this new editor offers. And like all our templates, these are easy to customize to meet your needs. Here’s how
  • NextReads newsletters, newsletter widgets including book carousels and newsletter archives, and the ability to automatically pull in book records are not part of this live beta. Use the Classic Editor for now.
  • Our exclusive “On the Shelf” feature is not yet enabled but we’re working on it. For now, search book jacket images using the ISBN instead of a keyword to make sure you select something from your collection.
  • You still have access to millions of library-focused images and graphics, book jackets, your branding blocks, and any items you’ve uploaded into the Image Selector.  

What about all the emails I’ve created in my Folders or under Newsletters? They’re all still there, safe and sound. Please note they can only be used in the Classic Editor. 


Can I use the Drag & Drop Email Editor to send e-blasts to my newsletter subscribers? You sure can! Here's how.
