Also, your blocks will not be deleted. Let’s say you go to your templates, open an existing template and edit the background. Then you also delete the countdown timer block. When you force-update the changes, only the background color will be changed. The countdown timer blocks will remain in the other templates.
If you choose to update existing email templates, your changes will apply for drafts, sent emails and ongoing automation emails. For sent emails the changes are applied when you copy a sent campaign.
Dynamic versus static blocks
Our emails and landing pages are built using 2 different types of blocks: dynamic and static. Force-updating template changes only works for static blocks. But what’s the difference between dynamic and static blocks?
Dynamic blocks are all the blocks you can drag from the sidebar into your template. Email campaigns only contain dynamic blocks and no static blocks.
This means that for emails you can force-update only changes that are made in the global style settings. If you want to make changes to some of the dynamic blocks, you’ll need to head to the default settings tab in your account settings. Here you can change your logo, social links and company settings (as explained in step 1).
Landing pages contain 3 static blocks: The header, footer and notification pop-up.
If you want to change the logo on all your landing pages, you can do so in the default settings or directly in your template (since it’s a static block). Both methods can be used!
