Organizing modules in Design Library
With categories in the Design Library in Litmus, you can organize your modules (Snippets and Partials) in one centralized location, making it easier for all team members to find content to build brand-compliant emails at scale, regardless of how many ESPs are being used.
Categories in Design Library are completely custom, making it easy to organize code modules by department, team, region, email type, or any other organizational structure. Plus, modules can be assigned to multiple categories making it easy to keep all resources current.
Note: this feature is only available on a Litmus Enterprise plan.
Creating a category
To create a category, navigate to your Design Library by clicking on Design in the top navigation and then click the Create a category button from the Overview page or use the Create option in the left sidebar next to the Module categories heading.
If you haven't yet created any categories, you can also click the Create new category button in the left sidebar.
If you have existing categories, then click the Create button in the left sidebar next to the Module categories heading.
Give your category a name and description (optional) and click Create category.
Your new category will show in the left sidebar under the Module categories section and you'll be taken to the category, where you can begin to create and organize modules within it.
Browsing categories in Design Library
Your categories are all available from the left sidebar in Design Library under the Module categories section. To browse modules in your categories, simply click on a category name in the sidebar to view the modules in that category. From the category view, you can create, edit, or delete any modules in that category, as well as add and remove modules from the category.
Click on a category in the left sidebar to view it. To rename or delete a category, hover over its name in the category view and click the pencil icon to rename or the trashcan to delete.
If you didn't add a description to your category when you created it, you can always add or edit your description later. To do this, click the Add a description option or simply click on the existing description to edit it.
Tip: category descriptions are also visible in Builder to help guide users on how to properly use modules while building emails.
Assigning modules to categories
To add or remove a module from a category, first find the module and click on it to reveal its details in the right sidebar. You can see a list of all your modules, regardless of type, in the All modules section of Design Library.
With your module selected, click on either the Edit option next to the In categories details in the right sidebar, or click on the context menu (the button in the bottom right corner with a three-dots icon) and click Edit categories.
Select the categories you want your module assigned to using the checkboxes in the modal dialog and then click Save.
Note: modules can be assigned to multiple categories!
Browsing categories in Litmus Builder
Categories are not just useful in your Design Library. When you organize modules in categories, you will find those same modules organized by category in Builder. To browse modules by category in Builder's code editor, click Insert and then click Snippets or Partials depending on what type of modular content you wish to use. Click on any category to expand its contents and view its full description, or use the search filter to quickly find what you're looking for.
To browse modules by category in Buiilder's visual editor, simply open the visual editor to the Modules tab and you will see your categories. Click on any category to expand its contents and view its full description, or use the search filter to quickly find what you're looking for.
Note: only snippets modules are available for drag-and-drop building in the visual editor.
