After a campaign, it's useful to keep your used template for future reference, but separate from your list of active templates. The Move to Archive function in the My Templates page moves templates from your active library to the Archived Templates page. In this page, you can continue to use many of the same functions from the My Templates library, or restore an archived template for use in a future campaign.
This page includes:
- Search Your Archived Template Library
- Previewing Your Template in a Browser Window
- Editing Your Template
- Copying Your Template
- Sending a Test Message using Your Template
- Previewing Your Template in Mailboxes
- Assessing Your Template with Spam Doctor
- Restore to Your Templates
- Deleting Your Templates
- Restoring Multiple Templates
Each page in your archived templates library displays up to 10 archived templates at one time. If you have more than 10 templates, click through the pages using the bottom page navigation or search for templates by entering the name in the search field at the top and clicking Search Template.
Bring up a preview of your template in a new browser window by clicking one of three areas in the template row: The template thumbnail image, the assigned template name, or the Preview (Magnifying Glass) icon in the template row.
Edit your template in DirectIQ's Friendly Editor by clicking on the Edit (Pencil) icon in the template row.

It's often helpful to create a copy of your template to test minor variations or to experiment without affecting the original. To create a copy, click on the Copy (Document with Plus) icon in the template row.
Test your template by sending it to individual email addresses instead of your lists by clicking the Test (Speedy Envelope) icon in the template row.

View a simulated version of your template as it will appear in the web's most popular inboxes by clicking the Mailbox Preview (Document with Question Mark) icon in the template row.
To check your template code against popular spam filters, click the Spam Doctor icon in the template row.

To restore the template for active use, move it to your My Templates library by clicking the Move to My Templates (Storage Box) icon in the template row.

To permanently delete a template, click the Delete (Trash Can) icon in the template row.
WARNING: Deleting a template will permanently erase it from your DirectIQ account, along with any changes you made to the template. You will NOT be prompted to confirm that you want to delete the template. Archiving your template is recommended instead of deleting.
Select one or more templates to restore to your My Templates library for active use by using the check box in the first column of the template row, and clicking the Restore button at the bottom.
