Open a Campaign or Automation email and edit its content. To save an email as a template:

Once you save an email as a template, it will stay in the template center unless you delete it from the email templates page. If you delete the original Campaign or Automation email node the template was created in, it will still be available in the email templates page.
Click the template icon on the left-hand sidebar, then hover over a template to see commands for duplicating, editing, previewing, or deleting a template. Deleted templates cannot be retrieved, so delete with caution.

I don't see my email template!
If you created your email in Sendlane's legacy email builder, it will not appear on the Email Templates page. Templates created in the legacy email builder can still be accessed via the Campaigns page or in Automations.
Why is my template not appearing in the search results?
The search bar on the Email Templates page only searches the text in a template's name. Make sure you are searching for terms that appear in a template's name.
