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.

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.
