Quick Starts Update: How to Save a Quick Start to Your Ion Console

We are releasing new Quick Starts and discontinuing outdated ones. Learn how to save a template to your Ion console to use it whenever you want!

Quick Starts are templates for the most diverse Creatives and marketing strategies, developed and constantly improved by our team of designers. In addition to being attractive and interactive, these templates optimize the creation of incredible pages in Ion: when starting from a template already configured (even for different screen sizes), you only have to apply your Theme and replace the desired contents.

Although the new Quick Starts are even more interesting, we know that you might be interested in some of the templates that will be discontinued: see the list here. Thus, the tutorial below teaches you how to save a Quick Start in your Ion console so that you can use it even after it has been deleted from the library (Quick Start Cloud).

Attention: The following process is only recommended for Quick Starts that will be discontinued soon. For the other ones, you can continue to use them the same way you always did.

Saving a Quick Start to Your Console

By consulting the list provided above and in the notifications about this subject on your console, if you find any Quick Start that you want to use in the future or that you consider interesting for your business, follow this step by step process:

1. In the Portfolios option, select the Portfolio and then the Campaign in which you want to save the Quick Start, simply by clicking the Portfolio name and then the Campaign name:

Note: Defining the Portfolio and Campaign will not limit the use of the Quick Start to the selected space as you can copy Creatives to other Campaigns as explained here.

2. Within the Campaign, create a new Creative by clicking New Creative:

3. When creating the new Creative, select the Quick Start Source and Category you want to save. Then it is necessary to select the Quick Start among the previews that will be displayed:

4. As when creating a new Creative, lastly, you need to add a Label (the description is optional):

Tip: We recommend setting the same Label of the Quick Start being saved to this new Creative, or at least something that references it for easier identification in the future.

5. After clicking Save, the new Creative using the desired Quick Start will be available for use

Important: Remember not to edit this new Creative, as it will serve as a template for the pages where you want to use the template.

How to use a saved Quick Start, already deleted from the library, in new Creatives

To use the discontinued Quick Start that was previously saved to your console as a Creative, simply go to the new Creative page and select the Copy a Creative option:

Then simply select the Portfolio and Campaign where you saved the Quick Start Creative and choose the desired Quick Start by clicking on the name you gave it when you saved it as a Creative:
