In-app message editor blocks

Editor blocks are the various blocks available in the Drag & Drop Editor under the Build section. This section includes a series of tiles that represent the different kinds of content you can use in your message.

To use them, drag an editor block inside a column. It will auto-adjust to the column width. Each editor block has its own settings, such as granular control on padding. The right-side panel automatically switches to a property panel for the selected content element.


The following table describes how you can use each editor block type.

Name Description
Text Enters text into the message
Image Inserts an image from the Media Library
Button Adds a standard button. Properties for this block allow for editing, setting links, and logging analytics.
Spacer Adds space or padding between other blocks.
