Transcript: Hey everybody, Jeff here with an update on our drag-and-drop builder. The new builder’s in early-access release, so let’s talk about what we’re doing to make it even better.

We have a few top priorities with the new builder. We’re hoping to release around 30 drag-and-drop templates within the next month. Some of these are brand new, and a few are existing templates that we’ve moved over from the Version 2 builder.

We’ve also just released an undo/redo feature. Right now, this only works with text, but we are looking to make it available for all stages of page development. (Note: To use text undo, simply hit command+Z; to redo, hit command+shift+Z.)

Further out, we’re looking to add integrations with ActiveCampaign, Ontraport, and WebinarJam.

You’ll also get better control over columns, so you can easily control spacing, margins, and vertical alignment.

We’re also adding a feature to allow for rounded corners and circular buttons or images.

In the next several months, we’re also going to launch A/B testing to give you the ability to test all the pages you’ve created in our drag-and-drop builder.

We’re also working on adding sticky sections to pages so that a portion of the page can remain static as the rest of it scrolls.

We’re always adding new widgets, and some you can expect are Google Maps and Twitter widgets in the future, along with more options for your countdown timers, and last but not least, we’re working on an undo/redo functionality for overall changes to your page in the current session.

This requires significant engineering, but we’re working hard to get this and all these updates out to you as soon as possible.

If you have LeadPages™, you don’t need to download this template – it’s already available to you inside your LeadPages account. Just log in and you’ll see how super easy it is to customize this page in seconds with no technical knowledge or skills, make it mobile responsive, integrate it with your email service provider or CRM, run A/B split tests, and publish it to Facebook, WordPress, or your own server.

    Great. But would it be possible to prioritise adding in the missing integration features the standard LeadBox builder has. Without the ability to set things like hidden fields (needed to segment lists and drive automation on “list based” services like MailChimp), we need to skip using the Drag & Drop Leadboxes and instead embed STANDARD Leadboxes on our pages.

      Hey, Ian—you can definitely use hidden fields with the drag-and-drop builder. Here’s where that function appears. (Of course, we’re working on making drag-and-drop Leadboxes better in other ways, too, but this particular feature already exists.)

        Hi Daphne, I’m not seeing this in the Drag & Drop editor. I now see hidden mergetag fields in the set of “supported fields” in a different format to above, but not the ability to set groups as per the standard builder (that looks a little like the above).

        • Daphne Sidor

          I see—thanks for clarifying. I checked in with our Product team, and the good news is we’ve already completed the backend work needed to make this happen, so this functionality is on the way.
