Help us improve drag-and-drop in Adobe Marketo Engage

Hello Marketing Nation,

 

Our UX team is looking to improve the drag-and-drop function in Adobe Marketo Engage. Please read the questions below and let us know in the comment section if you have any thoughts or feedback! 

 

  1. How do you currently use drag-and-drop? How easy or difficult is it to perform this action?
  2. What can be improved with drag-and-drop? Are there any areas where you would like this functionality that don’t currently have it?

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

Hi Jon, I mainly use the drag-and-drop in a program, and then in particular because when I click create "New Local Asset" in/on a program-subfolder, the actual asset is created on the program level and not in the subfolder I had selected. If that would be solved, I would in fact use drag-and-drop a lot less 😉

In Design Studio I'll use a "Testing/Staging" folder and a "Production" folder. As things are getting put together and approved they live in the Testing folder and then I'll drag-n-drop them to the Production folder from there. It would be really handy to be able to bulk-move pages from one folder to another by using something like a multi-select drag-n-drop if that's possible.

 

... and maybe a bit aside from the question here -- but wouldn't drag-n-drop for Guided LPs be something!?! It'd be wonderful to get something like EM 2.0 for LPs sometime in the near future. I've been running into more clients lately that use some "other" LP service to create LPs b/c of the drag-n-drop editor and more intuitive interfaces they offer. Those same clients are usually using EM 2.0 for emails so maybe there's something there to work with?

I use the drag and drop feature majorly in the programs when I create assets in subfolders, because every time I create a new asset it will create the asset in the parent folder then I drag that to the desired folder. 

Improvements:

1. The assets should be created in the selected folder so that we do need not to drag the assets every time we create one. 

2. Would it be possible to provide a multi-select option or to move multiple assets in one single attempt?

Multi-select would be a huge improvement on the tree. Both for selecting multiple assets to move into a program's folder, and for moving multiple programs into another program.

 

Examples

- You start off a program with simple foldering or no folders at all, but discover that as it gets more complex it needs more organization

- You're reviewing an instance you inherited or programs created by someone else, and you want to add more structure within a program or you want to redo the foldering entirely

- You are archiving old programs and moving to an archive folder (this is probably the biggest time suck!)

Drag and drop is also important in the email builder, either dragging modules on to the layout or moving them around
