At the moment, the email templates are only accessible via the email composer. If we want to edit, or change any of the existing templates (as opposed to creating one) we are forced to compose and email, and access the templates menu, then opt to manage them.
This highlights the very basic approach that has been taken to the email system in Pipedrive. The templates are very powerful, especially when linked with automatons, and deserve their own dedicated access point outside of the composer.
Additionally there needs to be a more robust fields section which allows a greater depth of access to fields, including dates, etc.
