When you click the Campaigns, Lists, Reports, or Automation menu items in MailChimp's left navigation panel, you see drop-down menus on the right side of the page that relate to the page you're using. The drop-down menus are composed of two parts. The bigger left side is a button with the name of the feature most users need when arriving on the page. The smaller button to its right contains other options related to the page you're using.

Campaigns

On the Campaigns page in your account, you'll see a different drop-down menu for each campaign depending on whether the campaign is in a Draft or Sent status.

Draft Campaign Drop-Down Menu

When a campaign is in Draft status, the the left portion of the drop-down menu will be an Edit button that takes you right back to where you left off when you last worked in the campaign. Click the right drop-down menu to expand additional options.
