What the heck happened to all the Templates that were on the system in an easily sortable form? This new layout sucks!

Hi, the templates available to the users are not good enough. I think you should add some more good templates for email marketing. Especially for recruitment agency sector.

I used 2 templates for the last several years.... they are no longer available. There is nothing available through constant contact that is anything like them. Why would you take out templates and not at least replace with something similar?????????????

definitely not an improvement. Why remove the very easy to navigate product buttons along the top navigation bar. Now everything is buried in Campaigns and I need to drill down to find anything. Please reinstate the "product" buttons: Events, Surveys etc on the top menu. The previous layout was very logical and easy to use. Not impressed with the new one.
i don't like what you have done! Your templates you don't have any for travel any more but yet you have them for Viking river cruises! i called and the gal could not find any for travel. that is why i never switched over to another program is because you had templates for travel. this did not improve things you have made a mess of things. it is confusing! I am leaving and i have been a customer since you started. you also can't ask for just Christmas, or Halloween or cards, or newsletters. there is not lst any more!

No templates for pets, vets, pet related businesses. A 67 Billion dollar industry. Really disappointed.

Overall, I do like Constant Contact; however, I would like to see additional templates offered (ideally expanding the selection substantially...15-20 additional templates would be a great start).  Additionally, I have noticed that different templates allow you to add different content blocks...not all content blocks are available with all templates.  Ideally, I feel that templates should be as customizable as possible (i.e.- you should be able to add a 'photo + text' block, layed out in several ways, to any template).  In order to keep our e-mails looking fresh and unique, we need options, options and more options!  BTW...your customer support team is really strong!  Keep up the good work!  Thank you.  :)

Agree 100%.  There appears to be plenty of user demand, as googling this brings up many zombie threads from 2010.We are considering finding another software option because of this.

 

How hard can it be to have the option of a left justified template?! 

 

Centre alignment looks very B2C.  We are predominantly B2B and want our comms to appear hot off the press.  If this can't be sorted out, CC is not for us.

 

PLEASE CAN YOU OFFER THE OPTION OF A LEFT ALIGNED EMAIL TEMPLATE.

I am working on creating 6 holiday emails for the upcoming weeks and cannot find but 2 that I can use. My customers are conservative and do not want to highlight "Christmas". So I don't want to use a snowman. I do like the gold "Celebrate" template would like to see more of those, maybe with colorful backgrounds. I am a long-time CC user. Thank you. Helen Taffet

You should design more better templates
Occasional Visitor
wow! not impressed with the Holiday templates. There used to be such a nice selection. Christmas is limited to 5 or 6? What gives? I know you're pushing the customized template but I really don't have time to do that. Wanting some classy, quick and easy. Ick! Very disappointed.

Since Constant Contact changed their layout, I have been VERY UNHAPPY. A LOT of the templates that I used to previously use are now gone. Additionally, it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to search through my previous emails sent without the image preview. I am very unhappy with this new constant contact. I'm not sure if they thought it was going to be more convenient and user friendly but it is everything but that!

I been using constant contact for several years. The christmas templates you have available for use this year are simply horrible! I am going to have to look for another email provider.
