Hi @DonD165 are you receiving  emails through our system that appears to be solicitation? Or are you looking for a different type of email campaigns to send your contacts?

I went back through 3 mos. of trash emails, which is how long I save before
purging! This all started when we went to do a draft of our weekly
information that's sent to all of our members, only to find that it wasn't
available. I was told that when calling in that an email had been sent
explaining the change, to which I don't have. I got lucky and got a very
knowledgeable person yesterday that led me through the whole process of
creating a new template, after talking the night before to someone with a
whole lot less knowledge and customer service skills that weren't up to
par, scaled with the latter.

I want a plain template like I used for years and years once a week on your. site before I had to update my computer and start from scratch and be deprived of "previous template' which was always the same and EXACTLY what I want.  I don't want pictures, animations, advertising, cute crap or anything but a white rectangle to present my week's programming in script like a letter like I used to be able to have her for years.

Hi @RoyT625 thank you for sharing this feedback with us! Have you tried using our Basic Letter template? This email template does not automatically come with designs or any animations. Does this template fit your needs? In the meantime I have merged your comment into a thread focused on requesting more template options.

Why is it you only have Golf, Football, Fitness, Basketball, and Baseball.  What about Soccer and Volleyball.  Two sports in the USA that have outgrown all of these.  Also consider Hockey, X-game sports, swimming, tennis, gymnastics just to name a few.  There are so many businesses (youth sport businesses) that you are not adhering to their business needs for marketing.  Please think of us as well!

It's unfortunate that there is no Canada Day template. I've been a Canadian customer of yours for over 10 years (and I know there is lots of us) and it just would have been nice to have that available for us today. Thanks for listening.

We are happy with many of the templates provided -- were very happy to see the additional ones a few years back.  Many of them are so rigid, however.  We should be able to pay for help to delete a divide that is in the built-in background, add a photo or something we want to customize in a template.

CC needs better email templates. The ones offered feel limited and dated. I am a long time user of cc (over 10 years) but I'm thinking about switching. Helping customers "concept" their newsletters by offering fresh, contemporary designs seems like a winning activity for greater customer satisfaction. 

 

SAS companies like Canva and Adobe Spark are setting expectations about what we can do creatively. Providing themes, design templates, idea generators is SUPER helpful. Companies like flodesk are generating beautiful templates that make designing and sending very easy. I'd love for CC to step up. 

Thanks!

As a Canadian who uses your platform on a regular basis, I want to say how pleased I am to with how your entire program works and its ease.  I would like to ask for a new template for emails for us Canadian's though.  Today is a new holiday in Canada, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. You have a lot of templates to mark other days, I would like to see this one added, please.

 

September 30, 2021, marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

The day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.

The creation of this federal statutory holiday was through legislative amendments made by Parliament. On June 3, 2021, Bill C-5, An Act to amend the Bills of Exchange Act, the Interpretation Act and the Canada Labour Code (National Day for Truth and Reconciliation) received Royal Assent.

I hope that the information that I have provided gives you what is needed to understand the importance of this day and the significance of having a email template dedicated to this day.

 

Thank you.  I look forward to your response.
