New look doesn't seem to show the campaign thumbnails on the list of campaigns. Big negative!
I noticed with you new roll out of the look of Constant Contact, the thumbnails for what the emails look like are gone. Is there a way to put these back? Was much easier looking through past emails to see which campaign it was from and also what templates I can use to change out the info to create new emails from.
With the new "list only" format, I can not do this and have a more difficult time choose and navigating through which emails I want to use, etc.
Thank you for the consideration in putting the thumbnails back.
I'm with everybody here. The lack of thumbnails is very irritating. I too have based my current emails on past emails. We are trying to brand our companies by providing similar looks from previous campaigns. You would scroll through your past emails and select the best via the thumbnail (without having to click on every email). You took this away which has now increased my workload.
So here is a workaround, not the greatest but at least you get to see what you need. Save your campaignes as templates. That way when you go to "create" a new email you can go to your saved templates and see ALL of them. It's all I've got for now. Hopefully they will actually build something the user wants instead of whoever they asked (if) about new changes.
Thanks for the suggestion. How do you save a campaign as a template?
In response to Carol Fishman.
You can click on the campaign you want to save, then click on the Actions at the top right. The dropdown will have a selection "Save as Template". It is still tedious in the beginning but then you will have all the thumbnails to choose from in the future. I started doing this right away so I don't waste any more time trying to find the past campaigns I need. PS Regular saving under the Folders template doesn't work. Been there, done that. You have to "Save as Template".
Thank you!! I was clicking on "Actions" in the Campaigns list and didn't see the "Save as Template" option. Didn't know I had to open it first. Works perfectly. Thanks!
By now, I'm hoping that the Constant Contact Development team realizes that removing the thumbnails from the Campaign section has not been well received...and that they are working diligently on a quick-turnaround planning for re-installing them.
I called about this the other day to express the negative effect it has had in my office. I was trying to put together a time-sensitive, required report for a grant funding source and experienced both the "no thumbnail" and "scroll down, scroll down" issue when I was trying to find specific campaigns that I wanted to share in my annual report. The new "features" cost me about an extra hour in putting together the report.
I feel the same way. I'm so confused.
