First I would like to say I love using Constant Contact! It is easy to figure out and we have been
happy customers for a few years now. I like all the updating and everything is working great.
It would be even more awesome if we could have a search bar in our Campaign section that we could put the title
in of our e-mail that we are looking for. Most of the time I copy existing Campaigns and I need to find them to update and
send out. Right now I scroll through searching for them one by one. It would save me a lot of time if you can make a
search bar and I can just put in the title and bam, it pops up!

You used to be able to search for old emails much more easily than now.
You had page numbers before so that if you were looking for an email you sent 6 months ago, you could go to page 5 and see the dates those emails were sent. If you went to far, you could go to page 4.
Now you have to scroll down and it takes forever!
Bring back the old method.
Before recent "improvements", it was fairly simple to search through my old campaigns by page (I knew I could find a post I sent from September 2015, for example, on page 😎 to locate one to re-use as a template. I did this very often = just jump to a numbered page. No worries then. Now, I'm forced to spend hours (not kidding) wasting time clicking and reclicking "view more campaigns" to prompt the reloading of at most 4 - 5 items at at time while scrolling endlessly to locate a campaign. "Use the search function" they say, "just enter the title" they say - but the new "search" function only goes through the last 50 or is it just 30(?) eblasts. I send waaaaay more than that in a year. Since I most often re-use seasonal campaigns from prior years I need to go back a year or two on any given day to locate a desired piece to replicate. This new format is incredibly frustrating and such a loss in efficiency in this regard.I know what you're going to suggest. "Just put them in a folder". I would If I could find them! When I do finally locate a campaign I'd like to hang on to and click the radio box to begin the process to "move to folder", the system locks up. :smileysad: I've been fighting with this for the past 3 hours. I'm toast. Calling it quits. And still haven't finished the campaign I came on to craft this eve. Please dear ConCon Conquerers, please expand the search function so we can actually locate our campaigns quickly and get ourselves back to work!
I often update previous campaigns. It would be wonderful if you could provide a search window on the main page so that I could easily find a campaign I'm looking for. If that's not possible, is it possible to be able to categorize the campaign on the final page before I schedule it? It's rather annoying to have to go back and categorize a campaign after it's sent.
As a follow up to search for campaign by date range, I would like to be able to search by number opened, number of click thrus, and I would like to see the Subject Line on the report as well. And I would like to see more than the last 50----I want to be able to search thru history. Is that possible?
ZACKLY~!! Ditto Kiddo~!!
With the new format it's been difficult to find earlier email campaigns I created to use again and copy. A "Search" function to search by date or campaign name or other keywords would be very helpful. Also, in the past I was able to edit individual blocks of text using the HTML codes. (Examples were editing for superscripts, fractions, copyrights, trademarks, etc.). This is not an option with the new format. Please consider bringing HTML block editing back or ad new functionality in text editing for superscripts, fractions, copyrights, trademarks...
I was just about to post a very similar feedback!! I am glad to see I am not the only one a bit frustrated with the new layout.
I hope this gets resolved sooner than later - LIKE ASAP!!:smileyindifferent:
Your new format is unacceptable. Previously we could quickly find old campaigns and update them for current use, There were thumbnails available besides dates and pages which made searching and updating easier. You've now made using your service much more difficult, especially for long term subscribers. We've always really liked using Constant Contact, but we're going to be forced to leave your service if this "upgrade" isn't changed again quickly.
We've been aasking for this feature ever since they "upgraded" the system. They are not responding to our many, many, many requests for this feature.
Ditto here. I used to be able to find old emails--and I have hundreds of them--by easily selecting and then accessing an old page. Sometimes I was off by a page or two, but it was a simple matter to change the page number to find the one I wanted. Now, there is no way to find what I want without, as TriDeltaEO says, clicking "view more campaigns" again and again and again. Can you give this matter some serious attention? Sometimes "cleaner" is not always "better." Thank you.
I'm too facing the same issue, need to be resolved this problem soon. Search for the campaign must be set somwhere above the list of emails as in the previous version :smileysad:
YESSS!!!! OMG... and when you click one to check if it's the one (and it ends up NOT being it) You're back to page 1!!!!
Exactly my problem too... PUT BACK THE PAGE SEARCH already!!! Or better yet.. how about a search tool with varied choices!
