How was this not part of the original design? How does this still not yet exist???
Thanks for posting this feedback!

Is this a joke??? There are over 500 comments on this thread alone, and your clients have literally been asking for this feature for years. And yet there has never been a substantive response from CC on why this feature is missing, or whether you will ever add it. It is truly mind boggling, and the reason we are working to move to one of your competitors.
Please do this. It makes me want to move all of the information that I have to that monkey-email program. Very frustrating.
Simple as that
This was suggested in the comments of another unrelated post. It got a bunch of comments of people who all wanted this search feature but the post was closed with No Action and I am not sure if it is because the original post was unrelated to this. So I am formally asking again for a search function on the Campaigns page. This would save many many of us a lot of time of scrolling through to find old campaigns that we need to copy or reference. PLEASE add a simple search function to find campaigns easier!!!! Being able to rename a campaign after it was sent is also needed.
I'm trying to find an email message I sent back in December 2016, not so long ago. In this folder there are 342 messages. I've sorted them by New-Old, so you'd think I could find it. Noooo...
The messages go from May 2017, April 2017, December 2009(!!??), February 2017, March 2017, November 2016... You get the idea. So, I have to scroll through 18 pages of old messages to find the ONE I'm seeking.
It would be great if a) they would list in ACTUAL New-Old *chronological* order or b) there was a Search window at the top that would allow you to search for a keyword in the email name.
Constant Contact, please stop making your interface more "sleek and pretty" and maintain and/or improve the functionality. That's what your customers are paying for. Such a bummer with all these new changes.
I could really use a search field for the emails, since I manage so many emails, it can be cumbersome to have to click through all of them to find what I'm looking for.
We have campaigns back to 2013, if I don't know the date I am looking for, I have to spend way, way too much time finding it. Can't believe Constant Contact doesn't have a search function. We may leave Constant Contact just because of this. The whole office is annoyed as heck that there is no search function.
We've been asking for this for two years now.... I don't get why CC can't respond/fix. Beyond the pale.
Please make a search function so that it is easier to find emails via keyword, date, year, etc. If I want to reuse an email, say to update an annual event, I have to search through hundreds of emails to find the one I need. This takes a good amount of time. It seems a search function is a pretty common resource. It would add tremendous value to Constant Contact, not only for emails, but for photos, documents, etc. Thank you.
Love Constant Contact! Would like to suggest that you add a "search" function to your campaign list, so that we can more quickly find old campaigns.
I second/millionth this request for a search function of campaign titles! PLEASE do this!!! Scrolling ot find one past campaign is a needless time suck.
For the love of god Constant Contact, please add a "search" function to be able to find old campaigns. Everyone that I talk to that uses this requests it. For example, we are a club that has the same or similar events every year and need to go back and reference an old event. I have to scroll through hundreds of campaigns to find an old one. It seems like such basic stuff to have a search function. If I want to go back and find last years "Halloween Party" then I should easily be able to search for it. I know there are folders but that does not cut it. Just like emails have folders, you can also type whatever it is you are looking for in a "search field" and easily find what it is you are looking for. There is no reason not to have such a basic function
Concurring with everyone's comments here. Is there a plan to add this feature anytime soon?
When is a search function being released, go from "Good to Great" please
Being able to search past campaigns would be extremely helpful to our organization too! It is extremely frustrating to have to look page by page for an old email.

how is this feature not implemented yet?
Any idea when this will be implemented? Seems like you guys lack in the most basic features and this is a PAID service!
How many times do we have to beg and plead, Constant Contact, before you implement a basic search function? It's great that you finally brought back the thumbnail view, but for goodness sake, stop making cutesy changes and implement a basic search function. There are 59 pages in this reqest thread - not 59 comments - 59 *pages*. We users think this is a priority, and maybe soon you will too. C'mon now.
Having a search function for campaigns would be incredibly helpful, going through page by page looking for an email is tedious.
How about we wrap up this long list of requests with a "yes, we've implemented it"? That would be cool.
Aren't y'all tired of hearing us ask for this, Constant Contact? I know I'm tired of asking. 😕
My non-profit has many users, thousands of campaigns, and it is a huge time sink for our already busy staff not to be able to find campaigns with a key word search. It really, really is needed.
We need to search through campaigns to find previous email campaigns.
Just discovered this issue and found a quick work around.
Go to Reporting tab (in dark grey tool bar) from the main page > Then scroll down passed the ekg trend readout to Email Campaigns search bar.
Hope that helps and that it has not already been mentioned.
Thanks for the idea HughCO. That will definitely be helpful, but it only searches emails not events. Still, it helps!!
This is a huge help. Thank you so much! Of course, it would be nice if CC would just fix the issue. But this is a great work around.
The reports page is handy for finding recent campaigns. I have mentioned the Reports search bar in my previous post in they way of "why can CC have a search bar on the reports page but not the campaign page?" The Reports page only accesses the past 500 campaigns; for us that is only back to March of this year. We, along with many other companies I see on this message, need to go back further than that.
HughCO, right on! Thanks for the workaround. It would be great if CC would just implement this in the Campaigns tab, but this will be very useful in the meantime. Kudos! :thumbsup:
