Add Search Option to Campaigns

It would be extremely helpful if I could type a couple words to search for in past campaigns. Then I could easily locate the different emails we have used to market past events we are repeating. Thanks!

Hello everyone. A quick update on this request.

 

We've slowly been releasing the ability to search for campaigns in an account. While many of our users have this ability, we haven't released it to 100% of users yet. Once we do, we'll update and close this thread. The process of enabling this feature is a bit detailed, however, we essentially have to migrate all campaign data into a new index for this tool to be able to search through all of that data. Since this includes all campaigns, it does take a bit of time. We're making great progress though and hope to have this feature available for everyone soon!

 

In the meantime, you can search for a sent campaign by the campaign name under the Reporting tab. Please note that you cannot search for campaigns in other statuses besides Sent and it will not search the content of a campaign.

How is it that we're talking to Constant Contact in the year 2017 about adding SEARCH to their ONLINE service?

It would be great to search sent emails by name so it's easier to find them.
Regular Participant
please please please add a "search" feature to the list of campaigns. takes too long to guess what page an old email i'm looking for might be on!
Participant
This should not be hard to do, I have requested this option for months..please

Is there a way to search campaign titles?

Hi, I have used Constant Contact for several years in several different capacities at my YMCA. The last update, that rearranged the "campaigns" was awful. It is very difficult to find things now, especially because since we are one organization with several departments using Constant Contact, we all have different stuff. I miss the ability to simply click on the top menu to get to events, or surveys, or emails. I wish there was a "search" fro emails. I name all of my emails for Camp Topanemus with "CT" and all of my School Age emails with "SACC." I'd LOVE to be able to simply search for all emails starting with CT or SACC to be able to find, copy and edit emails to resend. I feel like I am constantly searching for things anymore. It's become too tedious to file my emails because the folders contain everything now, and not just emails. I hope another update is on the horizon, and some of these issues will be addressed. I can't imagine I'm the only one who is frustrated. Thank you for hearing me out, Megan McVay Assistant SACC Director & Topanemus Spirit Leader

A search bar to search through all campaigns would be nice / make things a little easier and faster

Thank you for taking time and sharing your feedback!

Please add a Keyword search function to find old campaigns!! Can't believe this is not a function.
Occasional Participant
A great feature would be to be able to search on the campaign side too?
Participant
Hi there, Please can you introduce a search function to sent e-mails? We often repeat e-mails year on year or look for old e-mails to copy a template and it's so hard to find them. If you could search by name that would be so helpful!
Participant

How was this not part of the original design? How does this still not yet exist???

Would be cool if you had a search box at top of campaign screen that allowed searching by title.

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.

Participant

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 send several emails per day, it would be nice to have a search feature.
Participant
Constant Contact needs a search function for its campaigns. I set up a campaign months ago and can't remember what I called it. I'd like to copy it to reuse it. I can't find it or search for it. Please add better search functionality!
Regular Participant
It's difficult scrolling through pages of emails to replicate an email from several months ago. It would be useful to have a search function for keywords from the email or titles of the campaign.

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.

Occasional Participant
It would be great if you could add a title search option for campaigns.

Please add a search feature to sent emails. This would be really helpful to search through over 1,000 emails. Also, a search feature on contact lists would also be helpful.
Occasional Participant

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.

Occasional Participant
Please add a search function to allow search campaigns. Such a pain to go through pages and pages~~
Member

We've been asking for this for two years now....  I don't get why CC can't respond/fix.  Beyond the pale.

Occasional Participant
If I have a survey that mentions 'gateway', I'd sure like to find it through a search- and not click every page every survey... (or did I miss it?)
Participant

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.

PLEASE!!!!!! add a SEARCH Function to the Campaigns tab. Most of us have 100's of campaigns on file, which makes it very hard as it is now, to find any of them quickly. I know I'm not alone on this!! Please listen to your customers and add a "Search" function!
Participant
Why is there not a search option for previous campaigns. As of now you need to go back page by page. Please create this feature. I'm pretty surprised this is not being offered and is very useful tool that will be extremely beneficial to those who use this program. Thanks!
Participant

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.

Occasional Participant
I have been requesting this feature for YEARS! When are you going to add a search function to my campaigns page?!!! Very frustrating...
Occasional Participant
Please add a function that allows me to search my previous campaigns
Participant
There should be a search button in the campaign section so we can easily look for past campaigns instead of scrolling through pages and pages to find them.
Regular Participant
There NEEDS TO BE A SEARCH BOX in the on the campaign list page.
Participant

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?

Occasional Participant

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.

with a few hundred campaigns, there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to search for a past campaign...
Participant
Why is there not a key word search function so that we can find campaigns more easily? Or am I missing it somewhere?

how is this feature not implemented yet?
