On the 13th day of December...Constant Contact gave to me...
a search button for my campaigns!!!
This is the beginning of something new and beautiful.
I TOO say THANK YOU!
Well, on 12/13/18, there was a search option. Today, there is not. Unless, I missed something. here's my screen.
Hey @SandyK22, thanks for reaching out! We've been working hard on creating a new feature that allows you to search through your campaigns and events and we've been progressively enabling this on accounts. I just checked your account and it looks like you've got access to this awesome new feature already! All you'll have to do is navigate to the "Campaigns" tab on your account and there will be a "Search Campaigns" option on the right side of the page. It's located just above the list of campaigns. If you have any suggestions or see any issues, please let us know about them.
Thanks again for taking the time to post your feedback!
The search bar function has been implemented, but I am a frustrated that the page search function is now only at the bottom of the page and I have to scroll to get there. Additionally, when I type in an option to 'search' for an event, that doesn't exactly make it much easier since it shows all emails, events, etc.. I am frustrated that the search bar does honor event criteria that has been selected. For instance if I want to search for active events, I click on those fields and then the event title in the search bar, and it gives me every event with that title, not just active ones.
Hey @DeniseR97, thanks for your feedback! We've been working hard on this request and are very close to getting it finished and ready for everyone to use. Once it's released, I'll be updating this thread.
Hey @TimandPamelaM, thanks for your feedback! This is actually something we have in the works! Once it's available to all accounts, I'll be updating this thread.
I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for FINALLY adding a "search" to help users find previous campaigns that were sent out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In all my years using CC, I am so happy it's FINALLY a feature you have added!!!! THANK YOU for listening to your users!!! :grinning::100::celebrate::clappinghands::clappinghands::clappinghands:
Hey @Marisa_M, I'm so glad you're enjoying the new search feature! It's something we've worked very hard on and couldn't have done it without the feedback from our users. Let us know if you see anything weird with the search or if you run into issues.
Thank you for implementing this - it works great!
Hey @SusanB26, thanks so much for sharing your idea and feedback! I totally agree that having the ability to search through your past campaigns would be a huge time saver and a lot of other users agree with you. We've actually been working on a feature that does just this and are now slowly rolling it out to our users. You may get it soon but keep an eye out on this thread as I'll be updating it as soon as we've released it to everyone.
Why does it seem that one cannot search via keyword or subject for previous posts? We have years of posts, and to have to search through the full list is such a waste of time. Please email me if I am missing something. Kind regards, Jack Newman Director of Communications Doane Academy
It's GREAT that you put the search feature in for us! Thank you very, very, VERY much!
Please create a campaign search function.
They did....finally!! When you click on Campaigns, there is a search box on the right side of the screen! So happy!!
@ManuelL3 I'm sorry that the ability to filter your emails by date is not the perfect feature to help you find your previous campaigns. I can tell you that we are actively working on a search feature for the campaigns. We don't have an exact ETA for when this will be released to you, but I think this will greatly improve your future searches!
Yes, very basic and necessary function - thank you for listening to us!
This feature has been added... I'm not sure why no one from Constant Contact has closed out this request?
Hey @Marisa_M, 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!
Thanks for clarifying @Chris__D
I'd like to make another suggestion, since it hasn't been rolled out completely just yet:Can you make it compatible in conjunction with the date filter? Currently, both the date filter and campaign search work independently of each other, so if you are searching for an email with a certain word, within a certain date range, you can't do that. It's one or the other - date range OR search term. It would be great if you could get them to operate together. Thanks in advance
glad this has been added, just posting here to stop getting emails when people reply.
This is desperately needed. I see a "Coming Soon" label... is it really in the works?
I'm going to switch back to MailChimp soon if they don't fix this
Hello @Clairebear,Yes! This feature is slowly but surely rolling out to all of our customers. I don't know exactly when your account will receive it but it is definitely coming.
Hi @JeffW467,Sorry about the notifications! If you want to remove yourself from them you should be able to unsubscribe yourself from the thread.
Hello @WilliamM0773!When you say location are you referring to the ability to search a specific folder for a campaign?As for date and subject you should have a filter by date option on your campaigns page and we are slowly rolling out the ability to search to all accounts.
Agreed. Search option would be very helpful.
Hey @LindaS087,I actually just checked your account and you do already have our search feature! If you go to campaigns in your account it should be located in the upper right hand side. Where were you looking for this feature?
While it's nice that this feature had finally been added, as Candace has so helpfully pointed out, let's just take a moment to consider it was proposed as coming soon two years ago. I posted a request about this almost four years ago.
Maybe coming soon is a subjective term. But he is my continuing issue with this: constant contact markets a communication tool for communication professionals. However, up until the company started rolling out this new feature there was essentially no communication at all about it even though it's pretty basic and had been requested by dozens of not hundreds of users.
Some of us might not still be irritated about this had CC simply given us anything but crickets about this for years.
Hello @LittoralSociety Thanks for the feedback about this as it can help us make changes to our processes in the future. I'm very sorry that you felt like there wasn't enough communication on this feature in the past. Would something like a notification on the post be helpful to you?
How is it 2019 and you still haven't added a search feature?!! We are a Chamber of Commerce who not only runs our own campaigns, but run on average 2 a day for our members, which means nearly 700 campaigns to search through! I can't spend all day looking for an eblast from six months back, but it would be so easy to search it by business name or event name, then copy it , update it and go! What's the hold up Constant Contact??
They added the search option a while ago. If you go to Campaigns, there is a search bar right at the top. Good luck!
