Heartily agree with both suggestions. If you are searching for a particular campaign, click in the email and then go back, you've lost your place in your email search! Very frustrating if you forget to file an email and have a lot of email volume.
It would be nice if there was a search field in the campaigns section. I send a lot of emails and often copy a previous one but to have to scroll to find one sent a year a go is a pain!
Also, you really should be able to edit the name of an email after it has been sent. I like to keep my emails organized by date and if I do copy one and forget to change the name it sucks to have 2 named the same.
Yes! A search function would solve all my issues. We have many event registrations that I need to edit and adjust from time to time. But they all begin with the same word that begins with W. So I have been sorting the list from either A-Z or Z-A to try to get to a couple of particular events. When I choose my folder, a list comes up with a button to "load more campains". I can click this button once and get more, then again to get more, but the third time, it says "campaigns loading" forever.
Under Constant Contact Support's instruction, I tried 2 other browsers (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox) and I have the same issue. I'm seriously considering switching to SurveyMonkey for event registrations.
It would be great if there was an option to search emails. We send so many that we copy from different points in years past and right now the only way to find an old email is to go page by page.
In addition, please bring the email thumbnail previews back. Seeing a thumbnail next to emailst was SO helpful just from a visual standpoint to see what the content of the message was/what the message looked like.
Yes yes yes!
Is there a better way that we have to serch for old emails with out going through all of them...ugh
This has been a request since I started using CC six years ago. I now have 895 Sent emails. Could there be any more basic feature request?
Yes, please consider a SEARCH function so we can easily find past emails.
Are you planning on creating a search function for the e-mail section? We have over 1,300 e-mails created and it would be such a huge benefit to be able to search to find the one I'd like to copy. I just had a request for an e-mail sent back in 2013 and had to scroll through 53 pages trying to find it. Thanks!
I second this comment, your new format is beyond frustrating, at least give us the option of a search button on the top. Not cool CC, might be time to switch to another program.
This is crazy. This topic is 3 years old. And this is the VERY BASIC funciont that needed to be there from the very beginning!
Apparently I'm not the only one would would really like a SEARCH function - I have to sort through pages and pages of past emails, it's very time consuming!
It is only the most-voted feature suggestion in the history of the Community forums. It makes me doubt how faithfully Constant Contact prioritizes system designs/enhancements based on Community input, as they say.
I am having the smae problem. Also there should be a search for old emails
I hear ya! But I've complained since this new version came in and no listens at C.C. and I don't think they care. Maybe we should call them everyday until they bring back the old version!
Edit: I have discovered the "Folders" option. A search bar would still be extremely helpful.
I love using Constant Contact. I send out about 1-3 emails to over 7000 clients a day. Sometimes we re-send the same campaign more than once (can be more than 10+ times as well). Only issue is when I do this I have to create a new campaign name when I really just want to keep it the same. This now creates more campaigns when I am fine with having just that one. There should be a "Copy" button and a "Replicate" button. "Copy" so that I can use the same template design but change the name and information and "Replicate" button to keep the name the same and edit whatever info needs to be edited.
Also to make it easier for everyone, there should be a "search" bar for your campaigns. I end up having so many due to the last issue that it can take me up to 15 minutes to find a signle campaign.
Hope to see these changes soon!
Full agree. Also, it's exceptionally annoying to have to scroll through campaigns because clicking the forward arrow keeps you at the bottom of the screen/page, so you have to scroll up again to view the next page in order.
