Hello @MitchMenchaca and @Clique_Marketing,

 

We do not have an archive page anymore on the new user experience. Instead, we have the option for grabbing a short URL for each of your email campaigns. You can find the URL under the “Actions” drop down menu on the right hand side of any sent email. Once you click on the option for “Short URL,” you can copy that link and paste into your website or anywhere else you would like to share it.

 

This has been a customer request; we do have something coming out soon to replace email archive. We will let you know when it is available in the new user experience!

Thank you for your response, Brittany_W.

 

How would I go about updating this page then?

Our paying members rely on this archive (which is linked on our website homepage) to read past issues of our newsletters.

It is not acceptable that we will no longer be able to keep this archive up to date.

Hello @MitchMenchaca,

 

Unfortunately, we do not have a way of editing the old archive homepage any longer. It has been fully retired from our new user experience for the time being. As @Brittany_W stated above we have received many requests for the archive function to come back and we do have something coming soon. Also you can use the short URL's that we provide to you for every e-mail to create something like this directly on your website.

 

I hope this helps.

With all due respect, we are a small nonprofit and a 2 person office. We do not have the staff or finances to devote to the additional website maintenance that would be required to re-create the archive page that your company has done away with.

 

Please take into consideration that your customers come in all sizes and have unique needs.

 

Thank you both for your responses.

That's a extremely nice way of saying you screwed them without asking for input.

Brittany,

 

Can you please give us an idea of the timeframe for this feature?  

 

Thanks,

Hello @TammyR957. The new embeddable archive is now live in your account! This new widget will display up to 50 archived emails on your website. I'm including a few links below with more information about our new archive feature.

Well this stinks.

 

I just spent the last several hours copying the URLs of several years worth of newsletters so that I could build a new archive.

 

Everything before was much more intuitive and automated, now it's do it yourself or do without.

 

And since the links I copied into my own archive direct to a Constant Contact archive list, there's no certainty that that's not going away as well.

 

Whose bright idea was this? It sucks for the user.

Occasional Participant

Agreed that it is not acceptable. Hopefully the new solution will be as intuitive and user-friendly as the old archive process.

You may have misunderstood.

 

There ISN'T a new way that replaces the older page building tool.

 

Its been removed and is now up to you to build.

That sounds like a replacement. Anyway, wahtever they do, I have found a way to work with the short URL. Made the archive landing page the home for my latest emails. Users can click the "View Past Issues" icon to go to the older issues.
 
I wish they wouldn't tinker with what works and fix the buggy templates but what's a boy to do? I've got bigger battles to fight.
 
Good luck and thanks for the quick reply.

I can't find the archive page or a way to access the archive link to my campaign in the new design. Has the feature gone away or can you help me find it?

 

 

 

Heidi,

 

As stated before in this thread, the feature is completely gone. CC says they are working on something to replace it.

 

It remains to be seen when this replacement will be launched.

 

In the meantime, you cannot update your archive homepage through CC.

"something coming out soon to replace email archive".

 

Its been my personal experience that soon doesn't mean they same to CTCT as it does to the rest of the world.  

 

The under and over is 6 months.  I'm taking the over .

Read the third entry in this thread.  It's been retired.
