update preferences

Can our email subscribers update their preferences without clicking on unsubscribe or receiving additional emails? The system to update profile is cumbersome, time consuming and not intuitive. 


Hi @CPW1977,


Thanks for your feedback about this, and I will forward it to our developers. Currently, the only way for a contact to update his/her preferences is to click on the Update Profile link in the footer of your email campaign:




Make sure it's turned on in the Email Footer section of My Settings, and that you customize it so it's easy for your contacts to change their preferences. I hope this helps!

Hi Nichelle,


Yes, thank you.  It is turned on for our emails, but I have to say that this is NOT an easy way for people to update their preferences.  It is very round-a-bout. Having to click it and then confirm their email and then open another email, that is very time consuming.  It should be more user-friendly. A simple link for update preferences would be better.  They can do so more immediately via the unsubscribe but what organization/company wants to direct their readership towards an unsubscribe link??


Thank you, I hope this will encourage an improved option.
