Sadly we learned that you just removed the Google Analytics option from the new generation application. This was a great way for us to track how each of our email marketing campaigns are performing and impacting traffic acquisition in our Google Analytics account. Please bring it back!
I can't link my emails to my google analytics account anymore? Is this coming back?
PLEASE BRING GOOGLE ANALYTICS BACK!!!
After spending time browsing new templates and developing a new template using the new editor, I learned that there is no Analytics tracking in the new editor. As instructed by support, I laboriously added UTMs manually to every single link in my email and after sending saw that ALL of them were stripped.I hate wasting my time, (and you should hate that you cause me to waste my time) so having already spent much of it on that - I decided to keep working on it so I can get it out and use the UTMs instead.
Now, thanks to CC, all of my traffic coming from CC will be distorted and misrepresented in Google Analytics as direct and with no insight. If you're going to release something that you are trying to catch up to the competition with, at least make sure it is ready for prime time. People expect to gain features with a new release or iteration, not take steps back. So we have a choice - use the same tired editor from 10 years ago and be able to track our web site traffic or use the new more modern editor with no insight.
The amount of time spent could have been used to get up and running with a competitor with an actualy valuable/modern feature set who knows what they are doing and who does it well. Get it together CC.
