Announcing our brand new Campaign Builder!

Add Search Option to Campaigns

It would be extremely helpful if I could type a couple words to search for in past campaigns. Then I could easily locate the different emails we have used to market past events we are repeating. Thanks!

Well, it is hard if the person overseeing the broadcasts leaves the company, the new person does not have those emails.  CC is used for various different purposes by various different companies and individuals.  They all have different needs.  Also, it is impossible to use the CC "Copy" feature from a sent email.  Our emails are all custom code and several of our clients resend the same or very similar ads, it is easiest if we copy the old one and just modify as needed rather than recreate from scratch.  I know we can grab the custom code from the email as well, but it isn't always clean/unaltered by CC as the copy is, and again the person recreating the broadcast may not have the sent email to grab the code from.  We send on average 28 broadcasts a week, after 3 months, that is a lot of broadcasts to sift through; we have been using CC for almost 2 years, an even larger number to sift through...  If there was a way to sort the broadcasts by date and time sent, that would be very helpful, but currently the sort is by date/time last modified, that isn't helpful at all.  The new calendar option is somewhat helpful.  But, it is baffling why the search option is so difficult to implement given that this exact search option is available on the Reporting page...

I would like a way to search for certain campaigns I did by title. Currently i have to scroll through a lot of pages just to find the campaign i want to reuse and search for it

Please give a search option to find campaign emails by key word. Your alpha/date modified does not always work. So much easier by key word.

If you could include an option for the organizer (me) to write a note or comment on the Registrant Details page, that would be helpful. An example of when I would use this is if they paid me in Cash or a cheque hand delivered OR if they have a specific need that they forgot to include when then signed up, etc. This would be a very helpful feature. ALSO - Please please please get a way to search events!! :smileyface: Thank you and have a lovely day!

Somehow along the way this great tool has been becoming really irritating. Emails, and events are not in order according to the date. Emails that have been sent and events that are over are still on the page 1 and don't go to the bottom. I can't search for an event, or an email, or anything. There is no way to search. Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I could scream. I have been using CC for years and there used to be a sort of order. Not anymore. Since I was forced to adopt the new dashboard things don't make sense.

The screen to create an email for event attendees offered only three examples (non-applicable) or I could create one from scratch. There are other emails I prefer to use in my history. I should be able to search my history for a template.

The Chimp offers this, I would think that alone would be reason for CC to do so as well.

This would be faster and easier than having to scroll through pages of prior campaigns or months of the calendar.

I'm just so confused about why there is still not a search function for email and event campaigns? This seems to be a very standard feature and the fact that users are still waiting for this is dumbfounding.
