Thank you for reaching out to us through the Community. In order for you to print out the email campaign, you will need to have it sent out first. As a workaround you can either send a test email to the people who need to review it or you can live send it to yourself first and then go into the email campaign's stats page by clicking on the email campaign's title in the email campaigns listing page, and then clicking on the More option located to the top right of the email status page and select the Print option. For more information on how to print out the email campaign, please click here. Then, after it has been reviewed, you can make a copy of the email campaign and then schedule it out to your contacts. I do apologize for any inconvenience this process may cause. Please let us know if you need assistance with anything else!
This seems to be an unnecessarily clumsy work-around, especially since we used to be able to print an unsent email. Please consider putting that capability back in.
I'm sorry for the hassle with that workaround. Printed emails often do not accurately represent how a person will see the campaign in their actual email client. Side-bars, page-breaks, and other changes on the screen can cause rather large differences between email and printed format. For review purposes, it would be more accurate to send a test email to those whose approval is needed, so that they can see the same thing that your actual recipients will receive, rather than the printed version which may have different campaign widths, moved line-breaks, and of course page-breaks.
I'm adding you to the feature request for printing options on a draft email though, so that the design team knows that this is a feature that people are still wanting.
Thank you, Aaron. The reason I (and probably most folks) want the ability to print a draft is to give it to a proofreader, who can then mark up the paper copy for my review. I don't care about the formatting at that point.
You're very welcome! I can completely understand how helpful it would be to print a draft email for proofreading. So thank you for sharing this feedback. While we do not have a time estimate on when a feature like this will be available, Aaron did successfully submit your feedback to the appropriate teams. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with in the meantime.
