New Idea

Email Lists & Event Registrations

Status: Voting Open
by CoriA5 on ‎02-14-2017 03:43 PM

I make event registrations quite a bit for camps, retreats, day events, etc. After I get into the event registration and make way down to the 'Allow registrants to join my contact list', it's quite often that I have forgotten to make an email list. It's easy to just come back to it later and select this list after I create it, but it would be so much easier for me to have the option to create a new email list at that moment, inside of the event registation. There have been a handful of times I've forgotten to go back and change it and then people are upset that they can't register because the system is showing they have already registered because I used an old event as a placeholder.

Sorting events by the date of the event

Status: Voting Open
by SimoneT3 on ‎07-08-2016 12:40 PM

I would like to have the ability to sort my events by the newest to oldest based on the date they are occuring rather than the date they were created. Can this option be added to the sorting options?

Event registration and emails

Few issues and suggestions...

 

1.

Emailing registrants

  • Why aren't the usual templates available? When the event is over, I'd like to send a thank-you using the "card" template, which I can include polls. The answers to these polls should show up on the event dashboard.
  • There should be a much simpler way to make a contact list of the registrants (outside of the "allow registrants to join my contact list" feature). I do not have the time to download the csv and upload it and add the contacts and make the list. It would save a lot of time and unneccesary excel spreadsheets cluttering my files.
2.

"Add to Calendar"

  • The "Add to calendar" button" should not show up (or be replaced by "Please register to add to calendar") on registration page until registrant has submitted their registration form. Our online webinar login and password is in the calendar event notes.
  • When you click "Add to calendar", for online events, the URL no longer shows up under "Location" in the outlook event. It used to, but now there's nothing there.
3.The text in the confirmation message (that shows up after registrant submits) should be editable. It should have a tool bar like the one for this post so we can emphasize the next steps with styling.
4.The confirmation email looks really outdated and messy. It would make sense that it at least is the same theme as the rest of the event campaign. Ideally, I'd like to be able to edit it just as I am able to edit the invitation.
5.Events in general -- please add a "category" feature!! that way we can categorize events. Like all my online webinars would be in one spot, and all my conferences in another, etc...

 

Thank you!

Archive

What happened to the ability to create and update an archive list of campaigns that I could add to my website in the form of a link. See example: http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs043/1102175106138/archive/1102739080973.html Gerard Lupien

When a registration page is created for a multiple date program series allowing 1x sign up for the entire series with ability to select programs they are attending, currently the start/end date needs to span from the 1st date of the series to the date of the last program in that series. Ex. 4 programs between 1/25/16-4/5/16 The needs are: Ability to individually enter each date instead of a span to showcase all dates, and/or ability to remove the add to calendar feature from the registration page (it can be removed from the landing page but still visible on registration page. If selected from the registration page it will add the programs to the attendees calendar on every date within the span of dates you have entered in start/end date).

Customize Event

It would be very helpful to be able to change the format of the registration page... ie move sections around. For example, the section where people choose the items they would like to purchase (which is under settings not registration) falls at the very bottom of the registration page. I would like to add a few comments below this section such as Questions or Cancellations contact info. Unfortunately, that is not an option so I use fields ABOVE the fee section to include information which should fall at the end. Please allow us to move the sections in the final format or at least choose the order they fall in like you do in the form fields section.

Status: Voting Open

I would like to the Event Management System be able to establish a Waiting List in the order that respondents reply when the event max is reached or the event is closed. This list could be accessed to find replacements when someone cancels or if the venue is expanded because of an overwhelming response. Without knowing how many have tried to register and couldn't it is hard to know how successful the event actually was.

Need warning about plus campaigns

Status: Voting Open
by BrennaF9 on ‎10-25-2016 04:46 PM

I went through the process of creating a survey, but not until I spent time working on it did I realize you needed to pay extra - I think it would be beneficial to include this information at the beginning, as it was incredibly confusing and frustrating. Then, when I clicked the link to learn more about the costs, etc., the site continued to time out...so after an hour, I'm still not sure if it's part of the tool I can use or how much it's going to cost.

Dear Constant Contact, In the future, I'd like to suggest that the company look into allowing subscribers to edit the registration page. Currently, the CSVANW is having a youth event, which youth are asked to submit an application. However, the CC registration page has a button that says, "Register," which may be confusing to applicants. I just called your help line and I understand there is no way to change that. I hope that in the future there could be a way to change that. Sincerely, Kim Baca Marketing & Communications Consultant

Autoresponder Emails

Status: Voting Open
by MarjorieY2 on ‎10-17-2016 09:38 AM
It appears impossible to copy the content of an Autoresponder Email so that it can be used as a regular email. I was told by Constant Contact Chat that I would have to create a new email; from scratch. Very Inconvenient!
Status: Voting Open

It would be incredibly useful to allow document links or URL links on the registration page. If I have an additional document which I would like people to access when they register (such as an itinerary), I need to be able to do that on the registration page RATHER than the invitation page. I have found people don't want to go back out to the email invitation after they have registered to get documents. They would rather have that option on the registration page.

Search Functionality --Registrants

Status: Voting Open
by All Star on ‎10-08-2015 06:50 PM

I've asked for this many times before:

 

Create a functionality that allows us to search within all our event registrations for registrants. I get requests all the time: "I attended one of your programs, but I don't know when or who the speaker was. Can you send me a certificate?"

 

I have to guess what they attended, or the general time of year they attended, etc., and then open each event to search for them.

 

Please add this!

Changes to how CC works

You should not have changed the way the archive works or deleted any archived emails. If you have to refer users to their "webmaster" to get help implementing the archive on their web page, then you've really screwed the pooch.

Event Registration - edit registrations

Status: Voting Open
by on ‎07-18-2014 01:10 PM

Please provide functionality for registrants to edit thier own registrations after they have submitted them. IT is time consuming to handle that task on an administrative end and most guests don't make the effort to email me to do it for them.

Status: Voting Open

We have an annual conference, and also offer pre-conference workshops as "Items".  It would be more helpful on the Registrant List for me to see what they signed up for than the date/time of the registration.  I have to go into each persons details to see whether they paid regular vs. student rate, and whether they just signed up for the conference or also selected pre-con workshops.

I am using Constant Contact for registrations for a church Summer Camp. We need separate registrations for each camper. We are having a problem with parents who are trying to register more than one child. The limit of one registration per one email address is VERY FRUSTRATING!! There should be a way to allow the same email to register more than one participant for an event. Please call me if you need clarification on my problem:**Removed By Moderator**. Thank you!!

Facebook Ad

Status: Voting Open
by GlennP83989 on ‎08-11-2016 11:17 AM

I just went through the process of creating a facebook ad to coordinate with a CC email compaign. I discovered two things that we're not clearly communicated when I started: 1) I need to have a FB business page in order to do the FB ad via Constant Contact (fortunately, I do have a FB business page); and 2) that AFTER the ad is completed it will then show my FB profile image and sponsoring name of business. However, I will never see or get to actually test the FB ad before or after it's sent out. 

To me, this is ridiculous. When the FB support person answered my question "why?", I was told that I wouldn't want to waste 1 of my 10,000 ad postings on myself. Really? Of course I would! Why should I create and pay for an ad the final version of which I cannot even see!!

 

You guys should correct this.

Could you please create a waiting list option for events with an area to include a custom message saying that "this session/event is currently full. Please click here if you would like to receive notice of changes in availability openings or additionally scheduled sessions/similar events. It would be good to know who is wanting to register after an event is closed. Perhaps that information can be generated by looking at who is clicking on the registration links from the event announcement. Thank you!

Send Immediatly

Status: Voting Open
by Kmozian on ‎08-28-2014 06:34 PM

It's frustrating that I only have one welcome message. I'm running a campaign to download an e-book, but they won't get an immediate email with the download link. And I don't want everyone who signs up for my newsletter to get the e-book only a very specific list. Without this ability the Autoresponder feature is not fully built out.

Cutomized Donation Campaigns

Status: Voting Open
by All Star on ‎08-08-2016 12:39 PM

Our organization is a small nonprofit that looks to save wherever we can! It seems crazy to be paying for separate donation pages, when we pay to have that as a featuer in our CC account. However, we're not able to use the CC donation pages because of the severely limited custom options. By forcing the page to show how much money is raised (solely online) our donors wouldn't see the checks, cash, or matching money that's come in, and therefore our totals would always be off. We also have multiple programs--listing a designation for a gift is not an outdated or abnormal request. Why isn't there an option to add additional fields? Similarly, we update all our contact information through donations...we need to be able to ask for a person's address. 

 

We love the modern and simple look of the CC donation campaign, but we need more options!!
