Social Media Icons

Social Media Icons

Please add more options for social media such as an RSS feed (blog) and Houzz (interior design specific).  In addition, please "lock in" the social media icons per email campaign.  For example, I create email campaign 1 and set up the social media icons.  Then I create email campaign 2 with the social media icons linking to different social sites.  As soon as I save the social media profile for email 2 it changes the social media links in email 1.  This is VERY frustrating as we have 6 different brands that we send emails out for and we cannot use our email templates due to this issue. 

 

We tried to create our own social media icons by using images however, we cannot place more that two images side by side like we could in the old interface.  Also, please put back the ability to add a table into the new user interface - you took away this feature!  Having the ability to add a table would allow me a workaround to my first issue.  UGH!  Very frustrating - this is making us re-consider our decision to use Constant Contact for our email campaigns.

I agree with the original poster. Our organization has more than one Facebook page, and more than one YouTube channel. There is no way to link to more than one, and when users think they have changed the link in one email, someone changes it in another email, and it gets changed in all of them. This is awful.

YES! We are having the exact same problem. This is NOT a feature, it is a bug!!!

Yelp and Better Business Bureau should be added to Social Media for people to click on links and give us a review right there instead of going to the website and looking up our company name. When it can simply just be on Constant Contact

For the social media buttons, it would be nice if you guys could add the Yelp button as well.

New editor is extremely disappointing. Absolutely need user determined font styles available. Having to start from scratch each time is unacceptable. Also noticed that Flickr is not available in the social media bar which is not OK.

@heirloom_flowersThanks for the feedback.

 

Can you tell me a little bit more about what you mean by "user determined font styles". Would you like to see more font options than there are currently? Also, there is the ability to "Copy" a previously sent email so you don't have to start from scratch each time. You can do this by clicking the "Actions" dropdown on the campaigns page and choosing "Copy".

The new editing options are so limited, including the ridiculously small selection of social media icons - please add the ones requested by other commentors as well as an email icon and a link icon. I also have tried to add additional icons via the image tool, and was also aggravated that only two side-by-side can be created.

 

The inability to add custom fonts is very frustrating. Typefaces are a large part of any organization's branding. Please bring back this function.

 

Please add the table function again! This is needed for many reasons, the icon/link issue above as well as adding a box with a border. Not being able to add a border to individual sections of an email is irritating.

 

We have recently switched to CC from another email system and we are disappointed in the changes you've made.

Looking for social buttons for tumblr and flickr to add to our emails.

Thanks,

Also frustrated by this change. No provision for Houzz or Yelp. I had used tables on the previous version and added them manually. Now I can only create links from the words HOUZZ and YELP which looks unprofessional.

 

There's a lot of lost user functionality in the new email tool. I am frustrated and regret the "upgrade."
