When talking with a rep today about another issue, she mentioned that CC is planning to eventually roll out the simpler beta editor as the primary editor.
I looked at the simple editor today and noticed that there is no access to html when designing the email. If you transition to the simpler editor, Please, Please, Please leave the html accessibility from the editor.
For those of us who know html, we add lots of little tweaks to improve the look of our emails in terms of the email purpose. For example, I create and send volunteer schedules using CC. Because of the html editor, I am able to add text decorations that aren't available in the editor (ex. ), add background colors to specific table rows and cells (not available in the editor), change line-height parameters (not available in the editor), and use font sizes that aren't available in the editor (ex. 13pt, 15pt, etc.) I'm also able to do a number of other things on the fly that just aren't available in the editor features.
The following examples show how we notify our volunteers from week to week. Notice how the html tweaks mentioned above allow people reading the email to know what tasks have already been completed, which ones are coming up in the week ahead, and which ones will happen in the future:
Thanks very much for taking this into consideration!!
