Translation to their response: I understand this is a needed feature that has been available for more than 10 years by our competitors. I understand that we may have offered something like it previously and took it away like we did the equally important ability to auto append UTMs when sending campaigns so you could track attribute website visits to you campaigns, and yes we realize that instead of innovating or even just doing the bare minimum to keep pace with our competitors in this very competitive market, we instead opt to ignore existing customers and the market and spend millions on tv advertising to burn and churn new customers instead of keep our existing ones happy. However, your feature request or idea is very important to us and we will pass it along to the devolpment/product teams. They only accept suggestion via a suggestion box which is dusty and covered in cobwebs and someone told me that when they opened it the last time 10 years ago it functioned similarly as blackholr sending valid/needed/competitive suggestions to an alternate universe. Since this request was first made in 2011 we have our top minds working on it in the alternate universe and we anticipate to have this released along with mich other desperately needed features (without simply applying a bandaid solution) in about 10 years, we appreciate your patience and masochistic loyalty. The end.

After spending time browsing new templates and developing a new template using the new editor, I learned that there is no Analytics tracking in the new editor. As instructed by support, I laboriously added UTMs manually to every single link in my email and after sending saw that ALL of them were stripped.I hate wasting my time, (and you should hate that you cause me to waste my time) so having already spent much of it on that - I decided to keep working on it so I can get it out and use the UTMs instead. Now, thanks to CC, all of my traffic coming from CC will be distorted and misrepresented in Google Analytics as direct and with no insight. If you're going to release something that you are trying to catch up to the competition with, at least make sure it is ready for prime time. People expect to gain features with a new release or iteration, not take steps back. So we have a choice - use the same tired editor from 10 years ago and be able to track our web site traffic or use the new more modern editor with no insight. The amount of time spent could have been used to get up and running with a competitor with an actualy valuable/modern feature set who knows what they are doing and who does it well. Get it together CC.
