I guess this would be similar to the mail merge function in Word. I thought I had it figured out but am running into some issues and could use some help or advice. Basically I need to send 50 clients the same email which contains a hyperlink to take an assessment, however each client has a unique password that needs to be included with the email. I thought I could create a custom field under each contact named "Password" then enter the password in that field. Then in the campaign/email editor, I tried inserting Contact Details, Password, but when I go to preview it, instead of showing the password, it just reads the tile of the field name, "Password". If I enter any one of the other Contact Details fields like email, address, etc., when I preview it that contacts email, address, etc. shows up. But if I ask it to show my custom field's data, it just shows the field name. Does Constant Contact have a protection system in place to prevent one of the fields showing text it considers giberish or something? Because the passwords being issued are totally random assortment of letters and numbers which I have no control over. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I think I already know the answer to my question, but was going to check around anyways. Does Constant Contact have, or will possibly have in future product development, the ability to build multi-layered campaigns? What I mean by that is a campaign which consists of a multiple emails which are sent at predetermined times and have follow-up emails which are triggered to initiate when certain hyperlinks are clicked on? For example, we want to do an 8-week series of emails where each week a different set of content is sent out. Then based on who opens those emails or clicks on the links within them, those individuals are sent reminder or follow-up thank you emails. We used to use InfusionSoft which had this campaign builder capability where you could construct all these 8 emails and their follow-up sequences with timers, and simply set the whole thing to run itself. However we switched to Constant Contact since we had nothing but problems with InfusionSoft. We are extremely happy with Constant Contact so far, and although I do understand it isn't as complex are nearly the same product InfusionSoft is, just wondering if Constant Contact has something similar or has plans for anything like this in the future. Thanks!
