Include Google Analytics integration for campaigns

Sadly we learned that you just removed the Google Analytics option from the new generation application. This was a great way for us to track how each of our email marketing campaigns are performing and impacting traffic acquisition in our Google Analytics account. Please bring it back!

Please bring back Google Analyticsto the new editor. The old versions are complicated and glitchy, the new version are user friendly and more pleasing aesthetic(s)..but NO GA. Feels like a lose-lose situation right now...

Just put hours into creating a new email template for our library using the new editor only to find out it doesn't support GA!  How disappointing - please listen to your customers and add it back in!

Could you recommend another service provider that provides GA? Thanks!

Removing the Google Analytics tagging capability has made it extremely hard for me to justify our email campaigns.  We hope that you bring it back to the email design editor.  For now we are shopping new email providers that will provide this for us.

Hi All, In the second generation editor, I could assign a Google Analytics Campaign Name with one step. Why did Constant Contact think it was a good idea to make that process so much more cumbersome with the new email editor (requiring URL-by-URL steps via the GA Campaign URL Builder)? Constant Contact, please accelerate a fix for this so we can use the same one-step GA Campaign Name assignment that we had in the 2nd gen email editor.

Please bring this back. It allowed users on my team to create tracking without having to be trained in Google Analytics. Thanks!

Or at least tell us if you ever will... For a company that is always suggesting better ways for your customers to communicate to their customers - you sure don't follow your own advice!

Would be very useful to have Google Analytics automated UTM tracking implemented to the 3GE template. Thanks!

Please bring this feature back. It seems almost like stepping back in time to remove it in the newest editor.

Yet another fail of the 3rd gen editor. Used to be so easy to add Google Analytics (tick a box). Now I have to add UTM code to each link. Please bring back that box!

Being able to enter a campaign name for Google analytics in a single bar made organizing tracking from our emails super simple. Now that it is gone, this is an absolute pain! Please bring this function back!

I agree! This is a huge loss in the new editor. Royal pain to have to use the URL Builder for every single link.

Removed Google analytics and didn't tell anyone?  And what is the whole point of email marketing?

Tracking traffic and clicks to the website- but CC didn't think that was an important feature now?

The "work around" is for me to add tracking to every link in the newsletter. This makes no sense at all.

 

They should not have released new editor without this feature and now they say they "may" add it back.

When?

It is the end of 2018 and I see that people have been asking for this for 2 years!!

I agree we need the Google Analytics tracking. It was so simple with the other editor, and now with the 'new and improved editor' it's a hassle. Please, this is a pretty basic request. Thanks.

Any plans on adding Google Analytics tracking back into the 3rd Gen editor? It's essential to evaluating the efficacy of campaigns and justifying the expense of your product.
