Choose what screen comes up after login

I just wanted to share that the Recent Emails Page is much more annoying than an assist.. when it goes there by default instead of to ALL Emails.. We typically have several email campaigns being prepared in advance and I ALWAYS have go to the View All Emails.. is there any way to make this the default? or do away with that screen altogether? 

 

Appreciate You Listening!

This screen is not terribly useful for us and is incredibly annoying. I would rather go to the full featured page and use whatever features I need than constantly have to skip by this annoying page which only has limited functionality. Help! Make it go away!!

Hi @MacEgel. I'm sorry to hear that the new dashboard isn't useful for you. What could make this work better?

Hello Caitlin:

When I am working on CC I often need to switch back and forth between the current email and sent documents or drafts. I work intently and quickly, and typically scroll down the list on the My Campaigns page for more recent documents, use the lists in my Folders for specific searches, or go to the calendar or general search when necessary. Most of this I cannot accomplish from the Most Recent Campaigns page- and I hit this blasted page every time I must leave my current project. It is disruptive of my workflow and for some reason incredibly annoying. You would laugh if you were in the office where I work- every time I hit the new page it seems to elicit an audible howl of frustration. And to add insult to injury, it has now apparently become the landing page when one logs in! Ugh. I suppose that I will eventually get used to dealing with this useless thing, but would be delighted if CC would allow let me to opt out of it, or move it elsewhere where it will not get in the way.

I have never complained about anything in years of using CC, but this one is a lulu. Please make it go away.

Thank you,

Cliff

Thank you for clarifying. I can see how going to a chosen page upon login would be ideal so you can get what you need right away. I'll open this up for voting.

I don't like the new page that loads when I log in to Constant Contact. Is there a way to make it load the CAMPAIGNS view instead of the MOST RECENT CAMPAIGNS view?

Once I log into Constant Contact, I'd like it to open to the page of my choice, for example the Folders page so I can go directly to my Templates folder instead of having to click onto All Campaigns.

Please, please, please stop jumping to Campaigns after login.  Since you log people out WAY TOO SOON AND TOO FREQUENTLY, at least take me back to the page I was working on (when for example, a phone call meant I didn't engage with the page for an hour and poof!  have to re-login and then click through to find the page I was working on.  This is extremely annoying and time-consuming.  At least have a setting for when you want to be logged out.  Many of us are working alone [no spies!]  and don't need to have such a short window in which to work.

Please stop displaying the dashboard when I sign in. I do NOT like it, and I'm tired of seeing the picture of that man on the right. I don't like this page at all. PLEASE go back to the default page being the constantcontact.com/campaign/campaigns/list instead. OR at least give us the option for which of the pages we prefer to be loaded. Thank you for listening.

Since latest user interface updates, i feel like it takes me several clicks to get to where I need to be - which is usually my draft folder. It would be great if I could create a bookmark that once logged in it takes me directly to my campaign drafts. The initial screen after login is generally useless to me.

Hi @BoardofTrade

 

What are the current steps you're taking to get to your draft folder?

Is there a way to make the calendar view the default? I use it 95% of the time and only occasionally need the List View. It would be great if every campaign I created I could see easily where it fell within my marketing schedule without having to click and wait to load after EVERY action.

Please also let the back button take us back to the page we came from, not some page you think we might like (a whole list of hundreds campaigns, for instance, instead of the folder of specific campaigns I had been in).  Please have your site designer watch people work and figure out how to make that easier, not five times more time-consuming.   And why can't users decide how long before auto-log out?   Working remotely means many people have no one else looking over their shoulders!  

 

Thank you.

Hi @JessicaL585

 

Thanks for sharing your feedback on this idea as well! As for adjusting the timing before being auto-logged out this is a feature request we are currently tracking. In fact we recommend sharing your need for it directly on that request thread.
