It is phenomenally important to search prior campaigns. I put out a newsletter with bios of guests who will be on my radio show that runs once a week. This is where I used to be able to find people I have previously interviewed who I want to schedule again or from whom I want to seek new information. Without this function, I am unable to capture the value of my history. If other distribution systems offer this feature, I will have to consider moving to one of them. Jeanne
Need a search function badly! You have to rely on users naming campaigns correctly/uniformly. Really disappointing after using CC for so many years that they don't see this as a need and in the age of technology, it's a no brainer. Shame on CC for not responding to this need that is so simple.
It would be great if you could add a search option so you can enter a keyword and search past campaigns. Mail Chimp has this capability and this is one of the main reasons we are looking at moving to Mail Chimp from Constant Contact...it is such a pain for new staff to scroll through each page of past campaigns trying to find a previous campaign to copy and use for the future. Would reduce a lot of wasted time. Thanks!
ATTENTION ALL “SEARCH FUNCTION” SEEKERS:
THE CHATROOM HAS CLEARLY NOT GIVEN US ANYTHING: NO SEARCH FUNCTION, AND NO REACTION AT ALL, REALLY.
IT’S TIME TO GO TO HIGHER LEVEL:
PLEASE JOIN ME AND SEND EMAIL TO: FEEDBACK@CONSTANTCONTACT.COM WITH FOLLOWING TEXT (copy and paste below, or add your own words)
“WE ARE APPALLED AT CC’S INABILITY TO PROVIDE ONE OF THE MOST BASIC FUNCTIONS OF ALL: SEARCH FUNCTION WITHIN THE CAMPAIGNS TAB.
WHAT’S WORSE, WE ARE APPALLED AT THE LACK OF RESPONSE AND LACK OF CARING FOR CUSTOMERS BY CC’S LEADERSHIP TEAMS.
WE DEMAND A RESPONSE NOW!
WE DO NOT NEED ANY SCRIPTED RESPONSE.
WE NEED AN ACTUAL RESPONSE FROM CC LEADERSHIP, A RESPONSE THAT WILL GUARANTEE THAT A “SEARCH FUNCTION” WILL BE INSTALLED IN THE CAMPAIGNS TAB NO LATER THAN APRIL 30, 2018.
IF THIS DEADLINE IS NOT MET. I, UNDERSIGNED CURRENT CC MEMBER, WILL TAKE MY HARD EARNED DOLLARS ELSEWHERE!”

THIS HAS BEEN A LONGSTANDING ISSUE, WITHOUT RESPONSE OR RESOLUTION FROM CC.
PLEASE REVIEW MY RESPONSE TO COMPANY, AND JOIN IN THIS CAMPAIGN TO FORCE A SOLUTION NOW!
SUBJECT: Possible short term work around until a better search tool is available!
Given the lack of response by CC to most suggestions - what I have discovered was probably put in without any great intention:
1. Click on Campaigns on the top menu; then next to the orange "Create" button is an icon that will display your "Marketing Calendar View";
2. Use the navigation next to the displayed month and year to go back to the period of time you wish to search;
3. Clickable links to all your emails are there on the calendar; if you are using Chrome or IE (not sure about Firefox or Safari) Press Ctrl+F to open a find window; enter something that you know is in the title of the email you are looking for and you might get lucky; click the email you want;
4. In the popup window click "More Details";
5. On the email page click more actions;
6. Use whichever one you need.
I like the "Share URL" because now you have a direct pipeline to that email for future use. While this is not exactly the "Search" feature we have all been wishing for, at least this tool make the search a little easier.
Again - I am pretty much cynical about most changes by CC, but this one seems to actually help. Let's see how long it is available.
BTW: I am with Mark Brandsma. CC leadership seems to be on "Cruise Control". I have looked at alternatives to CC, and unfortunately I have found none that accomplishes all the things we need in our business. I really believe that CC leadership could care less about current customers. They are looking for pie in the sky.
I see countless posts about it dating back years and it seems like something that should be relatively easy to fix.
Under the Campaigns tab you are able to sort by Status on the left, or by 'Old to New' or 'New to Old' on the top right.
Were there different sort options you were looking for specifically?
