Calendar

0 Votes

My name is Nancy Auslander, and I have many suggestions/requests for updating Constant Contact (CC) & making it easier for users & subscribers:

 

  1. Please allow users to drag/drop reschedule an email. Having to unschedule and reschedule every time is a pain, and frankly, time-consuming.
  2. In addition, the TIME an email is schedule to go out should also be displayed on the calender instead of having to click on it.
  3. When scheduling an email, it would be helpful to have the option to send it up to 3 times (different dates/times), and not just to non-openers. We have older subscribers who need lots of prodding, and younger subscribers who don't pay attention unless we bombard them with the same info several times before they take action. It doesn't matter how far in advance we let them know, they will wait until the last minute (or later) to act.
  4. When you log into CC, to see your calendar of scheduled emails, you have to either click VIEW ALL, or click on the Campaigns tab to find the Calendar. In addition to seeing the VIEW ALL link, you should be displaying a VIEW CALENDAR link. 
  5. Allow SEARCH from the Calendar View.
  6. Please provide a self-populating form that we can send to our subscribers giving them the option to opt in/out of our lists. We have a lot of long-time subscribers who may want to reduce their incoming email, or get subscribe to additional areas of interest.

Thanks for reading this - I hope your developers can find ways to make any/some/all of these suggestions work. I've worked with developers before, and know these things take time, but I hope you can keep me posted.

I forgot something - The Campaigns tab at the top should be a pull-down menu so you can choose between LIST and CALENDAR views without having to wait for a page to load.

Hi @CAI-AZ

 

The good news is a lot of your feedback points are actually feature requests we are in the process of collecting feedback on. Here are the matching idea threads: 

 

1. rescheduling campaigns on the calendar view

2. displaying scheduled time on calendar

3. scheduling the same campaign multiple times

4. making the calendar your default view

 

We recommend sharing your need for them directly on their idea threads so you may be properly kept up to date on their status. You also mentioned wanting a form to opt in/out of lists, does the current update profile form available help fit your needs? As for searching on the calendar view we would be happy to continue collecting feedback and use cases through this thread.

Thank you for taking the time to post in the Community. We haven't heard back from you so we are going to close this idea. This doesn't mean that we aren't listening to your feedback! Please feel free to comment or vote on any of the other open ideas to let us know what you would like to see.

1. Please add a search bar to the Calendar

2. Please make the calendar more dynamic - drag & drop to reschedule

3. Please make the calendar exportable - would make the calendar importable into my work calendar (Outlook)

4. Please make it possible to schedule an email to go out more than once without having to copy a scheduled email. I always send an email at least 3 times (our audience does not heed Calls to Action until AFTER the last minute).
