Display campaign date in addition to subject line when archiving

0 Votes

Hi, I just upgraded $5/month to add the newsletter archive widget to my account, so that I can display our last 20 newsletters. Come to find out that the date is not displayed and we use the same subject line each week (we customize our pre-header.)

 

Survey Monkey's widget is perfect, and I was hoping ours could like like this.

 

But instead, our newsletters are displayed in a bulleted list, only with subject line displayed.

Hi @trinitysborg

 

Thanks for sharing this feedback with us! While we can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on the idea, we do want to indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and are continuing to collect both requests along with use case examples. In the meantime we recommend the following workarounds:

 

  • Add the Send date or desired date to the subject line before sending and archiving the campaign.
  • If the campaign has already been sent: make a copy of the campaign, add the sent date to the subject line, live send the email to a list with only your email, then archive that email.

Thank you Frankie for this suggestion/workaround. I tried this, but it's not ideal.

 

The archive list seems to appear in order of sent date. Is that correct? I would want the most recent campaign to appear first, at the top. But using this method, a campaign from a few weeks ago, just by adding the sent date to the subject line, would appear at the top. See our archive page, under construction.

Hi @trinitysborg

 

Thanks for following up with us on this! Emails actually display on your website by the date that you add them to the archive, with the most recent displaying at the top of the list. Being able to change the order of archived campaigns is actually a feature request with a thread of its own.
