Email Marketing Product Update: Improved ‘My Emails’ Page and more

Here’s a look at the latest updates and enhancements that recently went live in our Email Marketing product.

Improved My Emails page

We heard you loud and clear that you wanted folders to help stay organized and on top of all of your emails, so we’ve improved the My Emails page to give you just that. While we were at it, we added more functionality to the page to help you work faster and more efficiently. Here’s what you can do with the improved My Emails Page:

  • Create folders. You can now drag and drop emails into custom folders that you create.
  • Switch views. You can switch between the traditional list view and a new thumbnail view of your emails.
  • Access your reports. See your open rates for emails you’ve sent right from the My Emails page, and get one click access to full report for that email.

More new email templates

Earlier in the month, we released another batch of brand new templates that you can customize to match your brand, no matter what industry you are in. You can find them all by selecting “Show More” from the “Type” menu of the left-side of the Template Picker and then clicking “New.”

Not only do these templates look great, but it’s incredibly easy to customize them to match your brand or industry. Just drop in your logo, change the colors, and add in your images and content.

We’ve also designed these templates to look great on mobile. Now your customers get a great-looking email, even if they are reading it on-the-go from their smartphone.

If you’re in need of some inspiration for an email you’re working on, or just want to see some of the great things our customers are doing with our new templates, check out this album we’ve created on our Facebook Page – and keep an eye out for more new templates soon!

Many of our improvements are based on your feedback and we want you to keep it coming! Have a suggestion or idea how we can improve our products? Submit it here!

  1. This feature is totally terrific! There is one issue the unfiled feature is not working. I am attempting to put all of my emails in folders, but when I select the unfiled option it lists everything. If the unfiled feature worked my life would be 100% easier. Thank you

  2. Hi Dave, That’s great news about the folders for organizing hundreds of emails. I have a question about the folders. Once I move an email from my ‘all’ selection into a folder, it seems to keep a copy of that in email in all whereby what I’m really doing is creating a copy for my folder. Is there a way to move the original without having the duplicate copy?

    • Jeanne – thanks for reading. The “All” folder will keep all of your emails – to give you a quick view of everything. You will see your email in both the “All” folder and the folder you created.

    I was disappointed there were no newsletter templates with Merry Christmas. I resented the restriction forcing political correctness.

  4. When will these options be live? My account hasn’t converted to show these features.

  6. I went into CC this morning; saw the change in My Emails, added folders and moved emails into them. Then I got this email. Went back to CC and it was the old version. What’s going on?

    • Mary – we had a minor bug that we needed to fix after the page went live. In order to fix it for all of our customers, we had to take it down for a very short period of time, but it’s now back up and ready for you to use!

    I was so excited about this feature that I went in right away and created about 7 new folders and sorted all my emails. This morning when I went back into my account– all the folders were GONE! What happened???

  11. I’m super excited about the Folders feature!
    We have 3 very distinct mailing lists (though most people are part of more than one of them) and this will take email organization to a whole new level.
    THANK YOU!!!

    The FOLDERS section is not displaying on my interface. How do I activate/access Folders?

  13. Yesterday I created a folder for my email and today it is gone and the folder option is gone from My Email page. Can you tell me what might have happened?

    • Carol – sorry for the delay here. We had a minor bug that we needed to fix in order to make this work for all of our customers. In order to fix it, we had to turn if off for a moment, but i’s back up now and ready for you to use.

  14. I don’t see a “Create Folder” link in my Emails view.

  15. You tell me I can “Create folders. You can now drag and drop emails into custom folders that you create.”, but how do I do it. I can’t find any instructions for creating custom folders. Hopefully there will be a link on the website soon that will allow your customers to understand how to utilize this new ability.

  16. I agree with the comment about the politically correct templates. This is a shame and I expect more from ConstantContact. I expect ConstantContact to be on the leading edge not on the lemming edge!

  17. This is nice, and I hope you will consider making it a priority to improve the ability to transfer contacts into CC directly from Google Contacts. Currently I cannot isolate the different groups I have in Google Contacts and import them seamlessly into CC. It is an all or nothing proposition…thanks.

    This is a great feature! It was easy to use and very helpful. However as I created subcategories to folders I found that the original folder count remained at zero. It would be nice as folders are added within other folders for the original to keep a count of how many emails are in the folder. Thanks for the new feature!

    Reply
    • Hey Alexus – thanks for the feedback. When you make subfolders and then put emails into them, the overall number will change (so, if you have 6 emails in a folder, create a subfolder and then put one email in there, the original folder will now read 5). I’ve passed your feedback on to our development team. Thanks!
