      I’m very happy to let you know that we are looking at creating new templates and the design and development teams are working on implementing a new drag and drop editor which will be full of enhanced features. I would like to give you more information about both, however at the current stage of design and development it has not reached testing, so I’ll update this post as information of the new and improved editor’s features, and templates arrives.

      Thank You

      • Allow customer to choose their mailing list in signup form via dropdown or checkboxes.

        I'd like to put ONE signup form on my site that lets customers pick whichever email list(s) they want to subscribe to. Currently that's not an option without having to manually move them myself. Save me some work?

        • Add file folders to differentiate various marketing campaigns and emails prior to archiving

          We have a variety of markets and mareketing campaigns in progress, it would be nice to be able to organize them in a database format similar to how you would organize your desktop files for retrival and review

          • Autoresponse to Surveys

            I use the 'survey' as a means of registration for events and it would be great if an autoresponse could be sent - with details and thanks - immediately upon the person hitting the submit button.

            • Expand size of email editor.

              It is silly that you can not make the editor box larger when you have more room on your monitor to use. I have to scroll left to right all the time, and it is not because my template is very wide, it's regular size.
              This should be easy for you to fix Benchmark, something that you could do in the short term

              • Allow us to host unsubscribe and manage subscription boxes on our website

                I think we should be able to have the unsubscribe and manage subscription boxes hosted on our webpage. If you can just give us the code for these boxes, we can put them on our site and then send the links to benchmark for approval. Once approved, you change our account settings so when someone clicks unsubscribe it takes them to our new page...not the benchmark unsubscribe page. This gives us the chance to bring more traffic to our site before someone unsubscribes...

                  This is currently being researched and information is being gathered for our design and development team. This post will be updated as soon as information of the possibility of this feature becoming available occurs.

                    As we continue to grow, different integrations to other apps is seen as very important to us. This will be reviewed by our testing/development teams and we will see what the possibility of this coming into fruition will be.

                  • Folders For Images

                    How long will it take to be able to sort images into folders and sort depending on the department sending the email. They are all together. They are all a mess together and hard to find.

                      • Ability to FRAME images (with a line)

                        I want to be able to put a "frame" (line) around images like I can in microsoft word. I want to choose the COLOR and THICKNESS of the line (like I'm able to in Microsoft Word). It makes images stand out and look more professional.

                          As you may know we have a new editor in development. I’m not aware of the capabilities of it yet, but I will pass your suggestion on to the design and development teams.
                          Until then for those that like to look at the html code and do it yourseilf, some in-line css can do exactly what is being asked. I’ve put a how-to in the ‘comments’ , so to see how, just click ‘comments’, which is under the suggestion and you’ll see my comment of how to.

                        • Emails in multiple languages (different header/footer) in the same account

                          I'd like to be able to send emails in French or Spanish -- or other offered languages from the same account I use for my English emails. Creating a seperate account and email for each language seems unnecessary.

                            When you search in all the contact lists you can only search by email. I'd like to search al least by name and surname.

                            • Ability to exclude specific emails on a list from a mailing

                              I would like to be able to select specific contacts to exclude from a mailing when appropriate. In some cases there are a few members of a list that should not get the email I'm sending but it makes more sense to simply exclude them from the mailing then create a whole new list.

                              • Rename images in media gallery

                                Instead of having images upload with a default number - I want to save them with a name that I use in my emails. Very common.

                                • Allow HTML in confirmation email from sign-up form.

                                  As far as I can see there is no HTML designer or option to use our own HTML code for the confirmation/option email. This leaves the confirmation email looking quite ugly. Can we have this added?

                                  • Archive Page Edit Using Numbers or Drag

                                    It's difficult to move a new newsletter at the bottom all the way to the top. There used to be a number so I can move instantly to the first spot. I've got nearly 70 newsletters and it takes forever to move from the bottom to the top using the drag!!!

                                        • Better Manage Subscription Option

                                          Right now when a subscriber manages their subscription, they are only able to uncheck the list they are currently subscribed to and change their name. Would be nice if we could have a "Manage Subscription" page that allows the subscriber to subscribe to any of your lists that you chose to make visible and complete all the fields you set. Such as complete name, address, phone, etc.
