  1. Countdown Timer

    It would be nice to have a prebuilt tool that can create countdown timers for us to drag and drop into our messages.

    This article at Litmus offers a solution, which, in theory could be set up as an element in the new message builder.

    • update social sharing links for more popular networks

      in the WYSIWYG editor, the social sharing/swyn button tool is so dated... It has MySpace and Digg as button link inserts... How about adding some other networks that are actually used? (instagram, pinterest, youtube, etc.)

      • Add Gmail Feedback Loop

        Need to embed a new header called the Feedback-ID, consisting of parameters (called Identifiers) that uniquely identify individual campaigns. Any Identifiers with an unusual spam rate and that might cause deliverability issues will be reported in the Postmaster Tools FBL dashboard

        • Send out an email alert to admin users when a message is pending approval

          Using the message approval feature, where one user has to get approval by an admin before a message can be sent, once the user finishes a message and marks it as needing review, an email alert be sent to all email addresses associated with an admin user (or admin user that the message-creator selects). Then the admin won't have to keep checking in the alerts in the Bronto UI and the sending of messages won't be unnecessarily delayed.

          • ability to send test emails from within editor

            It would be really useful if you could add the functionality to send test emails from within the edit email screen as opposed to having to save & exit every time and then send a test email.

            If changes are required its slow to have to keep going back into the message each time.

            • sort message views on 'revenue', 'transactions' etc.

              I've seen similar ideas posted, but this is a quick and easy way to see what's working the best. Really surprising that it's not here. For example, if I have a folder for Clearance emails - instead of digging into the delivery groups, I could quickly see which one performs the best on the basic revenue metrics.

              • Add internal 'notes' field to email messages

                It would be helpful to have an area in an email message where we can write notes about the it. For example, if we upload an email two weeks prior to it actually being scheduled, we could add a note that says "Remember to update the fourth product link before sending" or "This message will be A/B split-tested with Message XYZ."

                • Ability to turn off Bronto tracking for specific links in a message

                  Bronto swaps in a bronto-specific URL and then redirects that to the correct URL (to our site home page for example). 99.9% of the time this works flawlessly and allows Bronto to track who clicked, etc.

                  But sometimes this doesn't work, and the new URL breaks. For example, https://wwwapps.ups.com/tracking/tracking.cgi?tracknum=1ZY836770356134400
                  turns into the broken link
                  http://enews.chromeindustries.com/t/l?ssid=34091&subscriber_id=amwxayisepxehzepideldlsluiyjbfl&delivery_id=anaodpioqrwyjcutcidtsrsckbymbno&td=o6OY2mdBlPrOOoqD9Y6VTgejVwQhLnRSTwRh4SN3I-Gw05heJrcgh8u4gA9VjcEW72MKXhP7odz3T3VrcaUjFzfS-3ePgll0Aookb0TdANj7rFcNrgyfKoXJQE1ehA8NV3w6cLJwVa9AD9MxOjm1PPcEHACAOYoe25qwX9a7YwZgOc3nZwekImMoUfUXYbUu2Q9dcjVrjdZF3XFmcbU3Jt2kW4PzhI15AbcUZByRpbTYrZ1fXjAKu2SkiF0Ws0pLA1bRWZh8HodxM

                  Would be great to get a screen that would allow you to see all the URLs in your message and uncheck any that you did not want Bronto to track.

                  In this case, the outbound message would simply contain "https://wwwapps.ups.com/tracking/tracking.cgi?tracknum=1ZY836770356134400

                  • Ability to exclude message from conversion tracking with simple toggle/radio button

                    Internally, our company does not track email conversions from pre-purchase transactional emails due to the concern it will attribute orders from other channels to email instead. However, without the ability to turn off conversion tracking for such messages, our promotional and other emails may be losing out on attribution.

                    Here's an example of what this looks like: We send a promotional email at 6am. At 10am, a subscriber clicks through and shops the site. Before proceeding through checkout, the customer needs to reset her password. Because she must click on a link in that Forgot Password email, the purchase she…

                    • Debug Message Dynamic Code using existing Order / Contact Data

                      Troubleshooting messages is difficult when the dynamic code fails to work correctly. We have had many major headaches where messages that are sent to the public have missing elements. The Order data is good but the resulting messages are unprofessional at best. There are no easy provisions to reproduce the issue via an on-screen debug or simple 'view existing order' or 'view existing contact' in a message functionality within the message editor. Scope of this should only be for development/support purposes for messages with Dynamic code.

                      • Fix the thumbnail on the email editor page

                        The thumbnail preview on the message editor page (/mail/message/view/messageNumber) seldom or never renders with images for me. This thumbnail is important when I'm working on multiple messages and want to avoid editing or scheduling the wrong one.

                        Please fix it!

                          • Stop the WHYSIWIG from removing TH classes.

                            I'm an email developer and I've created my own templates and used them across many different ESPs with no issues and it's also been the case that all of my clients have been able to edit the templates within the ESPs WHYSIWIG editor after the HTML has been imported.

                            A quick overview of the steps I've taken would be:
                            - Creating a custom header
                            - Creating a custom footer
                            - Creating a new message with the HTML option and then switching switching to the WHYSIWIG editor in order for a campaign manager to amend images and links.

                            Now this works…

                            • Better Search

                              Allow/recognize wildcards or boolean terms in "Contains Search" specifically in All Deliveries.

                              Search responds to "whole words," but not breaks at non-alphabetic characters. Trying to use a simple code for types of campaigns with alpha's and underscores and Bronto's current search brings back irrelevant results.

                                  Within the Email Replies page, when a user clicks on a message, the only navigation is back to the list of all replies. It would be an appreciated usability enhancement to allow navigation to the next (or previous) message.

                                  • decimal places

                                    When creating order confirmation emails, all the pricing tags cut off at 2 decimal places. For example: $%%#order_total%% will appear as $64 instead of $64.00. If there's no value after the decimal, it just gets extracted as a 2 digit number. It would be great if your team could enforce a 4 digit rule on numbers.

                                    • Allow live dual editing on messages

                                      Allow multiple users to edit a message at the same time in real-time and include a feature that notifies you as to how many people are working on the message. See Mailchimp model for an example.

                                        • A/B Testing Content Blocks

                                          I would like to be able to test content blocks within email messages instead of testing full messages against each other. This would make it easier and less time consuming to test many tests and versions of our emails at the same time.
