Universal Email Footer

Need more info in footer when sending email blasts. CAN-SPAM requires a valid physical address.

Good -- Allow editing of the default footer that is added to all email blasts.

Better -- Allow editing, and saving, of multiple footers that can be chosen from, and added, by name, to each email blast as it is created and sent.

Best -- Allow editing of a default footer that is saved with all saved searches. Then, when a saved search is used to send an email blast, the footer saved and sent with it can be edited, and re-saved.

        Oh please! This should be as basic as the same footer info that is on the website. it is very painful every time, having to add this information to the email blasts.

        Suggestion:
        Since the information in a footer is usually universal, making the email’s
        footer a separate macro or gadget would be a time-saver, allowing the change in one
        place to update all.

        I can image 3 different footer characteristics/macros/gadgets. They would be…
        Custom – optional [customized text]
        Contact Info – optional, defaults to organization information but can be customized
        Unsubscribe – mandatory, with the statement of “You are receiving these emails
        because [ default or customized ] , such as mind… You are receiving these emails
        because you signed up for our newsletter, a clinic, ride, event or class. If you
        unsubscribe you may miss out on important information, including information
        regarding your registrations.

        Are you referring to the Unsubscribe link that's automatically added by WA? If so, then I would very much like to edit this as well.

        David,

        I would appreciate some examples of what might go into such a footer.

        Also, can you elaborate - what do you see as advantages of having a separate footer instead of including a desired footer in every email? Is it about the enforcement of including a specific standard footer?
