Mailing List Dashboard I want to... Menu Tasks

The I want to... menu was a popular feature in our legacy UI. Knowing how often you used this menu on both the site dashboard and the mailing list dashboard, we wanted to make these tasks as readily available throughout the new UI as possible.

To help in your transition to the new UI, we're going to point out where the tasks of both your site and mailing list's I want to... menus can be found in the new locations of your FeedBlitz dashboard. This post will walk you through the menu from your Mailing List Dashboard.

Additional menu tasks posts: Site Dashboard I want to... and RSS Dashboard I want to...

Take an Action:

Send, schedule a mailing

To send or schedule a mailing in the new UI, first select New Campaign from either of the following places:

You'll be taken to our Campaign page, listing our 3 email campaigns and available social campaigns. To send or schedule what was formerly called a Newsflash or On-Demand mailing, select Single Mailing:

Temporarily pause mailings

The quickest way to temporarily pause an automated mailing or funnel is to navigate to your left-hand menu and select Campaigns > Active:

To pause all mailings associated with a list at the same time, including automated mailings and funnels, select Subscribers > Lists from your left-hand menu, select the mailing list you would like to pause, scroll down to Recently Sent and Scheduled Mailings as shown above and hit Pause Mailings.

Work with subscribers:

Easily and quickly find and view your subscribers by selecting Subscribers > Search:

This information can also be accessed via a mailing list and selecting View from the Subscribers drop-down menu here:

Tag and assign

This option from the mailing list's dashboard I want to... menu took you to a screen where one of three different main actions could take place: apply a tag to a group of subscribers, move / copy transfer subscribers to another list, or delete subscribers from the current list. In the new UI, these options are now on three separate pages.

Begin by selecting your mailing list from Subscribers > Lists in your left-hand menu.

To move / copy subscribers from one list to another, select Assign to a List from the Subscribers drop-down menu:
