    I've read the road map for Q1 this year and have a question about the enhancements that will be rolled out for the newsletter module.

    Will the report functionality show me email addresses that read and forwarded the newsletter, or is it only a combined statistic such as # emails read, # emails forwarded?

    Hello Amanda Shafer,

    I confirm that the report functionality will show the actual email addresses that read and forwarded the newsletter.

    Let me know if you have more questions.

    Hi Andrei,

    I have addressed your issue in your other thread that you have opened. For your convenience I'm quoting my answer below:

    "Hi Andrei,

    Did you to remove the Newsletters module? I saw your post in the forums and I believe that's the issue. You need to register it again now, and restart the application. You do that by putting the following line in your AppData/Sitefinity/Configuration/SystemConfig.config file of your SitefinityWebApp project
    Copy Code
    Copy Code
    <add name="Newsletters" />
    Restart the application and the Newsletters module should be installed, and you will be able to access the Settings page.

    Currently we do not provide a tool for removing the modules, and in your particular case, NewslettersResources are referenced in the Basic settings sidebar template, so removing the module gives you this error when accessing Administration >> Settings. We will inspect that behavior."



    All the best,

    Can you please tell me where I can get the email address of who opened or forwarded an email?

    In the tests that I ran, all it shows are numbers.The numbers are also very strange. I sent the newsletter to two test recepients (myself and a co-worker). We both opened the newsletter email. It's reporting 0 successful deliveries and -6 unopened. I know it is still in Beta, but was wondering if it was functioning well for anyone else.

    Thanks!

    Hello Boyan,
    Thank you for the reply. Just two clarifications needed.

    1. Does this mean there is currently no way to get a list of who (email address, subscriber name) openeded or forwarded an email? In February, Kalina from the Telerik team had confirmed it would be possible (See earlier post). Was this not implemented?

    2. Is there an estimate as to when the newsletter numbers will be functioned correctly? Which service pack? Or is there a PITS number for this?

    Thanks!

    Hi Amanda Shafer,

    We are aiming to remove the beta label from the module by the end of this Q. The issues in the campaign management should also be resolved by then. 
    Unfortunately, there is no PITS issues for the issues you've noted, but we will make sure to log such so that you can track the progress.

    Best wishes,
    Georgi

    Hello Georgi,
    Thank you for responding. I look forward to the improvements on the newsletter. One of our projects is actually waiting to launch for it. The other system we use currently have this functionality and we need it before the site can switch over. We'd rather not have to use a 3rd party system in the meantime.
    Thanks!
    - Amanda
