We're pleased to announce a key improvement to the broadcast message, which we've heard will make things easier for many of you. This is a perfect example of agile development, which allows us to make small, frequent improvements to existing features.
Starting tomorrow afternoon, you'll be able to click a "Send Me a Preview" link at the bottom of the page:
This sends out the broadcast message only to you, so that you can get a feel for it will look in email before sending it out to the rest of your members.
Let us know if you have any questions or feedback about this feature improvement.
I noticed a renewed tendency for Ning messages to be delivered into the spam folder in my yahoo. This may be because yahoo detected HTML and that put the messages ofr the treshhold for spam detection, or it may be just yahoo tinkering with things. Just a thought. Did you check there?
I have been setting up the broadcast message in Notes. Creating it there give you the ability to save it and come back to it later. Just make sure you cut and paste it to your broadcast message and then send yourself a preview.
The other benefit to creating it in Notes is that you have a hard copy of your broadcast messages that you can store on your Ning site.
My broadcast messages are my e-newsletter that I send out once a month. Now my members can refer back to these e-newsletters in Notes!
that's what im doing too. its nice to be able to grab copy from a couple of old newsletters and combine it into a starting point for a new one. Sent-to-myself is a great idea though. cant wait to use it.
