What are future and past issues?

Manage your newsletter's future and past editions (issues), get insights on how your organization is engaging to your newsletter, and download reports to get specific details about your newsletter.

Each newsletter has a frequency setting, and depending on the setting, we will automatically generate and schedule the newsletter issues for you.

Future Issues

Five (5) future issues are automatically generated by our system, and the dates depend on the newsletter's frequency settings— if it's set as an ad hoc, daily, weekly, biweekly, or monthly newsletter. The table generates succeeding dates starting from the first issue date that you saved and published. With each future issue, you can:

  • Send Test Email. Send test email allows you to get a live preview of the issue directly from you own inbox. You can also CC your colleagues to share the preview.
  • Edit Issue. You can edit newsletter issues in case you need to change details for a one particular issue only. You can also pin posts or events in newsletter issues.
  • Skip/Remove Issue. If you want the newsletter to skip a date, you can simply "Skip" it and the system will block this issue from sending out. This a good tool to prevent scheduled issues that land on Holidays, for example.

In the Future Issues section, you can also:

  • Reset issues. Resetting your Future Issues removes all the modifications you saved for each issue, if any. Note: To reset the settings of only one newsletter issue, go to the issue's Edit Issue button and click on Reset issue to original settings.
  • Add future issues. This is an exclusive setting for newsletters that have frequency set to Ad hoc. Learn more about adding future issues.

Past Issues

Past Issues is a feed of all the issues that have already been sent out. This table also gives you a quick glance of:

  • Recipients. Number of employees who successfully received the issue.
  • Failed attempts.  Number of emails that have been dropped, blocked, deferred, and/or email addresses that have been unsubscribed.
  • Unique opens. Number of employees who have opened the issue at least once. 
  • Unique clicks.  Number of employees who have clicked on a link/post/event within the issue at least once.

You can also view the insights of each past issue to see its performance and reports.
