Mailing lists - no opt in dates

  • Mailing lists - no opt in dates
  • Hi -  Why is it that when someone joins a mailing list no date is logged?  Opt in dates are very important when email marketing to readers.  Is there a way for force an opt-in date?

    After looking at the sf_subscriber table I see the data is all there. Is there a way to have the dates appear on the Marketing/Subscribers page?  Then of course, have them be exported along with the name and email info?  Thanks.

  • Hi,

    As far as I understand you would like to display the DateCreated field in the Subscribers grid in the backend under Marketing -> Subscribers.

    If so, please note that the SubscribersView uses RadGrid in order to display the Subscribers and their columns. The grid gets populated by calling the SubscriberService and through Javascript uses the returned SubscriberViewModel object to get the different properties and display them on the view.

    Unfortunately this process does not expose the DateCreated field and since this filed is not returned from the service it is not possible to display it in the grid.

    Currently there is no possibility to extend the SubscriberService in order to achieve the desired functionality, as it would require replacing the whole service, since the SubscriberViewModel type is used in all its methods.
