"link" to mass email page in acp

Post by Cubguy501 »

How can i post a link directly to the mass email tab within the ACP.

Im just trying to make it easy for our directors to email all directors all at once. its quite a few clicks to get to the page.

I tried posting a link but it included my SID so it doesnt work for anyone, including myself once i logged out and back in again.

Well, they need to log into the ACP first, to get the proper context and sid in their link.
Once they get there, it is only two clicks: One to the system tab and one to the mass mail page.

You can add the "Mass email" module to the General > Quick Access list

It would work, but it would only save one click. Hey, Windows is 30 years old.

That was my point. The ACP login is required, so giving a shortcut on the ACP main page only saves one click.

It can save several clicks if you forget which tab it is on and you have to spend time searching for it
