When I press the “test” button in a newsletter, it automatically sets the “schedule” data and time and then sets the status to “sent” with the dashboard section of the newsletter going purple and saying “100% queued”. Then the button “send” disappears and I cannot send the newsletter to the real recipients in the "Email Group?
What is the point of the “test” button if it functions like this?
The actual test email gets sent to the email address in the “Test Email Address” straight away and works fine even though a message box pops up when I press the “test” button and says something about the email being scheduled an hour in advance of the time when I pressed the “test” button. What is the point of that also?
Make a new newsletter
Enter Test Email address
Check email is working and make changes accordingly
Got to 2 if changes needed
Options: Press “Send” button if you want to send now or
Enter schedule time to send and save.
Schedule time should be editable if you want to change something at the last minute.
I’ve just tried again and the same result. This screenshot is after I press “test” and reload the page. Dashboard says it has been sent and checkbox “Email Sent” is ticked and no “Send Now” button in the top right corner.
I a unable to replicate this. Could you check the email queue after you click “Test”? Do not reload the page. Check if a single email is sent or multiple emails are sent in the email queue once you click “Test”.
