    Edit SAVE finally fixed!

    The Edit SAVE for the Welcome email finally appears to be fixed. (I have been checking daily, and it was still broken yesterday, 14 January, PDT). It has only taken a month and two days since I first reported it to finally fix something that was properly functioning and then broken and ignored. I stand by my previous comments below. --ahb

    As of today (5 Jan 2015) the broken SAVE is not fixed. In early December I first reported that the Welcome Email "Send Test Email" button was not functioning (although at the time I could not rule out my email provider). Several days later it seemed to be working, but the "Save" button for the Welcome Email no longer worked (despite telling me it did so). That was immediately reported on 12 Dec. to the Help Desk. The Save function had previously been working. "Save" now responds that the updated Welcome Email has been updated, but of course, as reported in this thread, it was not. It should be pointed out that this particular problem is only apparent to project administrators whom it affects, and the FTDNA standard bug report from users with a kit number is inappropriate for reporting such an issue. There should be a separate bug report from project administrators who by and large would be expected to be somewhat knowledgeable. And a HIGH PRIORITY should be assigned to fixing things that were working and have been inadvertently broken. I would like to suggest that all administrators reporting a bug should immediately be notified of the fix when it's been made and be asked to confirm that things appear to be working properly. That would probably improve the quality assurance somewhat which now seems to be totally lacking. -- ahb

    I don't know how long ago you reported the original issue, but perhaps your email got caught up in the holiday sale backlog? Customer Support is doing their best to catch up on the backlog, but they're really swamped.

    In any case, I just noticed today that Janine, our Groups Liaison, has reported to IT that there's still an issue with the Welcome email not saving.

    I can't tell you exactly when this will be fixed since IT works on bugs based on priority and other factors, but the fact that it has been reported is at least a start.

    I *DID* report the bug through the main feedback and got absolutely no response. Since the bug continued I reported it here, and I will continue to do so whenever I find a bug. Tell FTDNA to improve its response to submitted support requests if you don't want me posting bugs here.

    I did try the GAP I/F just now, clearing out the cache of two browsers (Firefox and Chrome) and still get the same problem.

    Guess I'll report the same bug by submitting feedback, but I don't know why I bother since I never got a response for the first submission.

    Actually, a bug with the Welcome email was just fixed within the last hour, so please see if your issue is now resolved.

    If your issue is still not resolved, please submit the issue to Customer Support.

    started a topic Welcome Email editing not working

    Welcome Email editing not working

    I administer three DNA projects. For two of them if I try editing the Welcome Email, click the Save Email button, navigate away and come back to the Welcome Email, the edits are NOT SAVED. For the third project, if I click to edit the Welcome Email I get HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM.

    Edits for other project data, such as the project profile, appear to work.
Working...
