HubSpot Wish List

Simplify the Test Email Function/Send Batch Tests

When you’re in your “Manage” Email dashboard it would be nice to send test emails without having to go to each’s individual overview page. It could be put under the “More” tab between “details" and “delete.” Even better, when you check the box next to each email, the only two actions you can currently take is to archive or delete. Why not add "send test?" I was wanting to send multiple emails to myself from the dashboard and had to click on each one, hit send test, go back, click on another, hit send test. Etc. I know you can do multiple in a row by test sending them in workflows, but what if you’re not ready to build a workflow yet, or you just want to quickly test multiple emails?
