Final "Ready to Send" checkbox before sending

Coming from ExactTarget (an ESP that I did not enjoy using), there was one thing in the UI that we did appreciate.

On the send confirmation screen before triggering a send - there was one final checkbox where you verify that the email, recipients, and other details are correct for the email. That actually saved us from a couple of accidental sends and gave an additional layer of peace-of-mind. Screenshot below -



The issue with Emma is that the SEND NOW button is very close and prominent next to the Schedule for Later link. I was very close to clicking the SEND NOW button for an email meant to be scheduled.

For fun, here's a mockup of what I'd recommend (click for larger version) -



Anyway - I think there is something nice about that extra mental step before confirming an email send to thousands of contacts!

Hey Noah,

Thank you for the suggestion, I love the example and mockup you have attached. I will definitely pass this along to our developers, I know these mistakes are easy to make (especially when trying to hit a deadline) and that would be a great check before sending!

Cheers,

Zach

I like Noah's suggestion as well.

I too come from Exact Target, and having an extra confirmation screen or a confirmation acknowledgement would be nice to help prevent error.
