And I realize that there is subscriber profile access, but creating a login to do this deed is even more steps.
Profiles are automatically created upon a subscription to any Dada Mail list and the subscriber will be logged in. Perhaps an easier thing would be to make the profile session last for a long time, so a subscriber is logged into their profile "always"
I think there used to be a simple, one-step change email form in Dada, but apparently it's gone.
It was gone, because it was completely insecure. Anyone could change anyone else's email address on any list to any other email address.
Wouldn't it be consistent with email ethics to have a form allowing the subscriber to enter the new email on one page (with the old email pre-populated) then a single confirmation link thingie sent to the old email address ?? I think that would be a great feature to add, and hopefully not too much work!
That's really pretty close to what Profiles have already, plus profiles adds that layer of security (not anyone can request a change of address for any address). That would not be a good thing. I think asking for someone to login successfully to make changes to an account (basically) isn't asking too too much.
and hopefully not too much work!
Nothing is simple as it seems :)
