|Summary||0020189: Request to change the List selection when sending a message|
|Description||Related to #20184|
I find the way the lists are displayed in the campaign structure very confusing, because the lists (step 4 of 5) are displayed in 2 tabs; "@" (all?) and "selected".
When you then select a list from the "@" tab and click the save button, that list is no longer displayed in the "@" tab, only in the "selected" tab - which makes sense if you intuitively know what these 2 lists are, but not if you assume (as I did) that the "@" tab represents all the lists. Because it actgually reprsents all the lists EXCEPT for the lists you have already chosen. From a quick glance it just looks like I am missing some lists.
Within the "@" tab there is also an "all lists" checkbox - which doesn't represent all lists, but all lists from the unselected lists - and within the "selected" tab there is an "unselect all" checkbox. This just adds to confusion.
The two tabs are unecessary, and adds a slight confusion to something that should be very straight-forward. One would assume if there was any need for separate tabs at all it would be to separate the "public" and "private" lists, but these are represented in a different way (as text next to the list title).
My suggestion would be to remove the "selected" and "@" tab and simply display a global list. Or if you are worried about the size of the list, just separate the lists in to public and private. I don't see any benefit in creating a "selected" anxd an "@" tab. It only forces the user to second-guess what they are doing.
