Sent Emails - Add Date/Time Sent to Mailing Details Tab

In the Mailing Details tab, the date and time sent are missing. You have to go back out of this window, back to the list of sent mailings, and find the mailing that you clicked on in the first place just to see the date and time that it was sent. Very time consuming.

    I'd recommend to get a better view on mailing summaries in Performance Insights, which we're moving all Reporting to in the near future. It should be available to you (free) under the Reporting tab on WCA. Please contact Support if you haven't been provisioned for some reason.

    Here's a quick overview video if you haven't been introduced: Performance Insights Overview Video - YouTube

    Here's a quick guide to getting started as well: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS984P/PerformanceInsights/Overview/PI_GettingStarted.html

    Hello, if a team member logs in to WCA and wants to quickly find the sent information regarding a mailing, 2 things happen that I've submitted tickets for review. I've attached screen shots.
    From sent emails window, when you click on a sent email, a window opens that has 3 tabs:
                   Preview  |  Mailing Details  |  Images

    1. Preview Tab: There is not a full preview of the mailing. It opens in a very narrow horizontal window, making user scroll to view the content in the mailing (need full window, cannot take a screenshot, cannot open for review/discussion etc...)
    2. Mailing Details Tab: this tab shows all of the who/how details except for date/time the mailing was sent.

    We recently had an unscheduled last-minute meeting and someone asked who sent a particular email. We went to sent emails, scrolled thru them all and found the email in question, clicked on Mailing Details tab, and saw who sent it. Then someone asked "What day was that? And what time was it sent?" It's not in this window. So we had to leave this screen, go back to list, scroll and find it again just to find the date and time. Seems like it would be a given that the date and time sent are a part of the overall mailing details.

    Thank you.
