We recently upgraded from CiviCRM 4.5.8 to 4.6.2 and this is our first shot with the new interface. We're just at the compose stage but what we've run into so far:
- Multiple copies of the draft appear to be created as you're editing. In some of those copies it will say "place holder" in the Mailing Name column while others have the correct Mailing Name.
- Once you've backed out of the editor (either from a freeze as we've had with IE or you just intend to come back later to finish it up), the Status column shows "Complete" and the Scheduled/Started/Completed columns now have timestamps. Nothing has been sent and if you click on the Report link it shows all "0" even though while editing there was a number for the estimated recipients.
- Even though the Status shows as Complete versus Not scheduled as it would back in 4.5.8, these draft mailings show up for both Mailing Status of Draft/Unscheduled as well as Complete.
At this point we've seen this from a client using Windows 7 and IE while I'm using Chrome on Linux. Using the same Chrome/Linux combo I was able to get a mailing composed and sent using CiviCRM 4.6.2 on a WordPress site.
I just put in the define('CIVICRM_CIVIMAIL_UI_LEGACY',1); setting into the civicrm.settings.php file to get this mailing out but can revert back for some testing.
