List of major feature releases and changes in 2018. You can view other product changes here.
Automated consent expiry reminders
Implied consent for Canadian contacts expires 6 months (from an inquiry) or 24 months (from a transaction) after it was obtained.
After consent expires for a contact you cannot send emails to them anymore.
In addition to the consent request banner - that automatically solicits express consent each time you send an email - you can now send automated subscription verification reminders to contacts whose implied consent is about to expire.
Reports pages now load 5-10x quicker!
All reports are cached daily overnight, which means they load quickly when you login to your account.
New email editor
The updated editor gives you:
easier control over image display on mobile screens
the ability to add buttons anywhere in your emails
more space to work on your messages
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation for the privacy of individuals within the European Union (EU). It became effective on May 25, 2018. We updated our automated consent management processes to be compliant with GDPR.
Link names (anchor text) now available in email reports
Email campaign reports now include the "anchor" text in addition to the URL of the link that was clicked on. Links can often be long and hard to read, while anchor texts will provide more insight without detailed analysis of link URLs.
Placeholders for form fields
You can now add placeholder text inside form fields. Use the placeholder field in the form editor.
Self serve email alerts configuration
Send email alerts and assign leads to a salesperson when an interest is assigned to a contact via a form submission or other channels. This functionality is now exposed to administrators who can update routing rules self-serve.
Improved support system
After a successful test of chat-based support in the past few months we have made it the primary support channel and discontinued the old support-ticket system. With chat-based support:
Get responses and send updates directly from user interface and by email (just reply to the email thread)
The chat module is accessible from every page of the user interface
Paste attachments directly from your clipboard
Book a call with support: Many support calls ended up with a transfer to screen sharing in order to troubleshoot issues quicker and explain how to use certain features. For this reason we decided to replace all non-emergency phone support to scheduled screen share sessions.
