  • Address updates, text blast workflow improvements and more

    Update

    We've added the ability to request all address types on all page types: now you’ll be able to specify which address type is being requested and modify the order of the address inputs for better localization.

    Update

    Users can now define the type of address they are creating alongside a new signup

  • Conversions, security, filters and membership updates

    Update

    We’ve leveled up automations by adding conversion tracking—a new feature designed to help you measure your success and create even more sophisticated email series. 

    Now, you can specify what you’d like to achieve with your automation, such as getting your supporters to donate a specific amount, RSVP to an event, or renew their membership. Once you define your conversion, you can keep track of everyone who has taken that action, and select whether you want them to automatically exit your automation as they convert. 

    Read our documentation on conversions.


    Update

    To increase the security of user accounts, we reduced the logged-in user sessions to 12 hours. This change impacts users logging into the control panel and/or to public sites, but not "sorta logged in" users.

    We've added an option to filter for the address type that is set as the “primary address” for a given person/organization.

    We created a new flow to create tracking codes in the control panel. There is now a "New tracking code" button and a new view for adding the tracking code had been created.

     

  • Email Automations is now here!

    Update

    We’ve started releasing email automation to customers on a rolling basis, which we’ll continue to do over the next two months. Currently under the “Workflows” tab of your control panel, you can start creating email automations sourced from a list or from page actions taken on your website, and customize exclusions to prevent supporters from being added to your automation. Check out the new feature in action in this short video and see how automations can make your fully-integrated system even more powerful. If you don’t already see these features in your Control Panel and want to start using them as soon as possible, sign your nation up to get on the priority list for roll out.
