Ever decided one day that you wanted to change all the text in your campaign from Verdana to Arial? And then realized you had 27 text boxes, and you needed to select all the text in each one separately to do it?
Or maybe even, as the designer of a template, you’d had enough of other users ‘inventing’ their own styles?
We heard a lot of stories like these, and we realized we needed a better way to help you update templates on the one hand – and to lock them down on the other.
And so, from today, EasyEditor features a way to define, manage and apply styles. What are styles? Essentially, they’re groups of text settings that you can apply all at once.
But if you’re a designer or template builder, you can also ‘lock’ your styles down – meaning only the styles you define can be selected by your other users. It’s the best way yet to keep your designs looking their best.
Are you part of a team?
Do you have several accounts with users spread amongst them? Keeping tabs on all those users has previously been… a challenge. So we’ve built a team management area, which gives you a holistic view of all your accounts and all your users in one place. You can now give any user access to any account (no matter whether they’re an account owner or a standard user).
It also enables templates to be shared between accounts. Have a primary brand template that you want your sub-brand accounts to have access to? Not a problem. Need to update that template with a new style? Do it in once place, and see your changes shared everywhere.
Right now, the team management area is in closed beta. If you’re interested in being amongst the first to use it, let us know.
Seed lists for your campaigns
If you work for a company of a certain size, you probably have a compliance team. Compliance teams are full of lovely people of course, but they can also be sticklers for doing things right (and, well, compliantly).
And so if your compliance team wants to record everything you send, then a seed list is for you. Include an email address (or more – you can include up to 25) and we’ll send every campaign to it without you doing a thing.
Of course, you may have other reasons for using a seed list. For sharing sends with your team perhaps, or keeping your boss up to date. Sending all your campaigns to your mum, however, isn’t recommended.
Lead scores from the API
If you’re scoring your contacts with our lead scoring tool, then those scores are now available through our API. This means you can sync them with the other tools you use, such as a CRM or eCommerce platform. Our developer hub has more details.
Magento 2.1 support
Our Magento connector now supports Magento 2.1, so you can upgrade safe in the knowledge you won’t knock your dotmailer integration sideways.
We’ve also introduced the ability to expire coupon codes, check the status of abandoned cart and review request emails, synchronize product attributes and enroll new customers into automation programs. If there’s something in there that you need, you can upgrade now.
