Improving the Create Campaign Process

We’ve just released version 5.3.0, which introduces a completely revamped “Create Campaign” section. We’ve taken your ideas into consideration, and implemented our own fixes and improvements, and have come up with a much more responsive and smarter campaign process.

Here is an overview of some of the major changes with the new campaign process:

  • More responsive, cleaner, and updated feel.
  • Auto-generation of the text version of your mailing.
  • Improved summary page with quicker visibility to important information prior to sending.
  • Distinct template categories to better organize similar styles.
  • Less steps altogether, with easier navigation between each.

Here are some other smaller (but still important) improvements or changes:

  • “Email Messages” section has been removed and is now solely available through the campaign process.
  • Recurring campaigns are now part of the Regular Campaign option, and only work in combination with “Fetch from URL” or RSS campaigns (dynamic content).
  • There is a new “Text-Only” Campaign.
  • You can view more than 50 templates for use in your campaign (previously this was limited).

Here are some screenshots.

    Cool, has been waiting for this updates for some time, I think this time round of updates took one of the longest?

      This did take a little time to complete/test due to the complexity of campaigns and all the various options.  In addition to this we have been busy working on more “backend” type of updates/work.

    I would need to download and put on my server, will it just update what I have or do I start over?
    Is there a “how to” instructions?
