Mobile

Automation Overview Report for iOS

Users could previously only review a single campaign’s engagement metrics. The new Automation Overview Report provides an overall look at how an entire automated marketing strategy is performing, by aggregating all campaign data associated with a specific automation to help identify areas of opportunity and success.

Add/Edit Android UI Update

This update lets users add or edit tasks in a way that aligns with our recently updated Contact, Deal, and Account Forms. Users now have greater clarity and consistency when viewing the task tab, contact profile, or deal profile.

Android Task Redesign

The new, intuitive Android Task screen design leads to a dedicated Task Detail view that lets users fully understand the task, its related deals and contacts, and provides quick actions to call, email, or text.

iOS Campaign Reporting - Contact Activity Stream

The Contact Activity Stream adds transparency into the data users are shown, by providing an extra level of detail when viewing a campaign’s engagement. Tap into opens, clicks, unsubscribes, bounces, and forwards to see which contacts have performed that action. Since launching campaign reporting at the end of 2019, this was the most requested enhancement!

Reporting & Analytics

Custom Reports: expanded download limits

This will give users more flexibility to dig deep or integrate their data in new or existing workflows by expanding limits to download all results within a look or a dashboard.

Automation Overview Report: Ecommerce revenue update

The way that revenue is associated with an automation has been updated. If a user deletes an order, that order will no longer be associated with that automation in the Automation Overview Report. This update will create a consistent data experience between the way revenue is displayed between the Automations Overview Report and the Marketing Revenue Report.

Campaigns

70+ new email design templates

The “Inspiration” tab in our template builder features pre-designed emails for users to take advantage of when building out a new campaign or automation. Over 70 new templates have been added, for a library of over 125+ design templates — making it easy to customize emails and send beautiful messages in just a few clicks.

Apps & Integrations

Zendesk Sell — Create and Update Contacts

Users with the Zendesk Sell CX App can now push ActiveCampaign contacts to Zendesk Sell Contacts (in addition to Zendesk Sell Leads), letting users orchestrate their data in a more flexible way within ActiveCampaign.

Conversations

Chatbot builder — block count indicator

Users can now better track how many blocks they’ve used while creating their chatbot procedural flow. This lets users plan their procedural flow better as it relates to the current 25 block cap.

Customer Love: Edit email pop-over in visitor detail pane

When editing an email address within the Inbox’s visitors detail pane, the pop-over will not auto-close, so agents can effectively manage any changes to a contact within their inbox

Subdomain Site Tracking

For all users with Conversations web chat or with Site Tracking enabled, cookies are properly being placed to prevent breaks in tracking for a better experience.

Strategic Integrations, Zapier

Search Action: Find Deal Owner

For all customers who use Zapier and ActiveCampaign Deals, there is now a new search action retrieves ActiveCampaign Deal Owner user information on Deals.

Onboarding

Concierge: Welcome Videos

For all users (excluding resellers), they will see two short welcome videos as a first touchpoint in-app for 1) e-commerce, and 2) other customers (digital first + B2B). This will provide a more catered onboarding experience that helps the user understand how the platform is built for them.

Automations

Customer Love: UI Improvements

These are usability improvements, some of which were specifically requested by customers and some to improve overall performance.

  • Automations Builder: when mousing over a send email block, the thumbnail image of the email can now be clicked to take the user directly to the email editor.
  • Automation Builder Manage Messages section: clicking any email name opens the email editor/designer with that email selected
  • If/Else block title: If the customer has defined multiple segment groups, all conditions for all groups are displayed. This time-saver eliminates the need to click on the block and scroll through the conditions to see your current configuration.
  • Automation homepage: Thumbnail now appears in all instances.
  • Automations Builder: Wait Until blocks have been improved to provide a more consistent automation experience and allow customers to send the right messages at the right time.

App Ecosystem

Dynamic Subdomains - App Studio developer capability

In response to Developer requests, new capability exists to allow the Layer to accept subdomains specific to 3rd-party accounts.

Pages

Customer Love: Improved consistency between Pages editor and published pages

Users often saw a different experience between the editor and published (and between browsers) because of the way different browsers render pages. This fix makes experiences consistent.

Customer Love: Protecting published pages within folders

Users won’t be able to delete folders with published pages. Coming next, we’ll allow customers to move pages between folders. Folders can be currently deleted with published pages in them. This delete causes the user to lose the ability to manage any of those pages.

Add required option to checkbox fields in Pages Forms

Users will be able to make checkboxes required in Pages Forms.

Customer Love: Better consistency between mobile and desktop version

Customers will see consistency between mobile/desktop versions and the changes they make in mobile view (or desktop) will be reflected accurately on the published page.

Customer Love: Inform user when a URL is being used by another active page

Customers will see an error message if they try to publish a URL that is being used by another active page.

Customer Love: Special characters in page forms

When trying to add a Pages form to a page users got an error when the page name has a comma (or special character) in it. Now users with Pages that have a special character can add a Pages form.

Customer Love: Improved parallax scrolling

When a user adjusts the parallax effects setting it will work now as expected.

Customer Love: Improved image video uploads

When users attempted to upload image video into a landing page it was not working - this error has been fixed.
