Introducing BETA

This release includes a few new features that we are releasing as BETA previews. BETA features are in their first iteration and may encounter issues when used at scale in production, so we would love to hear your feedback on how well they work for you and if you encounter any specific issues with these features. To provide feedback on the BETA features included in this release, please submit a support request. Provide our team with as much detail as possible – screenshots, error messages and any other information will be very helpful as we finalize these features for upcoming releases.



Campaign Automations


BETA

View Participants and their Timelines in Campaign Automations

Within the Campaign Automation Builder, you can now view, stop, pause, and resume individual participants. You can view an individual participant’s timeline to see how far the participant has gone within a campaign automation. You will also be able to view all the campaign automations a lead or contact is in on their CRM record.



Entry Trigger “Email Interaction” can have a Negative Path

When using the Email Interaction trigger as an entry point for a campaign automation, you can now add a negative path. If you start your campaign automation by sending an email blast, you can have a path for recipients who did or did not interact with the email.



Send Email Action: Specify CNAME and Email Address Field

When setting up a Send Email action in a campaign automation, you can now specify which CNAME to use for your email links. Also, select which email address field on a lead/contact record should be used when the email is sent.

Drag and Drop Editor


Add Links to Your Social Network Profiles

Insert social profile page links into your emails using our new Social Links feature in the Drag and Drop editor. Select which social networks you want to include and insert the links. ClickDimensions will remember the social links for future emails to help you create your emails faster.

Note: The feature formerly called “Social Links” is now called Social Sharing.



Style Lists and Links within an Individual Block

Set the style settings for lists and links within an individual block. Specify a custom color for your bulleted and numbered lists, and apply styles for all links within a specific block.

Hyperlink Manager


Insert a Phone Number Link in Emails

Insert a link in your emails that will prompt your recipients to call a phone number. Use the phone tab in the hyperlink manager to insert the link correctly (available in the Drag and Drop editor and Freestyle editor).

Subscription Management Forms


Add CAPTCHA Component to Subscription Forms

Insert the CAPTCHA component on your Subscription Management forms to make sure only humans (and not robots) can submit your form.

Email Send


Automatic Save when Clicking Send

When you now click the Send button on an Email Send record, ClickDimensions will automatically save the record. This means that any changes made to the Email Send that you forgot to save will be saved before your email is sent.
