Highlighted below are the key features in our April 2016 release
Customers using CRM 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, or CRM Online can use our Auto-Update feature to download or initiate an update. If you’ve signed up to have new versions automatically installed, we have scheduled the update to take place over the weekend of April 30th. All updates are free and simple to complete.Not all new features are available for CRM 4.0.
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.
View Participants and their Timelines in Campaign Automations
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.
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.
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).
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.
ClickDimensions is Compatible with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016
We have optimized the form scripts for faster load time
The ClickDimensions API will have the ability to manipulate image manager folders and images. With some of your own development, you can use our API to migrate images and folders from an old system, or have an integration with an outside resource/image library. Read More.
