Global Unique Identifier
Ability to choose the unique fields in your contacts
Now you will be able to choose which field you want to keep as the unique identifier in your contact.
If a location has a use case to ALLOW duplicate Emails but NOT ALLOW duplicate Phone numbers or vice versa, now they can do so.
Previous option to allow duplicate contact is retained where an account will be able to create duplicate contacts without any unique fields
Available Options for Uniqueness:
Email and Phone Both

Funnels & Websites
XML Sitemaps generation for blogs and categories Now Live
With this update, business owners can now index the urls for the blogs that are added to the funnel/website page(s).
Supports automatically discovering the blogs and categories in the funnel/website page and crawl the urls while just saving the funnel page in the funnel builder.
Previously, In the sitemaps, we are just indexing the funnel url, funnel/website page urls and also any custom paths that are added.
Now, along with the funnel url, funnel page urls and also any custom paths, we are also now indexing the blogs and categories that are added to the funnel page(s)
How It Works
Indexing the blog urls in a funnel page(s) is very straightforward. Navigate to domain settings -> XML Site map -> Select the Funnel/website page(s) with blogs/categories you want to index.
Once you select the funnel/website page -> continue -> provide any custom path if you want -> click Generate and save. You will be provided with the sitemap url.
Pain Point Solved

Increase the products purchased limit in order forms
With this update, the product purchase limit is increased from maximum 10 to 999.
Business owners can now set the limit to 999 maximum in funnel products which will be reflected in the order forms.
Previously, It was only 10 quantity for each product. So Users can only purchase product with quantity 10 maximum.

Manually attributing sales to affiliates
We are excited to announce the latest update to our affiliate management system, introducing the highly requested “Manual Sale Attribution” feature for Affiliate Admins. With this powerful addition, affiliate admins gain the ability to manually attribute sales to affiliates, granting them greater control and flexibility over their affiliate program’s performance.
What pain point did we solve for the customer?
In cases where customers are referred by affiliates without using the affiliate link or signing up from devices where the affiliate cookie isn’t set, admins can now manually add the leads to ensure proper credit for the affiliates’ efforts.
For offline sales made by affiliates, admins can create manual invoices and attribute the sales accurately to the respective affiliates.
How can the affiliate admin do this?
Go to the Affiliate Manager and navigate to the Affiliates screen.
Click on the three dots located on the right side and select “Add Manual Sales.”
A pop-up will appear, requesting the customer’s email. Enter the email of the customer that the affiliate referred.
Next, enter the Campaign Name whose configuration you wish to apply to that customer
All transactions made by the customer will be displayed, allowing you to select the ones you want to attribute to the chosen affiliate.
Introduced the Media screen for sharing branding material with affiliates
We have released a new screen in the Affiliate Manager called ‘Media’ to upload the marketing media that can be downloaded and used by the affiliates. This release will facilitate seamless collaboration between affiliate managers and affiliates by giving them the flexibility to share content.
How will this release help the user
Empowering Affiliate Managers: This release will empower Affiliate Managers with the ability to upload media, such as images, videos, promotional banners, documents, and more via the Media screen that will get reflected directly on the Client Portal.
Centralised Media Repository: The uploaded media files are securely stored in a centralized repository within the Template Library ensuring easy access and organization for both Affiliate Managers and affiliates. The affiliate admins also have the flexibility to categorize their media files in folders.
Effortless Content Sharing: By making media readily available to affiliates, the Affiliate Manager streamlines content sharing, enabling affiliates to access the latest marketing materials instantly. Equipped with a diverse array of promotional resources, affiliates can effectively promote your products or services, resulting in increased brand visibility and sales potential.
How can the affiliate admin do this?

Logo Element and Image Resize
With the logo element and image resize, it will help you build emails seamlessly to attract more customers with relevance.
Why did we add a logo element?
1. Logo element will help reduce down number of clicks and custom coding.
2. It will help you bring your location logo and you will be required to drag and drop inside the builder.
3. Resize or replace your logo with relevant branding and consistency.
Note: The logo will be used from the sub-account logo. You can replace the logo from the template library to match your branding. Next time, it will bring up the most updated logo.
Resize your image
based on your use, add any image from the media library and you will be able to drag the images. You will be able to choose between height/width or resizing inside the builder area.
Using drag functionality to resize images in Email Builder offers several benefits:
1.User-Friendly InterfaceDragging to resize images provides an intuitive and user-friendly interface. Users can visually adjust the size of images by dragging the corners or edges, mimicking real-world interactions. This eliminates the need for complex input fields or settings, making the resizing process more accessible to users of varying technical expertise.
2. Real-Time Preview: With drag functionality, users can see a real-time preview of the image’s size changes as they drag. This instant feedback allows users to visually assess the impact of resizing and make adjustments accordingly. It enhances the user experience by providing immediate visual confirmation of the changes, eliminating the need for additional steps or clicks to preview the resized image.
3. Time Efficiency: Drag functionality enables users to resize images quickly and efficiently. Rather than relying on manual input or complex resizing options, users can simply drag the image corners or edges to the desired size. This saves time and effort, especially when resizing multiple images or working with a large number of visual elements.
4. Improved Collaboration: Dragging to resize images simplifies the collaboration process, especially when multiple users are involved in designing or editing. Users can easily communicate and agree on the desired size adjustments by visually dragging the image. This promotes collaboration, reduces communication barriers, and streamlines the design iteration process.
These benefits contribute to a more efficient and user-friendly image resizing experience in website and application development.
