Here are our release notes for FG Funnels from December 20th, 2023 through December 27th, 2023. If you have any questions about these updates, or other questions about FG Funnels, please reach out to email@example.com or live chat in the app and our team will be happy to help.
Proposals & Estimates
Automatically send invoices for payment after document is completed
Users will now be able to auto-send an invoice for payment after the document has been completed by all participants. The option to enable auto-sending invoices is available under the Proposals and Estimates settings under Product Invoicing.
The toggle is turned off by default, which means that the invoice will only be created and not sent to the customer for payment. This eliminates the need for any workflow to be configured for sending an invoice automatically for payment after document completion.
Copy and Paste Stripe Price id’s to Import Products
Users will now be able to directly copy and paste stripe price id’s to import products from Stripe to FG Funnels individually.
The import functionality is only available for recurring products at this time.
Payments and customer LTV are available on the Contacts page
Users will now be able to see the customer lifetime value (LTV) inside the contact details page under the Payments tab. This will also mention the date from which the contact has turned into a customer, i.e, the date on which the contact made the first payment
Users will also have the capability to charge a saved card on file or a new card for the contact without leaving the contacts page. This solves major use cases of charging a card on file or recording a payment for the customer while on call or in-store. This will allow to charge a customer instantly for any custom amount and have the transaction registered in the CRM
Customer LTV and customer association date will only take live payments into consideration.
Interactive Voice Response – IVR
Add Assign User option
We have added Assigned User option to connect the IVR call to Assigned User of the contact.
If the assigned user is selected in the connect call action, then the system would automatically connect the caller to their Assigned user, which is a heavily used case specially in Sales and Services.

Conversation Enhancements and Fixes
We’ve resolved a critical email thread bug affecting real-time updates within email threads. Specifically, we’ve rectified discrepancies in email count and body previews, ensuring seamless and accurate information delivery.
We’ve also remedied a logic flaw associated with phone number updates. Previously, incoming phone numbers from Instagram messages were saved without cross-referencing for existing duplicates. The update now employs the contact update API, preventing duplicate entries and ensuring data integrity.
3 New Action Types for Array Function
Filter by Index, Line Items & Math to make Array Functions more powerful.
Now when you select Array Function, you will be able to select from 5 powerful Action Types:
- Filter by Index
- Line Items
- To reconstruct the array as per users requirement before storing it in Google Sheets.
- To reconstruct the array to match Email Builder Shopping cart structure.
- To calculate Sub total (line item total), Line Items in cart (count), Total items (qty).
When you visit any page under the ‘Calendars’ Tab, you’ll find a ‘What’s New’ button showcasing the latest updates. The updates displayed depend on your user role—whether you’re a location admin or location user.
Here’s what you can do next:
- Enable New Features: Get redirected to the relevant feature to enable or start using it.
- Learn More through Help Docs: Access documentation to understand and maximize the potential of new features.
- Opt-Out if Not Interested: For those who may not be interested in certain features, opting out is just a click away.
We believe this will improve our feature adoption tracking, ensuring that users stay informed and do not miss out on anything new.
URL redirects with *(all) support
We are thrilled to introduce a significant enhancement to our platform, addressing a common user pain point with URL redirects. Many users have expressed challenges in manually creating redirects for each URL path combination when connecting their www domain to our platform. We’ve listened to your feedback and are excited to present an efficient solution.
What’s new with this update?
Users can now create a single redirect with “*” as the path and an already connected domain as the target. With this improvement, any request to that host and its subpath will automatically redirect to the same path on the target domain.
Pain point solved:
Users have faced difficulties in redirecting specific URL paths from their www domain to our platform. For example, if a user has “example.com” as their domain and wishes to connect “www.example.com” to our funnel, the limitation only allows them to serve the path “www.example.com/”. The hassle arises when users want more specific redirects, such as “www.example.com/store” to “example.com/store,” requiring them to set up individual URL redirects for each page.
How to Use:
- Go to URL Redirects under location settings
- Click on Add Redirect and choose a domain to be redirected
- Don’t choose any path. Choose the Redirect type to be All.
- Choose the domain where you want it to be redirected.
Now all your subpaths of the domain will be redirected to subpaths of the target domain.
- URL redirects with * is only allowed to be added if you are the domain owner of the target domain.
- For the domain which is redirected: Default page and 404 page won’t be applicable for this domain and all traffic to this domain would be redirected.
We believe that this enhancement will greatly improve the efficiency and user experience for managing domain redirects. As always, we value your feedback, so please reach out to our support team with any questions or suggestions.
