This ensures that only the finalized and approved content reaches the audience, minimizing the risk of errors and streamlining the publishing process. You can confidently experiment with different ideas and approaches, knowing that you have full control over what goes live.
  • Attach Domain from Builder: Users now have the ability to attach a domain to the funnel when the page is published and if the funnel is not connected to any domain.

Email Campaigns 

 Send Email Campaigns to Multiple SmartList and Tags

Say goodbye to static lists/tags and hello to dynamic, ever-evolving segments! We are excited to introduce a powerful enhancement to our platform that empowers users to create more refined and dynamic target lists effortlessly. Now, users can leverage multiple smart lists and tags to curate their sender lists, streamlining the process of audience segmentation for campaigns.

Prior to this update, our users faced challenges in creating custom target audience lists for campaigns as the traditional method involved creating custom lists for each campaign or manually adding contacts. This hindered efficiency and increased the risk of oversights, impacting the accuracy and completeness of target lists for campaigns.

How to Send to multiple SmartLists and tags while scheduling email campaigns:

1. Go to Marketing > Emails > Campaigns

2. Create the Email using template and save the content with different elements

3. Once you click on Send or Schedule button, it will take you to schedule the type of delivery and other details

4. In the recipient details, there is option to select contacts, smartlist and tags

– You can choose more than one smart lists and tags

– It will apply and condition to bring the unique contacts (duplicate contact emails will be considered one)

– While adding individual contacts, you can also have a custom view of only selected users with a single click.

Note – We are currently supporting adding multiple tags or smartlist. The release does not support the combination of multiple tags and smartlists yet.



Support for negative margins, various CSS units and UX Enhancements

New padding and margin selector

  • Users can now add negative margins in the new margin padding selector in the email builder.
  • Users can now use other CSS units such as rem em auto % etc.
  • Slightly increased the size of the component to reduce clutter.


Link Customization in Global Appearance of Email Builder

We’re thrilled to introduce a new feature that lets you easily manage the appearance of links across your content. Now, you can set link parameters directly in the Global Appearance section.

Why We Did It?

Streamlining the link customization process was our goal based on user feedback. By centralizing link settings globally, we make it simpler to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout your project.


  • Consistency Made Easy: Define link colors and styles globally to maintain a professional and consistent appearance across your content.
  • Save Time: No more manual updates in multiple places. Set global parameters, and changes apply universally, saving you time and effort.
  • Stay Relevant: Quickly adapt to design trends by adjusting link parameters globally, ensuring your content is always up-to-date.

How to Use?

  • Go to the global Appearance section in your Builder.
  • Find Link section and update your Style and Colour preferences

Inline Editing Flexibility:

  • Any inline edits you make will automatically get prioritized to the global link parameters, ensuring we provide a two way flexibility to our users.

We’re excited about these customization options and hope they enhance the email content creation experience.


Affiliate Manager

  • Choose Your Default: Select your default payment provider in the payments integration settings. Opt for either Authorize.net or NMI based on your preferences.

If there’s enough demand, we’ll collaborate with the developer team to make it happen.

Why it Matters:

Empower yourself with streamlined campaign management. Whether it’s cleaning up your roster or starting fresh, deleting affiliates is now a breeze!


 Multi-currency support for product creation and accepting payments

Prior to this release, a user residing in the USA could only create and send invoices in USD dollar ( the currency mapped to their account location). This includes currency restrictions in all of the invoice products like Text2Pay, Invoice Template, Recurring Template

On creation of products we only supported products with prices in the same currency and there was further restriction that allowed creation of products only in their subaccount location.

To overcome the above issues, users had to change their account location to a location that had the currency they need and post creation of an invoice / product in that location they switched back to their original location which resulted in poor experience and created a major need for having multi-currency support on Invoicing & Payments.

Now, users will be able to create products in their preferred choice of currency and accept payments. This means that the business country would no longer define the currency of the products, invoices, or Text2Pay links. This solves a major point of creating separate products targeted toward specific geographies or sending invoices to customers in different countries.

This covers support in creating preferred currency products, sending one-time or recurring invoices in any currency, sending a Tex2Pay link as per the contact’s country and currency, and charging a card while on the contacts list page.

How will this impact my old Invoices and Products?

This will not impact any of the older products or invoices created.

How can I use it ?

  • Head over to Payments -> Products -> create Product here while choosing the price one can define the price in different currencies for a product. One can later use this product in a host of other places.
  • Head over to Payments -> Invoice -> Create Invoice in order to make use of multi-currency and be able to add a product in any currency of your choice. One can also dynamically create a product from Create an Item option present here in any currency.
  • One also has the option now to use it in Recurring Template and Invoice Template
  • Head over to Contacts -> Your Customer -> In the Activity tab of Payments make use of the Charge Now option as per your ease or in the conversations click on the $ symbol to make use of Text2Pay for creating and sending a text2Pay invoice in any currency.

Requesting teams that are yet in the process of releasing this for their modules to quickly do so as a few places already support this and there will be inconsistency in the platform.
