Improvements & Fixes

 We’ve got some exciting updates  to make user engagement in Communities even better.

New Notifications

New Comment – Post author will now get Email & In-App notifications when other members of the group comment on their post
New Comment Reply – Comment Authors will now get Email & In-App notifications when other members reply to their comments

Invite Link Flow

Now group members can also invite users to a group using invite links which was previously restricted to admins only.


Creation of default channels for new groups : On creation of a new community a new default channel will be automatically created, making it more easy to get started with a new group.
Mandatory complete profile: Now its mandatory for all the members to complete their profile by adding profile picture, title and bio. This will help members of community to know each other better.



User Permissions For Exporting Payments Data As A CSV

Admins will now be able to configure user permissions for exporting payments data as a CSV file from their account. This applies for exporting invoices, transactions or subscriptions CSVs.

This is useful when businesses do not want specific users to have export permissions on their payments data. The toggle is turned on by default for all users, which means that they will have the permissions to export data by default.

100% Discount Coupons On Subscriptions 

Users can now apply a 100% coupon or apply a full fixed amount discount on subscriptions. This is useful when businesses want to sell a subscription for free and have upsell purchases configured in the next step.

The credit card added for 100% discount will be saved on file to charge the customer at a later date



Update Payment Method For Ongoing Subscriptions 

Authorize.Net and NMI Users can now conveniently send customers a link to update their payment method for ongoing subscriptions.

How it works:

  • The option to send this link is available through the quick action menu on the Subscription list page and the Actions section on the subscription detail page.
  • Users can either email the link directly to the customer or copy it to send separately.
  • These links are one time use only, and valid only for 30 days.
  • Customers simply click the link to view and update their subscription details.
  • Upon updating, the new payment method will be charged starting from the next billing cycle.
  • Users can generate multiple links, as well as deactivate all outstanding links right from the subscriptions page for any given subscription.
  • This feature is currently supported only for Authorize.net and NMI connections

Coming up next:

We are adding support for this to work with Stripe as well.



Coupon Codes For Payment Links

Users can now configure coupon codes for payment links. Coupon codes can be configured with all available specifications similar to order forms. There has also been a design update of payment links to show the price breakdown including Discount & Taxes.



Attachment Support & Custom field Update

PPTX Attachment Support: We’ve added support for uploading and sending PPTX attachments. This expansion broadens the types of files supported for attachment uploads.

Custom Field Date Format Update: We’ve updated the date format used when compiling custom contact date-type files. The new format is “Mar 18th, 2024”. This change ensures consistency across our service’s date formats, making them unambiguous for users across different locales.

Bug Fixes:

  • Enhanced Segment Count Logic: Previously, customers reported inconsistencies in segment calculation, leading to inaccurate estimations. We’ve revamped our approach by integrating Twilio’s sms-segments-calculator in the SMS Template(Snippets) builder. This upgrade ensures precise segment calculations, guaranteeing reliable message delivery.
  • Optimized Custom Fields Data Retrieval: Previously, sending messages or compiling templates suffered from latency issues due to data fetching from Location API services. To tackle this, we’ve streamlined the process. By directly accessing data from our Firestore DB, we’ve significantly reduced delays, resulting in smoother operations and faster performance. :zap:️:wrench:
  • Improved Twilio Attachment Download: Some customers didn’t provide Twilio apiKey and apiSecret, causing difficulties in downloading attachments for incoming messages. We’ve addressed this by enhancing our attachment download logic. Now, regardless of whether apiKey and apiSecret are provided, attachments will be retrieved accurately, ensuring seamless display on our UI. 
  • Improved Email View: Fixed a bug causing email messages to sporadically freeze in the email view during peak load times.
  • Improved GMB Message Tab: Added GMB initialization to the contact details page.



Manual Actions Widget

In the DashboardV2 tab we have a Manual Actions widget which has filters for Campaigns/Workflows. Since we are slowly deprecating campaigns, we have split the drop-down into 2 separate drop-downs.

  • Dropdown 1 – Automation Type, Options – Campaigns or Workflows
  • Dropdown 2 – If user selects Campaigns in dropdown 1 then all the Campaigns List or if user selects Workflows in dropdown 1 – Workflow List Paginated (Infinite Scroll, Search supported)

Note – For all new locations Campaigns are deprecated so they will not see dropdown 1 and will only see workflow dropdown with Pagination.


New Chart Type Tables 

We’re thrilled to introduce a new chart type for your dashboards – Tables!

With table charts, all your widgets can be transformed into detailed list views, offering comprehensive insights at a glance. You can manage the columns you want to see on the widget and tailor your view to focus on the metrics that matter most to you and your business.

How It Works:

  1. Go to your dashboard.
  2. Click on the edit icon and then Add widget.
  3. Scroll down to the widget you want to add.

  5. Click on Select Columns to manage columns you want on your widget (Optional)
  6. In advance settings, you can choose the column on which you want to order the table  (Optional)
  7. Click on save.

Note: Table chart supports up to 10,000 records per widget.


Documents & Contracts

New Fillable Element: Initials 

While going through a multi-page PDF, many of our users wanted to add the option for the signer to add Initials on every page to ensure that they have gone through it.

Editors will now be able to drag and drop initials and assign it to the recipient that they want, and signers will be able to click on the initials element and either type or draw their initials.

How to Use?

Buy Now Button On Product Detail page

We are thrilled to announce a new addition to our e-commerce store – the ability for users to buy a product directly through a “Buy now” button. This enables users who would like to buy a single item to directly skip all the cart addition steps and just click on one button to go directly to the checkout page with the selected product.

This option will by default be switched off for new and existing stores, and can be toggled on by the toggle as shown in the image.

Border color, text color, button color, and button texts for add to cart, as well as buy now, can be customized. By default, the buy now button will have a border and transparent background.

Upon clicking on buy now, the user will be taken to the checkout page directly with only 1 quantity of the item selected. The item selected for buy now will be added to the cart as wll.

Upon abandoning a cart, the abandoned cart notification will only contain the product that has been added via buy now, in case of buy now flow.

Upon a successful purchase, any other items apart from the selected buy now item present in the cart remain unaffected.
