Performance Enhancements and Contact Detail Links

Performance Enhancements

  • Email Load Time: Decreased email load time in the conversations and contact details page for a smoother user experience. The previous API took 3-4 seconds to respond, but now it’s reduced to 300 milliseconds, which is about 10 times faster.
  • Resolved errors in the conversation and contact-detail page, which intermittently blocked user interaction on the webpage.

Contact Detail Links

  • Clicking the avatar on the right panel in conversations now seamlessly loads the contact details page in the same tab.
  • Introducing a handy button for opening contact details in a new tab, enhancing user flexibility. This addition addresses user requests for the ability to open multiple contact details tabs while remaining in the conversation session.
  • Added informative tooltips for each icon in the avatar section of the contact tab, making navigation easier.

Other Improvements:

Reputation Management

New Edit Button in Builder

We are excited to introduce a new feature that allows users to pause and resume SMS and email review requests for individual contacts within recurring email and SMS campaigns. Key highlights include:

Enhanced Control: Users now have the flexibility to temporarily stop and restart review requests for specific contacts while maintaining ongoing campaigns.

Individual Contact Management: Manage review requests at the contact level, ensuring tailored communication and optimal customer experience.

How to Pause/stop Email or SMS Review requests for users:

1. Go to ‘Reputation‘ tab

2. Navigate to ‘Requests‘ section

3. Click on ‘Stop/Restart‘ Button to pause or resume review requests for individual contacts



Bulk Import Disclaimer

Users will now see a required disclaimer checkbox in the footer section during the bulk import of contacts. Failing to check this box will prompt users to do so before proceeding to the final step.

Why Are We Doing This?

  • Protect Your Sending Reputation: Importing bulk contacts without proper consent can lead to higher bounce and spam rates, negatively impacting your sending reputation.
  • Prevent Issues with Purchased or Rented Lists: Even if some lists claim to have opt-in consent, they may not be suitable for marketing communication tools. Contacts from purchased or rented sources are likely to bounce, unsubscribe, mark emails as spam, and may cause blocklisting.


  • Enhanced Compliance: Ensures that all imported contacts meet consent standards, protecting your account reputation.
  • Quality Assurance: Helps maintain high-quality contact lists, reducing the risk of bounces and spam complaints.
  • User Accountability: Encourages users to verify their contact sources, promoting responsible marketing practices.




Support for Zero amount Invoices

Users can now create invoices with a 0 net payable amount. Use cases include:

  • Compliance & Record Keeping – They help in tracking and documenting all transactions, which is essential for internal audits and financial transparency. In some jurisdictions, businesses might be required to document all transactions, including those where no payments are made
  • Marketing & Promotions – Issuing a zero amount invoice for complimentary services or goods provided at no charge can serve as a professional way to acknowledge the transaction, reinforcing customer relationships and ensuring clear communication
  • Dispute Resolutions – If a dispute arises regarding the delivery of goods or services, a zero amount invoice serves as proof that the transaction occurred, even though no payment was involved
