Forms & Surveys

Split Payment Element into Sell Products and Collect Amount

The Payment element has been split into two distinct elements, Sell Products and Collect Amount. This change brings enhanced functionality and improved user experience.

Sell Products

The Sell Products element is designed for users who want to sell physical or digital products directly through their forms. This element provides an easy way to manage your product catalog and streamline the selling process.

Collect Amount

The Collect Amount element is ideal for situations where you need to collect a specific amount of money, such as donations, service fees, or custom payments.


Enhanced UI/UX: Redesigned interface for easier navigation and better usability.

How to Use the New Elements

  • To start using the new Sell Products and Collect Amount elements:
  • Open the Form Builder.
  • Select the element you wish to add from the new Payment section.
  • Configure the settings according to your needs.
  • Publish your form and start collecting payments!



Email action, Stats View Changes, and Error handling

What’s New?

  • New validation added – If “From Email” field is entered then “From Name” is mandatory.
  • In the builder stats will be available for only 30 days. Detailed stats can be seen within the actions.
  • Attempting to load a deleted workflow using a URL will produce an error message/pop up stating that “Workflow was not found”.


Email Builder

Managing Send Now Campaigns With A Large Number Of Contacts

Previously, for send-now campaigns with more than 2000 contacts, the status was incorrectly shown as “scheduled” until completion. In contrast, bulk actions displayed “processing.” This inconsistency has been resolved.

The status will now accurately display as “sending,” and users can view the ongoing statistics as emails are sent to the remaining contacts.

Why This Matters: These improvements provide a more intuitive and transparent experience for users, allowing them to better track and manage their campaigns.



Retry Payment & WABA Account Rejected

  • Retry WhatsApp Payment: We’ve introduced a new “Retry Payment” button for WhatsApp subscriptions. If an automatic payment fails, users can now manually retry the payment, ensuring uninterrupted access to their WhatsApp services.
  • WABA Account Rejected: If a WhatsApp Business account is rejected by Meta, users will now see an error message and be redirected to the Meta Business Support Home for assistance.


Delivery Status and Missed Call in Workflows 

You can now use if/else conditions based on WhatsApp delivery status to determine the next steps in your workflow. We’ve added a toggle to hold the contact in the workflow until we receive the delivery status from Meta. This ensures seamless communication by enabling a failover to SMS or Email if a WhatsApp message fails.

Delivery Status

  • Failover Mechanism: Automatically send SMS or Email to customers when a WhatsApp message fails to deliver, ensuring no communication is missed.
  • Optimized Deliverability: Enhance the overall effectiveness and reliability of your communications by leveraging multiple channels.
  • Recipe for WhatsApp Delivery Status: You can use WhatsApp Delivery Status recipe to get started with workflows

How It Works:

  • Navigate to the Automation > Create Workflow
  • Select WhatsApp Action
  • Add Action > If/Else
  • Select Contact Details > Valid WhatsApp > Add conditions for True and False
  • Add failover to SMS/Email for False and None Branch


Missed Call WhatsApp Back 

We have released the Missed Call WhatsApp-Back feature. When a call from a lead is missed, an automatic WhatsApp reply will be sent to the lead, and the assigned user will be notified to follow up. Users can leverage the recipe to create missed call WhatsApp back workflow

Documents & Contracts

Live Custom Value rendering for Better final PDFs and Element placement

What’s New?

  • Auto-populate Custom Variables: When you type a custom variable in the format {{custom_variable}}, the corresponding value is automatically populated. If no primary contact is selected, the custom variables will not render any values.
  • Backspace/Delete Key Handling: When you press the backspace or delete key: If the cursor is within the populated value, the value is removed, reverting to the custom variable template.
  • The custom variable template (e.g., {{name}}) can be edited seamlessly by removing characters from the end (e.g., {{name}} to {{name to {{nam).Editable Custom Variable Templates: You can edit the custom variable template, ensuring it remains in the format {{custom_variable}} until fully deleted.

How to Use?

  • Type a custom variable in the format {{custom_variable}} within the document builder. If a primary contact is selected, the custom variable will automatically populate with the corresponding value.
  • If no primary contact is selected, the custom variable will remain as {{custom_variable}} without rendering any value.
  • Handling Backspace/Delete Key: Place the cursor within a populated custom variable value and press backspace or delete to remove the value. The text reverts to the custom variable template. Edit the custom variable template by deleting characters, ensuring it remains editable and updates accordingly (e.g., {{name}} to {{nam}}).



Sort and Filter feature

Revamped Tax UI

Earlier we used to display taxes in-line for an item leading to cluttered UI. Moving away from this approach, we have introduced a new column which shows a cumulative total of the taxes.

Detailed Breakdown of Taxes

Now in the Order Summary, we have a detailed breakdown of taxes and how the calculation was done to end up at that particular value. We have also added in a tooltip when hovered gives details of all the taxes applied for that particular invoice item.

We have also introduced changes in the mobile view of the invoices where we have now cleared up the clutter and added in a single line which displays the total tax.

Where to Find the Changes

  • Go to Payments -> Invoices
  • In the invoice editor, by create a new invoice or edit an existing one to see the newly introduced tax column
  • Open the preview of the invoice created and see the revamped tax UI there


Social Planner

FB & IG Tokens

Social Planner has improved the social integration of Facebook and Instagram tokens. Previously, the token required reconnection after 90 days or earlier due to security or permission changes.

Now, as long as the account keeps posting regularly, the social token will get updated forever with each post published. If the account stops publishing regularly, it will have 60 day token expiry.
