Email Marketing Features

Save time editing and sharing email designs, new Realtime Block List feature and more…

In our latest update the main areas we’ve focused on are making it easier to design and share Email Templates and we’ve also created a new Realtime Block List feature, plus there’s quite a few smaller tweaks included too!

Here’s summary of what’s included in the update and click through to view the help pages where there’s more detailed help. Also take a look at the related screens where you’ll find handy info panels, hover tips and links to help articles.

Email Designer Compatible Templates

Until now, the only way a Template could be editable using the drag & drop Email Designer was to either create from scratch using the wireframes option or markup HTML source and then upload.

Those two things are still possible but now there’s a few enhancements that make creating compatible Templates much easier…

  • Templates created from wireframes retain markup when downloaded. When uploaded again it means they can still be edited using the Email Designer.
  • Templates containing compatible markup can be shared to one or more Client Accounts.
  • For Templates, being designed offline or uploaded using the API, where protection against editing is required can now being easily created through setting simple edit permission attributes on text or image content.

Other Email Template Design Updates

We’ve also included some other neat updates for creating email designs and using the drag & drop Email Designer feature that we think you’ll love, including…

New Block List Feature

Stopping requests or emails being sent on specified domain names or email addresses is a really useful feature that can help to protect your reputation and reduce complaints.

Blocks can be added at the solution level or set at individual Client Account level and there’s also a setting to control whether the solution level setting gets applied to a Client Account. (Default setting is ‘on’).

Here’s a few of headline features of the Realtime Block List

  • Turn on automated feeds to populate through auto-cleansing for opt-outs, bad mailboxes and FBL complaints.
  • Control the use of bad domains, serial complainants, bad email address, spam traps and any other not-required or toxic data.
  • Track the source and reporting on how domain names and email addresses are being added to the Realtime Block List.
  • Add individual records manually or upload CSV files through the UI.
  • Use the available API endpoints to automated population of and reporting on the Realtime Block List.

To access the Solution Level Block List go to ‘Solution Settings’ then click on ‘Solution Level Block List’.

To access the Realtime Block List for an individual Client Account go to the Lists tab and click on Realtime Block List in the sidebar.

Automation Enhancements

There’s also two enhancements for Workflows included, that whilst smaller than the other updates should prove to be really handy…

  • Start Point on Workflows can be set to update the ‘Last Modified’ date so Users appear at the top of the ‘Recently Updated Users’ feed on the Lists tab.
  • Priority order for Decision Point outcomes can now be reordered from within the sidebar to save having to delete and recreate.
