Happy New Year, my gifting goonies! If you're like me, you attempted dry January, looked at the state of the world, and poured yourself a glass of wine. If you're not like me...teach me your secrets.
On top of our annual resolutions to better ourselves and practice more #selfcare, we resolved to bring you some radical updates so that we can at least have something to smile about while we mourn Betty White (no, I am not okay). Let's distract ourselves with some cool software updates -- my second favorite coping mechanism.
Best Year Ever Events
Users are now able to add an attendee/send direct invite without the contact having to fill out the landing page
Event administrators are now able to update the video meeting link, description, email messaging, title, images after registration has closed
The Event filter options have changed from "Physical" and "Event Fee" to “Physical Event Kit” or “No Physical Event Kit”
The calendar date select option is now gone. Users will type in three dates manually
Event header image height and the Display tile image now have the same dimensions. Images sizes have been updated.
The meeting link field on Event access emails now reads Meeting Link/Event Access Link for attendee clarity
New Year, New Me: Features and Updates
Gift email expiration information will be visible on orders for Users and Admins. Admins will be provided a link to change Gift Email Settings directly from orders.
An email to Admins will deploy when an Approved Item that is a part of an active Campaign or Automation has dropped below 20 available units. The email will specify where the Item lives (campaigns, MagicLink, etc.) and include a link to replace/remove the Item
An email column has been added to the contact display
Collections now have internal Collection Name and external Display Name fields available during set up
#SelfCare Platform Improvements
Tooltips have been added for each branding color to outline where they show up in gift emails
MagicLink landing page language now distinguishes between orders bounced due to "maximum redemptions met" and "link expired"
Added character count limits to the Physical Message area of Item setup
Default Postal colors will load in branding, ability to see sample elements like button and texts
Button for sending events now says "Send Event” instead of “Send Item”
Minor Fixes (Because Any Progress is Good Progress)
Calendar bookings were not always honoring OOO settings, they now do
Brand colors were misaligned, they are now aligned
We're out here doing our best, trying our hardest, and we know you are too. Whether you're self-improving, self-reflecting, or simply trying to survive another year, know that the one thing that will always be stable in your life is Postal Product Updates. Yaaaaay?
