This release includes our workflow automation module. This huge module enables any type of automated workflow to be created,
include drip campaigns, shopping cart abandonments, webinar reminders, lead nurturing, on-boarding, and more.
Additionally, the interface now allows segments to be copied, speeding the process of creating segments when key conditions have already been defined.
This release includes one significant new feature and many enhancements. Here are the changes:
A new look – Symphonie's administrative interface now adjusts its screen size to fit your device. It is scalable from large desktop monitors to small tablets and mobile devices.
New custom tables feature – The Offline Events feature in Symphonie 3.9 lets you create custom tables to hold data extracted from sources outside of Symphonie. This makes it possible to create segments, schedule event-based mailings, and modify dynamic content based on information that is not part of your basic subscriber information. Click here for more information.
Better compatibility – Browsers such as Firefox, Safari, and Chrome are constantly modifying their features to keep up with changing technology. With each new iteration of these browsers, we review the changes and adjust Symphonie accordingly.
Enhanced Hyperlink Manager – The Hyperlink Manager has been enhanced to make it easier to create dynamic links using mail merge tags and dynamic code logic to create the link or query string arguments. With the Hyperlink Manager you can create dynamically changeable links, build unique query strings based on subscriber information, and much more. Control virtually every aspect of a link with this powerful tool.
Enhanced Image Manager – Keep your images in Symphonie organized and easy to find with Symphonie's enhanced Image Manager. Create folders and subfolders for all the images you use in your email marketing campaigns, move images around, and upload multiple images at once, all from one easy-to-use window.
Enhanced content editor – The content editor screens have been updated to make it easier to get to the plain text section and new menus and features makes it even easier to add dynamic content to your message, subject line, or headers. Additionally, a new audience tab makes it easy to change the segment or unsubscribe topic after the email has been initially created.
Enhanced recipient and demographic controls – The interface for searching for recipients has been enhanced, allowing for searching based on any demographic field. Demographics now allow for a custom sort order, to put the demographics you are most interested in near the top.
Enhanced preview screens – The already powerful preview functionality has been enhanced even more to allow for a simple toggle between multiple recipients to quickly see the differences in their content, as well as new preview screens, including a mobile version.
Additional web analytic vendors supported – In addition to Google, Symphonie now supports web analytics vendors IBM Digital Analytics (Formally Coremetrics), Omniture, and WebTrends.
Auto imports – A new feature is the ability to easily configure automatic recipient or offline imports into Symphonie, with a follow-up status email. Great for automating import routines!
Every new release has updates to the logic for recognizing the proper classification of failures when sending emails and tuning of the mail sending engine for optimal deliverability.
This release includes several new features and some bug fixes. Here are the changes:
Faster queuing speeds - In Symphonie 3.5, requests to send transactional emails can be queued via the API at almost twice the previous speed.
Faster Content Block lists - In previous version of Symphonie if you had thousands of Content Blocks, the selection screen to choose one for Dynamic Content was slow to display. Now it is considerably faster.
50/50 A/B splits are now possible - The A/B Split feature now lets you create mailings that send different versions of the email to each half of the people on your list, without adjustments based on the results.
More pivot report options than ever - The pivot feature has been extended to work with document reports as well as well as promotional mailings. For the email marketer that makes extensive use of API-based mailings, this feature makes your work easier with the ability to see in an instant which mailings are the most effective.
New ability to designate a time zone for demographics - With dynamic content, segmentation, and other scheduled tasks the system needs to know the time zone of a demographic column in order to make the proper date calculations. Now the system supports designating a time zone for demographics, so it will know that 3:00pm means 3:00pm EST, for example.
Additionally, every new release has updates to the logic for recognizing the proper classification of failures when sending emails and tuning of the mail sending engine for optimal deliverability.
This release features several new features and some bug fixes. Here are the changes:
Dashboard — the dashboard has been improved to add a calendar view.
The calendar view shows the mailing and transactional emails sent for that month.
You can move to previous months, or pick a month to view from the dropdown.
A total of the number of transactional emails sent during that day is shown on each
calendar day. Select a mailing by clicking on the calendar and get a popup
of the key details of the mailing, including a thumbnail image of the contents.
See all the most important information here, and export the results to send to other
interested parties. You can also jump straight to the full report or back to the
content editor with a single click.
Click on the transactional number and get a popup of the key metrics for all the transactional emails sent for that day, including information about deliverability, opens, and clickthrough rates. As with mailings, this information can be exported and you can jump directly to further reports.
New transactional report grouping option — this new feature of the API allows the sender of a transactional email to give one or more "category" names to the sending, which then can be used later as an option when reporting. This allows transactional emails to be grouped together and reported on more like a mailing, but still maintaining the flexibility of sending the transactional email whenever desired. When sending a transactional email using the API a user could assign it to a group of "Store 128" as well as a category of "Birthday Coupons." Later reports can be pulled for either of these groups, and any transactional email sent with the category will be organized for reports on opens, clicks, or deliverability.
Improvements in internationalization support — we've always tried to make Symphonie work well for the international audience, and some cases were identified where some display items were shown in English when they should have been shown in the user's selected culture. This includes some display of calendars, time and date formatting, currency formatting, and number display. Improvements were made to a number of pages throughout Symphonie.
Compatibility improvements — a small number of customers had occasional problems in Firefox in the send test mail/document pages, as well as the preview mailing/document pages, so those pages have been reworked to make them more compliant with current technologies.
|Create single-use barcodes based on specific information such as recipient name, location, status, or age. Barcodes are easily adjusted according to your point-of-sale system, with either complete recipient data gathered on-site, or coded information that can feed back into your database for targeted results. Since the information is gathered at the point-of-sale, you can coordinate your marketing information with actual sales for more accurate ROI reports.|
