Welcome to the September 2017 Release Notes! Here’s what's new, delivered, and coming soon for the past month.
Changes & Updates:
Using a Read More Block? You can now resize your image! Just click and drag the arrows in the bottom right corner of the image.
You can now insert Account Details into your campaigns, just like you can insert Contact Details. When editing a Text Block, you can click the Insert Drop-down and choose Account Details.
We mentioned this in August’s Release Notes, and wanted to address a couple of quick things about the ability to drag & drop images directly from your desktop/computer. Reminder: You can now drag your images directly into your campaign, you no longer need to upload it to the library first. Important notes:
In order to drag your images into your campaign you need to drop the image into an image placeholder or drop it over an existing image in your campaign.
Your images will be uploaded to your library so you can easily add them to other campaigns.
You Asked, We Delivered:
3-Column Layout in 3GE Campaigns! Wait, what?! Let me say that again - there is now a 3-Column block you can add into your 3GE campaigns! You’ll find it in the Build Menu section of your emails. Please note, you cannot drag content into a 2-column layout to add a third column, you will need to add in the 3 column layout block from the Build Menu on the left side of the screen, then add your content to the new layout.
Editor’s Note: Technically, this was released in October, but it was live by the time that we posted this article. Since this was such a highly requested feature, we wanted to let you know as soon as it was available!
Now Fixed: If you pasted in double-spaced text from a word processor into your block, you could not change the spacing in our editor (3GE).
An Alexa App! You will soon be able to add Constant Contact as a skill for Alexa. You will be able to ask “How is my campaign doing?” to get stats on your latest campaign and get marketing tips by saying “Give me a marketing tip.”
