We can’t believe the rate we are getting new features and changes out in dotMailer, but here’s yet more awesome things that have been implemented in the tool…
Test sends from EasyEditor
You’ve just created your fab campaign in the editor and now you need to test send it – see how it really looks in your inbox. Until now, you would have to go to the plain text version then onto the test send page; a lengthy process at times! Now you can test-send directly from the editor – Hurrah!
It’s now much easier to do a test-send, proof and edit of your HTML version, saving you lots of time and making sure your campaign is as perfect as possible. With up to 50 test send addresses available, you can send it to lots of people for proofing.
Don’t forget to test send your plain text campaign too.
Email approval within the app
Even more awesome than test sends direct from the editor, we have now developed a new workflow process that enables you to submit your campaign for approval and get valuable feedback all inside the app.
Available for enterprise level accounts, where the person writing the campaign does not have authority to send it out themselves they can follow the below process
- Campaign is complete – including address books and scheduling, writer hits “Ready to send pending approval”.
- Manager reviews campaign (content, addressees, scheduling…) and declines with a reason
- Campaign writer gets notification, with reason, edits campaign – tries to send for approval again
- Manager review and approves campaign, it is sent out immediately (or as scheduled)
A great way to enforce that campaign content gets reviewed and a great way of opening the lines of communication within you organisation .
It can also be set up for Parent / Child accounts – so a child account can’t send without parent account approving.
