June 2023 Yespo CDP Updates
In June, Yespo technical specialists updated our system to make your work even more convenient. In this article, we have collected the most important updates. Most of them are related to widgets, scenarios, and reports.
This feature allows for decreasing site visitors' annoyance level and setting silence intervals between displaying widgets. This is useful if two or more floating widgets are displayed simultaneously or alternately. The feature is relevant for:
- Floating box
- Floating bar
By default, this feature is enabled with a pause between widget displays of 3 minutes.
You can set the pause in seconds, minutes, and the number of viewed pages on the site.
Slider – Our New Component
A slider allows you to add multiple identical elements to show the user more offers. You can customize the forward\back buttons, the display, and the appearance of the entire component.
Settings on the General tab apply to the current slide.
Slides can be swapped, added, deleted, duplicated, and renamed.
Number of New Contacts
We have added information about the number of contacts created through subscription forms.
Contacts that were created through forms before this functionality was implemented are displayed under a question mark.
New Image Formats
Two new image formats are now supported: WebP and AVIF. They are designed to create smaller files while maintaining high image quality.
Showing Widgets to a Specific Segment
In the "Display conditions", we have added an opportunity to choose a segment of contacts, who will see the widget.
This feature works for identified contacts: subscribed to any widget or web push, subscribed, or clicked on a letter.
Added waiting sign to a block
If sending during business hours is selected in the block parameters, then a corresponding mark will appear on the block icon.
Workflow stop description
The workflow run history now shows the reason why the workflow stopped if it happened under a stop condition.
"Before the start" Events Checking
You can set the workflow to stop after checking for an event that occurred before the workflow started. By default, this period is not set, so the event is checked only from the moment the workflow starts.
The option is available for:
- workflow start ("Start" block, "Timer")
- block “Check event”
In the workflows, a new block was added – the condition "Sent?" to check whether a message has been sent.
General Date Format
A new date format of the form YYYY-MM-DD and YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm is supported for events and scenarios. The changes are applicable for:
- checks for "Date" and "Date/Time" variables when validating event parameters passed via contactJson,
- transfer of additional fields to the block "Create contact", "Update contact", "Update contact fields".
The new date format was always supported for the "Start by time" and "Condition" blocks.
Update for Generate Event
In the Generate event, the required parameter keyValue is now optional.
If you don't pass this parameter, it will be automatically filled in based on one of the locators passed in params by the following priorities:
- pushToken (web or mobile).
If none of the required locators is passed, error 400 and the text “Set keyValue or one of the contact identifiers like externalCustomerId, email, etc” will be displayed.
Two New API Resources
We have added two new resources for adding and removing contacts from the group:
You can transfer a list of contacts either by contactId or by externalCustomerId (only one parameter is possible in one request). The limit for resources is up to 500 contacts in one request.
A limit of 10 requests per second has been added for the Get Contact’s message history resource.
Displaying Message ID in Reports
ID will appear in bulk and trigger reports for all media channels. This option will allow you to quickly copy and search exactly the sent message.
Unloading the Number of Purchases
On the general list of reports, you can click to view purchases and download the list to a group or file of purchases that were linked to a specific newsletter. Contacts with purchases can be exported to a group or a CSV file.
Export from the Table of Clicks
We have added the ability to export contacts to a CSV file. The export is carried out by sending an email letter with a file of exported contacts.
The option is available for users with export rights.
Displaying the Number of Web Push Tokens
In the "Settings" → Web Push section for configured projects, the number of contacts with collected push tokens is displayed.
Sending Pushes to All Domains
If several domains are linked to the account, you can select all domains at once when planning push notifications delivery to all contacts.
The new type of link can be activated with the "Secure link" checkbox. This will prevent automatic or bulk access to the link to protect against unwanted activity. For example, this is relevant in confirmation letters.
Additional Fields for Recommendations
We have added the ability to use CATEGORY_PARENT and CATEGORY_GRANDPARENT in data source rules, which allows you to not change the feed and use the top levels of the category for display.
Warning About Unavailable Links
If there are broken links in the message, the editor validates them and displays them when editing or trying to send the message. The warning is supported for all message types that may contain links. It does not prohibit sending a message and is designed for your information.
The Name of the Message in the Dynamic Content
You can now use the message name %MESSAGENAME% to personalize your message. It is supported for all types of media and mailings.
