ConvertKit Integration Updates

We've updated our ConvertKit integration which will now support all of the following fields:

  • Email Address
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Address 1
  • Address 2
  • City
  • State
  • Zip Code
  • Country
  • Phone
  • Birthday
  • Referral Link
  • Campaign Name (if using our tracking links feature)
  • Referral Source

In addition, our integration now also supports tags. We will pull in all of your tags in ConvertKit and you can choose as many tags as you'd like to apply to a user. Your tag must exist in ConvertKit first in order for us to apply the tag.

Finally, in order for us to pass all of the above fields to ConvertKit, you MUST manually add these fields to a subscriber. Please see our documentation to learn more.

Messaging System

We've updated our messaging system so that it is now a standalone feature, and no longer integrated into the main dashboard at all times next to the live feed (which was also removed).

Whenever you have a new message, you'll see the notification for it in the navigation on the left hand side.

Clicking on messages will slide out the messages panel, where you can access all of your messages.

New Dashboard Navigation

We've completely revamped the dashboard navigation.

On the left hand side at the top you can now access all brands under the home button.

Below that is the button to create new promotions.

Below that are your campaigns (we'll be expanding on this soon!)

Finally, we've removed the live feed (for now) and moved messaging to it's own section. At the bottom of the nav you'll find your account settings.

Our goal with this update is to:

  • Streamline the dashboard and bring more important things into view like your campaigns and data.
  • Cut down on clutter
  • Eliminate the live feed which caused clutter in the dashboard (we'll be adding this separately later on in its own section)
  • Allow for new campaign types to be added to the left hand navigation (more on this soon).
  • Make browsing your dashboard easier with all controls accessible at all times from the navigation.
  • Move the navigation out of your way when viewing data, or creating campaigns, but still have it accessible.

We hope you like it!

Test Mode Changes

We've updated the way Test Mode now works. Previously, you needed to manually switch your campaign from Test Mode to Live when you were ready to start collecting valid entries on your campaign.

We've found that a large majority of users forget to switch the campaign live while promoting it, which means all entries were being marked as test entries.

We've changed this to now automatically set your campaign from Test to Live on the start date. If you manually switch your campaign back to Test Mode after the start date then you will need to manually set it to Live again.

Emarsys Events

We've updated our Emarsys integration to now include events. When connecting to Emarsys and selecting a list, you'll also have the option of selecting an event, which can be used to trigger emails from within Emarsys.

Zapier update for Referrals App

We've updated our Zapier integration for our Referrals App which will now allow you to fire a zap when a user unlocks a new referral tier.

The zap will include all of the users information, as well as the # of referrals they had when unlocking a tier, and the prize they unlocked.

Webhook for Referrals App

We've updated our webhook feature for our Referrals App which will now allow you to fire a webhook each time a user unlocks a new referral tier.

The updated webhook we'll send will include all of the users information, as well as the prize they unlocked and the number of referrals they had.

Just find the option for Fire webhook on referral achievements? and turn it on.

  • Address 2

  • Phone
  • Birthday
  • Referral Link

Modify Vote Numbers

Campaign owners can now modify vote numbers on contest submissions if needed. To modify votes, simply navigate to Entrants --> Moderate and click on the submission you need to edit.

Here are some typical use cases where this can be useful:

  • You are testing out voting, and you need to reset votes to 0.
  • You've detected fraud votes via our voter log and need to eliminate them.
  • Paper ballot votes need to be added to the system.

Please Note: This feature is intended only for legitimate modifications of votes. If we find that you have purposely modified or tampered with votes to defraud users, your account will be suspended or removed.

System Maintenance (May 19)

We have a scheduled maintenance window on Saturday May 19th, 2018 between 12:00AM and 6:00AM (EDT). We do not expect services to be down or offline, however, there will be increased load times and or latency. We will post updates if there are any changes.
