Upgrade 10 April 2013 — Improved campaign preview

Scheduled maintenance and upgrade for dotMailer on 10th April 2013 includes the following upgrades and changes:

Improved campaign preview

The campaign preview has been redesigned and improved with added functionality to include tablet and mobile previewing. You can of course do everything you used to be able to do, but you can also now switch images on and off, preview any dynamic content or split tests you may have, switch between desktop, tablet and mobile previews, as well as switch between portrait and landscape views for these devices.

Please note that there are browser restrictions with regards to tablet and mobile previewing. It is not available in IE (Trident-based) but it is available in Chrome, Safari (WebKit-based) and Firefox (Gecko-based).

It must also be stressed that the preview tool is only an approximation of how campaigns will look in these devices. If more accuracy is required then it is best to run an inbox test. To read more about the difference between the preview tool and inbox testing, click here.
