Upgrade 19th February 2014 — Updated navigation and external dynamic content

Scheduled maintenance and upgrade for dotMailer on 19th February 2014 includes the following upgrades and changes:

Navigation update

You'll notice a new item in the navigation under Email. The Automation section now includes:

  • Triggers
  • Triggered campaign content
  • Default auto responders

For those enrolled in the beta program for it, it will also include our new automation interface to build marketing automation programs. (If you want a preview of this, come see us at Marketing Sherpa this week or TFM&A next week).

We have also cleaned up which menu item is highlighted when you are in various parts of the application.

External Dynamic Content optimisation

We have made a number of improvements to the performance of External Dynamic Content.

This includes changes to the way we handle links in external dynamic content.
