We've made some improvements to ActionButton

  • Members of devolved parliaments in the UK can now be contacted with the Contact Your Lawmaker button.
  • All lawmakers contacted now receive distinct emails. We used to send one email that contained all lawmakers' names in the salutations (ie “Dear Senator Padilla and Congresswoman Eshoo”).
  • We improved the integration between ActionButton and NationBuilder: petition and opinion actions can be added as the source of an automation, and opinion data is now synced.

We're working on improving our texting features! Today, we’re releasing two updates 🎉

🔗 Link shortening

We’ve created a new tool that allows you to shorten your URLs in just a few clicks while crafting your text blast. This will help you save characters and squeeze in more information so they can drive even more action.

📱10DLC registration for better deliverability (US recipients only)

The Campaign Registry is introducing a registration process called A2P 10DLC. Registering your organization will not only increase the rate at which your text messages are delivered but will also protect your text delivery to make sure your messages continue to reach your intended audiences. The monthly rate is $5 for low-volume senders and $16 for high-volume senders. Standard customers can now easily get registered in their control panel, on the ‘Add-ons’ page.

🔗 Trackable links

We recently released a tool that allows you to shorten URLs and optimize your text blast by saving characters. The shortened links are trackable, and you can now see exactly how many people clicked in the email blast overview of your broadcaster.

🔍 New filters

We’ve added 2 new filters to the people section to help you make data-driven decisions and take action. You can now filter for:

  • Sent - people who have been sent one or more specific text blasts
  • Clicked - text blast recipients who have clicked a shortened link in one or more specific text blasts

The theme step is now the first step in creating a new email blast! Why do this?

  • To provide a user experience that better supports the user’s intuitive decision-making process, starting with “What kind of email blast do I want to send? Do I want to clone a previous email blast?”
  • When cloning a previous email blast, the user no longer has to click through the Theme step.
  • No more wasted time on filling out the entire Settings form before encountering the Clone option at the bottom.
  • No more confusing warning modal when changing themes on a brand new email blast.

🌟 ActionButton

  • Several customers have wanted a way to target state senators and state representatives separately - now they can!

✉️ Email

  • When sending a 1:1 email and ccing someone, the behavior used to be that these cc recipients were automatically cced in any email created later. We’ve changed that so they are no longer added to new emails.

😊 People

  • Some tags didn’t populate as a recipient option in broadcasters for texting, this has been fixed!
    We added status_reason as a membership liquid drop

💸 Finances

  • You used to be able to change the payment type for a credit card through an import and break all the transactions. This is no longer possible!
