Campaign Tool Adds Significant Sending and Reporting Capabilities

Our Campaigns tool has been updated with amazing new features to help your event communications.

Here is a quick list:

  • Recipient campaign list allows the event organizer to review recipients of a specific campaign. This tool includes a ‘resend’ button, a filterable report, and ability to view the status of emails (sent, bounced, etc.)
  • Campaign send test option will give organizers an opportunity to send a test email to an email address of their choice, previewing before completing the campaign setup
  • Delay send campaigns have extended and you can now delay sending an email by up to 1 year
  • A campaign reply to field has been added so that the email can be ‘sent’ from one specific email, but responses can be directed to another email account
