  • Campaign enhancements:
  • Four statuses are now available for campaigns:
  • Draft: An inactive campaign saved, but not yet deployed (i.e., in the process of filling out the fields for a new campaign)
  • Published: A saved campaign with all required fields validated, but not yet deployed (i.e., a new campaign is fully created but hasn’t been used yet)
  • Scheduled: An active campaign planned for a set time window. Once the scheduled campaign is run, the status will change to Active.
  • Active: A campaign that is actively running
  • The Action column on the Campaigns page was renamed Run 
  • The green arrow icon in the Run column on the Campaigns page is only available for campaigns in Published status.
  • Click the Save Draft button at any time during the creation of a new campaign to save your progress. Your draft campaign can be closed and accessed later on the Campaigns page.
  • After clicking the Publish button on a new campaign, red error text will populate next any incomplete or missing fields.
  • Click the Run Campaign button on the New Campaign page to run your campaign from the creation page. After you click Save Draft and Publish, the Run Campaign button appears.

  • You can now indicate which header should be used as the method of contact for your campaign.
