A contact is now created when someone submits a ticket. That way you can see the ticket on that contact's screen, and you can add notes to the contact on the ticket.

We've added a bunch more columns to the participants table for a product, so you can more easily see things like gift status or agreement status.
Feature
26 days ago

Product agreements

For some products, especially things like high-end coaching programs, it's helpful with a more detailed, explicit agreement before the customer gets access to whatever they've purchased. Some people have been hacking this using Worksheets, but we figured we'd support it properly. Go to Proudct > Content, and check the box that says 'Needs agreement', and simply enter the text of the agreement. We'll take it from there and make sure people 'sign' the agreement before they get access to whatever they're supposed to get access to. If you're purchasing for someone else, then we'll email the person receiving the product asking them to sign the agreement to get started. The admin interface will show you when a participant agreed and from what IP address.
Improvement

Comments on your blogs, forums, and lessons look way better now. Implemented by our new developer, Jason.

Fixed the issues with our newly released conditions engine, and added two new filters on the Contacts table: Product as purchaser, and product as participant.

Feature
43 days ago

2-step opt-in on landing pages and site pages

You can now add the much coveted 2-step opt-in for landing pages. You know, the one where you click a button, and the opt-in fields open in a modal, with a little progress bar showing 50%, because, presumable, clicking the button was the first 50%... woot!! Check it out. Go to a landing page, and add a section
Improvement
43 days ago
Added a simple spam bot combating measure to the contact form. If that doesn't solve it, we'll have to step up our game another notch. Fucking spammers. They make everyone's lives miserable. They must feel like shit. Let's give them some love ... and some firm boundaries.
Feature
43 days ago

Conditions

We've added a super powerful fully flexible conditions engine to Simplero. This lets you do things like filter by geography, tags, when they signed up, and much more, and COMBINE those with AND and OR and all that jazz. For now, we've only added it to automations and automation steps, so you can tell an automation or a step to only run based on those conditions. Next up is Segments, then Broadcasts, and then Auto-Responses (so you can skip a certain auto-response if they already bought some product, for example), then Prices, and finally Newsletters. This is something that's been on my wishlist for a LONG time, and I'm really excited that we're finally making headways on it.

Oops! Ticket total times open and pending are now more accurate.

Feature
47 days ago

Self-liquidating (or magically appearing) page sections

You can now make any section on a page or landing page automagically appear or disappear a certain amount of time after the page loads. That can be super helpful for one time offers that only show up after a certain period of time, or maybe you have a countdown timer, and the offer goes away after x minutes? Play around with it. It's fun!

Use internal name for the products when managing your product catalog
Improvement
59 days ago

Custom fields API

We've improved how our API handles custom fields, with documentation on how to update them, as well as more powerful ways to read the information. To help you find what names to use for the fields when using the API, we've now added that information to the admin interface. Go to Contacts > Fields, click 'Edit' on one of the fields, and you'll see the link that says 'Show field names for API'. It shows you the field names like this. In the process we've also added two new API endpoints, 'Get contact by ID' and 'Find contact by email'. See our API documentation.
Improvement
59 days ago
You can now upload videos directly from the sharable link you get from zoom, the one that gives you a web page with the video, instead of having to hunt for the link to the actual video file. I have no idea if this sentence makes sense to you, but just try it out. -Calvin

Improvement
62 days ago
Reorganized the list of actions for automations and triggers and other things, so that the most common ones are at the top: email, text messages, and tags.
Feature
62 days ago

Skip automation step when wait exceeded

If you have a sequence that sends an email per day for 10 days leading up to the start of a course. If someone joins 2 days before, you don't want them to get the first 8 emails all at once. You only want them to get the last 2. That's exactly what this allows you to do. You can now tell an automation that it should skip a given step if the wait time has been exceeded. So if they join the automation after the time that we'd want to wait until, then we just continue right along to the next step.
Feature
66 days ago
Added a trigger on products for when a purchase has auto-renew turned off or on. This lets you initiate an automation that attempts to convince people to stay in your membership before their subscription actually expieres.

Course lesson additional content

The way we displayed additional content on course lessons was a bit confusing. The filenames were kinda ugly and not terribly helpful, and they were too close to each other. Both of those have been fixed now. We WILL be adding the ability to add more content blocks on a course lesson, ie. more flexibility on how you structure your course lessons, but not right this instant. Please be patient a little longer.

Made it possible to turn off auto-advance on testimonials sections on sites and landing pages. And defaulting to off, because it makes it hard for people to read ... as you're in the middle of reading one, it advances on you. Whoops! (Hat tip, Samuel Hulick for the usability point)

Improvements to the email containing login information

The subject line now includes the name of your account, as well as the name of the membership site or product they get access to, so it's more clear what this email is about.

Top-Right Call-to-Action

The top-right corner of your website is prime real estate for a permanent call to action (CTA). It is smart to put something important there. And now it's super esay.

Improved video encoding capacity and feedback

We've implemented some upgrades to our video encoding infrastructure that'll give us more capacity on-demand, so we can handle it when a lot of people upload videos all at once, or a few people upload a bunch of videos all at once. Until now, scaling has been a manual process. Now it's automatic. The last few days have been especially problematic because of network issues at Amazon. We've now made the code more robust in the case of network issues. The network issues meant that sometimes it could take half an hour or more just to download the file from storage to the server doing the encoding, and there was zero visibility into the download progress, or the upload progress when encoding was done. There is now. The progress bar will move as the file is downloaded at the beginning, and the output uploaded back to storage at the end. We will also retry the upload multiple times in case of network issues, so we don't lose all the hard work our servers have done encoding the videos. –Calvin

Delayed EU VAT number validation

I love that the EU can put strong penalties on us if we don't validate EU VAT numbers, yet not manage to keep their EU VAT number validation service running reliably. I guess we'll just have to deal with it. Now if there's an error talking to the VIES service, we'll allow the VAT number through, but not mark it as validated. Then we'll keep trying to conncet to VIES each ten minutes until we get either a yes or a no on that VAT number. We'll tell you in the admin interface what we found and when it was validated or not.

The 'Your Account' in the drop-down menu on websites on your Simplero account now link to people's 'Your Account' page for your Simplero account only, instead of the 'Your Global Account' that shows evertyhing they've purchased on Simplero. I feel like that makes more sense for your customers. They don't need to know that you're using Simplero. At the same time, we've made it a bit easier to navigate to 'Your Global Account', though not quite as easy/confusing as it was about a month ago. I know the nomenclature here is confusing. Haven't figured out how to resolve this yet.

Credits

Named units that you can grant, sell, consume, so you can sell it now to be consumed later. Eg. 10 sessions for $x, and those sessions can be consumed when needed. You create a product for it, you can have prices that require a minimum quantity purchase, you can even create subscriptions where credits are granted each month/week/etc. Credits can have an expiration so if they're not consumed within that time frame, they expire.

When resuming a paused flow, what we used to do was calculate how long it was paused for (say 10 days), and just add that to the current wait time. So if it was originally to continue on Sep 1st, it'd now resume on Sep 10th. If you're doing something on a specific schedule, though, eg. the 1st of each month, or each Monday, then that's not helpful, because now it's thrown off schedule. It's a bit complicated, but here's what we came up with: * If you're waiting for a duration * If there are no adjustments (time of day, weekday, day of month), we just extend wait time with how long it was paused for. * Otherwise if the original time to continue has passed, recalculate the adjustments from now * All other wait times, we recalculate from now, in case the field value has changed, or the birthday or subscription period has passed. This is all a bit complicated, but I think this should do what people would expect in every case. If not, we'll have to adjust again until we get it right. -Calvin
