WHAT'S FRESH? 

THESE ARE THE RECENT CHANGES TO SIMPLERO

Improvement
Dec 10, 2020

Labels are too useful to hide in the overstuffed "Account settings" page, so now they have a settings page all to themselves.

Optimization
Dec 9, 2020

The purchases table should load much faster now.

Improvement
Dec 9, 2020

Always grab a few animated GIFs for each video you upload

We make two from the beginning, one from the end, and one in the middle. You can add additional animated GIFs anytime you want.

Improvement
Dec 9, 2020

Bringing the 'All' tab back in the media dialog, and making the search persistent across tabs ... and into the Stock photos tab

Improvement
Dec 9, 2020

If you're having problems with bots signing up for your lists, you can try a setting we've added on the Confirmation tab on lists that will make it so all signups, not just ones we deem suspicious, are bot-checked.

Improvement
Dec 9, 2020

Course navigation now sticks to the top while consuming a course lesson.

Improvement
Dec 9, 2020

SVG images you use on your pages are now included in the same way as any other image type. This should make them display in a more consistent manner.

Fix
Dec 8, 2020

When creating a segment or broadcast for members of a private site, it will no longer include members who do not have permission to view the site (such as those with expired subscriptions).

Improvement
Dec 8, 2020

Removed the Your Sites menu on membership sites and websites

Both your website and your membership sites had this menu called Your Sites which would list all other membership sites that the person had access to. It was a little confusing, and added an additional menu item, taking up valuable space in your header. I've now moved that functionality to the user/login menu to the far right, cleaning up the menu bar. While I was at it, I separated out links to Your Profile and Your Account. Your Profile is your name, photo, bio, etc. Your Account is where you access all the stuff you've bought on Simplero, your affiliate accounts, and more. This will make it faster & easier to get to your profile, which is something a lot of people will want to do. We do want to do a deeper redesign of the whole Your Account/Your Profile area of the app, but for now, this is a move in a cleaner direction.

Improvement

Cleaned up your customers' 'Your Account' area

'Your Account' is the area where your customers can go find all their stuff. Their purchases, membership sites, affiliate accounts, profile, etc. We do want to do a deeper redesign of this, but for now, I cleaned up how we display the links and the menu to make it a bit more clear. -CC

Feature
Dec 7, 2020

New page section: Text inside a scrollbar

This will allow you to write text constrained to a maximum height - if the text grows longer than your specified height, it will automatically get a scrollbar and remain at that height.

Improvement
Dec 7, 2020

We've updated the list of countries on the order form and are now displaying country names in the same language as the rest of the form.

Improvement
Dec 5, 2020

When you're done writing a newsletter and you're ready to queue it, we'll now show when the newsletter will go out right there next to the button.

Improvement
Dec 5, 2020

Cleaned up the columns we show for purchases for an affiliate program. They don't all make sense in this context, and it was getting crowded.

Feature
Dec 4, 2020

Added new triggers for when a known contact visits the order form when sales are closed, or the product has been sold out.

Optimization
Dec 3, 2020

We now process delivery events much faster, so you should never be wondering for hours (or even minutes) if your broadcast really got delivered.

Improvement
Dec 3, 2020

Streamlined a few things about the media dialog and the WYSIWYG editor as it relates to the media dialog

Improvement
Dec 2, 2020

Site members can now edit and delete their own forum posts and comments.

Feature
Dec 2, 2020

You can now add triggers that run exclusively on clicking an expired/unexpired link!

Feature
Dec 2, 2020

We've added a built-in tab that lets you review the emails you sent that bounced. See it on the Recipients page of your sent broadcasts and automation emails.

Improvement
Dec 2, 2020

Acceptance fields are now properly displayed on embedded landing pages - with their label & content.

Improvement
Dec 1, 2020

When choosing when product is available for sale, also show any prices with time restrictions, to avoid annoying snafus.

Improvement
Dec 1, 2020

Cleaned up the Broadcast report page. The right sidebar was pretty messy. Now it's a lot neater. Look for more links in the '...' menu on the top-right.

Improvement
Nov 30, 2020

On an affiliate program, moved the Payouts tab up before the separator for consistency.

Improvement
Nov 30, 2020

Tags now have an owner and a description, and a page where you can more easily manage and edit triggers.

Improvement
Nov 30, 2020

Show purchases for an affiliate program

Improvement
Nov 27, 2020

You can now include commission percent in mailings. Note, though, that it only works when the recipient is an Affiliate. Otherwise it'll just give you an empty string.

Fix
Nov 27, 2020

The URL of a landing page would be based on the internal name you gave the page, rather than the publicly visible title of the page

Improvement
Nov 27, 2020

Added four new filters on Subscriptions table: First name, last name, email, and Do Not Contact

Improvement
Nov 27, 2020

Ticket reassignments without comments will now be recorded as an internal note instead of a blank comment.

Improvement
Nov 27, 2020

We now show Related Contacts at the bottom of the sidebar for a Contact. This will show any contact with the same email (can happen when people register twice with different emails, then change their email on one to be the same as the other), or contacts that have the same name

Fix
Nov 27, 2020

Fixed that it was impossible to search for unstarred lists/products/etc. by name

Fix
Nov 27, 2020

The sales by price pie chart was showing revenue numbers x 100.

Fix
Nov 26, 2020

Change in behavior for prices that only apply to certain contacts: It used to be that if we knew who the contact was from eg. a login, or from them coming from cilcking a link in an email from Simplero, then that would be the only thing we looked at. I've now changed it so that if they enter a different email address on the checkout form, then we'll also attempt to look them up by that email address, and if that Contact qualifies for the price, that's good enough. I don't foresee any problems with this, I think it's how it should have behaved from the start, but do let us know if we're mistaken. -Calvin

Improvement
Nov 25, 2020

If you're using the QuickPay payment processor, you now have a separate setting for whether to accept Maestro (Mastercard's debit card) and Visa Debit. If you accepted credit cards from those companies, we've defaulted you to also accept debit cards, so no change is needed if you were cool with your settings before.

Improvement
Nov 25, 2020

You can now view/filter by the timezone of your contacts right on the contacts table.

Improvement
Nov 25, 2020

Improved the affiliate messaging and affiliate dashboard for when an affiliate is not yet approved. The email notification will now take them straight to the message, and we'll show a badge with unread message count. We'll also track when the message was read.

Optimization
Nov 24, 2020

The search at the top of this page should be faster now, especially if you have lots of contacts.

Improvement
Nov 24, 2020

We've updated the logos we use for credit cards and other payment methods.

Fix
Nov 23, 2020

Some email providers automatically check links in emails they receive. In some cases, this was triggering one-click actions contained in emails. We've added some checks to prevent these bots from triggering one-click actions.

Improvement
Nov 23, 2020

Duplicating a broadcast with many recipients could be very slow. Now it's very fast.

Optimization
Nov 21, 2020

If you have a lot of contacts, your contacts table is now much, much faster.

Improvement
Nov 20, 2020

It’s now easier than ever to manage your on-page SEO

  • We’ve added an SEO view on the Pages and Landing Pages tables so you can view and edit your meta title, description and images in one place.
  • Each image remembers its last used ALT text for convenience the next time you use it.
  • You can access the sitemap.xml of your public sites via the “View sitemap” button on the Pages tab.
Improvement
Nov 20, 2020

Show time zone on member profile, open links in new window

Fix
Nov 19, 2020

Twitter name in member profile could include double @ sign, which would make it wrong and the link not work

Improvement
Nov 19, 2020

When you edit a link in a broadcast email after sending, the list of links will show that it was edited, and you can click to see what it was originally.

Fix
Nov 19, 2020

Editing email links sometimes made copies, didn't change the web view of a sent email, and made it look like they weren't working at all. (Edits did actually work for sent emails, but it sure was confusing.) Fixed now. Thanks to Calvin for sending out an email about this feature and getting a whole lot more people to experiment with it.

Feature
Nov 19, 2020

Messaging with affiliates

An admin can now start a messaging conversation with an affiliate right from within Simplero. Just go to the page for an affiliate, and you'll see a box that says 'Start a conversation with (name)'. This is super useful for communicating about the approval process, as well as any other ongoing conversation around the affiliate relationship.

Improvement
Nov 19, 2020

The Simplero-handled reply to your broadcasts will now show as coming from the person who replied. The reason we didn't was to avoid their name being associated with our 'noreply' email address, but this is how Facebook Messenger handles their notifications, so I guess if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for us. It's definitely a lot less confusing.

Improvement
Nov 18, 2020

Show animated frames for your media files in the library. And you can grab a new animated frame at the same time. Also fixed an issue where the second frame grab would silently fail if there was already a frame grab in progress. Now you can run multiple concurrently. -Calvin
