Features and improvements we've recently shipped.
With this you can trigger automation rules based on a purchase from Shopify for Any Product, rather than just a specific product.
This is useful to add a general “customer” tag or send a generalized sequence to all subscribers that make a purchase.
Now you can loop subscribers in a Visual Automation multiple times. This allows you to send subscribers down different conditions or add them back to a sequence where they left off when using the Move subscriber actions. Even when looping, subscribers will never receive the same email twice.
Now you can use a custom field change as an event or entry point in a visual automation. You can fire the event when a custom field is changed to anything or a specific value.
After you've sent a bunch of broadcasts it can be hard to find an old one. We've solved that issue by adding a search by subject line to the broadcasts page!
We've added a ton of new actions to Visual Automations including: Remove a tag, set a custom field with liquid support, start another Automation, remove from another Automation, and exit the current Automation in event or condition branches.
View your subscriber details when sending emails in Gmail with our new Chrome extension. You can see if they're a subscriber and what tags they have to provide context to your one-on-one conversations.
Tag your subscribers when they visit a page or post on your WordPress site with the latest update to our plugin.
Now you can show unique content to subscribers visiting your WordPress site based on the tags they have in ConvertKit.
We're continuing to make improvements to our infrastructure to provide a better experience. Over the past month we've been able to improve Broadcast and Sequence sending times.
Sequences will now see a 10x improvement in sending speed. Broadcast delivery is much faster which has greatly improved the sending time during our daily 11am rush.
We've updated the app so that any action taken within the UI on a subscriber will trigger automations, both Rules and Visual Automations. This means you can now use Bulk (and single) actions, such as adding a tag, to fire off an automation.
