Features and improvements we've recently shipped.
To give you more flexibility with how you format your email content, we just released layout blocks that you can add to your emails.
There are two-column layouts and a call-to-action layout style that you can choose from. For all of them, you can customize the column ratios, padding, and color to best fit your needs. All layouts will collapse into a single column on mobile to optimize the experience for your readers.

We’ve made improvements to the beta purchase graphs available in the Subscriber tab. The purchase graph now displays your sales information more accurately, taking into account any pay-what-you-want sales, discounts, refunds, and sales from integrated commerce platforms.
We are so excited to bring you a new unsubscribe survey to help you collect more information about your audience and your content. By turning on the unsubscribe survey in your Settings > Emails, subscribers will be directed to a confirmation page when they unsubscribe from your emails with an optional survey to share why they no longer want to receive your content anymore. You can find the unsubscribe survey results in Grow > Subscribers > Unsubscribes.
