Reduced timeouts on subscriber filters


Our platform and infrastructure team did a lot of indexing work to significantly reduce timeouts on subscriber filter queries. For creators with especially large email lists and number of tags, this means that you should experience improved loading times and near-zero timeouts.

Better experience with content snippets


In addition to introducing new content snippet types, we've also made some improvements to the content snippets' editing experience. Here all the updates you'll see:

  • Content snippet preview in editor: When you add content snippets to your email, they will now show a preview of their content instead of the Liquid tags. This will make editing and writing your email content much easier, as you don't have to memorize what the Liquid tags represent!
  • Edit content snippets directly: You can click on a snippet's preview to edit it directly in your email editor–no more switching back to the content snippet editor to make changes. If you're using the same content snippet more than once in the email, any edits will be applied to all of them.
  • Available in block toolbar: You can now create snippets directly from inside your broadcasts and incentive emails via the block toolbar.
  • Search for your snippet: Have a lot of content snippets? We now have a search feature in the "insert snippet" modal, so you can find the snippet you need much faster.

We hope all these improvements to the content snippets will make your email writing and editing experience seamless. To learn more about these updates, check out the Knowledge Base article.

Introducing blocks & inline content snippets


Our content snippets are getting a facelift and a powerful upgrade. You can now create two different kinds of content snippets:

  • Block Content Snippets: This will create a new block in your email content. The snippet editor also now has access to all our content blocks, which means you can add layout blocks, social icons, and more to create content snippets that you reuse all the time.
  • Inline Content Snippets: This will create content that will go inline with your email content and no longer add in a line break. If you have promotions or signatures you use all the time, this will come in handy!

We hope this update to the content snippet continues to improve the way you write and create your email newsletters. To learn more about this update, check out this Knowledge Base article.
