Drag & Drop Reusable Snippets

Today, we're excited to announce the release of the first phase of our 'Snippets' feature!

In a Drag & Drop template or campaign, you can now create a saved snippet from any section block and its content by simply hitting the 'new snippet' button while the section is selected.

From here you will give your snippet a name and it will be saved to the project and can be dragged into any drag and drop template or campaign created within the same project. Once saved, snippets can be found in our new sidebar.

For now, snippets are purely a saved section of content that can be reused in any template. Once dragged into the template, the contents of can be edited by anyone.

Coming soon: Phase 2 of Snippets will include the ability to lock the contents of a snippet and sync any changes made to it to any instance of it across all your templates and campaigns.

Recent improvements

Check out two improvements we've just released:

  • Better support for Google fonts - We have improved how the Drag & Drop editor includes the selected Google font in a template or campaign by including the official italic and bold font variants. This ensures your fonts look their best in all email clients.

  • Importing customer and event data via CSV - During the last few weeks we have released a few changes to our imports section. Some of the most apparent changes are to the UI, such as giving you the option to skip specific columns, adding a new confirmation page and displaying the number of successfully imported and invalid rows. Every csv file updated now has its own page, meaning you can leave and return to it later to continue mapping the columns or to see the state of the running import, without losing your progress. There have also been a number of changes behind the scenes to improve the processing of CSV data and add validations that help prevent importing bad data.

Recent bug fixes

Here's a couple of bugs we've squashed recently:

  • Account Invoices - We've fixed a bug that prevented administrators from accessing account invoices when a sub-project was selected.
  • Newsletter AB/Test content display bug - We've fixed an issue that prevented content from being displayed in the UI for Newsletters with Pick-A-Winner A/B tests after they had been scheduled.

Recent improvements

Here's a couple of improvements we've made to Vero in the past week:

  • Allow users to switch to Google Sign-In - For users who initially signed up to Vero with an email and password, we now allow them to sign in with Google using the same email address. Note: Once Google Sign-In has been enabled we will prevent email/password sign-in to ensure your account's security.

  • Reducing size of Drag & Drop emails - To lower the chance of large emails from being clipped in email clients such as Gmail, we've implemented minification of the outputted HTML for Drag & Drop emails, this will reduce the size of the outputted email source.

Recent bug fixes

Here's a few bugs we've fixed recently:

  • Unsubscribed customers not displayed in Segments search results - We've fixed an issue where unsubscribed customer profiles were sometimes being excluded from Segment search results.

  • Export HTML from Drag & Drop content editor - We've fixed a regression that prevented you from exporting the HTML from the Drag & Drop content editor when using our recently released Show/Hide content on Desktop or Mobile feature.

  • Changing a Workflow Entry Trigger - We've fixed a bug when updating the Trigger (event) on a live workflow. The issue would cause existing customers who were in the workflow waiting at a delay step to be exited from that workflow.

  • Toggling inline styles - Fixed a bug when toggling the inline styles option in the HTML editor which reverted back to its previous state after saving.

Recent bug fixes

Here's a few bugs we've squashed recently:

  • Logs for merged profiles displaying incorrectly - We've fixed an issue related to merged customer profiles, that would initially show the original customer identifier on a log entry until clicked.

  • Expired trials unable to log in - A bug has been fixed that prevented trial customers who were over the 30 day trial period from logging in and upgrading their Vero account.

  • D&D content broken by URL with trailing '=' character - We've fixed a bug that prevented Drag and Drop templates from rendering correctly when it contained a link where the last character of the URL was set to =.

  • Workflow reports - We've fixed errors with displaying reports and exporting statistics for workflows which might have occurred after an update is made to email nodes in a live workflow.

  • Click report not assigning clicks to correct URL - We've fixed a bug that would sometimes assign click stats to the wrong URL if they contained the same prefix.

  • Delete email identifier from customer profiles via API request - It is now possible to remove the email identifier from a customer profile via the API by setting the value to an empty string '' .

Border controls on sections and buttons

To give you even more control over the look and feel of your emails, we've added some new border controls to the drag and drop editor. It's now possible to select a border width, border color and border style (such as dashed or dotted) on either a button or a section block, and you also can also choose on which sides the border should appear.

Border radius for specific corners

Similar to how our padding control works, in the drag and drop editor you can now change the radius on each individual corner of a section, image, button and social block. This was a common request and makes it easier to make rounded sections comprised of multiple sections blocks, which is quite a popular design choice in email templates.

Recent bug fixes

Here's a couple of bugs fixed recently:

  • Drop down showing duplicate tags - Fixed an issue that caused tags to be displayed twice in the 'Has tags' dropdown list when editing audience or segment conditions.
  • Undo/Redo function doesn't capture all changes - We've fixed a bug that meant some of the changes made to a drag and drop template were not captured in the Undo or Redo stack. This meant that some of your individual changes would have been skipped while using the undo or redo buttons.

Mobile/Desktop template display options

CleanShot 2020-12-15 at 15.29.47.gif

When working with responsive emails, you may want to some content to be shown on mobile and some slightly different content to be shown on desktop. To allow for this common use case, we've added a Show on Mobile/Desktop/Both option to the drag and drop content editor.

By default every section and content block is visible on both sizes of device and scales appropriately, but if you want more specific control, this control allows you to easily define if any section or content block should only be visible on one of the two device sizes.
