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.

Combined desktop and mobile view

We've added a new view option to the drag and drop editor which is especially useful when working with content blocks that appear on a single device size. This new view allows you to view and edit your template for each device size at the same time without having to switch between them. This makes it much easier to see which sections are visible on desktop or mobile. These views are also available on the 'preview in browser' page.

Recent bug fixes

Here's short list of recent bug fixes:

  • Editing Preheader text - We have resolved a caching issue that would occur when editing preheader text on a campaign, which would prevented those changes from being displayed correctly when previewing via email or browser.

  • Repeated errors in a CSV - Importing CSVs that contained too many errors (e.g. An invalid date value repeated on every line) could cause a server error, we now limit the number of errors displayed on screen.

  • Image and Button Alignment in Safari - We've fixed a bug with the drag and drop template editor on the Safari browser that would not always show changes made to the alignment of an image or button block.

Importing events via CSV with ID

We've made some improvements to our CSV importer which includes support for importing event CSV's with ID and also includes importing event properties. This means you can import events in the same way as real time tracked events.

Recent improvements

A couple of areas of Vero have seen some enhancements in the last few weeks. Here's a quick rundown of each improvement:

  • Update provider credentials - We now allow admin users to edit authentication details (username/password) for any non-vero delivery providers, making it easier to update your provider and applying them to all campaigns already setup to send via that provider.

  • SendGrid API key authentication support - Legacy username/password authentication has been deprecated by SendGrid. Existing Vero customers who use SendGrid should update their email providers with an API key which will replace existing username/password details

  • Case sensitive CSV property names - We now preserve the case of customer and event property names when importing via CSV - previously they would be automatically down-cased.

  • Reports for all Workflow communications - A new reports view has been added that shows aggregated stats for all communications in a workflow, making it easier to see engagement for each workflow as a whole. This is now the default when selecting a Workflow on the reports page.

Recent bug fixes

Here's a couple of small bugs we've fixed in the last few weeks:

  • Page Loading - We've fixed an error that would in some cases prevent pages in the Vero app from loading correctly and where the blue loading bar at the top of the page would appear stuck.

  • Inconsistent clicks statistics - We fixed an issue where Reports and Logs views might load statistics data for slightly different time ranges which would lead to inconsistent figures displayed on each page.
