Wondering what's new in Platformly? Here is a quick summary of some of the new features and updates released in February. We did many other fixes and improvements in the backend and some small ones that we won't mention in this post. Here are the big ones for you to be aware of:
New Integration: Deadline Funnel
Deadline Funnel provides you with evergreen deadlines and countdown timers to add urgency to your marketing funnel and sell more in less time.
This integration allows you to connect your Deadline Funnel account to Platformly so you can build an automation to trigger a deadline or countdown timer for your leads and send them reminder emails at the frequency of your choice. This will add your leads to your Deadline Funnel account and cookie them to the campaign.
Now Publically Launched: Zapier
Zapier helps you connect and automate the apps you use, without having to know how to code. Our Zapier integration allows you to connect Platformly with 1,000+ apps to automate tedious tasks and, simply put, work smarter. We got published in the Zapier directory and are ready to use.
Thanks to this integration, you can now connect Platformly to Gmail, Facebook Ads, Google Sheets, Shopify, SumoMe, WooCommerce, Typeform, Unbounce, Slack… just to name a few. The possibilities are (almost) endless!
New Integrations Directory & Application Process
We have also released our new integrations directory so you can learn more about all our integrations, with screenshots, videos, help articles and more.
There is also a new application process for app owners. If you own an app or use an aff that you wished integrated with Platformly… please send them to this form here. They can then apply and will get access to the integration docs as well as a test API key.
Quickly Re-Send Any Email to a Contact
You now have the option to re-send an email to any contact with the click of a mouse. All you need to do is to go to the contact's page, click on the “Emails” tab, click on the “Action” icon located at the far right of the email in question and click on “Re-Send Email”. It is that simple!
Time/Date Selection & Display
The timezone you select in your profile is now displayed when you schedule a broadcast email, set a delay in an automation and in other relevant places, so the emails are always sent at the right time. You simply can't get it wrong…
Improved Contact Notes
We improved contact notes and switch from a basic text editor to fully customizable free-form editor so you can add hyperlinks, images, PDF documents and more.
Improved CSV Import Module
We greatly improved the CSV import module by allowing more types of CSV structure, for more flexibility, and creating more accurate error messages in case the file is not valid, so you can easily find out what's wrong. This was an important addition, after seeing use cases and different file types, as importing your leads from another provider is a big deal, and we wanted to ensure you find the process smooth.
You can also check out our public roadmap here. Note – if you click on “Launched” you will see what's been put live. Much of the current roadmap is well underway.
