New Feature Friday for July 17

Starting today, on Fridays, we’ll share new features that the Iterable engineering team has implemented (and are live) in the past week. We may not have a post each and every Friday (since many features take longer than 1 week to implement), but we’ll probably have one most Fridays.

Here is the list of items from this past week (July 13-17, 2015). If you have any questions or comments, please let us know in the comments below!

1. Create multiple lists from a static list – Automatically populate 2+ new lists from an existing static list. This is a great way to run certain types of A/B tests (e.g., over multiple campaigns) without any extra work.

Lists

2. Visual cue for when a campaign is disabled – See at a glance which campaigns are active vs. inactive in a workflow (see red nodes in the screenshot below). This is especially useful for customers that have large workflows that trigger multiple campaigns.

Workflow cues

3. Trigger a workflow with a list – Run every user in a list through a workflow. An example use case could be to unsubscribe the users in a list that have been inactive for a certain number of days.

Have a great weekend!
