We have consolidated and improved the "Test" feature for both Campaign Builder and Email Broadcast emails. You can now do the following for both:

  • You can manually add non-app user email addresses to send test emails to
  • You do not have a limit to the number of recipients you can send a test email to

 

  1. Within the new email builder, click the Test button located on the top right side of the header
     
  2. Click in the Start typing to add users or email addresses... field


     
  3. Choose from the drop down of existing app users, or begin typing an email address of a non-app user


     
  4. Click on the completed email address of the non-app user in the drop down
     

Notes: Non-app user email addresses show up in purple. App users show up in teal.

 

 

"Delivered By" and "Powered By" footers have been removed

The "Delivered By" and "Powered By" footers have been removed on Email Builder emails and other hosted assets. The image, text, and link to infusionsoft.com will no longer be present in the footer. If you have access to the legacy email builder, you can turn on Infusionsoft branding if you wish. Go to Admin > Branding Center > Infusionsoft Logo and enable footers:

 

 

DKIM Setup Refinements

Added more accurate examples and copy buttons to make it easier to copy over your CNAME settings into your DNS records. Also made a few minor formatting changes. The bolded names for Steps 2 and 3 of the instructions are the most commonly used field names for the CNAME records associated with the supported domains from the help article.

Creating a New Form

  1. Click on the New Opt-In button on the top right corner of the page from the "Opt-In Forms" sidebar tab


     
  2. Choose what type of opt-in form you would like to use

    • Pop Up Opt-In Form: Prompt your visitor s to opt in without annoying them. You can set Infusionsoft's Opt-In Forms to appear automatically after a specific amount of time, after visitors reach a particular point on your page, or even after visitors leave a comment or make a purchase.
    • Fly In Opt-In Form: The slide-in form is the pop-up’s smooth, subtle cousin. It slides in at the bottom of your visitor’s screen and can be set to appear after a specific time or at a specific point on the page.
    • Widget Opt-In Form: Use widget forms to create attractive opt-in forms for your sidebar, footer, or any other widget-friendly areas on your site.
    • Locked Content Opt-In Form: Offering valuable content in exchange for an email address is one of the most effective ways to grow your email list. Protected content forms allow you to offer content your visitors can “unlock” by opting in.
    • Below Post Opt-In Form: You can use “Below Content” forms to place an opt-in opportunity at the end of your blog posts or pages. Visitors who have read an entire post are highly engaged, so this is an effective way to turn that engagement into a conversion.
    • Inline Opt-In Form: Want to insert an opt-in form in the middle of a blog post, rather than the end? Inline forms make it easy. You can display these forms virtually anywhere you’d like on any post or page on your website.
    • Notification/Opt-In Bar: Increase your opt-ins, announce your promotions and drive traffic to the pages of your choice with our attention grabbing top-of-page banner.
