Sequences

Now you can configure the main Run and automation settings of Sequence on the “Settings” page for each Sequence separately:

Contacts Information

Now you can see information about your contacts on the newly designed full-screen card that is easier to read.

Also, you can now send email or verify a contact`s email directly from the enrollment page.

Installing Power Tasks

You can now install Power Tasks even if you don't have funds on your FunnelFly balance. When you do want to use Power Tasks, you will then need to add funds to your account.

Auto-saving Sequences

You can now use the auto-saving sequences for drafts so that you don't have to worry about losing unsaved changes.

Better Interface on Enroll Contacts Page

The interface on the Enroll Contacts page is now clearer. The checkboxes are displayed separately from the contact`s avatar.

Funnelfy's old sequence history and email report were replaced with one, fully functional report page. The new page includes the following functionalities:

  • Ability to sort results by contact, last run, replies, or opens count.
  • Ability to select which table columns to show
  • Powerful filters that sequence by contact status, by sender email account, or by sequence step
  • Ability to perform bulk actions for selected contacts: unenroll, enroll skip step, or retry failed steps
  • Real time updates
  • Ability to see the run history for the selected contact

The images below show what some of these new functionalities look like.

Enrich Contact Data with Clearbit

You can now enrich contact data with Clearbit in Funnelfly. Open Settings -> Integrations and install Enrichment (Clearbit) integration.

Add your Clearbit key to complete the installation process:

You can learn more about Clearbit Integration here.

We also hide our support bubble when you open the contact page so it does not intersect with the sent comment button on the bottom right.

Power Tasks in Growth Tracks

Some of our new Growth Track templates contain Power Tasks. You have the option to install them to unlock some extra features, such as email verification, contact enrichment, or text messages.



Email Verification Power Task

Last week, we introduced the Email Verification power task, which helps you verify if emails are deliverable. You can read more about that here.

This week, we released the ability to bulk-verify emails from the contacts list.

In addition, the email verification status is visible right from the contacts list.


Transferring Account Ownership

You can now transfer Funnelfly account ownership to another teammate from Settings->Team page.

New Power Task Integration - FullContact

This week we released a new Power Task integration that allows you to get a lot of useful contact information in real time using FullContact.

We pull the following data:

  • firstName

  • country
  • countryCode
  • city
  • degree
  • linkedInUrl
  • twitterUrl
  • facebookUrl

Placeholders in Email Templates

We have added placeholders to our Growth Library email templates to make things easier for you. Each placeholder offers an explanations of what needs to be added in a specific part of your email. Here is an example of a placeholder (highlighted in green).

Placeholder.png

We have improved Growth Tracks navigation; in particular, we added an active/inactive filter and made the ‘listing’ page default one.

Group SMS and SMS History Functionality

The most exciting change for this week is new Group SMS and SMS history functionality. Go to Messages -> SMS and create Group SMS message.

Group_SMS.png

Create your message. Then select recipients and click "Send Now."

SendNow.png

If the contact's phone is on, the status of the message should change to "delivered" in just a couple of minutes. Also, the message will be visible on the SMS tab of the contact card. You can also use "Send SMS" to send another message to the contact.

MessageVisible.png

We now have a new Emails Report page where you can see "Opens Count" and "Replies Counts." The Emails Report was previously mixed on the page with Emails History, but we have now created a separate page for it for simplicity.

EmailsReport.png

We also added a default "User opened email" condition, which triggers when a user opens an email sent from a Growth Track.

You can also reply to any email and see the full email thread from the emails tab.

Webforms

On the webforms, we’ve added a new action that allows you to see contacts added through any webform. We keep track of the unique Funnelfly form identifier as the webform field on a contact.

Webforms.png

We have released a new feature that allows you to connect any contact form on your website to Funnelfly without developers. It is as simple as importing leads from CSV.

Here is how webforms work:

  • Copy and paste the URL from your website to Funnelfly.
  • We will parse all form fields for you, so all you have to do is map form fields to Funnelfly fields.
  • Open form and submit sample form.
  • Check out people screen (sort by Added On column) to see contact submitted via webform.

Open Integrations Page and click Install on Webforms.

Integrations.png

Copy and paste the URL from your website and your map form fields to your Funnelfly fields.

WebForms.png

Submit sample form data to make sure that it works correctly. Connected label means that we at Funnelfly received at least one form request.

One-off Emails

A lot of our clients have been asking about the ability to send "one-off" emails. We just released this feature for everyone. The new functionality allows you to send one-time emails to a selected group of your contacts. Email can be sent on behalf of the teammate assigned to that particular person or on behalf of any other teammate.

Simply create your message and select contacts:

Improvements

We have renamed people (leads) as contacts and have also changed the way growth tracks run. Now the system waits until a step is completed with success before scheduling the next one. This becomes more important as our users design complex workflows that send emails and text messages and do other tasks.

We completely redesigned the Growth Track run history to make it simpler and more powerful. The history now shows when a particular step was run for the user and the next scheduled step.

GrowthTrackRunHistory.png

When a step fails for the contact, we pause the growth track for the user and let you decide what to do: Cancel the growth track for the contact or retry the failed step. Also, you will get notified by email on the failures so that you know when things didn’t work as expected.

GrowthTrackFail.png

If many contacts failed on the same step with the same error, you can retry or skip them at once on the Errors tab:

Errors.png

One more exciting change is support of “and” and “or” statements in the growth track step and goal conditions.

SMS Power Task

Last week we released an SMS power task and now are ready to accept more beta customers.

A couple of small changes and bug fixes were released this week.

• First, we now highlight the active menu item:

Screen_Shot_2020-05-06_at_20.51.40.png

• All test emails now include empty unsubscribe links:

Screen_Shot_2020-05-06_at_20.54.52.png

Calendly Integration

CalendlyIntegration.png

The installation is easy. Simply copy and paste your Calendly token (no need to have a paid account) and paste into Funnelfly.

InstallCalendly.png

Once you install Calendly, we will automatically create or update each person (lead) who books a meeting and also create a meeting task to remind you about the meeting.

Improvements

In addition, we have made it simpler to create SMS Power tasks from the Growth Tracks.

PowerTasks.png

Also, when editing emails we now show an alert if you click outside the email by mistake so that you don’t lose your email message content before you save it.

EditingEmails.png

And when you paste content into the email editor, we will automatically clean up the pasted content for you. We keep the links and the bold and italic styles to make sure your emails look good.

April 2020

Introducing SMS Messaging

You can now send text messages and export those contacts to the csv file. This means you can reach out to leads by text message in addition to your emails. Text messages have been shown to have one of the highest engagement rates in marketing channels. You can automatically use text messages to follow up with leads and to convert contacts. Messages are sent from a U.S. cell phone number. Funnelfly also allows you to receive replies to your text messages.

Your first 100 messages are free, and then it is 2 cents per message. SMS functionality is still in beta, so if you want to give it a try, simply send a message to [email protected].

Screen_Shot_2020-04-29_at_3.54.16_PM.png

Reassign Contacts

You now can reassign a person (lead) to a new teammate in a Growth Track. This would affect the email account used to send emails to the person (lead). In addition, any tasks created for that person will also be assigned to that teammate.

UseAsTeam.png

Global Growth Track Settings Improvement

The other change is the addition of new Global Growth Track Settings that allow you to run different actions for the new leads based on the conditions, such as events or pipeline assignments. The actions are very similar to what you can use in the Growth Track.

Attachments in your Growth Tracks

A lot of our customers have asked us to be able to attach files when sending emails. This feature has been released today. Open the growth track for editing, select any email, and click on "Add Attachment" to upload your files. Every user will receive a copy of your file with the email.

AttachmentImage.png

Assigned Tasks on the Dashboard

We also changed the boxes on our dashboard to include the number of tasks assigned to you and the number of active growth tracks in the account.

NumberOfTasks.png

Creating Conditions

We have changed the way goals and step conditions work for Growth Tracks. To try them out, simply click on the button to edit a growth track, open the Conditional Steps tab, and click on the condition.

The new UI allows you to quickly select a condition out of the predefined list:

image001.png

Once you click on the condition, it is immediately selected and applied to the Growth Track step.

You can create new conditions right from this screen:

image002.png

There are 4 types of conditions:

  1. Person — Match people (leads) using the Person fields (common or the custom fields you’ve sent to Funnelfly from integrations).
  2. Events — Trigger steps based on the events you send from Javascript, Zapier, or other integrations.
  3. Pipeline — Run a Growth Track step when a person is assigned to pipeline stage (e.x. Prospect)
  4. Teammate — Run a Growth Track step when a person (lead) is assigned to one of your teammates.

Here is an example of the UI when using the Person fields.

image003.png

Here is an example of the UI when using the Events fields (existing or create new ones).

image004.png

Also, now you can test new conditions to make sure they work properly right from this screen. Just click on the wrench icon from the main conditions screen if the condition is not active.

Screen_Shot_2020-04-09_at_12.09.20.png

Growth Track Library Additions

We have recently added more email templates to the Growth Track available to you in the Growth Track Library. You can browse these templates and apply them to your account as needed.

image5.png

When editing a growth track, you can now select to send emails on behalf of a particular team member instead of using the assigned teammate’s email account. See below.

image6.png


You will now receive a notification when a new task has been assigned to you. You will also see the “past due” task count in the left sidebar menu. See below.

image2.png


On the Growth Track view page, we are now showing statistics for the current week. However, you can change filters and select any time range you would like to view. See below.

image4.png

The conditional steps are a very powerful function of the Growth Tracks. They allow you to send an email in response to a user’s or teammate’s action. (Ex: Send follow up email when the meeting is completed.) We have made the conditional steps more visible on the Growth Track Editor UI. See below.

image3.png



We made it easier to switch between the “Growth Journey Map” and “All Growth Tracks.” See below.
