See what's new in the Cakemail app

Version 1.4
Released September 4, 2021
IMPROVEMENTS
Display conditions of content blocks
The “display conditions” functionality allows you to change the content that is shown to email recipients based on who they are. For example, you can target specific people based on the city they live in or send different images to cat lovers and dog owners. Here is more information: Personalizing your campaign with dynamic content
Animated GIFs and Emojis
Two new menus give you access to a selection of hundreds of emojis and animated GIFs to bring life to your emails.
Reverse stack order
The “reverse stack order” feature allows you to decide in which order the content will appear on mobile devices. It makes it easier for you to choose the content you want to focus on for every different device.
Easy mobile/desktop preview switch
You can create and arrange specific content for desktop or mobile devices to improve your subscribers’ experience. To help you do that, you can now check how all your content will be displayed - or not - on each screen type, directly in the same window of the editor. When you select the screen type (desktop or mobile) at the top of the editor, the content will be displayed according to the selected screen type: Clear for the active content and blurred for the inactive.
We have simplified the management of contact attributes so you can use them with more pleasure. Being able to segment a list is a powerful option to have!
You now have the ability to configure the default sender for a better cohesion and recognition in your subscription and unsubscription emails.
You can set up customized confirmation pages to send out when a contact subscribes or unsubscribes from a list, making sure your brand is visible throughout the entire relationship.
You have the possibility to simultaneously execute an action on a selection of contacts (on a complete list or a list filtered by a segment). Example: You can now simultaneously unsubscribe multiple contacts by selecting contacts and selecting “unsubscribe” from the dropdown menu.
We have added new filters to make your list management easier.
BUG FIXES
We have improved the password strength verification process to ensure stronger security.
With the visual improvements we’ve made for more consistency, we hope you feel that navigation is easier and clearer throughout the app.
If you haven’t tried this yet, it’s time to create automation workflows. If you have, we trust that you’ll appreciate the process improvements we’ve made.
AFFILIATE PROGRAM
We have launched an affiliate program to give partners the opportunity to earn additional revenue by referring new customers to Cakemail.
Version 1.3
Released July 15, 2021
IMPROVEMENTS
We’ve improved the contact list import to make it faster and smoother. In addition, whenever a contact cannot be imported, despite our best efforts, we will indicate it to you, in red, so that you can do something about it.
Contacts can now be filtered by their status. This allows, for example, to display only active, inactive or unsubscribed contacts.
You can now delete contact lists you are no longer using. This allows you to keep your account clean and save money. No need to worry about reports from campaigns sent to these lists as they remain available even after the list is deleted.
Your custom list attributes are now available in the Email designer, allowing you to more easily personalize your campaigns, like “Hello [firstname]”.
We've made it easier to share links to pages in the app, like a campaign report, even if the people you're sharing it with aren't logged into their Cakemail account. When the person clicks on the link, she will be redirected to the login page. Once logged, she will be brought to the linked page.
What happens when your subscribers click Subscribe or Unsubscribe? You can now define all the pages your subscribers interact with during the subscribe and unsubscribe flow.
Email screenshots are now displayed for all campaigns that are in draft, outbox or sent. They provide a visual clue to help you find what you're looking for.
We’ve improved how things work behind the scenes when someone creates a Cakemail account in order to increase security and ensure a better experience.
BUG FIXES
Statistics on opens have been corrected in campaign reports. Something was not right but now it’s fixed.
We’ve fixed an issue with the delay we set in Automation between each action.
FOR RESELLERS
System emails have been redesigned. Reseller partners can also now modify them or use their own templates.
Version 1.2
Released June 1st, 2021
Automation
Email automation is now available in the Cakemail Next-gen app. It allows for the creation of an email series or drip campaigns. You can now trigger emails to new subscribers based on predefined rules and delays. In a future release, these emails could be made conditional to specific events such as email opens, clicks or sends.
White-label
Resellers can now offer the Cakemail Next-gen app under their own brand. Branding includes logo, colours and URLs through the app. Existing resellers should contact our Customer Support Team to have this feature deployed to their account.
