Dear Strivers,

July is here, and it’s time to catch up on what we rolled out in our June 2024 update. Keep reading to find out about the updates that we have rolled out!


1. New Time-based Condition Option in Flowbuilder! ⏰

Now, in the Flowbuilder, there’s a new option called “Time of Day between” in the Condition node.

This allows you to set up messages to be sent out based on specific times of the day.

For instance, you can create a message to inform contacts about office hours if it’s outside the working hours, and if it’s during working hour, different message can be sent out or action that can be taken. 🕒

Send WA Personal Mesasge:

Choose the linked WA Personal device, enter the recipient’s phone number (either within or outside your organization), and type out the message you want to send. It’s that simple! 📲

8. Avatar Display for Inbox Tickets in Pending Queue! 🎫

Now, when you check the pending queue of your Inbox, you’ll see the avatar of the user who last resolved the ticket or is currently assigned to it.

If a ticket has been previously handled, you’ll see the avatar of the user who resolved it last.

For new tickets with round robin enabled, you’ll see the avatar of the user currently assigned to it.

This makes it easier to track ticket ownership at a glance. 👀

15. Improved Inbox Contact Linking! 🚀

We’ve made improvements to speed up the loading of contact when searching for your contact to link to the ticket in the inbox. Now, when you click Link Contact or search for your contacts to link, the results will load much faster.

We’ve improved the process by limiting the number of contacts shown, displaying only the top 50 results by default. 👤

16. Expanded Email Broadcast Display 📧

We’ve expanded the display to show 20 email broadcasts at a time, so you can easily access more of your past broadcasts. 🎉

Now, when you reach the bottom of the list, an additional 20 broadcasts will automatically load, allowing you to keep scrolling and viewing until all your broadcasts are shown out.
