Here at Omnisend, our Teams develop the product regularly, and new features and improvements are released every week.
In this article, you will find essential information related to the recent releases that will help you optimize your digital marketing with Omnisend even more!
SMS opt-in update
Shopify has released a new feature - SMS collection at checkout. Previously, it wasn't possible to collect SMS opt-in in Shopify checkout by default, so Shopify merchants were looking for workarounds to collect SMS subscribers during checkout. You can now pass the phone numbers to Omnisend Audience with the correct subscription status.
You can now track bounces for SMS subscribers alongside email bounces. Also, all bounced phone numbers will be unsubscribed. Check more about it here.
Safe Send Limits
New Free accounts don't have any safe send restrictions from now on. Please note that the new free plan sending limit is 500 emails a month, which is the max number of emails you can send with your first campaign.
With the release of iOS 15, Apple has changed the way open rate data is received on your emails by prefetching tracking pixel in the Apple Mail App. It's vital to understand how opens rate tracking will be changed with this release of the Apple Mail App. You can read more about all the features impacted by iOS 15 here. To adapt our sales tracking logic, we've released a feature that allows switching between attribution by opens and clicks. You can read more about attribution logic here.
You can now redo/undo the changes you made in the new editor using the buttons in the top right corner. There are unlimited undo steps, so you can get to the beginning of designing with the possibility to start from scratch.
Note! Reloading the page restarts the feature, so undo history will be lost.
