Update on the Rollout of the New Editor

Recently we told you about the introduction of a new editor to be used in Emails, Letters and Landing Pages.

We’ve had a successful transition so far and are ready to progress in the rollout. We will be updating your account this week to default to having the new editor on.

You will continue to have access to both editors until we transition fully to the new editor.

To switch back to the old editor in one of your accounts, sign in. Change the url to end with /config.aspx.  So in AllClients, we go to https://www.allclients.com/config.aspx. This page will have a box to check and a Save button. To turn off the new editor, click to switch and save your changes. To switch back, go back to this page and unclick the option and save.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

New Editor, International Date Formatting in our Mobile Version and Configure the Number of To-Do’s per page

We’ve introduced a new editor. It is used in Emails, Letters and Landing Pages. We will be rolling it out slowly. You have access to both editors until we transition fully to the new editor.
Some benefits of the new editor:  it can be used with mobile devices, images can be edited, re-sized and cropped, and my personal favorite, you can now copy and paste from other sources without losing your line spacing.

To turn on the editor in one of your accounts, sign in. Change the url to end with /config.aspx.  So in AllClients, we go to https://www.allclients.com/config.aspx. This page will have a box to check and a Save button. To turn on the new editor, click to enable. To switch back, go back to this page and unclick the enable and save.

Here are two videos that feature the new editor:

Assign To-Do’s to Your Team

For our customers using the Team Functions, we have added the ability for Power Users and Independent Users to assign to-do’s to the Team Leaders and Administrators, and vice-versa.

This is a valuable feature when The Team Leader and Administrators are helping the Power User complete tasks that apply to contacts in the Power User’s database.

You will see the additional options when creating the To-Do in the “Assign to” dropdown list, and also on the Re-Assign option from the To-Do List.

Social Connector, Options in Landing Page Extra Fields and a New Birthday Assistant Icon

Social Connector

We’ve added a new Social Connector. You can now view and access your contact’s Social Media accounts right from the Contact Record. It uses your contact’s email address to find their Social Media accounts and adds them to the Contact Record automatically. Watch how easy it is to use:

Daylight Savings Time Adjustments, Expanded Landing Page Options and More…

We’ve added a few new things to the system. Here is an overview.

Daylight Savings Time – Adjust if you don’t observe it

We’ve added an option to not observe Daylight Savings Time. If you have users that do not observe Daylight Savings Time, they may have noticed their time was off by one hour. Users in places like Arizona, Hawaii, Europe, parts of Australia have had difficulty with this for part of the year. They now can select the option to not observe Daylight Savings Time in Account Settings. Click here for more information.

 

Landing Page Options for Existing Contacts

We’ve clarified and updated Landing Pages and the handling of form submissions from contacts that already exist in your system. On the list of Landing Pages the column heading was changed to be New Leads to clarify these are only new contacts. The text on the Actions Tab has been updated and clarified for duplicate email handling. The Source now shows it only updates for new contacts. To-Do Plans will now be added for contacts that already exist in the system.

 

Access All Landing Page Submission Data

We’ve added a way to access all contacts that have submitted a form. You may access this information on the Analytics Tab. You may add the contacts to ClientTouch or view the raw data. This is new and will start collecting data in March 2015. Here is what it looks like:
