March update

This month we added a new journey setting, made improvements to talk, changed the way duplicate records are previewed, and more. We've also enhanced this monthly product update! Each month, we'll spotlight new or improved content from our knowledge base to help you better navigate our docs and get more out of Ortto. 

Check out the rest in the list below, and don’t forget to bookmark our Changelog to see all the updates as they happen.

  • Journeys — We’ve added a setting to allow you to stop contacts from entering a journey after a certain time without turning the journey off. 

  • Talk To increase brand trust and deliverability, all outgoing emails for Talk will collect replies at the same email address. Plus, you can now choose whether Talk conversation summaries are included in email notifications. 

  • Customer data — You can now control how primary records are selected on the duplicate records page to improve control when you are bulk merging records. Plus, when mapping phone number fields from a CSV or tracked forms, you can now choose whether or not the country code is automatically generated.

February update

We shipped several major and highly-requested updates this month, including the ability to use a custom domain for link tracking in SMS to improve deliverability and customer trust. Plus, we’ve updated attribution settings to allow you to choose whether you track campaign attribution against sends, opens, or clicks and have given you greater control over the timing of A/B tests. 

Check out the rest in the list below, and don’t forget to bookmark our Changelog to see all the updates as they happen. 

  • SMSwe’ve enabled custom domains for link tracking with SMS to improve deliverability and increase brand trust. 

  • Attribution — you can now control whether you want to track campaign attribution against sends, opens, or clicks for a better match of which campaigns contributed to the conversion. 

  • Talkthe chat window now shows all recent conversations, instead of just opened conversations, and you can control whether customers replying to an old conversation will re-open that conversation or start a new one. 

  • Salesforce integrationyou can now select multiple statuses to match against in the Salesforce campaign member condition shape. This means you can check if a user has one of multiple matching statuses for a given campaign they are a member of. 

  • A/B testing — we’ve added additional timing controls to A/B tests, including what happens while deciding the winner of a Journey A/B test and how long after meeting the Journey volume limit we decide on a winner.

  • Multi-path conditionsyou can now duplicate or rename a path in a multi-path condition shape for easier editing and maintenance. Plus, multi-path condition filters can now be linked to the journey entry activity or you can specify that the activity must have happened since the contact entered the journey. 

  • Folders — we now support three levels instead of two for folders across the application.

  • Knowledge base — you can now choose whether article feedback creates a new conversation or not, and host files directly in your articles. Plus, we’ve added a new ‘move to category’ button on article index and individual article pages to help streamline organization.

  • Capture - we now allow you to tag all users who submit the capture widget for easier grouping and reporting.

January update

In the spirit of the new year, we spent January focusing on shipping updates that will help with organization and efficiency. We have added the ability to organize your audiences into folders and allowed for greater customization on your preference center content, style, and translations. If you’re using Salesforce as a data source, you now have more granular control over which data to sync, and we’ve made some processing improvements behind the scenes, helping to speed up the sync connection. 

See more in the list below, and don’t forget to bookmark our Changelog to see all the updates as they happen. 

  • Preference centerwe’ve added new fields allowing you to edit the copy on your preference center and related permission pages, and the option to add styling and translations. 

  • Audiences — you can now sort your audiences into folders. We’ve also improved the UX of the index page, allowing better control over which columns you view, their order, and the sorting of your audiences.

  • Tracked formsyour tracked forms submission activity report will now show ‘Submission URL’ so you can see where form completions are happening. Plus, we added a new option to capture Tracked form submissions on pages containing a specified URL snippet.

  • Salesforce integrationwe’ve added options allowing you to sync Ortto activities as activities or tasks in Salesforce. Plus, all Salesforce objects beside Contacts are now optional to sync. These two new options will limit how much data you need to sync, helping to make the integration faster. 

  • HTML emailsyou can now use a tag to identify elements of your HTML upload that should be editable. When you go to use your custom HTML upload, the tagged elements will appear as editable fields. Once you edit, you will see a revised preview of the email to check before you schedule send.  

  • Slack integration — You can now choose to send a Slack notification when Capture form submissions occur. This option will appear as a checkbox under the form fields when you create or edit a capture widget with a form.

December update

Our team spent the last month of 2023 powering through some of the most requested feature updates on our hitlist. We’ve added a brand new journey shape, added more context to talk conversations, and made a platform-wide update to folders to help you get organzied for the year ahead. There’s plenty more — check out the list below, and see all our updates in the Changelog

  • Journeys — A new journey shape, multi-path condition, has been added to allow you to create a condition shape with multiple exit paths. For example, if you are evaluating the ‘country’ field for a contact, you can have different paths for each country value. 

  • Another Journey update allows you to send email notifications to anyone from your authenticated domain, even if they do not have an Ortto user account.

  • Folders — Create subfolders to better organize campaign assets, reports, and capture widgets. 

  • Talk — Your customers can now view all their past conversations so they can look back and self-serve answers, helping you to reduce repeat questions. If a customer starts a talk conversation on a knowledge base article, your agent will now see the article title, a brief summary, and a link. 

  • Capture widgets — All capture widget submission activities will now include UTM parameters from the URL that was viewed, helping you to better understand where leads are coming from. Plus, you can now configure capture widget buttons to use mailto: links for sending emails. 

  • Tracking script — You can now whitelist domains that your tracking code will work on to prevent tracking from fraudulent websites. 

  • Email — A new set of attributes has been added to email campaign reports to show when someone subscribed to your list via a forwarded or ‘viewed online’ email. 



November 28, 2023

November update

This month, we’ve added new options for knowledge base data sources, giving you more flexibility when importing articles and categories. We’ve also made several customer-requested improvements including negative filtering on page URLs for capture widgets, the ability to import and use shortcodes for SMS, and more.

  • Knowledge base — There are now more ways for you to import and manage your knowledge base articles. Zendesk users can directly import articles and categories, all Intercom users can now import categories, and large Intercom accounts (10k+ companies) can import articles and categories. Plus, you can now export the HTML of your Knowledge Base articles directly via API. 

  • Talk — New search capability! Find customers in talk conversations by matching custom field filters. 

  • Capture widgets — We’ve added new ways to filter page URLs on capture widgets, including “does not contain” and “is not”. 

  • Email assets — Download the HTML of any email asset via the API. Plus, you can now use the raw liquid code or fallback data when previewing email assets before you send.

October 26, 2023

October Update

This month, we’ve added two new options for pop-ups to make form completions faster for existing contacts. Plus, we made several key improvements to Talk including a new search feature, revamped user interface, and the ability to report on how many times a saved reply was used.

  • Capture widgets — Pre-fill information like a person’s name or email address from values in the URL parameters, or collect a person’s information while keeping the field hidden from them.  

  • Talk — Talk conversations now have a unique ID for easier filtering and we’ve added a shortcut for accessing talk actions and saved replies via the menu. Plus, you can now soft close tickets so customers aren’t notified when a ticket is closed, report on how many times a Talk saved reply was used, and filter talk conversations by rating. 

  • Salesforce integration — We’ve added a new Journey condition shape, ‘Campaign member status’. This allows you to change how you are communicating with someone or what fields you update based on their progress moving through a campaign.  Plus, you can now control if a person is updated or a new person is created when converting a lead to a contact. 

  • Email previews — You can now share a link to a preview of a draft campaign with an external user for approval.

  • CDP — To avoid duplications, you will now see a warning when attempting to manually add a contact with an email address that already exists in your contacts. 

  • Languages — Portuguese and Ukrainian translations are now supported in the preference center.
