No more teasing; it’s here!
We know you were waiting for another update, and we couldn’t keep you waiting any longer. The major release of FluentCRM 2.6.0 brings you many more user-requested features, improved integrations, improvements, and bug fixes!
So without further ado, let’s find out what FluentCRM 2.6.0 has to offer!
More Advanced Filtering conditions
Needless to say, FluentCRM’s advanced filtering makes filtering and segmenting huge contact databases a child’s play. To make it even better, we have added several advanced filtering conditions in FluentCRM 2.6.0.
Email campaign activity conditions
Knowing your email campaign’s performance is too old school. In order to understand audience behavior toward your email campaigns, you need to be able to filter and segment your audience based on specific email campaign activities.
That’s why we are introducing filtering contacts based on campaign data. Let’s say you have several campaigns up and running, and you want to find the contacts who clicked on the link of the emails you have sent on a specific campaign.
Toggle the Advanced Filter in contacts and click on the +Add button. Select contact activities and click on email campaigns.
Now click on the link clicked option.
Select the campaign from the next box.
You can also filter contacts based on the following data from a campaign.
- did not click
- did not open yet
- in (email sent)
- Not in(regardless of status)
Automation activity-based filtering conditions
Just like email campaigns, it’s also important to be able to filter contact activities in specific automation funnels.
To do this, select the previous filter, go to contact activities, and, this time, select automation activity. Now you can filter contacts based on the given situations of contacts in an automation funnel.
Once you have selected the status, select an automation funnel, and FluentCRM will fetch the specific contacts from that funnel based on their status.
Email sequence-based contact filtering
If you’re using email sequences, you can also filter contacts based on their activities in a specific email sequence. Just go to contacts activities and select Email Sequence Activity. You can filter based on the following email sequence activity.
Like earlier examples, don’t forget to select the email sequence from the next box!
New WooCommerce/EDD/LearnDash/LifterLMS conditions
Whether you’re running an e-commerce store using WooCommerce/Easy Digital Downloads or an e-learning website using LearnDash/LifterLMS, you’ll want to filter and separate your customers and students from the other contacts.
That’s why FluentCRM 2.6.0 brings you a simple condition using which you can achieve your segmentation goals. For that, just select the platform you’re using, and select Is a Customer or Is a Student condition. Here’s an example below:
New Automation Features
In this version, we’ve added several new automation features. Most of them are user-requested, and they’ll surely blow your mind!
New Trigger: Birthday Automation
We just celebrated FluentCRM’s birthday, and maybe it’s the best time to introduce the feature you all have been eagerly waiting for.
Yes, the birthday automation trigger is here, and now you can send birthday wishes, offer birthday discounts and make your customers feel more loved!
Setting up the birthday automation trigger is even easier; simply select the Contact’s Birthday trigger from the CRM triggers and start creating your very own personalized birthday automation funnel!
New Action: Remove WordPress User Role
You know how serious we are when we say we want to make FluentCRM a complete marketing automation tool. That’s why we’re constantly adding more automation features to help you manage your WordPress site better.
Previously, you could create a new WordPress user, update user metadata or change a user role inside FluentCRM’s automation funnel. This time, we’ve added the ability to remove your contact’s WordPress user role.
To do so, you can simply add a Remove WordPress User Role action!
New Trigger: Leave from a Course(Learndash)
Been struggling with sending people automated emails to rejoin a course if they leave it halfway? Well, that ends with the introduction of the Leave from a Course trigger for Learndash!
From now on, you can start an automation funnel if someone leaves a course halfway. Wondering how?
From the new automation dashboard, click on Learndash and select Leave from a course.
Here’s a very simple example for better understanding.
Major feature improvements
Now that you know about the major features we have added, let’s go over some of the major improvements!
Faster email editor
Having trouble with the email editor lagging? —No more!
In FluentCRM 2.6.0, we’ve optimized our email editor codes so that you get to experience a much smoother, swift email composing experience. No more frustration, no more lagging!
Improved Email Sequences
Email sequence is highly effective when used right. If you didn’t find it useful before, you’d love it now. FluentCRM 2.6.0 brings two important improvements to the email sequence module.
UTM parameters are a great way to track a campaign through Google analytics. Previously, you could only do that when launching an email campaign using FluentCRM. From this version, you’ll get to set UTM parameters in email sequence!
Minute & hour unit delays
Some of you probably haven’t been able to take full advantage of our email sequences as they lacked the minute and hour units. Well, that’s fixed now!
Contacts won’t enter goals from any automation
Say you have an automation funnel running smoothly, and out of nowhere, you discover a contact has entered the funnel midway just because it satisfied a goal. Surprising, no?
We know some of you are probably frustrated that you can’t control who enters an automation goal and who doesn’t. But it ends now, we tweaked all the goals a bit, and now you can set whether contacts can enter an automation funnel when they meet a goal.
Just uncheck the box in the picture and never worry about a contact entering your automation funnel without you knowing!
Select and modify email template blocks in bulk
Days of customizing your email block by block are over! Now you can easily modify email template blocks in bulk. Just select all the blocks you want to customize, and give them a bespoke design to portray your brand’s image through your emails!
Refactored CRM manager permission
Last but not least, we’ve refactored the CRM Manager Permissions in this version. Now you’ll get a better-categorized view of the manager permissions, and you can also select whether you’ll give your manager permission to delete contacts, contact segments, emails, or automation funnels!
Here’s to the fun part! For the first time, we’re introducing a few experimental features in FluentCRM. Since these are experimental, you can enable or disable them whenever you want. Hopefully, you’ll love these features!
Quick Contact Navigation
Maybe you want to see the next contact, maybe you want to email your contact, or maybe, you want to set up a direct phone call with your contact. Now, you can do all of them from the floating navigation bar!
Show campaign archives on frontend
Want to showcase your email campaigns on the frontend? Simply enable the Campaign Archives on Frontend, select the Number of Campaigns to Archive, and copy-paste the shortcode. You can also select by keyword match!
Bug fixes and minor improvements
Our long list of features comes to an end, but not our list of development. We’re just as focused on making FluentCRM more stable as we’re focused on adding new features. Below are the bugs fixes and minor improvements we’ve made in this release:
