Hello everyone, We just released another maintenance update of FluentCRM. This update comes with improvements to the newly released recurring campaign, more smart code for your dynamic data, and some under-the-hood improvements.

So let’s get to it without wasting any time!

Fixed: Recurring Campaign timezone issues

As you already know, we released a recurring campaign feature in our last update where you can easily send emails based on your recent post-publishing activity. It enabled you to send emails every week automatically or manually.

However, a drawback of setting up manual updates is that you wouldn’t know when the draft is ready for delivery. In this version, the system will email you when a new email is drafted in the background.

We also noticed some users faced issues with different timezone and we have fixed the issue in this version too.

Elastic Email bounce handler added

Bounce handling is crucial for your email delivery reputation and we understand that. This is why we have added bounce handling for tons of email service providers. Similarly, this version brings you a bounce-handling facility for Elastic Email. Now, you can set up Elastic email bounce handler in FluentCRM.

With this integration when an email address got bounced or a contact unsubscribed from ElasticEmail, FluentCRM will automatically change the status in your WordPress site’s contact status.

New Smartcode for latest post title and Custom Date Format

In this new version, we have added two new smartcode.

  • {{other.latest_post.title}} : This smartcode will return the latest blog post title. It will be very useful for you to set the email subject from the latest published blog post.
  • {{other.date_format.PHP_DATE_FORMAT}} : – If you want to show the current date dynamically with your own custom format then you can use this.

You can use any PHP-supported date format and replace the PHP_DATE_FORMAT part in the SmartCode.

Here are a few examples that you can take a look at:

dDay of the month, 2 digits with leading zeros01 to 31

    Hi, please add the possibility of only showing posts from a specific tag/category (ideally also custom posts).
    We would like to start using this feature but we have posts from different subjects and are not able to segment those posts into different recurring campaigns.
