Release 5.0 - September 2015

Pinpointe v5 has been nearly a year in the making and consists entirely of features and enhancements that you - our customers, have asked us to implement. In addition to new features - we've included an across-the-board fanatical focus on making Pinpointe powerful yet easy to use.

Over the next 1-2 weeks we’ll be rolling our newest upgrade to all customers. 

Highlights of the new release:

New Awesome Email Builder - Designing Campaigns is Now Fun

Building awesome looking email campaigns can be time consuming and tedious and almost impossible without the right tools or an intimate knowledge of HTML. Drag and drop editors make email campaign development easier but are still tedious and limited.

Unlimited layout. No coding, it just works

Pinpointe’s campaign builder let’s you build beautifully designed, mobile friendly and responsive emails lightning fast - you can go from start to send in under 10 minutes! No need to know HTML and you don't have to be a graphic designer to create sharp looking campaigns for your users.

Create your own email template in minutes with modules. With Builder - select from one of our pre-made design styles, build the layout in under a minute, add your content, fine tune the colors. A final inbox preview and spam check and you’re ready to send a fantastic looking campaign.

Improved WYSIWYG Campaign Editor

For our customers who still prefer to design their emails from scratch or develop campaigns using tools like Dreamweaver and import their own code, you’ll love our new WYSIWYG editor. New enhancements include:

  • Compatibility with all modern browsers (javascript enabled)

  • Upload multiple images at once

  • New! Image Editor -- Fine tune and resize your images after uploading to Pinpointe

  • New! Button Maker - no more tedious struggling with creating buttons. Insert stylish buttons with single click simplicity.

  • For customers who want ultimate control of your design, you can even create a campaign in the builder, grab the HTML code and paste / edit with the WYSIWYG builder.

New! Tagged Lists & Databases

We now give you even more ways to target your subscriber audience with maximum flexibility.

‘Lists’ are now called ‘Databases’ because, well, that’s what they really are!

‘Tagged Lists’ are incredibly powerful, fast and easy to use. You can add an on-the-fly ‘tag-list name’ to contacts when uploading them, for easy management. Best of all - any contact can be in any number of tagged lists. 

Maybe you just received a batch of leads from webinar - Just create a Tagged List when uploading so you can refer to them easily.

The new tagged list feature even lets you select all contacts that are in 1 list and exclude contacts that are in another tagged list.

We know you’ll love Tagged Lists.

We’re overhauling surveys entirely. Here are a few of the updates - with even more features coming along in the upcoming weeks:
