  • Automations/IO Phone: Rate limiting put in place to prevent accidental actions to large lists.
  • Reviews: We now have a review webpage like the review email template so you can text or send the link to it for any lead you want to get a review from: *reviews_ratings_url* (HTML link) and *reviews_ratings_link* (plain link).
  • Calendar: Revenue added back as a calendar view for monthly view and now yearly view will also show revenue.

  • Date/Time Picker: We’ve made the control easier to use and faster. If using 15 minute increments, you get a faster time picker. Visual AM representation to prevent choosing the wrong time.

Setting your version does not work for us, on chrome or Firefox. It constantly asks the same thing every time we log in., FYI


Sorry! We've fixed that now.


We tried to integrate the new text-review feature and it simply sends us to the quote page, not a review page?


Sorry it’s not clear, but you have to turn on the review page in Pages/Templates.
