We’re super excited to tell you about our latest release that we’re launching soon since there a so many powerful changes to the platform! One change you’ll notice right away is simplified terminology – Watched Terms are now called “Saved Searches” and Automations are called “Rules”. There’s also a ton of new functionality which you can read about below or WATCH THE RECORDED TOUR.
TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION, THEN MAKE IT A RULE
In this release, we’ve added the ability for actions to be taken immediately, then made into a rule to apply to future posts… (previously, “automations” only applied to future posts.)
On the search results and contacts page, you can now create a filtered set of results and then target those contacts immediately with an email or a direct message on Twitter. You can also follow them, or add and remove them from groups. Then, you can save that action as a “Rule” so all future posts fitting that criteria get the same response.
SEND YOURSELF TEST EMAILS
As part of an action or rule that sends an email, you can now send a test of that email response to the email address of your choice.
DELETE CONTACTS YOURSELF
You can now delete contacts either by searching and filtering, or one at a time on the contact detail page.
REMOVAL OF 1,000 CONTACT LIMIT
We’ve removed the limits on the number of contacts that can be exported.
AUTOMATICALLY IMPORT TWITTER FOLLOWERS
Building on our support for importing contacts directly from Twitter, you can now opt to automatically import your Twitter followers as well as those you follow when you connect your Twitter account to Attentive.ly.
FILTER RESULTS BY IMPORT SOURCE
You can now filter results by how contacts were inported into Attentive.ly; either by CSV, CRM, or Twitter.
MORE HELP ICONS
You may have noticed the new help icons from the group filters last release. We have added even more help text to this release, and hope to continue adding in-context help text throughout the dashboard in the future.
WATCHED TERMS ARE NOW CALLED “SAVED SEARCHES
One of the biggest changes in this release is the renaming of watched terms to be saved searches.
MULTIPLE PLACES TO VIEW SAVED SEARCHES
We’ve also added the ability for you to decide where you want each saved search to show up.
- You can choose to see or hide a saved search in the main chart (on the dashboard and on the manage pages) or in the widget showing recent posts on the dashboard;
- You can choose to include or exclude a saved search from recommendations;
- And you can now manage your daily digest emails for each search as part of search management, rather than as an automation.
AUTOMATIONS ARE NOW CALLED “RULES”
Speaking of automations, another big change in this release is the renaming of automations to be rules. We’ve also promoted this functionality to be a main navigation point.
With this release, we tried to make managing rules more efficient and more enjoyable.
ORGANIZE YOUR RULES
We’ve also made some changes that should help keep your rules better organized.
- Rather than being grouped by search term, rules are now organized individually by the combination of the search and active filters.
- Each rule also now has a unique (and editable) name.
- Rules now have three possible states: active, paused, and archived.
