June, 2012

On Tuesday, June 12th at 8pm Central Time, GovDelivery GovDelivery added many new and improved features to the Digital Communication Management (DCM) platform.

Target Your Audience - Without Sacrificing Great Design

Our Advanced Bulletin Editor allows you to create engaging newsletters quickly with minimal effort. Now, you can target an Advanced Bulletin to segmented groups of subscribers. For example, you can send your newsletter only to subscribers who have signed up within the last 30 days, or those who haven’t opened or clicked a previous newsletter.

New Reports and More Data

The June release brings new reporting capabilities, allowing you more access and control over your GovDelivery data.

  • If you participate in the GovDelivery Network, you can view the impact of your Network partnerships in the Network Report. With this report, see how many new subscribers you receive each month from your Network partners.
  • The Subscriber Activity Report (formerly the Subscriber Count Report) now includes Subscription Rate on the Summary page to show you the average number of topic subscriptions per subscriber.
  • The Topic/Category Report features more data, including new and deleted subscriptions for your specified date range, broken down by Topic and Category. You can also now  sort and filter your results based on Topic or Category details.
  • The Questions Report that shows the answers to questions from the subscription process can now be filtered or sorted by channel (email or wireless).
  • For your convenience, the default date range for all reports is now 30 days. You can still customize the date range when you run a report.

Tweet, Tweet: Twitter Has a New Logo

It’s time to update your footers and other areas of your bulletin templates where the Twitter logo is displayed to comply with Twitter’s new content display policy. GovDelivery can help you make this change, or you can make your own update.

Support for Firefox 12

GovDelivery is excited to announce full support for Mozilla Firefox 12. GovDelivery also has full support for Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0, 8.0, and 9.0.

  • For accounts that require a double-opt in for new subscribers, you can now add a confirmed subscriber from the Subscribers menu.
  • When using Advanced Filtering, GovDelivery has optimized the accuracy of the subscriber count indicated in the To section.
  • For topics that are using Page Watch on an RSS feed, the newest RSS stories (based on pubDate in the feed) will now appear at the top of the bulletin in descending order.
