Pricing Plans Updates
We've added information about the subscription expiration date for all channels to the main page and the Add Funds page. Now you can see there when your subscription will be automatically renewed or disabled.
Now you can delete senders only if they aren't connected with a paid subscription for the current or next month.
You can select the sending method (for example, via processing) when creating a sender.
We've added information on the selected pricing plan and subscription for the next month.
You can pay for a Viber subscription for the next month in your personal account. If there is not enough money, click on the button to add funds. After replenishment, the subscription will automatically renew.
New Browsers tab for web push notifications.
New Device languages tab for email and web push.
Updated display of AMP reports. The data set hasn’t changed, but now it is designed as a line chart.
In the report details, now you can copy the error description.
Update of the Start on date block
After updating, the time set in the block corresponds to the user's time zone. Previously, the time was set in UTC. If the workflow is launched via the API, the block will use time from the event.
Selected period saving
Now the system remembers the last selected period in the Contact activity tab.
Instant update in cohort analysis
At the present, cohort analysis data is updated instantly, rather than once a day.
We've added the from field for the /v1/message/viber method. This parameter is required if your organization has multiple senders.
Sending web push notifications to segments
Now you can send web pushes from the Contacts → Segments tab. The functionality is available for the Advanced pricing plan.
Speed limiting for sending web and mobile notifications
By default, the system sends a message to the selected contacts instantly (As soon as possible). But you may need limited sending for some reasons. Then you can set the sending limit per minute, hour, day, or month for web and mobile notifications as for other media channels.
Export data to BigQuery
You can export the mediaType for contactActivities.
Now you can export this parameter in two ways:
Overwrite the existing table with all the data in it (via API). If an existing table contains data for more than 3 months, it won't be saved as it can be downloaded only for that period.
Create a new Dataset ID in BigQuery and set up export with the required fields. It will preserve the original data table from deleting.
Saving deleted events
If an event was accidentally deleted in the Triggers → Event types tab, it will be restored in the Event types and Event history upon new sendings.
New conditions for dynamic segments
If you have Extra Features enabled in your account, now segmentation by domains, AMP, subscription categories, workflows, messages, system tags are available for building segments.
