On Wednesday afternoon, our Product Team released a brand new Manage contact fields page. You should now see the new manage fields experience in your account. Instead of creating and editing your audience fields in a small, multi-page modal, you can now add, edit, reorder and archive your fields on one intuitive page! Read on for more details.

+ New and improved

The new Manage contact fields page includes all of the same functionality as the old modal, including drag-and-drop sorting, archiving, and field creation and editing. We just thought you deserved a much cleaner, faster and more modern experience. 

Click the Manage contact fields button at the top of any audience page to see the new experience, including these features:
  • accessible from audience page in the application
  • new field builder designed for both creating and editing fields
  • includes field preview

We hope these improvements will save you time and energy when managing your audience. Check out our updated help documentation on the new manage fields experience, and let me know here if you have any questions!

+ Bug fixes

Thanks to our developers for fixing these bugs as well!
  • restore deleted fields dropdown is cut off in Chrome and Safari 
  • timeout error reordering fields in manage fields modal 
  • backslash in campaign content causes an oops error on sending
  • completed timestamp for imports and import stats doesn't match account timezone 
  • heads up email won't send unless you allow address to tokenize
  • total emails sent on response overview displays central time 
  • opt out time/date personalization use central time, not account's timezone*

*The problem here was that the code that interprets personalization tags doesn't get information about the sender, so there was not a way to use account timezone for date personalization. Our developers solved this by adding an optional timezone argument to the date tag, which gives the customer more control over the timezone for date personalization, if they want it. 

For example, if I'm sending to customers in Australia, and I want the date tag to populate with the current date in Australia, I'll add timezone="Australia/Sydney" to the date tag, like this: 

and in the inbox, the current date in that timezone will appear, like this: 

This argument can be applied to any of the default date: type tags, and any timezone in account settings is supported.
