Νew features for the Email Widget editor & bug fixes

[New] Additional small features for the Referral Email Widget editor.

We added some new handy features to make the Referral Email Widget design process more straightforward. The main idea was to give you what you want when you want it. The new features include:

  • An alert to remind you to update the widget HTML upon changes. 
    Previously, many people, including us, forgot to replace the HTML embed in their referral emails, and the new changes didn’t make it to the live emails. A little reminder comes in handy to keep your campaigns fresh.
  • The ability to copy the Widget HTML directly from the editor.
    So far, you could only copy the email widget snippet from the end of the campaign builder, which was not the most efficient UX. But now, you can copy straight from the editor to save time!
  • The option to customize the referral dashboard URL.
    This allows you to keep your brand image consistent by customizing the URLs of your campaign exactly how you want them.
  • The ability to show or hide specific milestones.
    This will allow you to better tailor your marketing message by selecting which rewards to motivate people with. To take it to the next level, you can even run experiments by trying out different reward pairings over a period to A/B test what drives the most referrals.

[Improved] A reminder if you signed in with Google.

In this world where we make accounts everywhere, it is easy to forget if we signed up using email or Google. So we added a little notice to remind you if you try to log in with email for a Google account.

[Fixed] Faster Widget editor

We significantly improved the loading speed of the Widget editor by optimizing how the editor loads the font selection dropdown. Now, it is a pleasure to work with.

[Fixed] Mailchimp sync button

We fixed a bug that prevented users from disabling or enabling the Mailchimp sync function if it was already connected—now, it is as easy as a flick of a switch.

[Fixed] Form Widget inputs

We fixed a bug that prevented new participants from joining if the campaign owner had set up additional fields/inputs but had not enabled them.

[Fixed] Metamask in browser

We fixed a bug that caused Shopify stores using Viral Loops to be dysfunctional if the visitor had Metamask installed on their browser.
