We’re excited to announce that Courier has been added to three new startup accelerator dealbooks: 500 Startups, Founders Factory and Startupbootcamp. If you don’t see Courier in your accelerator’s dealbook, reach out and connect us with your accelerator’s business team.
Want to schedule a notification for later? Or sequence a few notifications together? Or escalate a notification to another channel or user? Use our powerful automation designer to orchestrate multi-step notification flows.
Build your automations with our five step types: Send, Send-list, Delay, Cancelation, Update-Profile.
Create and trigger an automation to a recipient or list of recipients on a one-off ad hoc basis via API or with a reusable automation template created in the Courier Designer.
Check out our documentation for more details
Respecting recipient preferences is a critical component of any notification strategy. Our improved Preferences API lets you give your users the ability to opt-in and set channel preferences on a per notification, category or subscription (list) basis. You can also let your customers order their channel preferences on a universal level.
For more details visit our Preferences API documentation.
We support API overrides for all sorts of use cases such as file attachments and hard-coded templates, but now there are four more things you can do on every send call:
Email channel-level overrides - The email channel-level override allows you to set the subject, reply to, from, cc, and bcc email addresses, as well as the HTML and text via an override that will apply to all your email channels within a template (*currently only available for Mailgun and AWS SES)
Email brand overrides - Brand overrides let you replace certain brand design elements via API at the time of send (logo, top bar color, brand colors). See our docs for details.
Slack Unfurl Support - If you’re sending links in your Slack notifications, you now have the option to unfurl them for recipients! More details in our docs
Email Tracking - You can now let Courier know if we should enable open tracking on an Email right from the API call on a per notification basis! Check out our docs for details
We made a lot of great updates this week on what you can do with Lists in Courier to make them more powerful and easier to use:
- Default List Preferences - set default preferences for all notifications sent to a List
- Add Multiple Recipients to a List - use a single API call to add multiple recipients to a List
- Add Recipient to Multiple Lists - use a single API call to add a recipient to multiple Lists
- Delete all Recipient Subscriptions - use a single API call to remove a recipient from all Lists
Check out our Lists Documentation for more details!
Want insight into the recipients you’ve created via the Courier API inside the Courier app? Our new Recipients list in the Data logs lets you search and sort your Recipients list, edit Recipient profile data in the UI, search their message history and view their List subscriptions.
The Recipient view is a sortable, filterable list of recipient profiles, while the individual Recipient detail view shows you:
- Profile details - including personal and provider information
- Preferences (coming soon)
- List Subscriptions
- Recent Messages
For more information, see our help doc, Using the Recipients list.
