Wisdomwhere Updates - Oct 10, 2018

Wisdomwhere Updates

It’s been awhile since we’ve sent a message out with what has been updated in Wisdomwhere, although we have continued to release incremental updates.

New Feature

Broadcast Email Queue & Reporting

An email queue helps us send large broadcast emails more efficiently and improves the amount of time it takes to complete the action on the page.
We’ve added a broadcast email report that shows the text of the email and statistics about the successfully sent messages. You can also view who the message was sent to.
This is a feature that is not turned on by default. Let us know if you would like to use the new broadcast email queue.
