The latest updates from the product team

Batch 1 / 2022

January 14

New year, improved processes. This year we will announce all the changes every two weeks but with more articles written to help you succeed and some videos recorded to show how we intend Introist to be used!

Update

Modifying journey attributes

Don’t know all the details of your employee but would still like to enroll them? No problem, any attributes can now be modified at any time during the journey. We will take care of updating calendar events and upcoming messages. Sweet!

Canceling single Journey step

Something happened during the Journey and one of the steps in it won’t be needed anymore. No problem, that happens. You can now cancel steps from the Journey while the rest of it continues to march on as planned. So far this feature is available for calendar events and Slack messages but rest of the step types will follow!

Slack step UI in Journey view

Good usability comes from clean and simple UI.
With all the new knowledge we have gained since the beta release, we felt that there was significant room for improvement in how the Slack step details are presented when you check them out in a single journey.

Enjoy the new and improved UI!

Unlimited cc addresses

We believe that taking some time-off is valuable. By default Introist is not scheduling any calendar events or messages during weekends to give you and your people their valuable time to relax and spend time with what they love.

Nevertheless if you want to allow Introist to schedule during weekends as well, just ask your point of contact to enable weekend scheduling for those workflows you want.

Fixes and improvements

Sometimes you don’t need cc recipients to your emails, sometimes you do. Now you can add as many of them as you like.

  • Attendees not related to the journey at hand (external attendees) are always listed last in Guests block
  • Employee avatar in Journey view was not aligned the right way, now it is
  • When you select Slack message to be sent by bot, Introist bot is selected by default

Update

Integration news

Slack integration is now available for all of you. Delight your employees with personalized Slack messages!

If you are using Teamtailor and you have integration in place you can now use custom fields such as buddy email when you are importing people into Introist. Your point of contact will help you to get started.

Reply to

Sometimes it is great that responses to emails are directed to somewhere else than the original sender. Read more about using reply to address here.

UI Refinements

Keeping on track what happens for all the people in all these workflows is essential. We have started working on more insightful and declarative design to help you understand each individual journey.

Last week we released an updated view on a scheduled calendar event to get better grasp on what is going on (e.g. showing rooms separately).

Weekends are great, let’s embrace them

Update

Verified by Google - Security Assessment 2021

We are happy to announce that we are verified by Google as we passed this year’s Security Assessment! As you might know Google requires annual Security Assessment when using their restricted scopes such as sending emails on behalf of a user.

Even though we passed the Security Assessment without any required remediation we decided to implement a bunch of security improvements based on recommendations given by Google-empanelled third-party assessor.

  • Extra layer of security to our cloud storages
  • Improved data input validation to catch any unintentional and undesirable data
  • Now you can (again) send a test email or calendar invite when creating new step

Fixes and improvements

  • Improved some wording
  • Minute perfection when sorting those steps in your workflow
  • Now you can (again) send a test email or calendar invite when creating new step

Week 48 / 2021

Update

Common event detection

Building events where all employees are invited to the same event rather than having an event for themselves is an important possibility. With this release, Introist not only looks for calendar to find suitable events but also looks another Journeys in Introist.

This should make sure that no matter what happens to those events in calendar, employees enrolled later will be invited to the same event!

Fixes and improvements

  • Security improvements based on the report from our security audit
  • Changing Journey email that should be postponed now also leaves the updated email to be postponed
  • Improved detection of failures when executing steps

Week 47 / 2021

Fixes and improvements

  • Improve rendering Journey preview with lot of steps
  • Automatically mark step skipped if missing some key data (e.g. Slack sender)
  • Handbook layout alignments unified
  • Store the step ID for each Journey step
  • Make loading events to Introduction Schedule more robust

Week 46 / 2021

Update

New look & Feel

Bye bye blue sidebar! We updated the look and feel of the UI to have some extra space for the important bits and to help you focus even better to what matters the most: information about your employees.

Copying steps from workflow to another

The title pretty much says it. You can now copy a single step from workflow to another by clicking the three dots on the step you want to copy.

Fixes and improvements

  • If you have calendar event participants with very long emails (resources), the view started to scroll. Not anymore!
  • If you change journeys email which is being delayed (account not yet created), we just ignored that. Now, if you change such email, it is still being delayed, as it should be!
