Today we are releasing the first in a series of product changes to get us to the point where you can send all your email through Postmark. This release introduces the concept of Message Streams to the Postmark UI.
A Message Stream is a way to organize and separate your sending within a server. We know that some people use servers as environments, while others use it to separate clients, apps, etc. Message Streams give you an additional way to separate your sending and reduce the proliferation of servers on your dashboard.
Check out our blog post for all the details.
We know how frustrating it is to edit common elements like the date in a footer, or a logo, or a design change you want to make across all your Templates. So today we are really excited to announce the release of Postmark Layouts — a way to define commons elements like CSS, Headers, and Footers, and reuse those Layouts across many Templates.
We just released an update to the status page that lets you see the status of each individual service, and also drill down into the response times and past incidents for each service.
We just released an update that lets you push template changes from one server to another. Check out our blog post for all the details.
You can now for search for a template from the UI. No more sifting through pages and pages of templates to find what you’re looking for!
Today we released some layout updates to our template pages. This first update focuses solely on quick wins at making it easier to manage more templates with longer naming conventions. It also sets the stage for our next updates in the pipeline like template searching and aliases.
Keep an eye out for phase 2 and 3 changes in the coming weeks!
We’ve made tons of design improvements in the Postmark app over the past few months. From a new activity feed, to a better DNS Settings page, all the way through a redesign of our webhook pages, we set out to understand exactly what you need to do on those pages and flows, and design the best possible experience for those needs.
Today, that philosophy gets extended to one of the most-used pages in the Postmark app: the Servers page. You’ve been asking us for a while to add features like search and better sorting options to that page, and today we’re happy to give you that, and much more.
We just finished work on a series of small updates to the app that work together to help you pick the pricing plan that's right for you, and make the whole "paying for Postmark" thing a lot more pleasant. Below is an overview of the changes.
Instead of a gauge that shows that you're "in the red" as soon as you hit your monthly limit, we now have a much better indicator with three states:
This will clear up a lot of the confusion about where you're at with your usage.
We've improved the messaging we show when it would be beneficial to you to upgrade.
Our billing emails used to be text, and they're now beautiful HTML templates. We now also tell you if you can save money by upgrading to the next plan.
New users will now see the pricing calculator in the app, so they don't have to leave the app and go to the marketing site to do the calculation.
We're constantly improving Postmark and taking care of small issues and annoyances that we find (or you send us!). We wanted to start telling you about these fixes, so from now on we'll update you every few months about the bug fixes and other small tasks we take care of in between our larger feature projects.
Here's a brief overview of all the bug fixes and small changes we completed in April and May of this year:
We now disable all the third-party scripts that collect data about users visiting our website if the user has Do Not Track enabled. This includes analytics and A/B testing services, as well as less obvious data collectors like live chat.
This one has been a long time coming… Today we’re happy to announce that you can now — yes, finally — perform searches on the sender signatures page. No more going all the way to page 594 (yes, some accounts really have that many sender signatures!) to find that one elusive one you’re looking for.
We release a simplified DNS Settings page to make it easier to ensure great delivery for your email. But we didn’t stop there — we also made some backend changes to streamline how we authenticate domains for email sending. Let’s go through some of those changes.
Hot off the heels of releasing advanced user roles and permissions, today we’re giving you a way to add extra security to your account by enabling two-factor authentication (2FA).
For the longest time we’ve only had two types of accounts: a single Account Owner, and separate Viewers. Viewers are only able to view reports, email activity, and receive email digests for the servers they are assigned to. So, today, we’re adding two new roles to Postmark: Account Admins and Server Admins.
You can now add emoji to your Postmark subject lines, and they’ll render correctly in your favorite email clients. Of course, emoji are already supported in the message body, so there are no changes there.
We released some significant updates to the activity feed to increase information density and clarity, upgrade the filtering experience, and add the ability to export the activity feed to a CSV.
