What we’ve improved for you  

Ever since we introduced the Campaigns update we’ve gotten a lot of requests to be able to edit distributions after sending them. We originally didn’t implement this because we wanted to restructure the way we save and send distribution emails.

Last week we silently updated our distributions so that you can now save distributions as drafts, edit a distribution after it’s sent and cancel distributions at any time (even while it’s in the middle of delivering the emails). This update might not feel like anything impressive yet, but this clears the path to sending scheduled distributions which we plan on introducing later this year.

Besides that we’ve fixed sharing campaigns to multiple newsrooms (Portfolio feature) and we’ve improved the Campaign overview to give a better overview of the distributions and when they’ll be sent out.
