Segment Name and Description Update #

We have introduced a new field for segment descriptions, limited to 250 characters, and set a character limit for segment names to 40 characters.

Simply enter your desired outcome in the input box, such as ‘I want to sell more membership for my club.’ The system will then generate various segments that may align with your chosen goal. If you’re interested in learning more about a particular proposal, click ‘Tell me more,’ and the corresponding attributes for that segment will be generated.

Additionally, we have added the ability for different users to configure integrations for these ad accounts, with the only requirement being that the creator of the configuration must have Full Control on the Facebook ad account access level.

DMARC validator #

We have added another email authentication protocol – DMARC a Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance that helps prevent email spoofing, phishing, and other fraudulent activities. It allows domain owners to specify how email from their domain should be authenticated and what actions should be taken if authentication fails. Read more about DMARC configuration

After enabling AB Testing in the Email Builder, you can:

  • create multiple variants for the email sendout and experiment with content, subject lines, and visuals to optimize engagement
  • set the percentage of the targeted audience that will receive different variants (for example: 10% will receive Variant A email, 10% will receive Variant B email)
  • define criteria for the winning variant, such as total or unique open rates or click rates, for quick optimization
  • schedule the winning variant sendout to the remaining audience (remaining 80% of targeted audience will receive the Winning Variant email)

Release 1.69 #

Released: 27.10.2023 #

Sending e-mail notifications before the expiration date of integration with Facebook #

To ensure that our users can consistently utilize the Facebook integration and share segments from CDP to Facebook, within this release we have implemented the option to send email alerts prior to the integration’s expiration date. Facebook requires the integration to be renewed every 60 days by revoking the authentication token for security reasons.

Release 1.68 #

Released: 11.10.2023 #

Selecting fields when exporting segmented profiles to a CSV file #

We now provide flexibility in field selection when exporting segmented profiles to a CSV file. You can choose to export profile data containing all attributes or select only specific ones.

Multi-Identifier handling for SMS Sendouts #

Users of the Data Talks CDP have the opportunity to handle multiple email addresses and/or phone numbers per profile. Similar to how we handle multiple identifiers for email addresses, we have introduced this feature for SMS sendouts. This functionality allows you to choose whether you want to send messages to all available phone numbers on your profiles, to some of them, or to only one phone number per profile.

Export unsubscribed email addresses from the campaigns #

In the CDP’s email builder, users can access detailed information about the selected recipients while creating an email campaign. This includes the count of unsubscribed email addresses. Now, CDP users can export a CSV file to identify the specific email addresses that have opted out.

With this release we are enhancing our communication toolkit – the integration of Viber Messaging is here! You can diversify your communication strategy by leveraging Viber alongside traditional methods.

This integration allows you to connect with your audience in an even more engaging way as Viber offers Rich Media Sharing. You can share photos, videos, button links directly through Viber, enabling you to convey your message more vividly and creatively.

Just as with the SMS Builder, the process for Viber Messaging follows a similar user-friendly flow:

Step 1: Create Your Viber Message

  • Choose a specific segment from your audience that you want to target
  • Name your campaign to keep it organized and easily identifiable
  • Craft the content – whether it’s text, images, or videos – that you intend to send

Step 2: Preview (Optional)

  • Take advantage of the optional preview feature to ensure your message appears as intended before sending it out

Step 3: Schedule

  • In the third step, schedule your campaign to be sent out immediately or select a specific date and time for the future

Step 4: Confirm

  • Before finalizing, review and verify all your sendout settings to ensure accuracy and precision.

Step 5: Analyze 

– Once the campaign is underway, proceed to the fourth step where you can delve into comprehensive analytics to assess the performance of your campaign.

Storing video files in the Content Library #

We have expanded the range of file types that can be stored in the content library to include video files with extensions such as .mp4, .3gp, .avi, .webm, .mpeg. These files can be utilized for later use in Viber messaging.

Pop-up announcing new features #

We are dedicated to the ongoing enhancement and refinement of our platform to serve you better. To ensure you are always in the loop with the latest developments, we are introducing the announcement pop-up. Whenever we roll out a new feature, you will receive a notification to keep you informed. If a particular feature demands additional configuration, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Customer Support Manager for assistance.

Pop-up announcing new features in Data Talks Sports CDP

Release 1.62 #

Analytics Framework – Public URLs for dashboards more accessible #

With this release you can create a public URL to your dashboards directly from the dashboards list.

This feature allows you to easily share and monitor supporter analysis and ticketing sales status with your colleagues throughout the organization, without requiring them to have CDP access. To ensure the security and privacy of the public dashboards, we have included the ability to set passwords for each dashboard.

Segmentation with negation #

When using negation in your segments and you combine a negated attribute with another attribute(s), you will have two options to choose from: to treat attributes combined or independently.

As an example imagine we have two conditions:

  • Purchase source equal “Online”
  • Ticket Category does not equal “VIP”

With the default behavior, your segment will result in:

  • People that purchased something online and none of the online orders included VIP tickets

With the alternative behavior, your segment will result in:

  • People that purchased something online and had never ever purchased VIP, not even offline

Release v1.61 #

Release v1.60 #

Released: 15.06.2023 #

This release contained several general improvements to the overall performance of the application.

Release v1.59 #

Released: 02.06.2023 #

Analytics Framework – Text control allows level structures in bullet points #

The users in the CDP are now able to use various levels of bullet point structure in a text control. It allows the users to contain more detailed written information inside their dashboards.

Analytics Framework – Between function in Filter by #

The users in the CDP are able to show the values between A and B in the controls which have datasets by using one Between function for Filter by column.

For example, if the chart needs to show only the purchase values transacted last 7 days, go to filter by section and choose Between in the dropdown of arguments. Set minimum value as 7 days ago and maximum value as today.

Content Library – The number of files stored is available #

The users in the CDP using Content Library are now able to check the number of content files in their own library, for all files and per folder. It helps the users to manage and structure their files easier than before.

Data Onboarding – Skip columns during uploading a file #

In order to import data into the existing data point through Data Onboarding, the data file needs to have all the columns in the destinated data point. However, the file uploads have been failing even when the file includes every column in the data point and also additional columns which are not included in the data point. It is because the file upload process cannot recognise matched data points for the files that have additional columns. To make this file to be uploaded successfully, the users needed to delete columns from their files only for importing them to the CDP. 

To get rid of this inconvenience, now the Data Onboarding in the CDP offers the function to skip columns which are included in the files but not needed for the data point, during the file upload process. The users only need to untick the checkbox above each column name to skip the column, rather than being bothered by editing their original data files. Only the columns with ticked checkboxes will be imported and used to find matching data points.

Email Builder – Option to select a profile for dynamic fields in a preview email #

If the email sendout includes dynamic fields, the dynamic fields are changing with the information of each recipient. If the user wants to send a preview email before sending it out, there are two options: Select a segment among the ones existing in the CDP to receive the preview or insert individual email addresses manually. 

If selecting a segment for sending the preview, the dynamic fields in the preview email are changing with the information of each recipient in the segment selected. 

If inserting individual email addresses manually, the user can choose whether the dynamic fields of the preview email have values or not. Unless ticking the last checkbox, the preview email will be sent without any values in the dynamic fields of the preview email. By ticking the last checkbox, the user can see the dropdown to select one profile among the profiles included in the Target Audience for the email campaign, which will be the source for dynamic fields of the preview email.

Release v1.58 #

Released: 19.05.2023 #

Email Builder – Send email previews to a specific segment #

The users in the CDP now are able to send the preview email to the selected segment in addition to the selected individual addresses. If they choose to send the preview to the selected segment, all email addresses included in the segment will receive the preview email. Try sending an email preview to multiple email addresses at once by selecting a segment of internal users who need to approve a sendout before activating a new campaign. If the email campaign includes dynamic fields, the users are also able to choose one profile from the target audience of the campaign which fills the dynamic fields of the preview email.

Release v1.57 #

Released: 10.05.2023 #

In this release, we have two updates for Segment Builder among other general improvements to the CDP.

Editing time for existing recurring segments #

The users in the CDP now do not have to create a new recurring segment only for changing the recalculation time schedule. The time set for the next run (next calculation for the recurring segment) is now editable regardless of whether the recurring segment has been executed or not. The change in the next recalculation time schedule will be applied for the following recalculations as well according to the set frequency.
Assume that there is a recurring segment which is recalculated at 10:00 AM every day and the recurring segment has already been calculated more than once. Now it is possible to change the recalculation schedule to 11:00 AM every day or 13:00 PM every day on the user’s need.
NOTE: Completed recurring segments cannot be edited.

Check and Export profiles with invalid email addresses from the segments #

The users in the CDP are able to control not only the total number of profiles belonging to a segment but also a count of valid and invalid email addresses belonging to these profiles. It will help the users to understand the discrepancies between the number of profiles in the segment shown in the CDP and the number of profiles exported to other systems, such as Marketing Automation and Advertising tools. The profiles with invalid email addresses in a segment will be excluded once sharing the segment with other systems. The segment builder is now showing the exact number of profiles which will be excluded in the Create/Edit screen of each segment. It is also available to export the list of profiles with invalid email addresses to check them in detail.

Release v1.56 #

Released: 27.04.2023 #

Analytics Framework – Public Dashboards #

The analytics dashboards in the CDP are now able to be shared with non-CDP users with permanent public URL links. The permanent public URL links of the dashboards are accessible without CDP access, which allows to share and monitor the supporter analysis and ticketing sales status within the entire organisation without giving CDP access to every colleague. To protect the public dashboard from being shared with unauthorised people, the CDP also allow users to set a password for each public dashboard. The URL link of each dashboard and password setting can be found in the setting of the dashboard which is accessible by clicking ‘Customize Analytics View’.

Email Builder – Excluding segments and individuals addresses #

The users in the CDP are now able to select not only which segments and email addresses are included in the campaign but also which ones are excluded from the campaign. The segments and addresses selected for inclusion cannot be excluded, but if included segments and excluded segments are sharing some addresses, the shared addresses are excluded from the campaign.

Data Exploration – Find NULL values #

There is a possibility that there are empty cells(Null values) inside the table in the CDP database. If the files uploaded through data onboarding are missing some cells or the integration with the CDP importing the data from the external system allows some columns as optional, NULL values can exist in the data source. In Data Exploration, the users in the CDP are able to check where the null values are by selecting specific columns and ticking the new search filter ‘Is Null’. This search filter condition will help the users to find which rows are missing values for the selected column.

Release v1.55 #

Released: 18.04.2023 #

Add individual email addresses to the campaigns #

Until now, the users in the CDP were able to choose only the segments in the CDP to compose the recipients of their email campaigns. Now the users are able to add an individual email address to the recipient list for their campaigns if the email address is included in the contact information existing in the CDP.

Export invalid email addresses from the campaigns #

The email builder in the CDP shows detailed information of recipients selected while the user is creating the email campaign, including the number of invalid email addresses. Now the users in the CDP are able to check exactly which email addresses are invalid as well by exporting them as a CSV file.

Data Onboarding – The column names in the files to be uploaded are editable #

The users in the CDP are able to edit the column names in the file they are importing after selecting the file in the Data Onboarding file import. Unmatched column names between the file to be uploaded and the destined data point often blocks the system to find the right data point for the file, which means file uploading failure. Edit column names before selecting the destined data point will prevent this failure in advance.

Release v1.54 #

Released: 12.04.2023 #

Segments from Segments #

The users in the CDP are now able to include or exclude existing segments once creating new segments. The lists of existing segments become a segmentation attribute. To include the profiles of existing segments in a new segment, set Segment Name as a segmentation attribute, set ‘belongs to’ as rule, and select the existing segment which needs to be included. To exclude the profiles of existing segments from a new segment, set Segment Name as a segmentation attribute, set ‘not belongs to’ as rule, and select the existing segment which needs to be excluded.

Release v1.53 #

Released: 04.04.2023 #

Analytics Framework – Campaign Analytics and Web Behavior Tracking #

Users in the CDP are now able to see two new dashboards directly in the sidebar. 

  • Campaign Analytics: Performance analysis of email/SMS campaign executed in the CDP
  • Web Behavior Tracking: Behavior analysis of website visitors

The Campaign Analytics and Web Behavior Tracking dashboards will be configured automatically without any additional task by the user if the required data set is available in the account. The campaign Analytics dashboard will include key campaign KPIs (open-, click- and engagement rates) for everyone using the email builder and SMS sendout function in the CDP. The web Behavior Tracking dashboard will be shown to users who have configured web behavior tracking in their CDP. 

Release v1.52 #

Released: 21.03.2023 #

Analytics Framework – Data Source in Public #

Users in the CDP are now able to find the Data Source tab while editing dashboards of Analytics Framework. For configuring analytics dashboards, you can use the tables and columns existing under the Data Source tab. When visualising data in one chart from multiple data sources, it is necessary to have a relationship between those sources. The configured relationships you can find on the same tab. The Data Source tab ultimately enables users to gain a deeper understanding and build more meaningful dashboards using the underlying data structure, including schemas, tables, columns and relationships.

Release v1.51 #

Released: 10.03.2023 #

Facebook Custom Audience Integration #

Facebook Custom Audience Integration allows users to use the segments created in the CDP when creating advertising campaigns in Facebook Ads Manager, which enables their Ads campaign to target the right ad to the right audience. 

The users in the CDP can use the shared segments from the CDP including contact details and information as retargeting and lookalike segments resources for the next Facebook campaign, for example, offering the new jersey advertisements with Facebook Ads to the segments who have already purchased their previous jerseys before and Lookalike Audience.

The configuration of Facebook Custom Audience Integration is available on the Admin page of the CDP. Authentication of Facebook Business Manager and Facebook Ads Manager accounts is necessary.

Google Ads Integration #

Google Ads Integration allows users to use the segments created in the CDP when creating advertising campaigns in Google Ads Manager, which enables their Ads campaign to target the right ad to the right audience. 

The users in the CDP can use the shared segments from the CDP including contact details and information as retargeting and optimized targeting resources for the next Google Ads campaign, for example, offering the new jersey advertisements with Google Ads to the segments who have already purchased their previous jerseys before. The segments shared from the CDP can be also used for optimized targeting + audience expansion resources. 

The configuration of Google Ads integration is available on the Admin page of the CDP. Authentication of Google Ads Manager account is necessary.

Discount Code as Button #

The users in the CDP are now able to insert the discount code into their email campaigns in a format of a button. Once inserting the discount code block into the email template and finding the setting tab in the right sidebar, the users are able to see two dropdowns for selecting a set of discount codes saved in the CDP and for selecting the type of discount code. Selecting ‘discount code as button’ creates a button with a hyperlink. This option is best used to cover cases, where you would like to send your supporters to unique landing pages or when your discount codes are simply unique URLs.

Exact Match Search in Data Exploration #

From now, searching and exploring data on the Data Exploration page allows advanced accuracy and prohibits unwanted search results. If the user in the CDP ticks the box of ‘Exact Match’ and searches for a value with the setting of the column, the table of search results only shows the rows whose value of the set column is exactly matched with the value the user entered. For example, if the user enters ‘2737’ with setting buyer_id column for search and ticks ‘Exact Match’ box, the search result table will show only rows which have exactly ‘2737’ in buyer_id column and the rows which have ‘12737’ or ‘27379’ values will be excluded.

Release v1.50 #

Released: 28.02.2023 #

Box with Whisker Chart #

The Box with Whisker Chart allows users to see their data vary across a bigger data set with the indicators related to the data distribution: Maximum, Minimum, 1st Quartile, 3rd Quartile, Median and Mean. With this new chart type, the users can understand, for example, not only ticket distribution across season ticket holders and single ticket holders but also stadium attendance distribution across these groups within one chart by using this Box with Whisker Chart type. The Box with Whisker Chart can be found in the chart selection dropdown while configuring the dashboard in Analytics Framework.

Release v1.49 #

Released: 09.02.2023 #

Email Builder – Preheader #

Users of the Data Talks CDP are now able to insert the preheader, the preview text below the email subject for their email sendout. The recommended number of characters for the preheader is from 30 to 80. Using a personalized preheader increases the open rates of your sendouts which can then result in increased ticket and merchandise sales.

Analytics Framework – Cloning Dashboard #

Users of the Data Talks CDP are able to clone existing dashboards by clicking a button which is found in the rightmost of the list view. The cloned dashboard is going to the bottom of the dashboard list.

Automated Web Behavior Tracking #

The new automated web behavior tracking allows users of the Data Talks CDP to configure their web behaviour tracking environment using directly inside the CDP. All you need to do is configure your domain(s) by submitting your domain address and Google Tag Manager ID and using the generated Application ID inside Google Tag Manager. This improvement reduces the configuration time and makes web tracking services run within minutes. 

Multi-Identifier Handling #

Users of the Data Talks CDP have the opportunity to handle multiple email addresses and/or phone numbers per profile. With the latest addition to the CDP, you are able to choose whether you want to send newsletters to all of the available email addresses of your profiles, to some, or to only one email address per profile. If you choose to send only one email address per profile, the prioritisation rule needs to be set in order to decide which email address will be selected among multiple email addresses. This applies to SMS sendout and phone numbers as well.

Data Exploration #

The new data exploration feature in the CDP allows users of the Data Talks CDP to preview their data as it arrives in the CDP. Now it is available to see the raw data existing in the CDP according to the table and column it belongs to in the databases. The data is available to be exported as a spreadsheet file as well, with the delimiter as |. A detailed guide for exploring your data: Data Exploration

Allowed file types by default: jpg, jpeg, gif, png, pdf, ppt, pptx, csv, xlsx, doc, docx and pdf.

Triggered Action – SMS Sendout with recurring segments  #

Analytics Framework – Grid Upgrade #

Our main goal when working on the new grid was simplicity and smooth interactions.
Now, for example, while creating your dashboard, rows will be added automatically when dragging & dropping new chart types from the sidebar. It will also be easier to customize how you view your dashboards, as you can rearrange and resize charts between multiple grids (both rows and columns).

Analytics Framework Improvements #

  • Columns in tables with valid URLs are clickable
  • We have introduced more dependencies to charts so they can simultaneously use data from multiple data sources. This could help you to track, for example, changes in time not only for sold tickets but also for sold and scanned tickets.
  • All charts are now auto-scaled, which means that charts with large-scale numbers will have different values on the Y axes than those with small-scale values. That will help you to read your data.

Release v1.39 #

Released: 14.09.2022 #

Analytics Framework – Time-series chart [NEW] #

The new chart is now available. Time-series chart will help you to deal with vast sets of data.

Within only one chart, you can analyze the whole period (5 years) or narrow it down to a shorter time period if you spot an interesting trend.

Email Templates – Locking Organizational Templates #

Release v1.22 #

Released: 27.02.2022 #

Segment Builder – Triggered Actions[NEW] #

With Triggered Actions you will be able to rule-based email campaigns directly from the segment you’ve created in the Segment Builder. This means you’ll create fully automated campaigns that are sent according to a set frequency. 

After you’ve created your segment, you can decide if the conditions in the segment also should trigger an email campaign to the profiles in the segment. In order to activate this you need to do the following:

  1. Create a segment.
  2. Decide if the segment is a one-time (ad-hoc) segment or a recurring segment. This will impact how often the triggered email campaign is sent.
  3. If you create a one-time segment you simply choose when you want the email campaign to be triggered (this can be anytime after you have created the segment).
  4. If you’ve created a recurring segment, the triggered email campaign will reflect the frequency of the recurrence of the segment. If you’ve set the segment frequency to daily this means it will trigger the email campaign daily. 
  5. If you want to stop sending a triggered campaign, you need to deactivate the campaign by editing the email campaign (not the segment) and disable the toggle for “Is this email ready to be sent”.

Email Builder – Duplicates #

In the case of multiple profiles sharing an email address, for instance a family email address, users now need to decide how to handle these campaigns when duplicate addresses appear. Before this improvement, the people that were included in a segment received the newsletter as many times as the email address was included in the segment. Now you are prompted to decide how to handle this in a pop-up window with two alternatives:

  1. Send email to all profiles
  2. Send email one-time per email address

SMS Sendout – Unsubscribe link #

When creating an SMS campaign you need to ensure that the recipients can unsubscribe from your SMS campaigns if they wish to do so. This is now easier than ever. You simply add an unsubscribe link in the SMS text box when you create your campaign by clicking the icon marked below. Your recipients will be able to click this link to unsubscribe themselves from marketing messages.
