Mailtrain v1.5 fixes some bugs and adds a new feature – link clicks statistics. Once you have sent a campaign you can check how many unique clicks a specific link in the message got. Read more here
This update brings the first automation features to Mailtrain as you can now create RSS based campaigns. Whenever a new entry is added to a RSS file, it is sent to list subscribers as a campaign message.
Details can be found [in the wiki](https://github.com/andris9/mailtrain/wiki/RSS-Campaigns).
Mailtrain v1.3 adds the following new features:
- New option to use an URL as message source (when message needs to be rendered a POST request with Merge Tags as the POST body is made against that URL). Read more
- New option to schedule sending. You can set optional delay time when starting campaign sending. Once this time is reached sending starts automatically. Read more
News from Mailtrain should be obviously delivered through e-mail newsletters but to keep not overloading subscribers’ mailboxes I set up this blog to post less important and more frequent announcements.
For starters, the development branch of Mailtrain includes some previously requested changes:
- You can schedule campaign sending time. For example you could say that the messages should be sent out after 10 hours and 30 minutes
- There is an option to use an external URL as message content. If this URL is set then a POST request with all message related Merge Tags as POST body is made against this URL. Whatever the URL responds (assuming it ends with status code 200) is used as the HTML content of the message
There are going to be a lot more features rolling out in the future, keep an eye on this blog to find out first!
