Changelog
(Coming Soon) New and improved navigation
new
Vero Cloud
og-cloud-nav@2x
A brand new update to the main navigation in Vero Cloud is coming in the next few days. The new design brings back text labels to make it easier to find the feature you’re looking for and groups each feature into two logical new categories. The
Campaigns
section has everything relating to sending and reporting on your campaigns, while the
Cloud CDP
section has everything related to the customer data and events stored and tracked into the platform. All the same features from the previous navigation are present in the new sidebar, under these two categories.
Introducing this new design and categorization to Vero Cloud is taking us one step closer to our future vision for Vero that delineates and clarifies the three fundamental parts of an effective marketing platform, Campaigns, Data and Delivery.
We'll be rolling out the new Navigation to all account in the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled. 👀
Clone nodes in Workflows
new
Vero Cloud
og-cloud-clone@2x
In our pursuit to make workflows easier to create and manage, we’ve added the ability to clone individual email, push, filter or delay nodes in a Workflow. This will come in handy when creating campaigns and adding multiple nodes with similar content or logic.
The clone option is available after selecting a node and shown in the bottom right corner of the detail view. Once selected, the cloned node will appear directly below the original.

Cloud - bugs and improvements
new
Vero Cloud
It's been a busy few weeks here at Vero, we've mostly been focusing on improving the Cloud product experience. Here's a bunch of bugs and improvements we've made during the sprint cycle.
Improvements:
  • Updated ‘add node’ menu in Workflows
    - With the refreshed menu for adding nodes to a workflow its easier to see all the available options.
  • Quick link to ‘edit email addresses’
    - We’ve added a link which directs to the ‘edit email addresses’ settings page to the ‘from’ control in campaigns. So now there’s less clicks required to add a new email address to a campaign.
  • Create placeholder events from trigger dropdowns
    - We’ve made it easier to create placeholder events from inside a campaign or workflow. There is now a ‘create new event’ option in the trigger event dropdowns.
  • Unsaved changes label in workflows
    - We’ve added a label on the workflow canvas showing if the workflow has unsaved changed or is up to date, making it easier to see if you should save the workflow to persist your changes.
  • Node limits and warnings
    - Due to the amount of locally stored data and CPU needed to display complex workflows with a large number of nodes, we have added some warnings and limits to the Workflows UI to advise best practices based on the number of nodes. There’s also a new maximum limit of 150 nodes.
  • Added strikethrough option in the drag and drop editor
    - A strikethrough text decoration option has been added to the inline text editor of the drag and drop builder. Simply select some text and select the strikethrough icon from the text formatting options above.
  • Added limits on image and gif uploads
    - Smaller images means better performing emails, so we have added a limit of 1Mb per image and 5Mb per GIF. If you absolutely need to add images larger than 1Mb, it is still possible to add a URL to your own self-hosted images.
  • Improved user session management
    - We’ve updated our authentication methods for logging in and out of Vero which will strengthen the security of your account. This improvement will also better support users if they happen to be logged in across multiple devices, as well as automatic logging out of sessions if they’ve been inactive for a period of time.
Bugs:
  • Incorrect modal styles
    - Fixed an issue that caused the recurring newsletter schedule and preview options to display incorrectly.
  • Fixed unit selector on inputs in drag and drop
    - Made a minor fix to the number based controls used in the drag and drop editor that were not correctly showing the selectable units for a given control in some browsers.
  • Events missing or not searchable in conditions drop-down
    - We’ve fixed an issue that in some cases prevented events from appearing in searches inside a conditions dropdown when creating a segment or adding logic to a workflow.
  • Campaign titles for cloned Workflows displaying incorrectly in Reports
    - We have fixed an issue that displayed the incorrect campaign name in drop-down lists on our Reports page when the campaign belonged to a workflow that had been cloned and renamed.
  • Segment refresh error with range comparison conditions
    - Segments containing conditions that compared date ranges in user properties (e.g. “greater than or equal to YYYY-MM-DD”) were sometimes failing to refresh. We’ve identified the cause of the regression and have fixed the issue.
  • Fixed unit selector on inputs in drag and drop
    - Made a minor fix to the number based controls used in the drag and drop editor that were not correctly showing the selectable units for a given control in some browsers.
  • Social icons background color in drag and drop
    - Fixed a bug affecting the LinkedIn and Instagram social icons in the drag and drop editor wherein the background color would not accurately update when changed.
  • SendGrid IP Pools not saved
    - Fixed an issue where changes to the IP Pools setting on a SendGrid email channel were not saved.
Connect - bugs and improvements
improved
fixed
Vero Connect
Here's a few of the bugs and improvements we've made to the Connect product in the latest sprint cycle.
Improvements:
  • Updated look to the homepage
    - We’ve updated the layout of the home page to fit everything in a more compact view.
  • Improved reliability of importing medium-large Snowflake audiences
    - Following on from the recent release of our Snowflake data source integration, we received some user reports that querying and loading audiences that were 2-10 million records or larger in size were failing intermittently. We’ve made some improvements to our Snowflake database connector to improve performance and reduce memory consumption so that audiences of these sizes should now be handled much more reliably.
  • Added strikethrough option on drag and drop editor
    - A strikethrough text decoration option has been added to the inline text editor of the drag and drop builder. Simply select some text and select the strikethrough icon from the text formatting options above.
  • Added limits on image and gif uploads
    - Smaller images means better performing emails, so we have added a limit of 1Mb per image and 5Mb per GIF. If you absolutely need to add images larger than 1Mb, it is still possible to add a URL to your own self-hosted images.
  • Improved user session management
    - We’ve updated our authentication methods for logging in and out of Vero which will strengthen the security of your account. This improvement will also better support users if they happen to be logged in across multiple devices, as well as automatic logging out of sessions if they’ve been inactive for a period of time.

Invite team members to your Connect account
new
Vero Connect
teams@2x
We’ve added the ability to invite new and existing Vero users as team members of any Connect project. This feature is included on our $20/month pricing plan.
Up until now Vero Connect—formerly known as 'Newsletters'—has been a single-user experience. From now on account owners can easily invite colleagues to collaborate on any aspect of designing and sending a campaign.
If you currently have your own account and have been invited to another users project you can switch projects using the new project launcher, which also supports switching to Cloud—formerly 'Workflows'—projects.
teams-project-menu@2x
To invite a colleague to your Connect account, simply go to Settings and select Team members. From here, select Add team member and enter an email address.
We’re really excited to launch Teams in Connect, and to see all the ways teams collaborate on messaging. Future features will include granular permissions/roles and shared user account settings (across Connect and Cloud accounts).
Snowflake data source integration
new
Vero Connect
snowflake@2x
We've been working hard on adding foundational backend support for more data warehouse integrations. With those improvements to the backend made, we can now introduce Snowflake as the next data source integration, with more to come in the future.
Our Snowflake integration makes it easy to load data directly from your Snowflake data warehouse and use it to define the audience for your message, personalise the content with rich data and send your marketing campaigns faster than ever.
To connect your Snowflake database, go to the Data Sources menu, select Add a Data Source then select Snowflake. From here you can add your Snowflake credentials and, once the connection has been successfully made, query directly using SQL directly from inside your Connect account. Load the results as a message audience and send personalized messages knowing your customer data is accurate and complete.
Project Launcher
new
Vero Cloud
og-cloud-launcher@2x
To make it easier to switch between multiple projects and get an overview of all the projects you're a member of we've launched a dedicated projects launcher. Some customers have tens of projects (up to 100!) and other customers work as agencies with multiple businesses. In the launcher view you will see a list of all the projects you're a member of (from both Cloud and Connect products). To open the launcher, simply go to the project menu in the sidebar and select
Show all projects
.
Recent Bug Fixes
fixed
Vero Cloud
  • Workflow attachments not displaying.
    We’ve fixed a bug that would prevent email nodes in a workflow from displaying that they had any attachments, even if they did.
  • Unsaved changes when using the browser back button.
    A bug that prevented the ‘unsaved changes’ prompt from showing after making changes and then hitting the browser back button has been fixed.
  • Sections with three columns don’t cover full width.
    In the drag and drop editor, there was an issue that meant sections with 3 columns would not cover 100% of the width of the email on mobile devices. This was due to each column using full percentages rather than a percent with a decimal value. Its 100% fixed now! 💯

Vero Connect
cloud-connect-conversion@2x
We've renamed 'Newsletters' to 'Vero Connect' and 'Workflows' to 'Vero Cloud'.
These names better reflect the needs these products solve and our long-term direction. Each product has the same focus of delivering better automated customer messaging: the difference is how and where you want to access your customer data.
We’re super excited about where we’re going and how Cloud and Connect enable product and marketing teams to better use their data to send game-changing messages to their customers.
