Contact Data migration now is easier than ever! The new, easy-to-follow process helps you import your contacts into Automizy using CSV format.

In the previous version of the “Import Contacts” process it was difficult to upload contacts and their data into Automizy database.
Therefore, the new Contact Data Migration process is renewed! Now you can upload your contacts to Automizy in a step-by-step process, following a wizard that shows you the process transparently.

It is 4-step process:

1. step: Go to Contacts/Complete list and click on “IMPORT CONTACTS”

2. step: Firstly, you have 2 choices: throw a CSV file from your computer on the interface to import it. Or you can also try it by downloading a sample CSV list from us and importing that list by adding it to the interface. The second option is for people who doesn’t have a list or who would like to try the importing process.

Add your contacts in CSV format

3. step: Now you can match the different types of contact data in your CSV file with custom fields on Automizy. If you scroll down, you can add contact tags to every contact in the importing process and you can also create and add them to a segment.

These are the information types you can see:

  • Contact Information (name, position, email address, web page)

  • Contact Tags
  • Custom fields with values

New contact profile page

Product Update: Publish Automated Workflows from the editor

We changed the way you can activate your automated workflows in Automizy. From now on you will be able to do it from the Visual Workflow editor.

We saw that it was difficult to activate your automations from the list of Workflows. It was a high risk to make mistakes: it was easy to forget to activate your workflows or you accidentally activated it.

Therefore we relocated from the Automation/Workflows menu to the Visual Workflow editor. Also, we hid a little gift too from Mizy when you publish a workflow. 😉

The old Workflow Activation:

Activate workflow

The new Workflow Publish:

Product Update: In-depth & real-time automated email analytics

Evaluate the performance of each email in your drip campaigns easily and dig deeper to identify the root of the problem itself!

It’s important to know the overall performance of your drip campaigns, so we created the Automation Dashboard. This is your own radar that warns you as soon as abnormalities arise.

Not long ago, we also released the Workflow Analytics feature that helps you compare the overall performances of your drip campaigns.

And now you can dig much deeper!

Main metrics of automated emails

If you enter one of your workflows that have at least 1 email sending action in it and turn on the “Statistics” icon, you will see that a slider appears on the right side of the Visual Workflow Editor.

This slider shows you every email you have in your drip campaign and by choosing them by moving your mouse cursor above the email sending box in your drip or above the slider, you will see which email you are looking at.

The slider shows you the main metrics of your automated emails such as sending volume, open-, click- and unsubscription rate. Comparing the performances of your emails are very easy.

Customizing your tables’ values (contacts, segments, drip campaigns, etc.) is a very important part of your work. Therefore we released an update that will facilitate your daily routines.

1. Inline Customization to save you time

In order to save you time you can change any values in the tables without leaving the actual page.

Just click on the field you want to edit, exactly on the text you want to modify. Now you are able to rewrite it and accept it if you click on the thick mark. You decline your edits by clicking on the “X” button.

2. Display Editing Options

User interfaces are good if you see only the options that are logical and available at the stage you are actually at. In addition, it’s great if it’s intuitive too.

You can do bigger editing than just changing names of emails, segments or values of custom fields. Click on the field after the name of the relevant value and a slider will appear with every options that are relevant for you:
