We’ve implemented a number of usability improvements that should make your workflow in BuzzStream more efficient. These improvements will decrease the time you spend on tedious tasks so you can focus on building and maintaining contacts.
Bulk edit your ‘Do Not Contact’ list
BuzzStream is designed to serve as a central repository for all of your outreach relationships and it gives you a way to apply them to specific campaigns. As part of this, you have the ability to mark a domain or an email address with a “Do Not Contact” flag in BuzzStream. With this release, you can now quickly add in a list of email addresses or domains to your “Do Not Contact” list instead of adding them one at a time.
To add a list, just click on the gear icon in the top right-hand corner and go to the ‘Do Not Contact Rules’ page. Click on the ‘Add’ button and paste in your list.
Set Default Email Address For Projects
We’ve changed the way you set default emails in the project so that the app better supports the way most customers work across different projects. Now, when you start outreach in a project, you can set the default email address used for that project. This will ensure that you are always conducting outreach from the email address of your choice and will not impede your workflow as you reach out to your contacts. The process is really simple. When you first select an email address to send outreach, that email address will be set as the default. If you later change it, you will be asked if you’d like to set the new email address as your default.
Improved Outreach Behavior When You Click An Email Address
Prior to this release, when you clicked an email address from within the app you were usually directed to your mail client within the same tab. This was disruptive, so we’ve made the system much more intelligent. Now, as long as you’ve connected your email address to BuzzStream, we’ll open our email composer with the “To” address populated with the email address you’ve just clicked. If you haven’t connected your email address, we will simply open your email client in a new tab so your workflow isn’t disrupted.
Show Payment Fields In The Buzzmarker
People love the Buzzmarker because it provides much of the flexibility and functionality you can find in BuzzStream from wherever you are on the web. This improvement gives you the ability to show payment fields when you set the acquisition method as “Purchase”. It is no longer necessary to edit the contact from the BuzzStream app if you need to track payment info for your links.
