And we listened; As of now your latest changes in the advanced settings will be saved automatically. This way, you do not have to redo this step every time you send a newsletter.
- Tag-based display of content: With the “eye” symbol you can decide for each content element in your newsletter, whether or not a recipient is supposed to see said content based. You can display or hide selected elements based on the tags your recipients have.

WooCommerce: Updates for v3 plugin
The WooCommerce plugin is now available in the updated version 3. Here you can use the following new features:
- Decide, which of your customer are to be transferred as “active”: Before the initial import of your WooCommerce data you can choose whether you want to transfer all contacts, or just certain groups (newsletter recipients, customers or Other). Here you can find more detailed instructions for the import via plugin.
