New Sandbox / Starter Sites

A new Sandbox Site was created from the new Fast-Start Site so you can test and evaluate liveSite features and configurations without messing around with your own production liveSite. If you do accidentally change or delete something you need later, you can always go to the Sandbox Site and grab it.

 

To show-off the power of Custom Layouts, each new liveSite now comes complete with a fully-functional liveSite website — ready to go — so you don't have to start from scratch. This beautiful and amazing responsive site template includes a fully-customizable site theme, over 100 free stock photos, and hundreds of design elements and content blocks you can mix and match to create your own unique website.

Save For Later Custom Forms

Now Custom Forms can be saved without being submitted. The submitter can return to the site at a later time to complete and submit the Custom Form. This is ideal for forms which cannot be completed and submitted during a single website visit.

 

And to complete this feature, any workflow set up for the Custom Form will be triggered only after the form is eventually submitted.

Customer-Only Portal

A new Site Setting grants access to a Private Folder whenever an Order is placed. This new setting provides a way for you to create a customer-only portal where you might place your customer support ticket app or other pages and files that you only want your paying customers to have access too.

 

To provide instant access to this area upon purchase, the auto-registration feature has been updated to automatically login new users when their account is created. Together, these features make it seamless for a site visitor to place an order and go directly to your customer portal for downloads, protected information, or customer support.

Dynamic Search Fields

And Dynamic Search Fields also respond to changes made to other Dynamic Search Fields so selections are further refined for site visitors as they make selections.

 

This results in a great improvement in the site visitor's experience and helps them to zero in on the relevant information they are searching for much faster.

Automatic Unpublished Events

Calendar events can now be unpublished automatically, a certain number of days after the event ends, so that old events no longer appear on the calendar or in search results.

 

This keeps your past calendar views clear so your site visitors are not confused by old and outdated event information.

Abandoned Cart Auto-Responders

Ever wanted to contact customers that start an order but never complete it to increase your sales? Now you can. Auto Campaigns now support a new 'Order Abandoned' action.

 

Setting up a Campaign Profile with this action will send an email reminder with a link to the abandoned cart automatically to each prospective customer that creates an order but doesn't complete it within the time frame you specify.

Negatively-Priced Products

Products can now be priced below zero and will affect the order total. This provides a way for customers that need a credit applied to their order (say for the return a deposit, rebate, or other credit they have earned from a previous purchase) which needs to be reflected as a line item on the order. Just creating an offer discount is not sufficient for accounting purposes.

 

Negative pricing can also be useful for creating a bundled product and giving customers the option of removing items from the bundle by adding negative priced products to their order, thus lowering the order total. This is considered a form of up-selling since more customers will typically order the entire bundle than remove items from it.

Grant Offers Feature (Part 1 of 2)

Grant Offer is a new Custom Form Property workflow that will generate offers (single-use key codes) and emailed them to prospects whenever a custom form is submitted. This feature is ideal for enticing site visitors to complete a form in order to receive a personalized offer code. Now you can create automated offers such as “Sign up for our mailing list and receive 5% off your next order.” And this feature is smart enough to allow you to specify “new customers only” so it doesn’t generate offer codes for existing customers that don’t need the incentive. Combine this with the new Auto Dialog feature to create pop up promotions that produce proven results!
