Campaign Details in Reports

Your Campaign performance report will now list your campaign’s details so you don’t have to go back through your campaign to see which Delivery, Audience, or Conversion settings you chose while setting up your report.

New Email Content Block API Endpoints

You can now manage (create, list available, get information) your Email Content Blocks via API!

Custom Email Unsubscribe Landing Page Update

The default custom Email Unsubscribe page has been updated with a sleek, more modern look.

iOS SDK - Notched Phone Support Improvement

Improved support for in-app messages on “notched” devices (for example, iPhone X, Pixel 3XL). Full-screen messages now expand to fill the entire screen of any phone, while covering the status bar.

You won’t see many updates in the Docs reflecting this change just yet - but they’re on the way!

SAML/SSO

Single Sign On (SSO) provides companies a secure and centralized way of controlling access to the Braze dashboard. In short, a single set of credentials can be use to access different applications, including Braze.

In addition to Google Sign-In using OAuth 2.0 support, companies would like SSO with Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) support. This enables them to seamlessly integrate with large identity providers (IdPs), including Azure Active Directory and Okta, which support the latest industry standards (SAML 2.0).

Braze supports:

User Profile Image Removal

We are removing the user profile pictures displayed in Braze User Profiles and User Searches.

Connected Content in Content Cards

You can now use Connected Content strings and functionality in Content Cards.

Connected Content calls to external servers will happen when a Card is actually sent, not when the Card is viewed by the User. Similar to Email, dynamic content will be calculated and determined at sending time, rather than when a Card is actually viewed.

Null ‘Reply-To’ Address

Customers can now set a null value for an email messages’s “Reply-To” address from the Email Settings page in Braze or using the API. When used, replies will be sent to the listed “From” address. You can now personalize the “From” address field as dan@emailaddress.com and your customers will have the ability to reply directly back to Dan.

To set a null value for an email messages’s “Reply-To” address from Braze, go to Manage App Group in the navigation, then the Email Settings tab. Scroll to the Outbound Email Settings section, and select Exclude “Reply-To” and send replies to “From” as the default address.

Campaign Comparisons

Look at multiple campaigns at one time to compare their relative performance, side-by-side in Braze - in one window!

Template Dispatch ID into Messages with Liquid

If you want to track the dispatch of a message from within the message (in a URL, for example), you can template in the dispatch_id. You can find the formatting for this in our list of Supported Personalization Tags, under Canvas Attributes.

This behaves just like api_id, in that since the api_id isn’t available at Campaign creation, it is templated in as a placeholder and will preview as dispatch_id_for_unsent_campaign. The id is generated before the message is sent, and will be included in as send time.

“Show Only Mine” Setting Persists

The “Show Only Mine” filter on the Campaign grid will remain “on” any time you visit the Campaigns page.

A/B Testing Updates

You can send a one-time A/B test with up to eight variants (and optional control) to a user-specified percentage of a Campaign’s audience, and then send the best variant to the remaining audience at a pre-scheduled time.
