What’s New: March Product Updates

Over the past month, our product team has been working to implement small changes that make your user experience smoother and even more efficient.

1. Coming Soon: New and Improved Navigation for Gmail Users

This month, we’re rolling out a brand new navigation bar that puts your favorite Yesware features front and center. You’ll be able to access your Yesware dashboard, templates, and mail merges in just one click.

Expect to see this new navigation roll out over the next two weeks.Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 3.56.06 PM

  1. This navigation changes the location of the Mail Merge button.
  2. It’s now easier than ever to access your template library and send out messages proven to deliver high opens and reply rates. Here’s how:

 

2. Template Improvements in Outlook

Users can now insert a template into a new email directly from the template manager. No need to open “New Email” first before inserting a template. 

Here’s how it works:

Select a template and click “Insert.”
