  1. Manually set next run date.

    Allow user to define the date of the first run. For example, I can set a Digesto to run weekly, but schedule the first run in only 3 weeks.

    This will also help regulate updates to your Digest. i.e. if a Digesto is set bi-weekly and I edit (deactive-reactivate) this will reset the bi-weekly cycle to next week and could cause the email to go out on 2 consecutive weeks. Setting a proper first run date would allow to realign with "normal" cycle after a change.

  2. Trigger Email Based on Other Criteria

    At the moment you can only trigger a Digesto driven email to send at a specified periodic interval. It would be really neat if we could trigger emails to be sent based on other criteria. For example:

    - When a new item is posted to the RSS feed. This way we could offer a new email as posts are put up

    - Based on Marketo Triggers. This way users could receive Digest emails when certain actions are taken elsewhere (form fills, other email is opened, section of Web Site is browsed).

    We chose not to allow publishing in real time to avoid having multiple emails going out in a short – and out of control – interval. Ex: if your bloggers where to decide to publish 3 article in one day – it would send out 3 emails in that same day.

    As an alternative solution we have developed a function in the scheduler that allows you to check for new content up to 12 times per day – which should be close enough to a real time trigger, but you will control the paste.

    To do this, select the Daily schedule and use the “+” button to add more times to your schedule.

    Regarding the Marketo triggers, we do agree that it would be nice to have that, but it’s not on our roadmap for now due to the complexity of developing it….but maybe someday.

    Thanks for your feedback

  3. Reorganize list of Digests

    Is there a way to re-organize our list of digests?
    Ideally we could group them into a handful of collapsible folders.

  4. Predefined number of posts

    It would be great to have a feature that would allow a predefined number of posts in newsletter, even if it were older articles. Just in the case that we only have 1 new article for the week, the newsletter won't looks so empty. Thanks!

  5. Twitter share link within each post exceeds the character limit. Can we revise to...

    Feedback received from Lily at Wepay : Twitter share link within each post exceeds the character limit. Can we revise to -> "{Blog.Title}" bit.ly link #payments via @WePay. Also, how do I revise this myself in the future?

    Twitter won’t count the url in the limits anymore (this is recent…since 2016 I think). So despite a negative count, the post will go out. I tested it to confirm – see screenshots attached. Although we cannot get a bitly link in Digesto today, I think there is room to improve the user experience. We will consider these improvements in future release.

  6. Ability to create a Draft version of a custom Digest Template

    When using custom digest templates, it is always "live" or in production. Outside of creating a separate digest for testing purposes, you have to get all of your edits in the template before the next time the digest is run.

    It would be great if there was a "draft" version of the custom template, so that you could run the test campaign & then approve the draft when ready.

    We have to run the test template campaign at least once through Litmus to test that our template and new content display properly for various email applications

  7. Ability to Test New Posts Only Feature

    In this FAQ: http://community.perkuto.com/knowledgebase/articles/322146-step-4-test-and-activate-your-digest it says: "The TEST will grab all posts (as opposed to the scheduled Digest that will only grab newly published content since last run)"

    We need another button that allows us to "TEST NEW POSTS ONLY" to ensure that we're only grabbing the new posts since the last test... the way that the scheduler works.

    Hi, thanks for your feedback! I can see that ‘testing" for new posts would be very usefull . There is currently a way to build a quality assurance Digest and I think it could help with filling the gap that you described. Here is a new article I’ve just built to explain the concept. Your feedback is welcome! http://community.perkuto.com/knowledgebase/articles/843975-building-a-digesto-quality-assurance-qa-program

  8. Ability to create a digest or automated email of the top 5 newsfeed content

    We want to be able to automate the delivery of the top 5 or 10 most popular headlines/stories based on the most clicked headline or story link from our newsfeeds. We want to do something like the 5 or 10 most read stories and send it to a particular segment. Does anyone know how to do this?

    This is a complex feature for us to develop, considering that there is no indicator of the popularity of your posts.

    Your CMS or RSS toll is likely the best suited solution to achieve this.

    For example Drupal and Workpress both offer customization option or plugins to extract most popular feeds.

    Ex:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/display-most-popular-posts-without-plugin-by-viewed-taxonomy

    https://www.drupal.org/project/mostpopular

    Once your most popular feeds are structured in an RSS/Atom feed, Digesto can easily plug into it and distribute to your subscribers.

  9. One click email send

    It would be great if there was a one click option to send out emails immediately. Working within the scheduler as a workaround is clunky and you need to go back and reset it afterwards

  10. Ability to apply different style to first/featured post

    This one was requested a couple times via support tickets: would like to be able to "feature" the most recent post in the email layout by applying specific style to it. Ex: First post would diplay in 1 column full width image and larger fonts while subsequent posts would be in a 2 columns format.
