Digesto

How can we improve Digesto?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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.

    • 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!

      • 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.

        • 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

          • 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

            • 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

              • 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.

                • 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.
