Historical Tracking Now Available for Group Members

Want to know what you've sent to a particular recipient recently? Have they opened or clicked links in your messages?

With our new Historical Tracking feature, you can now see your activity history for an individual address stored in a JangoMail Group.

To pull up the history go to Groups and E-mail Addresses and select your Group. Within the Group, select the desired address to display that subscriber's details in the right hand panel. At the top of the details screen, click to View historical tracking information for this person.

The detailed report will display to show you the 30 day history. You can use the dropdown to go back 60 and even 90 days for the recipient.

API enhancement allows sending email campaign with on-the-fly personalization data

We have enhanced the "Send" API methods to allow you to pass in on-the-fly personalization data, along with email addresses. Therefore you can now send a personalized email campaign in one single method call without sending to a JangoMail Group.

Traditionally, when using the API to send a personalized email campaign, you would have to first create a Group with AddGroup, then add or import members to the Group with AddGroupMember or ImportGroupMembersFromData, and then send to the Group with SendMassEmail. You can still do this if you prefer, but now there's an easier way as well. The following methods are affected:

  • SendMassEmail
    Sends a mass e-mail with a plain text and/or HTML e-mail. Returns a string.
  • SendMassEmailPrevious2
    New method. Sends a previously saved mass e-mail to a new set of recipients. Returns a string.
  • SendMassEmailRaw
    Sends a mass e-mail, given a raw message including MIME parts and a MIME boundary. Returns a string.

  • To pass in personalization data, use the ToOther input parameter to pass in the actual set of data. The set of data can be in comma-separated form or in any other row and column delimited format that you choose. You may use whatever row and comma delimiter you like for the data in ToOther. The ToOther parameter should only contain the data, and not the field names for the data.

    Use the Options input parameter to specify the field names and the row and column delimiters for the data in ToOther. The Options parameter is a comma-delimited list of attribute/value pairs. The attributes relevant to this feature are:


    You can use these character codes for their corresponding delimiters:

    "c" represents a comma
    "s" represents a space
    "n" represents a newline, or a hard break
    "t" represents a tab

    The ToOtherFieldNames attribute must be a pipe (|) delimited list of field names corresponding to the data in ToOther.

    Let's do an example!

    I want to send a personalized email campaign to 3 people, and I want to use First Name and Last Name as additional personalization data.



    Hello %%FirstName%%

    Hello %%FirstName%% %%LastName%% -- your email address is %%EmailAddress%%

Send one-off emails to just a single Contact or Lead, send to selected Contacts or Leads based on criteria that you define, send to all of your Contacts or Leads, or send to a pre-defined Salesforce® Campaign. And you can do all of this from with custom JangoMail buttons within your Contacts, Leads, and Campaigns tabs.
    • Unparalleled real-time Reporting capabilities, allowing you to track opens/clicks/bounces/unsubscribes/forwards and activity through your web site
