March marks the start of Spring, which also means we lost an hour of sleep. Luckily for you, with all things considered, it didn’t slow us down. We continued to ship new features, including newsletter delivery in your user’s time zone and Google Single Sign-On. Read on to learn what else is new this month.
Sending Newsletters in your User’s Time Zone
When scheduling a newsletter, you’ll see a new option on the review step to send within each user’s time zone. To leverage this feature, you’ll need a `timezone` attribute on your profiles. If you don’t have data for everyone, it’s no problem. Choose a fallback time zone then click Schedule.
Single Sign-On (SSO) with Google
Your team members can now login with their G Suite accounts! By enabling Google SSO, access to Customer.io is restricted to team members only in your G Suite organization. If Google SSO isn’t for you, keep an eye out because additional SSO providers will be rolled out in the following weeks. Or visit your Account Security page and let us know you’re interested in a different SSO option.
Data Warehouse Sync
Ever need to export data from Customer.io to a data warehouse like BigQuery, Redshift, or Snowflake? We can now export a select set of data to either a Google Cloud Storage or Amazon S3 bucket on a recurring basis. From there, it’s possible to import to any number of different data warehouses. For more details, check out our docs here.
Drag ‘n Drop Email Display Conditions
Personalizing content is the foundation of an effective messaging strategy. Adding display conditions in the drag and drop email editor makes personalization a little easier. How much easier? Highlight a row in the editor, define the conditions, and that will determine who sees it and who doesn’t. Plus, we’ll add the code for you. If you’re itching for more, read about it here.
