Using News Builder

News Builder is a major addition to Cameo’s template editor. With it you can compose structured mailshots from a set of ready-made, customisable blocks.

 Edit the text and replace place-holder images with your own in the usual way in the template editor. Text can include substitutions, of course. 

You can save individual blocks as amended, and these carry your own text for re-use as well as colour etc. Read More…

New form type: attendance

A new form type, called ‘attendance’, is available to let people check themselves in for an online event which they have previously booked for. Then it redirects them to the event’s web page.

The refine search controls provide this, but they’re a bit long-winded for this case. So now, there’s a short-cut: the different kinds of searches in the Search More menu have tick-boxes to do this particular narrowing down of results directly, by searching only within the results already found rather than the whole database.
