Task

Campaign Builder

We are happy to announce that we are releasing the first open beta version of our reworked Media Configuration which got a new name: the Campaign Builder.
The Campaign Builder was created using the most recent Salesforce lightning web components framework, allowing it to take advantage of the most up-to-date features available in the Salesforce ecosystem.
Besides a reworked, modern user interface we added a number of performance enhancements and added feature capabilities, that we believe will benefit all clients and make campaigns easier to plan and operate at scale.
If you are interested in more information about it please contact your Technical Account Manager or support@advendio.com.

A complete release is expected around mid 2022. From January 2022 onwards, we will continue to improve this feature based on iterative input from customers who want to take advantage of the features given by our beta release. Enhancing targeting capabilities to support geographic, device, and connect targeting is in scope for early 2022.
