Resources Hub » Blog » Save Time While Doing More

The start of a new year means new goals and the chance to start fresh. That feeling of wiping the slate clean, both at home and at work, leaves us inspired and motivated for the year ahead. That feeling is all the more refreshing after a year like 2020.

In order to help you get organised for the year ahead, we’re highlighting some of our popular time-saving features. These will help free up your schedule so you can focus on more important things.

Here are some of our customers’ favorite features for saving time and doing more.

Features to help you find what you’re looking for

These actions help you move through your campaigns simply and quickly. Less time spent poking around looking for information means more time getting work done.

Campaign categories

Your campaigns are organised into easy to understand categories: draft, sent, and deleted. There’s also an overview page which shows your recent scheduled, draft, and sent campaigns at a glance.


You can create and filter by customized tags to organise your campaigns in the way that makes the most sense for your team. You can even use multiple tags for total customization.

Thumbnail and list view

You can choose to view your campaigns either in a list or as a series of thumbnails. List view provides a succinct summary of your campaigns, while thumbnail view shows a handy view of your email design.

Search improvements

If you can’t remember what you named a campaign, you can search by subject line and by category (such as draft, sent, deleted) to help you find campaigns faster.

Date filtering for sent campaigns

No need to scroll through all your sent campaigns to find the one from last January. Use the date filter to view campaigns sent during a date range of particular interest.
