Campaigns - Additional Options
In the Additional Options section of the Segment step of the campaign flow, the wording has been updated from “opened or never received” in the first drop-down menu to “opened or not received.” Those values have been time-boxed those to the time period selected in the next drop down menu of that option. This means if you select “opened or not received” and “two weeks”, it will look for profiles in that segment who have either opened a campaign in the past two weeks, or who have not been sent a campaign in the past two weeks. If they were sent a campaign three weeks ago, they will be included. If they were sent a campaign in the past two weeks (and did not open or click), they will be excluded. This allows you to target a significantly larger audience of potentially engaged guests.

Segmenting by User Defined Fields
Segments can now be created based off of the individual values in a comma-separated list of User Defined Fields from Contact Lists - this means you can create and segment on a value like “champagne” and return profiles who have the values “champagne” or “champagne, France” or “champagne, flowers” - saving you a lot of time to find people who bought champagne, rather than clicking every champagne value in the dropdown.

Upsells pricing by Day of the Week
You can now set “special prices” for certain days of the week. This allows you the ability to maximize upsells revenue by pricing in demand inventory higher/lower depending on demand for a given set of days. Charge more for room upgrades on weekdays if you’re a city center property, or more for flowers on weekends if it costs more for vendors to deliver. It is completely flexible and up to you how they're charged. We always err on the side of generating you more revenue - so will average out Upsells pricing for shoulder bookings, or charge the special pricing for things that are priced one off or per person.
