June Product Update

It’s June in Florida, and we can’t get enough of the beach. 🏖 This month, we’ve added a new feature to our Messages page, updated a few of our social media integrations, and made cosmetic updates to the Messages page. Check out these updates, and meet the newest member of our team below!

Product Updates

  1. Save Messages as Drafts:
    Have you ever been working on a text, but weren’t quite ready to send it? Introducing (🥁) our “save as draft” feature! Now in addition to sending or scheduling, you can save a message as a draft and come back to it later on the Messages Page. You can edit the text as many times as you’d like, and when you’re ready, schedule it for later or send the message right away.
  2. See which User sent a Message:
    Have you ever been curious who sent or scheduled a specific message in your Clearstream account? If you have several Users helping to manage your account, it can be tricky to see who’s been sending out texts. Now you can easily see which User has sent or scheduled out a message. Just head to the Messages page and check out the ‘created by’ column.
  3. UI Update for Scheduling Messages:
    Previously, when scheduling a message, you had to select your date, then preview the message, and then schedule it. We noticed people were commonly thinking they had scheduled out a message, but hadn’t actually clicked “Schedule Message” after previewing it. With this update, you’re now able to schedule messages faster, without having to preview the message first.
  4. Facebook Integration:
    Our Facebook integration typically doesn’t get a lot of love, but this month we made a few small updates. Now, the setup process when linking your Facebook page to Clearstream has been streamlined. When sending a message from Clearstream and also posting it to Facebook, if there is an authorization issue, Clearstream will automatically send an email to your account Owner.
  5. Twitter Integration:
    You can now send MMS to Twitter! Previously, MMS messages sent to Twitter would post without images. Now, when you send an MMS text in Clearstream and choose to post it to Twitter, it will include the image. 📸
