  1. Implement multiselect fields

    I was a bit surprised to find that Bronto does not support multiselect field types. This would be very useful for us, and I imagine others as well.

    We're asking customers questions such as: which are your favorite brands, please select the ones you like. Right now, we need to make a checkbox field for every brand, and store yes or no for each. We're also asking customers which special types of products they're interested in. With 16 brands and 6 special product types, we need 22 fields for 2 questions. With a multiselect field, we'd only need 2. It…

      We do plan to create a field type that allows for multiple answers, but do not have an estimated release date right now. This change is a major departure from our current functionality and would impact how fields interact throughout the platform – segments, automation, reporting profiles, etc. It will not be a small project, and will take time to fully complete, but I will keep this ticket updated as more information is available from Engineering.

    • Offer a date field without the year

      Just ask for month and day (no year), so birthday campaigns can be implemented without asking people for their birth year. Some people are sensitive about giving this information.

      • Relational Tables

        Hi !
        It would be very useful to add some custom tables and be able to attach them to a contact.

        For example, a contact can have 0 to N subscription, so a custom table will be a "subscription" and each subscription can have custom fields like status, ...

        Thank you in advance !

        • Realtime producttag usage and preview

          Right now the producttags can only be filled in while sending a message. This gives a big risk, I can only check if the producttags are filled in properly by sending a test message. Though when I send the new message I have to refill all the producttags, if I make a mistake all our subscribers get the wrong product in their newsletter.

          This is a big risk, it also doesn't make sense to not be able to preview the products before the email is sent.

          In this feature using the producttags the products should already be picked within the…

          • customsource

            We use the source and customSource fields found in your API documentation to track the source of our customers who have been added to Bronto. Why can't I see these fields in our Contacts Table? Not sure what the point of providing this data to your system if we can't see it within your interface...

            For your reference, this is the API Document:

            • Add an additional user ID instead of just using email address

              It would be great if Bronto had a built in user ID.

              It's a little creepy and possibly in violation of Europe's GDPR for us to even have email address as an option for the analytics connection settings..

              However, it would be nice to retain the option to track individual users in our external analytics and that could be done if we mask their email with a Bronto generated ID instead.

              • Make preferred send time a field

                I have seen this be suggested for 'contact exports' but this would be useful to create segments for contacts who preferred to be emailed in periods of the day. IE morning afternoon evening

                We cannot always use send time optimization, due to it running over 24 hours. In a sale period, this could mean customers could receive the email after an offer has closed.

                  • Allow direct_update to update fields using automated URL segment like _bta_tid

                    Instead of limiting direct_update to the cookie haveing the cookie present, allow it to have a parameter like email, contact API ID and/or use the _bta_tid URL segment. This would make it much easier to update fields for contacts based on browsing, clicking, carting, etc. and give us better control over the data.

                    • make it possible to translate values in fields

                      You can only enter one name for example in English for the values in a field (for example pull down values). But if you have a shop in multiple languages, this means you cannot use the same field with its values for a webform in a different language
