  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.

  2. 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 !

  3. 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…

  4. 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:

  5. The Ability to Have Multiple Values for a Field Like Radio Buttons

    When inserting a custom contact field on a webform, and choosing the "radio button" type, we are currently only able to allow 1 of the options from the list to be selected. Although a work-around for this could be to create a custom contact field for each option you might want to offer and then add them to the webform with their own checkbox - this is very time consuming. The ability to have multiple values for a field like radio buttons would be an extremely helpful feature.

  6. More Global Account Variables and Fields

    Right now we have the ability to create custom contact fields such as %%last_name%%. These are set at a contact level. We would like to create dynamic fields that aren't set at a contact level, but are set at the account level. Similar to %%!account_address1%%.

    The use case for this is creating automated messages with dynamic field values that update regularly. For example an automated monthly message could say "Congrats to this month's contest winner, John A. from Indiana." The "John A." and the "Indiana" would be global variables that we could use in the email.

    In order to accomplish…

  7. Multiple date picker options for date fields

    It would be great to have options for date pickers in the date fields section. There is currently the 1 date picker but it would be great to have a variety like a triple field drop down for month, date, year.

  8. Adding Fields During Import

    Certain consumer based ESPs allow you to create a filed in the importing process, to account for fields you may need to add and for faster importing.

  9. Custom contact field with field type for additional phone numbers

    Please create custom contact field type for additional phone numbers. We need to have a specific phone number outside the typical work/home/mobile (for instance, we need a fax number).

  10. Ability To Bulk Import Field Data For Segment Creation

    As the option currently doesn't exist in Bronto to create range location segments off of fields like City, Zip, and State it would be useful to have the ability to bulk import cities into segments for creating field lookups.

    This would at least give people the ability to bulk import a range of cities or zip codes to cross-reference subscribers fields against.

  11. Editable Options within a Field

    For the fields that have a "Pulldown Menu", allow the existing options to be editable.

    We have recently renamed a few of our restaurants but are unable to rename those locations in our favorites field because we would lose all the data that came with it, including it would disappear from users who have already selected it as their favorite. Allowing these options to be edited would make things so much easier, without the need for a complicated workaround.

  12. 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.

  13. 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
