In this upcoming release we continue to improve Journeys and adding new features but as usual, there are updates to other parts of the platform as well.
The new segment editor has been running on Beta mode for quite some time for you to try out and now we've now closed the beta period. With this release, the new segment editor will be your new standard editor. For a short period you will still have the option to view your segments in the old editor as well.

We updated the snippet editor with giving the code more room but have also added some warnings when e.g. when the code isn't correctly closed. Learn more about snippets.
Journeys - New feature: Anomaly detection
With this brand new feature you can get notified if a journey is sending an unusal amount of messages to your database. You can get notified with an email or get a notification in Slack.
Journeys - New item category: Actions
We're introducing Journey Actions, which are steps that executes an event that doesn't affect the journey movement for a contact.
When a contact reaches an action step, the step will be managed and the contact will move on to the following step.
First action out is Set attribute, which will update all contacts passing the step with a given value in your database.
Journeys - New wait: Priority wait
With this new wait you can limit the amount of Journey messages sent to a contact on one day. If a contact is about to receive messages from different Journeys on the same day, this wait will cancel the following message from the Journey(s) you consider to be lower prioritized.
Journeys - Editing: Move a step
Journeys are now allowing you to move steps within your journey.
Journeys - Editing: Improvements for disconnecting steps
We've made some major changes in how to disconnect steps while editing. You can not only disconnect a single step or all the following steps but also select a start and endpoint.
Updates for Peregrine
If you're using Peregrine you will be able to mark sensitive data in order to protect your customer's personal data. This, to maintain complete GDPR compliance (in accordance with the recent Schrems II ruling). Read or blog post on the subject.
Sensitive data will not be synchronized with Peregrine which may affect the speed when testing and generating if attributes marked as sensitive is used in a segment.
By default the standard attributes original id, first name, last name, middle name, email address, mobile number and date of birth are marked as sensitive.
Sensitive data is managed on Account settings.
That's all for now. Reach out to your Success manager if you have any questions.
