As of this release we are enforcing sender email address authentication to ensure deliverability. This update will require admins to set up sender authentication in order to use a different admin email. If you have changed your admin email in Admin Panel > Site Messages, you will need to set up sender authentication if you have not already. This may require IT assistance. If you do not authenticate, your site could have email deliverability issues.
The email domain can be authenticated in the Admin Panel > Site Building Tools > Site Messages > Sender Authentication page. Enter the ‘Domain name you would like to use to send from’ and click Get Started. Then a list of CNAME records will display that need to be installed in the DNS provider to complete the verification process. After you have added these, return to the Sender Authentication page and click Verify. The system will alert you if there are any errors. If verification is successful, you can select the new domain from the @ dropdown under ‘Administrator Email’, enter in the username, and click ‘Change Administrator Email’.
Google and Yahoo are enforcing new rules for mass email senders. In February 2024, we must authenticate our emails to ensure deliverability for our clients. We are going to be enforcing email sender authentication for the admin email in Event Portal. This update will require admins to set up sender authentication in order to use a different email. If you have changed your admin email in Admin Panel > Site Messages, you will need to set up sender authentication if you have not already. This may require IT assistance. The email domain can be authenticated in Admin Panel > Site Building Tools > Site Messages > Sender Authentication. If you do not authenticate, your site could have email deliverability issues. Reach out to support with any questions.
Exhibitor Progress Percentage
- We fixed an issue where the exhibitor profile progress percentage did not include selected Product Categories.
Exhibitor Vanity URL
- Exhibitor profile vanity URLs that’s 45th character was a space was preventing the vanity URL from working, this has been fixed.
Sent messages now include the full list of users the message was sent to. Any additional users beyond six will be in a collapsed panel and can be viewed by clicking “View All Recipients”. This allows users to easily track to whom they have sent messages.
The exhibitor insights CSV now includes any user profile fields that are set to “Display on Profile + Search?” in Profile Manager. The “Display on Profile + Search?” setting can be found in Profile Manager > Edit Profile Block > Field Settings tab under Field Editor. This allows clients to provide additional information on attendees to exhibitors via exhibitor insights.
