Version 5.0 Teaser: Easy Collaboration with the Mark-up Tool
We saved the best for last, people! We have been giving you sneak peeks of what’s to come when we roll out v5.0, and we’re ready to show you the ace up our sleeve. Drum roll please… Introducing EOA’s Mark-up Tool, our new gadget that will allow you to draw directly on a screenshot within our tool and share with colleagues so you can collaborate and troubleshoot on the fly.
Draw, circle and write on your email previews
When email marketers, devs and designers see issues in their email testing results, it’s time consuming and monotonous to document and describe what issues they see, where they see the glitches, and what specific email client and browser is causing problems. Think of the time suck it is to take screenshots of previews, jump into Photoshop, manually mark them up and share the marked up image with multiple team members. Yikes!
Well EOA subscribers, with our new Markup tool you take team collaboration to the next level by being able to draw, circle, comment, reply, and share issues you are seeing within the actual previews! We provide you with a canvas that overlays the previews so anyone and everyone on your team can visually and verbally express what needs to be fixed before you can hit “send.”
Once you’ve got all your email previews nice and marked up, share ‘em with the team members that will resolve the issues. When you send the share link to your team, your co-workers can easily navigate to the previews that are problematic as every email that was marked up has a blue comments box in the upper right-hand corner. Check out a screen capture of your inbox summary below.
Let’s take a look at some of the neat things you can do with the Mark-up tool, shall we:
- Comment section
- Color picker
- Weight picker
- Trash button
Now marketers, designers and developers alike can streamline their testing process and fix email renderability issues with ease by interacting and collaborating via Mark-up.
Be the first to get your paws on version 5.0!
All of the new tools we teased for Version 5.0 are available for EOA subscribers to beta test on 11/11/2014. Let us know what you think of the new tool by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
