The latest product updates on Waypoint.

As the volume of messages on your platform increases, it can quickly become difficult to get a sense of the messages sent to individual users. To address this, we've made it easy to see your contacts at a glance and be able to drill down into each contact to see a full timeline of message events. There are two ways to drill down into a contact page:

  1. Click on an email address from an individual message activity log.
  2. Click on the new top level 'Contacts' link to see a view of all of your contacts sorted by last message.

From here, you can view metrics and filter the given contact's activity.

  2. If you override a color at the block level, you can now clear the override to reset back to one of your global theme colors.
