Sprint 97 Release Notes
Sprint 97 went live on September 1, 2018.
In Sprint 97 we integrated a couple items relating to our Mass Email capability. We have added Merge Fields within the new Email Template builder so templates are in a ready state when called into the Mass Email Wizard. Also, Aristotle 360 will now provide the option to capture the reason an individual Unsubscribed from an Email list. Our UI/UX team completed the User Interface redesign for the Conduit Management Application. We anticipate releasing the new Conduit Management application in Sprint 98. Lastly, there were a variety of performance enhancements within this release as well.
New Email Template Editor Merge Code Integration
The August Release delivered a new Email Template editor. During this release we have integrated Aristotle Merge Code fields within the Modern Template Editor so your template is in a ready state when called into the Mass Activity Wizard. Note: User will still need to add Aristotle links using the traditional method for adding links to action alerts, webforms and other Aristotle resources.
Select Merge Fields Button to Insert Merge Fields. Notice we have broken out the Merge Fields in related groups.
Email Unsubscribe Tracking – Reason for Unsubscribe
Aristotle Mass Email services now supports, as an option, the ability to track the reason for an email unsubscribe.
After an advocate has selected Unsubscribe Link, in the email, they are immediately unsubscribed. There was no change to “One Click Unsubscribe” process. Now, from the Email Unsubscribe Confirmation Page the advocate will have the opportunity to record the Reason why they are unsubscribing. A default Group Category has been created within all databases called “UNSUBSCRIBE REASON”.
The Aristotle 360 Administrator has the ability to manage the available “Reasons” displaying on the Confirmation Page. New Group(s) may be added using the normal method within Settings->Add/Edit Groups.
You may view the Reason an email was unsubscribed in the Global Unsubscribed Email Address panel where a new column has been added called “Reason”. If blank, no reason has been provided by the individual. You may also export the list by selecting the Export button.
Note: Since an email may be associated to one or more individuals the Reason/Unsubscribed status is not viewable within the Individual(s) record.
New User Interface
Aristotle 360 has supported State Conduit management and reporting for a decade. We are revising the user interface and simplifying the workflow to make this system even easier to use. During this release we worked on a new User Interface. In the next release we will have it ready for release.
The images below represent the new interface:

Show Election Period in Grid
To assist in transaction linking we know show “Election Period” within the linking grid. In the past, user may be confused if they were linking transactions where two transactions showed same amount and date.
Enhance Load Speed of Action Center
We have radically improved the load times of long Action Center lists from a minute to several seconds
Enhance Performance of Group Member Removal
When editing a large group it would appear that the page was no longer responding. Although still active, due to the number of records processed, we have enhanced the method to edit the groups and improved the overall performance of the action.
