May Improvements and Bug Fix Roundup
  • It’s now possible to filter an Opportunity Funnel Report by Smart View, allowing you to further analyze your opportunity pipeline performance.
  • We've continued our progress to upgrade our lead filtering experience. Users with access to our old text-based queries will no longer see two versions of the Leads tab in Close. During this upgrading process, users will still be able to access text-based queries via an on-page link.

April Improvements and Bug Fix Roundup
  • It’s now possible to set a delay in hours (additionally to days) between the required and optional steps in the Sequences. This will make sending the call follow-ups faster in the Call and Email Sequences.
  • We fixed an issue where attaching multiple Supporting Documents of the same type to a Regulatory Bundle would result in an uninformative, generic error when the user tries to submit the Bundle for a review.
  • We fixed an issue where Close would prematurely hang up on leads leaving a voicemail message for a Close user / Group Number. Now, the system finishes recording the message automatically after 30 seconds of silence (replacing the previous 5-second threshold).
  • We added a new look for the buttons in the interface (rounded corners).

New Feature
Activity Feed Search

You can now filter the Activity Feed on Leads by a keyword or phrase. Simply type into the search box on a lead, and your Activity Feed will show only activities matching your word or phrase. Each activity will be expanded, and phrases will be highlighted to help you easily understand the matching context.

Additionally, we’ve added a date range filter that will allow you to isolate only activities between two dates. Combine this filter (and any other existing filter) with the new search input to quickly find what you need in Close!

New Feature
Sending MMS

It’s now possible to send MMS in Close, allowing you to send images and other forms of media (videos, PDFs, audio files, and more) to your leads the same way you send SMS today.

It's available for US and Canada-based numbers. If you have an eligible number, you'll now see a file attachment icon when crafting a new SMS, or you can simply drag and drop files directly onto your message.

We'll also now display thumbnails for media sent and received via MMS.

  • We upgraded our Stripe checkout flow, so now users are redirected to and from a Stripe checkout page when adding or updating card info.
  • We redesigned certain interface elements - login screens, page headings, and Opportunity statuses badges.
  • We fixed an issue where users couldn’t log out of the “verify email” onboarding step.
  • We fixed an issue where the email composer sender select would stay disabled even after a new connected account was added.
  • We improved the Team Management users table to properly show 2FA as enabled even if the user has been blocked (fail ten 2FA codes in a row).

March 24, 2022
New Feature
Calling on Sequences and more

It’s now possible to add Calling as a Step to your Sequence - improve your workflows and the effectiveness of your prospect communication. Add (required or optional) Calling steps, assign a Caller or a Group, enroll your Contacts and start calling them from a new To Do section, showing on the Overview tab in the Sequence details.

Apart from that, we’ve added the following improvements:

  • We show more details about Sequence-related statuses and errors and how to handle them.
  • We now use Contact’s timezone for scheduling emails and Sequence calls.
  • We added a User filter to the Sequences Report.
  • It’s now possible to search for Contacts in a particular Step and see all the Sequences that Contacts are enrolled in a dedicated Sequence column in Contact Filtering.
  • We added support for Sequence reassignment when removing a Connected Account.
  • It’s possible to bulk enroll Contacts to Sequences in the Contact and Lead Filtering.
  • We added a search box along with Active and Archived filters to the Sequences list view.

February Improvements and Bug Fix Roundup
  • We added Multi Sorting capabilities to the new Leads and Contacts Filtering pages. Now you can sort by multiple columns, drag-n-drop sorting order, switch between ascending/descending sort for every sorting column, and clear the fields
  • We fixed a bug, where emails with anchor links would sometimes break email rendering in the application.
  • We fixed a bug, where we would sometimes fail to rent a number and say there aren’t any matching the user’s specification (even though there were numbers in stock).
  • We improved the Sequence and organization navigation behavior - navigating to the Sequence from a different organization will now automatically switch you to that organization.
  • We fixed an issue, where the email composer would occasionally drop your previous “Send As” Sender choice.

New Feature
Receiving MMS

It's now possible to Receive MMS in Close. It's available for US and Canada-based numbers. You'll see them in your lead activity feed as an SMS with attachments.

January Improvements Roundup
  • We raised the limit of allowed contacts per lead from 200 to 300.
  • We updated the design of the upcoming meeting notification bar. Additionally, we no longer show the notification bar if the meeting is canceled and if the current user did not respond to the upcoming meeting.
  • When a Trial user wants to choose a plan but exceeds the account usage limits (Email templates, Pipelines, Custom Activities, etc.), we notify and instruct them how to address it.
  • When removing a user, we only show reassignment options for the types of objects (task, opportunity, email, etc.) that are currently assigned to that user. We also present how many of these objects would be reassigned.
  • We improved the display of the “Role” column on the Team Management page.
  • We redesigned Email, SMS, and Status Change badges in the Lead Activities feed so that users have an easier time telling the difference between different Activity types.
  • We now send users emails when their regulatory bundles are accepted or rejected by Twilio.
  • We display email attachments preview, in the new tab, instead of an immediate “open or save file” prompt. If a user actually wants to save the file, they can still do it afterward (e.g., with Cmd/Ctrl + S).
  • We now give more context around what’s about to happen when you attempt to remove a Connected Account.
  • We made the “activities are being filtered” message in the lead page more sticky, so you’ll always have a chance to remove the Contact filtering if needed.

  • Users with a comma in their names can now invite new users to their organizations.
  • You’ll see more consistent names in the table headers across the Lead search (e.g., “Company” with “Name”), Contact Search (e.g., “Contact Name” with “Name”), and Importer sections.
  • You can now decide whether you want to automatically archive your Gmail emails or not when you hit “Done” in the Close Inbox. The toggle is exposed in the Connected Account Settings under “Done/Archive Sync”.
