What’s New

Find out more about the latest Swrve product and feature releases.

November 2018

User identity

Track and target a user across multiple devices (for example, phone, tablet, web browser, smart TV), while also distinguishing between different users on the same device (for example, family members on a shared tablet or TV) with Swrve’s new User Identity feature. For more information, see Tracking your users with Swrve User Identity.

Facebook ad journeys

Customize your Facebook ad journey and user onboarding experience when a user installs your app from a Facebook ad with Swrve’s new Facebook ad-triggered campaigns. For example, depending on whether or not the user has already installed your app, take them directly to the app store first. When they open the app for the first time or return to the app after clicking your Facebook ad, display a custom in-app message to personalize their experience and improve conversion. For more information, see Facebook ad-triggered campaigns.


October 2018

Web SDK and push notifications

Track your users across devices and platforms, including web, and send targeted, personalized notifications to your website users with Swrve’s new web SDK and push notification campaigns. For more information, see Web push notifications.


September 2018

Smart TV SDK

Track your users across devices and platforms, including Tizen (Samsung) or webOS (LG) TV platforms, and send targeted, personalized message to your OTT users with Swrve’s new Smart TV SDK. For more information, see the Smart TV integration guide.

Audit trail

The new audit trail feature captures user activities performed on campaigns within the Swrve dashboard. Company administrators have access to these searchable and exportable logs to see what has happened on campaigns for each app and who performed those actions. Audit trails also include changes at the company level to capture changes to user access permissions. For more information, see Swrve Dashboard audit logging.

Geo-triggered campaigns

Our new version of geo-triggered campaigns include the ability to create polygon-shaped geofences giving you greater accuracy in defining your campaign trigger zone. We’ve improved the campaign flow and performance of the Geo SDK add-on. For more information, see Intro to geo-triggered campaigns.

Linking push notifications to in-app campaigns

In-app messages and Conversation campaigns now include the option to link to a related push notification campaign. Improve campaign engagement by displaying a related in-app message or conversation campaign immediately after a user engages with a push notification and quickly view the results for linked campaigns directly from the push notification campaign report. For more information about how to link your campaigns, see Linking campaigns—Push notifications to in-app.


August 2018

Swrve 3.0 UI

Swrve’s new fresh, modern dashboard has all the rich features you expect from us but restructured to make it really easy to create, launch, and manage your campaigns from start to finish. For a tour of what’s changed, see Welcome to Swrve dashboard 3.0.

Campaign management center

Swrve’s new campaign center provides a centralized, customizable view of all your campaigns. Filter your campaign view by state, channel, content, and schedule, and quickly view important details and metrics for individual campaigns without leaving the page. Create campaigns directly from the campaign center with our new simplified workflow. For more information, see Managing your campaigns.


June 2018

Payload targeting

Target your users’ historical activity on a more detailed and granular level than ever before with Swrve’s behavioral event payload targeting system. Where you might already target your users based on the count or recency of an event—for example, users who searched for a hotel at least three times or booked a flight in the last seven days—event payload conditions add more granular criteria that users must meet to qualify for the target audience. For example, users who searched for a flight in the last seven days, where the destination airport was LAX and the number of travellers included children. For more information, see Targeting your audience by event payloads.


May 2018

Roku

The Swrve Roku SDK is now available publicly. Like our other OTT-supported platforms, integrate the Roku SDK into your app to run in-app message campaigns, A/B test native app content, and report on the same analytics as you would in a native iOS or Android apps. For more information, see the Roku integration guide.

Batch push API

The Swrve Batch Push API lets you send push notifications to a group of Swrve users via a web API call. While Swrve’s standard push notification service lets you target a behavioral group of users at a predefined schedule from within Swrve, the Batch Push API lets you to send push notifications to groups of users or a custom message to individual users in response to events external to Swrve. For more information, see Swrve Batch Push API.


March 2018

Custom user roles

Swrve’s new Roles Management and Assignment feature lets you create custom user roles with any combination of permissions. You can assign roles to your Swrve users on a company-wide, app-level, or per user basis. For example, you may have a Junior Marketer role that has permission to create and QA test new campaigns, but not launch them. Or you may have a Data Analyst role that only needs to access various reports. For more information, see Managing Swrve user roles and permissions.

Trend reports

Swrve’s new Trend Reports let you create and manage reports that compare various metrics over time for all your users or selected groups of users. You can now compare app-level metrics, such as key performance indicators (KPIs), event counts and item purchases, with individual campaign metrics, letting you quickly see how different campaigns are impacting your overall results. For more information, see Trend reports.

OTT

As of SDK version 5.2, Swrve now provides integrations with several set top box and TV operating systems (‘over-the-top’ services or OTT). Swrve supports apps running on tvOS, AndroidTV and Amazon Fire TV, with support for Roku coming soon. Our OTT integrations let you run in-app message campaigns, A/B test native app content, and report on the same analytics as you would in your native iOS or Android apps. For more information, see OTT integrations.
