Embedded campaigns enable customers to create custom content in a text format and download that content to their app. The plain text format gives app developers the power to build tailored, native experiences, while still leveraging all the other features of in-app messaging such as targeting, triggering, A/B testing, localization, personalization, QA testing, and scheduling. For more information, see Introduction to app updates
mParticle connector updates
Swrve now offers support for initializing the SDK using AUTO Mode and setting the Swrve external_user_id in mParticle. The connector has extended its support for sending events to apps on Swrve’s EU stack. Finally, the connector also supports setting a custom identifier other than the mparticle_id as the swrve_user_id. For more information, contact your CSM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Batch email support with Mailjet
Swrve’s new campaign workflow now supports creating one-time and recurring batch emails using Mailjet. Leverage all the same targeting, personalization, localization, and A/B testing by creating emails in Swrve and use an existing Mailjet account to handle email delivery. For more information, see Adding campaign content and Scheduling your batch campaigns.
In-app messaging single platform delivery
The in-app messaging workflow now supports delivery constraints on platform selection and device type (mobile vs. TV). This capability ensures to appropriate in-app message content is delivered to the chosen platform and TV or mobile device. For more information, see Creating in-app messages.
Campaign retargeting for push notifications
Swrve’s audience builder now supports targeting users based on exposure to and interactions with push notifications. Create audience filters based on push notification events, including sent, delivered, influenced, engaged, and clicked button. Base your audience filters on a specific campaign’s push notifications or any push notification sent through Swrve. For more information, see Targeting your audience by push notification events and Intro to campaign retargeting.
To help you organize your campaigns in Swrve, we’re excited to introduce campaign tagging. Create and manage a custom set of tags, and apply them as you set up your campaigns. Then use the tags to quickly filter and customize your Campaigns center view. For more information, see Campaign tagging.

For more information, see Localizing and A/B testing campaign content.

Targeting users by churn propensity
Create proactive campaigns that target users before they churn with Swrve’s new churn propensity scores. For example, use churn scores to create reporting segments and campaign audiences based on simple criteria, such as low, medium, or high chance of churning. In turn, use these audiences to create more targeted campaigns to improve retention and anti-churn, as well as minimize the risk of experimental upsell campaigns. For more information, see Targeting users by churn propensity.
