New Time Condition Operators
We introduced two new operators for Conditions with attributes of type time in the Rule Builder. Now you can use "Is Not" and "Is Not Between" certain dates or time periods. This can be used for any time attribute that you have setup with your integration.
For example, if you want to build a condition with the attribute "Current time" you can select the operator "Is Not" then define the day, time or even use another attribute you wish to exclude. This greatly improves usability if you want to exclude holidays specific days of the week from your promotions.
You can read more about Conditions here.
New data points have been added to your Campaign Insights. To give you better visibility of your campaign results, now you can track Accepted/Created Referrals and the Free Item effect in the "Campaign Performance" table.
These data points will be visualized in the table where you normally see Coupons, Discount Costs and Campaign Basket Value. Note that the data points will only appear if these effects are configured in your campaign rules. Learn more about Campaign Insights here.

New Cart Item FilterThere is a new filter step labeled "Select Nth Item" now available in the Cart Filter feature in the Rule Builder. Choose this option if you want to pick a single item from a list in a certain position from a customer's cart.
This is useful if you want to add a free item of the same product type to a cart. This filter step also allows you to use the item's attributes in both Conditions and Effects. Note that we have also changed the order of the filter steps and put the most commonly used options at the top of the list.
If you are not familiar with using Cart Filters in the Rule Builder yet, you will want to read:
Coupon Batch Editing
If you want to make changes to multiple coupon codes, you use the Edit Coupon Batch feature. Select a single code from the batch you wish to edit, and click the Edit Coupon Batch button that appears.
The changes you make will be applied to ALL codes with this Batch ID. If you wish to make changes to a single code after you edit a batch, simply select the single code and click Edit Coupon.

🗓 November 2018
New Coupon Editing
Now you can edit coupons directly in the Campaign Manager. If you made a mistake or need to modify a code, you can extend the expiration date, update redemption limits or edit attribute values. You no longer have to delete codes.
Note that you cannot edit the code itself for security reasons. Read more about creating and editing coupons here.
Deleting Customer ProfilesDid you know Customer Profiles can be deleted from your Talon.One account using the Integration API? If you store this type of data in your account, note that your customers have the right to request the deletion of this personal data under the GDPR.
To delete a Customer Profile from Talon.One you must use the API endpoint provided as we do not allow this functionality in the Campaign Manager UI.
You can read more here or if you are responsible for implementing this endpoint, please read the Developer Documentation. If you have any questions about sending or deleting data in Talon.One please contact us.
Deprecating Account-Wide Search Endpoint
Please note that we will be deprecating and transitioning away from the following endpoint:
/v1/application_customer_searchOur Management API exposes an account-wide search for customer profiles endpoint under the given URI.
We are introducing a new endpoint which will behave as expected and will serve the same purpose under a new URI and with a correct implementation of pagination parameters. This endpoint was incorrectly implemented and placed when it was first introduced.
Starting December 1, 2018, the old endpoint and our API will no longer support requests to this URI. If you don't use this endpoint of the API, please disregard this update.
If you use this endpoint to query Customer Profiles stored in Talon.One, we are asking to update the destination URL of the requests to the following endpoint:
https://example.talon.one/v1/customer_search/no_totalPlease read the Developer Documentation for the new endpoint here.

🗓 September 2018
Updated Delete Coupon Endpoint
We updated the Delete Coupon endpoint so you can query and delete codes using new parameters. This will make it easier for you to refine your query when you want to delete coupons in your account using the Management API. New parameters include:
Send more personalized and dynamic messages to customers by adding variables to the text field in the Set Notification Effect.
Dynamic Notifications With Variables
Now you can include variables like a customer's name, their current cart value or a coupon's expiry date. These are just a few examples, but you can be creative with your messaging depending on the data you send your Talon.One integration.
Learn more about implementing notifications in our developer documentation or read how to create a notification campaign here.
Formulas In Update A Custom Attribute EffectNow you will see "Update a custom attribute" in the effects drop-down (instead of "Update a value"). This is the same effect but with even more functionality within the rule builder.
Now you can enter formulas in the input field, in addition to values and variables. This is great if you want to update loyalty points, credits or subscriptions for example.
Learn more about the Update A Custom Attribute Effect.
New Attribute Suggestions
Now you can build rules faster by adding Attribute Suggestions for commonly used inputs. Instead of manually typing inputs, your marketing team can save time and avoid errors by selecting from predefined inputs when building Cart Filters and Conditions in the Rule Builder.
Read how to add Attribute Suggestions here.
More Flexibility In Effect "Create Coupon"
The functionality of the Create Coupon effect has been extended to include some great new features. Now you can define several parameters within the Rule Builder for the coupons that are automatically generated as an effect in your campaign.
Learn more about the new features available in the Create Coupon Effect here.
Create Coupons For Specific CustomersUse the coupon generator to create codes for a specific customer. In addition to Fixed Codes and Random Codes, you can also generate codes for a specific Integration ID.
Note: Only users with Admin rights have access to this feature.
Learn more about creating coupons for specific customers here.
New & Improved Campaign InsightsMonitor your campaign performance on the new and improved Insights page that also features an new Export button (formerly Analytics).

🗓 August 2018
Improved Coupon Export & Batch ID
When you generate coupon codes for a campaign, now you can easily export the code(s) right away. Learn more about exporting codes.
Coupon codes are always generated with a unique Batch ID that can be used to export this specific set of codes. Later, this Batch ID will appear in the coupon view alongside the other code information like start date and redemptions. A group of codes will have a single Batch ID, unlike the code ID that is unique per code.
Use this ID to search, organize or export your code(s). Save time managing codes if you need to create many codes at different times in a single campaign, now you can easily identify these codes and share with partners or internally.
Improved Per Item Discount Effect
Watch the quick video below to see how it works or learn more here.
Add Variables Button
For example, when you pick the effect "Set per item discount". Learn more about this effect or see an example here.
