What is new in GetResponse? Watch video

GetResponse has a new look. We’ve improved the design and structure of the control panel. Here are the main changes you can expect to see:

  • New design that makes it possible to complete tasks faster. Features and functions are easy to spot, identify, and use.
  • New structure designed to improve navigation. You can now add widgets to the Dashboard. Use them to select what statistics you’d like to track there. The main navigation bar on top of the Dashboard page is now organized into new features and categories. The new organization eliminates the need to click back and forth to complete tasks.
  • A new featureCRM—to create pipelines that help you match your sales process.
  • New solutions that simplify and streamline the steps that you need to take to complete your tasks.

 

What happened to “campaigns”, “subscribers”, and “saved searches”?

Besides introducing the design, structural, and functional changes, we’ve also replaced the terms “subscribers”, “campaigns”, and “saved searches”:

  • Subscribers are now contacts
  • Campaigns are now contact lists
  • Saved searches are now custom filters

The change doesn’t affect the way these elements are used.

 

How has the organization and structure changed?

When you first log into your account in the redesigned GetResponse, you’re going to see the new Dashboard. By default, it shows six widgets: Subscriptions, Newsletter stats, List stats, Quick actions, Workflow stats, and Explore new GetResponse. You can add more widgets from the Widget library to further customize your dashboard to display the information most relevant to your marketing needs. To learn more about how to add and set up widgets, please go to How can I customize my Dashboard with widgets.

Click the Profile icon in the top right corner to navigate to Manage account, where you can edit your account details. From Profile, you can also access Multimedia studio, manage Domains, view Billing, or get to the Integrations & API page. Note: Currently, it’s not possible to access Multiuser settings and Add-ons from the new GetResponse.

The top navigation bar takes you to GetResponse features:

  • Contacts
  • Email marketing
  • Automation
  • Landing pages
  • Webinars
  • Forms and surveys
  • CRM

Where can I find the Actions menu?

The Actions menu, which used to be next to items you wanted to modify, has been redesigned and repositioned.

Previously, the menu appeared when you hovered the mouse pointer over an item. It said “Actions” and included a gear icon.

In the redesigned GetResponse accounts, Actions menu can be found at the far right of each row. It’s represented by an Actions icon—a vertical ellipsis.

Simply hover the mouse pointer over the icon to expand the list of available actions.
