Campaign template updates

Released: 12/18/2022

Campaign managers can view a tentative timeline for each activity within a campaign to plan their campaigns effectively.

The Activities tab of a campaign template shows the duration of each activity (such at 230 days duration), and when each activity starts with respect to the campaign's creation date (such as starts in 28 days).

See Manage campaign templates.

UX Delights

To make your day-to-day ever easier, the following UX-minded updates were inspired by customer feedback. 


  • Global Search on text fields – Match search results to text fields in addition to searching object titles and article bodies, making it easier to find what you need. Archived objects will now be removed from the Global Search to clear the way for the most relevant results, but you can still find them within the Plan and/or Requests modules
  • All-day events on the calendar –  Create an all-day event in addition to our recently-released intra-day events. All-day events will show on the same calendar day across all time zones, while intra-day events are time zone specific
  • Work request delete & archive –  Archive (and un-archive) work requests! Like archived Tasks or Campaigns, archived Requests will not be shown in the list view by default, but can be included via filtering

Add Content dropdown

Released: 12/18/2022

Create content more quickly than before.


Search for any available content that can be created and see the results directly within the dropdown. Access more options without scrolling endlessly. Find and select new types of content when they become available.

Campaign milestones

Released: Private Beta, 12/18/2022

Track progress against key project milestones.


Use campaign milestones to more clearly see how a project is progressing and drive greater collaboration around important plan phases. 

Group related tasks together and map them to phases—called “milestones”—within a project. As a milestone date shifts, the associated tasks can shift too, saving a lot of work about work.
