Follow this article to receive email notifications when new Optimizely Content Marketing Platform (CMP) content is added for 2024.


Sort by various fields in the list view

In addition to the fields with which you could sort content in Plan > List, you can now sort by the Status field and your custom fields. You can also sort the content with multiple fields simultaneously by pressing Shift and clicking the fields you want to sort by. See List view planning for more information.

Saved views are now in Library

Saved views let you search for and find the items you regularly need. Save your frequently used filter combinations and searches in the library by giving it a name. You can share this saved view among your team members, edit it and duplicate it. See Library overview for more information. 

Upgraded AI image generation

DALL-E is the new AI model that generates images in CMP. You can use shorter prompts to get higher-quality image outputs. With each generation, you can pick from four sample images or click Re-generate. See Generate AI images to learn more.


Set asset expiry date from a task

You can set the Asset Expiry Date when you upload an asset to a task. When you complete a task or step, it pushes the asset to the library and retains the expiry date that you set in the task. See Expire assets.

View library assets in Category view

You can select Category view to display assets in library. The Category view separates assets into Folders and categories such as Images, Videos, Articles, Documents, and Files. You can select a folder to access the assets inside. See Library overview

Integrate your AI

In addition to Opal, which is the Optimizely AI assistant powered by open AI, you can integrate an AI model with Content Marketing Platform (CMP). See Integrate your AI

Edit campaign templates 

After you save a campaign as a template, you can make changes to the campaign template and make a copy of it. See Manage campaign templates.

Add fields to a workflow step

You can add fields to individual steps in a workflow. 


Remote fields

You can develop your applications and include them within the omnichannel editor. For example, implement a color picker field or load a list of fields from another platform, such as their CRM. See Remote fields and extensions in Edit content with omnichannel authoring.

Delete users

You can remove a user, but the activities and comments remain on the platform with the label (deleted) next to their name, such as "Jane Smith (deleted)."

Additionally, deleted users are accessible as a filter option in the Plan module's filter panel, making locating activities assigned to or owned by deleted users easy.

Recycle bin

Admins can restore deleted tasks or task content, such as an article, image, raw file, URL, or Microsoft asset, from the recycle bin. See Restore deleted tasks and task content from the recycle bin in Manage tasks.


WordPress integration revamp

The revamped WordPress integration uses APIs for enhanced security and performance and supports standard and custom post types.

UX delights

  • Opal – You can access Optimizely's ChatGPT AI assistant powered by Open AI through the top navigation menu.
  • Field inheritance – You can control if the content uploaded to a task inherits the same fields as the task it is a part of with the Inherit field changes from the task checkbox. See Field inheritance in Content workspace.
  • Saved view permissions – You can select Can Edit and Can View permissions when you share saved views with users, teams, or organizations. See Saved filter views.


Asset fields

Create custom asset fields in the library and tasks in the Digital Asset Manager (DAM) to help search and organize your results. See Organize assets in Library overview.


Access artificial intelligence (AI) assistant Opal from the main navigation menu

Use Opal to answer questions about marketing plans, tasks, campaigns, and more. Your conversations are organized according to your location on the platform when you ask Opal your questions. For example, you can reopen a task to access the Opal conversation history from when you worked on that task. See Global header.


Auto-complete Work Requests 

When you start a task from a work request and then complete it, the corresponding work request gets automatically marked as completed, and the requestor receives a notification. See Work requests.

Select assets to push to the library before task completion

Push assets to the library after completing a workflow step. Determine this in workflow settings. See Manage workflows. You can also toggle on Save to Library for a workflow step from within a task. See Content workspace.
