We're releasing a new feature - the Zapier plugin, currently in beta. This plugin lets you send new submission data to any app on Zapier. You can also use Webhook with this plugin for more integrations.
Currently, we're providing two triggers: 'New Submission' and 'Email Verification'. The first will activate when a new user signs up to your waitlist while the second will activate when an email address gets verified.
We are adding a new feature to block spam and malicious activity from signing up to your waitlist. This feature will block any email address that is associated with a domain on a list of over 3,000 blocked domains. This will help ensure that only legitimate emails are added to your waitlist.
Here is a more detailed explanation of how the feature works:
The feature will block any email address that is associated with a domain on a list of over 3,000 blocked domains. This list is maintained by LaunchList and is updated regularly to include new domains that are known to be used for spam or malicious activity. You can access the list at here.
When someone tries to sign up for your waitlist using an email address that is associated with a blocked domain, their request will be automatically rejected.
This feature will help to protect your waitlist from spam and other malicious activity, such as phishing attacks.
We hope this feature will help you keep your waitlist safe and secure.
We've introduced a new feature to help you better control the quality of form submissions on your waitlist.
Now, you can prevent spam, irrelevant leads, or low-quality entries by blocking them based on referral codes and keyword patterns. This way, you only get the most genuine submissions! 😎
How to block by referral code?
Go to your waitlist settings, locate the "Blocks" section, and...
Simply enter the referral code you want to block, separate them with commas, and save them! 🚀
How to block by keyword pattern?
What are keyword blocks?
A keyword block pattern is a method used in spam filtering to block emails that contain specific keywords or phrases. The pattern is designed to identify and prevent messages that include certain words or combinations of words that are often associated with spam, phishing, or other malicious content.
To block emails from any Gmail address that starts with "john", you can use the pattern firstname.lastname@example.org.
To block emails from any Yahoo address that ends with "support", you can use the pattern *[email protected].
Basically, the asterisk (*) represents any string of characters, so you can use it to match different parts of an email address. By combining different patterns with commas, you can create a list of email patterns that you want to block.
How to use it?
Simply go to your waitlist settings, find the "Blocks" section,
Input your list of keyword patterns (separated by commas) and save up! 🌟
Now your site's forms will automatically filter out any submissions from unwanted referral sources or with keywords matching your defined patterns. This update provides an additional layer of protection against spam and improves overall form submission quality.
We have launched a new feature: Email validation. This feature will help you ensure the authenticity and reliability of the emails on your waiting list, so you can be confident that your messages are reaching the right people.
Here are some of the benefits of the email validation feature:
It checks for syntax errors, so the emails on your waiting list are properly formatted and less likely to be rejected by the recipient's email server.
It checks for hard bounces, so you can avoid sending messages to non-existent or invalid email addresses.
It checks for risky domains, so you can avoid sending messages to domains that are often associated with spam or fraudulent activities.
It checks for disposable domains, so you can avoid sending messages to temporary or throwaway email addresses that may be used for spamming or other unwanted activities.
It checks for duplicates, so you can avoid sending multiple messages to the same email address.
It checks for spam traps, so you can avoid sending messages to email addresses that are specifically set up to catch spam.
It checks for business domains, so you can be sure that the emails on your waiting list are from legitimate business email addresses.
It checks for deliverability, so you can have a better idea of how likely your messages are to be successfully delivered to the recipient's inbox.
No one likes an empty waitlist. Now, easily modify the initial position from your waitlist settings. The new submission position will start from the below number. The number should be greater than the last submission position.
If you want to monitor conversions on your landing page, we have developed a tracking code that can be inserted into the <head> section. This code allows you to easily incorporate Google Analytics, Ads Conversion, LinkedIn ads, or any other tracking service onto your Thank You page.
To add the tracking code, simply access your waitlist settings page and locate the code in the Customize thank you page section. Paste the code and save your changes. Your tracking will then be implemented on the thank you page.
Webhook is the most requested feature on LaunchList. We have received a lot of messages to integrate the webhook to take user data when a user signs up. So, we pushed our earlier plan to add webhooks to the highest priority.
Webhook is now active on your waitlist. You can find the webhook settings on your waitlist page on the Plugins page.
Currently, you can use webhook to get notified when a new user signs up. In the future, we will add support to get notified when the user confirms their email and when the user's position changes.
Play around with Webhook and please share your feedback.
View user location, browser, device, platform, language, timezone, and more from your dashboard. Head over to your waitlist submissions page and click on the email address to view user details in the popup.
