Figma Live Embed for Dyspatch
We are excited to announce a powerful new integration for designers and developers who use Dyspatch: Figma live embed. This feature transforms your email design workflow, fostering real-time collaboration and streamlining processes for swift email production and seamless collaboration.
With the Figma integration in Dyspatch, your team will be empowered to create, iterate, and finalize email designs in real-time within the Dyspatch email production platform. Coupled with our Dyspatch email builder design system community files, your email production time will be vastly reduced, as you’ll eliminate the need for time-consuming back-and-forth communication between teams.
Your design team will find reassurance in knowing that once they hand over their email designs, developers will be implementing the latest iterations of their mockups when building, testing, and localizing emails. Ensure Dyspatch themes and blocks stay in sync with your Figma design files; link to a specific Figma document, frame, or component.
The Dyspatch Figma live embed feature will also translate into a significant boost in speed for email developers. By eliminating the need to juggle multiple windows or tabs during the email creation process, developers can now implement email designs with ease and minimal context switching between Figma and Dyspatch – all visual components will be in right where you need them, in Dyspatch.
This integration between Figma and Dyspatch is available to all teams in Dyspatch starting in January 2024. Contact us to see the magic!

Consolidate your Project briefs & frequently used links in our Email Builder
Project management professionals, and email content managers alike will now find even more useful functionality built into the Dyspatch email builder with the addition of project links that can be added and maintained on a per email basis. Add and manage your Asana, Dropbox, Figma, Slack, Jira, Google Drive, and Office 365 links all in one place, to save your team from having to dig up their frequently used files as they build their emails with Dyspatch.
Update to latest block version from the visual editor
Until now, bulk updating a change to a block is an all or nothing change in Dyspatch. But you might want to see how a block will update in an individual email, or sometimes want to update a draft without potentially interfering with in-progress work.
Using Dyspatch’s updated block refreshing functionality, you can now easily update your email blocks to the latest saved version, without having to use bulk apply, or having to re-drag the block into your email to see the latest design updates.
What else is new? Mini updates
- Bulk apply now supports select/deselect all for drafts, allowing users to manually opt out specific emails from bulk apply
- The Email Builder now includes a list of blocks being used by the template, allowing you to easily identify and edit the blocks currently used in your emails. Helper icons indicate which blocks have conditional display logic or are hidden/lacking content, allowing you to easily identify dynamic content in your emails
- Editable Fields can now be reset to the default value at the block level, reverting any design changes you’ve made to your email blocks

Sharing an email with stakeholders before sending is a key step in every email team’s workflow. Dyspatch has many options to ensure you get feedback and signoff from the right people at the right stage in the email creation process, from locking a template once it’s ready for review to sending a test email to anyone in your organization.
We’ve recently added a new option to get feedback from the right person at the right time: A shareable URL to the template for anyone who is in your email creation process, even if they aren’t in Dyspatch.
We’ve also included a few clever options with this shareable link, including:
- Keeping the link private to Dyspatch users, or making it public to any guest user with the link
- There is an expiry on the link, so that it is no longer available after 48 hours
- And an option to override the expiry date to deactivate the shareable link
And the best part? Guest users can leave comments, view metadata, and view drafts with localizations. Their feedback is essential and it’ll be a cinch for them to review your email.
Creating a shared link is available to Dyspatch users in the Dyspatch Email Builder today!
Organizations on the Team+ plan will rejoice in hearing about our new optional multi-step approvals. With multi-step approvals enabled, emails will now have a design approval stage that has to be approved before the emails can be exported for localization. These added workflow enhancements will ensure that emails are pre-vetted before entering the localization process, so that you’ll save time and money if an email needs to be updated or adjusted after being localized.
With localization toggles, you can select which attributes are included in the localization process when your emails are being translated. Both image source, and link URLs can be disabled, simplifying the localization process. This feature also potentially reduces costs when using one of our built-in localization integrations with Smartling, XTM, Phrase, or Crowdin.
Brevo (formerly Sendinblue) ESP integration
Sendinblue is now Brevo – So say “Hello” to our new Brevo integration! Easily sync your Dyspatch emails to your Brevo account; send with confidence knowing that your emails are on brand, up to date, and free from errors.
UTM link builder
Set a unique UTM tracking code at the email level in Dyspatch. The link parameter will automatically apply to all link URLs in the email. Easily set your campaign, medium, and source content all at once, and check out the final format with our built-in example preview.
* Don’t want UTMs on your unsubscribe links? No problem – you can opt-out specific links by applying the data-no-utm attribute to the text in the core block.
New! XTM International integration – Localizations at scale
XTM International is a trusted name among global brands, and now, Dyspatch brings you the convenience of directly syncing your emails with your XTM account projects for seamless translation.
Dyspatch supports two levels of localization for your templates — Template Localization, for editable content that will change from template to template (like your text content), and Block Localization, for content that will be consistent between templates (like headers and footers). Once your XTM integration has been set up, you will be able to sync both your template and block localizations to XTM.

Bulk Actions, for when you want to make sweeping changes
With our new multiselect capability you can now effortlessly perform bulk operations such as duplicating, deleting, and updating themes at the workspace level. Designed with both marketers and agencies in mind, this update is especially useful for creating new email campaigns or drip sequences, as it enables you to duplicate and modify your existing emails in Dyspatch with ease.
The block builders on your team will be excited to note that we’ve made some changes to the structure of blocks that will make them quicker and easier to organize. Firstly, we’ve added block folders, providing a seamless way to organize and locate blocks while creating emails in Dyspatch. Say goodbye to the hassle of searching for specific blocks; now you can easily categorize and find them within a structured folder system and see those changes carry over to the Dyspatch email builder.
But that’s not all. We’ve also introduced support for block level exports, offering you even more flexibility. If you prefer to keep your header and footer stored in your ESP rather than adding them to every email template, this feature allows you to manually export these blocks so they can be imported to your ESP or CRM. By doing so, you can omit them from future templates, ensuring that your header and footer always remain on-brand and ready to be sent.
With Email Guardrails, Dyspatch will tell you about mistakes you’ve made or opportunities you’ve forgotten about, before you even start testing your email. While you’re still in email creation mode, we’ll show you how to avoid having a message clipped in Gmail, remind you to add alt text to your images, hint at options to make your subject line and preheader perform better, and even help you with your localizations. And that is just the beginning.
Email Guardrails is your co-pilot in email creation. This comprehensive scanner will automatically report on formatting issues, ranging from:
- Broken links
- Badly sized images
- Incorrect syntax and personalization errors
- Accessibility issues
- And more!
Personalization and testing just got better in Dyspatch. With Data Profiles you can create account level profiles for specific personas or customer cohorts you cater towards in your email marketing campaigns. Ensure that your emails are accurate, and people are seeing the right dynamic data every time.
With the visual profile builder, you can easily create Data Profiles without having to worry about code formatting and syntax. Simply choose the type of data you will be setting, and add your data. For advanced users, or if you’re migrating your profiles from an external source, you can switch to the JSON input and just type or paste away.
Once your chosen profiles are set in the Dyspatch admin dashboard, they’re simple to toggle on and off while creating email campaigns using the Dyspatch Email Builder. With Data Profiles, you can easily preview what dynamic blocks and information your paid customers receive. Then with a click you can see how that email would look to a free trial, or unengaged account. It’s that easy.
When downloading PDF proofs of your Dyspatch email, you’ll now have the option to select multiple localized versions of your email for download. Making it easier than ever to integrate Dyspatch into your email approval workflow.
