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

* 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.
Get agile with click to edit
Editing your email content is more intuitive with our added click to edit functionality. Now clicking on elements within a block will automatically focus on the rich text editor in the left bar, allowing you to quickly and easily update your content without having to scroll the left pane to locate the text box. This is especially useful in multi column blocks with multiple dys elements within them.

If you’re like us and you create a lot of emails, you’ve probably noticed that it can be time consuming to set the metadata on a per email basis. Well, now you’re in luck! Dyspatch admins can set global metadata specific to each ESP integration that will apply to every email created and exported by Dyspatch.
