Haulix Weekly Update #19 – Managing Promo Feedback

Hello and welcome to the final update of the week here on the official blog of Haulix. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Our team spent the last few days scattered across the country with family and friends, but we also dedicated a good amount of time to keeping things moving at HQ. In this post we’ll take a look back at everything we’ve done and give you a few hints at what lies ahead in January 2014.

Starting with the product end of things, the arrival of Santa did not stop our team for rolling out a new update to our promotional distribution system. Press contacts have long been encouraged to leave feedback on the promos they are sent and thanks to our latest update managing those messages is now easier than ever before. When clients log in to view promo feedback they can identify which comments they have already read by selecting the checkbox next to the corresponding messages. Checked messages will then appear crossed out, but will not be removed. You can view an example of this below:

***Promo feedback can only be viewed the respective Haulix client. Press contacts cannot see each other’s feedback.***

Santa may not have had an impact on our dev team, but he did make an impression on the blog. In addition to releasing two new Blogger Spotlights, as well as a timely Advice column, we issued our very first (and very brief) holiday message to readers. You can find links to every post this week below:

Looking ahead to next week there is plenty we hope to accomplish before ringing in the new year. For starters, we have two additional label spotlight we plan to run, as well as the second installment of our new artist spotlight series. Who knows, we may even find time to squeeze some additional advice. Be sure to follow Haulix on Twitter and Facebook to ensure you never miss another update.

That’s all for this week. Have a fun and safe weekend. We’ll see you on Monday.
