Haulix Weekly Update #68 – “My Pudding Is Trapped Forever!”

Hello, internet friends! The end of the work week has arrived once more, and this time it is made extra special by the fact it is also the day many begin their long-awaited holiday breaks. The Haulix team will be working nearly every day ahead, but we’re thrilled those of you who put in long hours all year long are finally able to get some rest. If you work a job that offers no break at all, maybe this song from San Diego’s Sledding With Tigers will inspire a new year’s resolution or two:

Each and every Friday we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

We have development updates! We have development updates!

Just like Santa scurrying down your chimney, Haulix-claus is here with a special development update that impact clients and press alike. Clients have always been able to send multiple promos in a single email. If it’s a one-promo email and the contact clicks the link, it goes directly to the promo screen — no passcode required. From there, if they click on Promos, it prompts for the passcode. If it’s a multi-promo email and they click the main link on the bottom of the email, it USED TO prompt for the passcode. We updated the system so that it passes them through — no passcode. They go to a screen that has all of the promos from the email. They can then click the one they are interested in, thus streamlining the process for everyone involved.

On the blog end of things, we like to think the end of December has quickly become one of the most exciting times of the entire year. While many sites are slowing their content creation efforts, our team is working hard to bring you the best advice and most in-depth interviews available anywhere online. We’re not taking Christmas week off, and you can bet all the sass found online we’re not taking a break for the new year. We’re here for you, and as long as you’re ready be inform we’ll be ready to teach.

If you missed anything this week, here is a quick rundown of our recent content offerings:
