Haulix Weekly Update #74 – “I Glued My Head To My Shoulder.”

Can you feel it in the air? The weekend is fast-approaching, or at least it was when we first sat down to write this, and in no time at all we will feel the freedom that comes with sleeping in on Saturday morning. Before we get there however, there are a few things we need to discuss. First and foremost, have you heard of the band Capsize?

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.


Haulix promos have traditionally had a scoring mechanism and feedback box up top in the upper right corner. When a press contact submits a score or a review link, customers can privately view that information in their Haulix dashboard.

We now give you the ability to enable or disable that feedback on a per promo basis.

Promo feedback can easily be turned on or off when editing the promo. Your changes are instant; no need to re-send email invitations.

If enabled, the promo view will show a “Submit Feedback” link. When clicked, it will open a window where the contact can submit a score, comment or review link. The mobile view will hide or show the feedback interface as well based on the promo’s settings.

If you have any questions, please contact us at support@haulix.zendesk.com.

As far as the blog is concerned, our content production efforts hit an all-time high in recent days. We’ve run more articles this week than in any prior seven-day period and it is our hope that you enjoyed the changed. We want to continue sharing more and more content, but only if we feel such material can be created without jeopardizing the high standard of quality we expect with each post. 

In case you missed anything in recent days, here’s a quick rundown of all our recent posts:
