Haulix Weekly Update #75 – “Inflammable means flammable? What a country!”

Hey there, everyone. Welcome to our blog. If you’re reading this post the day it goes live then you are no doubt aware of the fact Valentine’s Day weekend is only a few short hours away. We don’t know if you will be with someone special tomorrow, but regardless you should set a little time aside to tell those who mean something you that they are indeed special. We don’t really have a soundtrack for such an occasion, but this song has been on repeat around our offices this week:

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 know the beginning of the new year was slow for updates, but after receiving responses to our 2015 client survey we quickly developed a list of goals our development team has been diligently working to reach. Today we’re thrilled to unveil ‘Public Promo Groups.’ Here’s how it works:

Promo groups are containers used for organizing your promos on various screens that you and your coworkers view.

Every one of your contacts has a “My Promos” screen where Haulix compiles all promos from all senders who sent an invitation to that contact.

You can now control how your promos are organized on that screen by making one or more of your promo groups “public.”

From your Promos screen, click on the Groups button. ¬†Checking the Public checkbox will make the respective group appear on your contacts’ My Promos screens.

This feature is only a visual enhancement. All permissions that you previously established work the same way.

The promo order you establish in the group (drag n’ drop) on your Promos screen will get mirrored on the contact’s My Promos screen.

As for the blog, things have been typically busy. We were supposed to run a special Inside Music this week with Stick To Your Guns, but unfortunately those plans had to be scrapped at the last minute. We plan to make it up, but right now we don’t know when that will be.

Failed attempts at bonus content aside, we’re incredibly proud of the week we’ve had. Please take a moment and catch up on all our latest content offerings:
