Revulytics is pleased to announce that the new ReachOut In-Application messaging workflow is now available. This update simplifies the management of ReachOut campaigns so you can easily distinguish between automatic and manual campaigns, and introduces the new ReachOut Variables and additional filtering capabilities.
ReachOut In-App messaging is a powerful marketing tool that allows you to interact with your users while they are engaged with your application. By using ReachOut you can take advantage of the analytics data that you collect from your clients to create personalized campaigns and target your audience based on product,
In manual ReachOut
When you create an automatic ReachOut campaign, a popup window is shown to your users when they run your application or when the application syncs with the Revulytics server. You can display a web page of your choice, or else upload your own image and provide us with a URL to deliver a linkable image to your user. You can also choose the size of the window that will be displayed and the position on the screen. Displaying your message to the user is completely handled by the Usage Intelligence SDK, so no code changes are required in your application! This is great for delivering company and product news, whitepapers or asking your users to participate in surveys. This method of delivery is currently supported in our Windows and Mac Usage Intelligence SDKs. For the Linux SDK, a ReachOut handler must be specified to display automatic ReachOut campaigns. More information can be found in the documentation.

With the introduction of ReachOut Variables, you can now deliver dynamic content to your users based on product or environment properties and product usage. Variables can be used in manual campaigns as part of the plain text message or URL, and in automatic campaigns as part of the URL that will be displayed to the user, or if an image is used as part of the target URL when the image is clicked.
The possibilities of what you can achieve with ReachOut Variables is limited only by your creativity, but here are some basic examples where dynamic content can be useful:
A complete list of available ReachOut Variables can be found in this Helpdesk article.
If you make use of custom properties of any type, you can now target your ReachOut campaign recipients based on these properties as well. Whether you’re creating a new campaign or editing an old one, you can find the custom properties in the Recipient Profile Filter section. Start typing the property name or scroll to Custom Properties to view your custom properties. In the screenshot below you can see an example for a custom property that has been named “Reseller”.
Once you select the values that you would like to include, it will be added as a filter just like the rest of the product and environment properties. Any user which has registered a value for the custom property which matches with your filter will receive the message
You can find more information on custom properties in this Helpdesk article.
ReachOut now gives you the ability to target your users based on how many times they generated an event. This allows you to create highly targeted campaigns which ensure that your customers are getting the most of your product as well as providing you with opportunities to upsell your product.
For example, let’s say that from your analytics data you have discovered that a lot of your users never use a particular feature and you would like to promote this feature with such users. You can now easily create a campaign to specifically target users which never logged any of the events related to that feature, or which have logged the events less than X amount of times. To make your campaign more meaningful, you can combine this filter with other product usage filters and make sure that your application has been installed for a specified number of days before they receive the message, or even that they ran the application for a specific amount of times or minutes.
Adding an event usage filter works just like adding any other filter:
Event usage filters apply for the entire lifetime of a user since the first day they installed your software and can be combined with other usage properties to create more specific campaigns, like combining an event filter with the days since installation. You can find more information about the rest of the product usage filters in this Helpdesk article.
