Price updates

We introduce three new subscription plans. If you are currently subscribed to our old Tabular Pro plan, your subscription will remain unchanged.

New and improved plans

  • We introduce Lifetime Plus for when you want to just create a small set of email templates, and only occasionally need to edit them. Lifetime Plus includes 1 organization member, unlimited organization guests, 30 stored emails, and 30 exports per month.
  • New Pro plan now includes 3 organization members, unlimited emails, exports, teamspaces, organization guests, and a 250 GB CDN quota.
  • We introduce an Organization plan specifically created with marketing agencies and large organizations in mind. Next to what Pro offers, the organization plan includes 5 organization members, and the ability to create secret teamspaces. For example if you have 3 clients, secret teamspaces are useful for if you don't want your client A to be able to view teamspaces you created for client B and C.

Increased CDN quotas

We have significantly increased the CDN quotas on all plans, including our free plan:

  • Free plan: was 2 GB, becomes 20 GB
  • Old Pro plan: was 20 GB becomes 250 GB

Create unlimited teamspaces within one organization

You can now create unlimited teamspaces within one organization to better organize your work. For example, create separate teamspaces for each client, campaign or project you're creating emails for.

Per teamspace you can manage which of your organization members or guests have access to view or edit emails. In addition, you can set Teamspaces to be closed or open to be joined by other Organization members. Next to that, if you're on the Organization plan, you can set Teamspaces to be secret. Secret teamspaces are hidden from other organization members by default and only visible for organization members that are already member of that teamspace.

You can now invite others to join your organization as an Admin, Member, or Guest. In order to showcase your emails to colleagues or clients you can add unlimited organization Guests for free. The number of organization Admins or Members you can add depends on your subscription plan.

Organization roles

  • Organization Admins: can manage Organization Settings, billing information, create new teamspaces, invite new organization members, and can be added as Teamspace Admins, Editors, and Viewers.
  • Organization Members: can create new teamspaces, and can be added as Teamspace Admins, Editors, and Viewers.
  • Organization Guests: can only be added to Teamspaces as Viewers.

We automatically added an Organization to each of your Teams in Tabular. Your Team members also became members or guests in your Organization.

Teamspace roles

Previously, you were able to invite others to join your team via an email invite. Now, in order to add members to your teamspace, they have to first become members of your Organization. You can add people from your organization as admin, member, or guest to your teamspaces. Organization Guests can only be added as Teamspace Viewers.

Dynamic content and email variables

You can now more easily manage email variables and dynamic content in your emails. Mark variables in your text and specify example display values for a realistic view of your email while designing.

We've made several improvements that make it easier for you to manage email variables and dynamic content in your email templates.

Mark text as email variables

Email variables are placeholders within an email that will be automatically replaced with values you provide when you send the email. For example, you can define variables for parts of the message that are specific to each individual with personal information, such as the recipient's name.

You can now select your placeholder and mark it as a 'variable'.

Marked variables are visually distinct from normal text so it makes it easier to recognize and manage variables in your email.

You can specify an example display value for your variable that will be shown in the editor instead of the variable. This gives you a realistic view, while designing, what the email will look like when the variables are replaced with real values.

This is a first step towards creating a system that allows you to easily use and re-use personalization variables that work with your email service provider.

Make email blocks optional or repeatable

Instead of sending a generic, one-size-fits-all email, dynamic content allows you to tailor specific parts of the email to individual recipients, creating a more personalized and relevant experience.

Show or hide blocks for specific recipients

If your email service provider provides conditional statement templating markup, you can choose to show certain parts of your email for some while hiding them for others.

In the email editor, select the condition option on the Dynamic content section of an email block that you wish to render conditionally. As you can see you will have to provide the opening (if) statement markup and closing (end-if) statement markup.

Automatically repeat blocks using loops

If your email service provider provides for-loop statement templating markup, you can choose to have certain parts of your email to be added more than once. For example, if you run an ecommerce store, you would want to use this in an order confirmation email. You can use for-loops to dynamically render a variable number of products a customer ordered.

In the email editor, select the repetition option on the Dynamic content section of an email block you wish to repeat. As you can see you will have to provide opening (for-loop) statement markup and closing (end for-loop) statement markup.
