    A Couple Big Product Udpates

    We've been quiet here in the Yext Forums because we've been putting together some product updates for Partners.

    The two big changes are these: we added scheduled content options for certain fields, and we built out a digital asset management tool.

    Scheduled Content

    Partners can now schedule certain content (special open/close hours, Featured Message specific to a time period, etc) to coincide with their seasonal promotions. This way, instead of having to manually change certain fields in the Yext Dashboard on a day-by-day basis, Partners can schedule ahead of time and focus on other aspects of a holiday/seasonal campaign.

    In addition to certain fields, Partners can also schedule posts to connected social networks.

    Digital Asset Management

    For Partners who manage clients within specific verticals, the Digital Asset Management (DAM, for short) will be extraordinarily useful. This is a feature that has existed in the Yext software already, but it didn't have a user interface Partners could access. That's been changed!

    Now, if you're a Partner who uses certain imagery or wording across multiple locations, you can apply that information across multiple locations en masse using the DAM. You can also tag, file, and sort digital assets for easy-rediscovery later. For example, if your location runs an annual sale, you can reuse the Featured Message and image assets at those times. Certain assets can also be scheduled.

    Holiday Tips and Seasonal Tricks

    Both of these features are intended to improve how Partners manage seasonality for their clients. We've also prepped some tips about how to capture holiday interest for clients!

    You guys have been busy helping with more tools to help your Partners which I'm sure will be appreciated before the Holidays!

    Thanks, Linda! Certainly we hope so, haha.

    I'm totally biased, since I wrote the posts, but I think these tools are pretty great. I'm excited to see how Partners use them!
