The Beginning of the New LuxSci Interface

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

LuxSci is in the process of re-imagining and re-inventing the major components of its web-based user interface …. from the ground up.  We are taking some of the most important feature requests from our customers, together with the newest technologies that have matured over the past few years, and re-designing these major components to be simpler, faster, modern, and slick.

Schedule Your Email Filters to Work Best for You

Friday, May 9th, 2014

Email FilterWould you like to be able to schedule an auto-response to be sent out not only based on criteria such as recipient email address, but also based on what day of the week and the time?  Perhaps you would like a message to fire off only when you are “off shift”. Or, perhaps certain types of messages should be forwarded to a colleague when you are “off shift”.

LuxSci has introduced day of the week and time scheduling into its powerful custom email filtering system.

Custom email filters enable you to match messages with razor precision to perform a wide range of actions on matching messages — e.g. forwarding, deleting, tagging, auto-responding, and much more.

The new scheduling option allows you to configure each filter to be used

  1. Only during a specified time range on selected days of the week.  E.g. 9am – 5pm Eastern time on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
  2. Anytime except  during a specified time range on selected days of the week.  E.g. I work am – 5pm Eastern time on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so have the filter be used on all other days and times.

The Filter Scheduling option can be configured in the “Additional Settings” area when you are creating or editing a custom filter in the LuxSci interface.

Import CSV files into your MySQL database tables

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

LuxSci’s MySQL database hosting console now enables you to import data into MySQL database tables directly from a CSV (Comma Separated Variables) file, e.g. a simple and universal form that spreadsheets can be saved or exported to.

Why would you want to import data from CSV?  Well, you could do the same thing by writing SQL code and importing this to your database or by connecting remotely to your database and issuing commands.  But both of those methods take some time and expertise to set up.  If you have a spreadsheet of data or a CSV of data created from some other system (e.g. customer information, contact lists, inventories, etc.), you can simply upload this file and populate your database with its new contents in a matter of seconds.

Give your PDF Form users a Personalized Success Page

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Fillable PDF forms are nice, but one down side is that the only thing that you can give the end users after s/he clicks on the submit button is a static PDF file (i.e. “Thank you for your submission…”).

LuxSci SecureForm service now enables you to dynamically personalize this success PDF.

  1. Make the Success PDF also a PDF form with some or all of the same fields that your original PDF form has
  2. SecureForm can fill in these form fields in the Success PDF with the user submitted data.
  3. The resulting form is then given back to the user (flattened or not … up to you)

Dynamic Success PDFs make it a snap to have personalized success pages or to give the user back a copy of the submitted PDF.  You could also have a copy of the submitted data emailed to the end user.

Archive All Sent Marketing Email with the LuxSci High Volume Service

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Long available with LuxSci’s standard email services, users of LuxSci’s High Volume Bulk Outbound Email service can also have copies of all sent messages automatically BCC’ed to an email address of their choice (at any service provider to whom receipt of these messages is acceptable).

Collection of copies of all sent email messages is crucial for anyone who needs to have all sent email archived for backup, auditing, or compliance reasons.  If you are sending bulk email, transactional email, or marketing email in a healthcare context, HIPAA may apply and your messages all need to be archived.  The mass emailing must also be done in a HIPAA-compliant manner, such as using the LuxSci Premium High Volume sending services.

In particular, these changes impact the “tree” of menu options available for users to configure their own settings and for administrators to manage their users.

(This change is scheduled to be released live during the evening of October 30th, Eastern Time, USA).
