We will be releasing this feature with a patch outside of our normal release schedule and I want to explain how it will work. The items will be applied to our production code tonight (10/13) and will be available for activation starting tomorrow. It will not be turned on automatically for all customers. We will, however, enable the feature on an ad-hoc basis for those that are interested. If you would like this feature enabled, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me the Munchkin ID of your subscription.
While this functionality has been thoroughly tested, we won't be enabling this for all customers for 1-2 months. It is a large change and it is important that you understand (and communicate to your team) the behavior before choosing to enable this.
With this feature enabled, you will see the following behavior:
Again, please reach out directly if you'd like this enabled starting tomorrow (10/14) for your subscription. We will roll this out to all customers shortly after.
This is now in our production environment!
I've only received two requests so far to enable the feature. Please don't be shy! Let me know if you want this enabled in your subscription and make sure you tell your team about the behavior change (noted above).
I just finished testing... AND IT WORKS!!!! Thanks so much, Justin Cooperman ! BTW, it's not just the DOCTYPE that caused the issues, but Marketo was also stripping the xmlns definitions within the <HTML> tag, just after the DOCTYPE. These critical three lines of code are now also being preserved.
I would like to enable this feature, but I have to check with my team first. Just to be clear, these changes will not affect emails that have already been created, is that right? I just want to make sure we don't have to verify that old emails still look good after enabling these new features.
It won't do anything to existing emails. But, if you look at my comments above, if you have an existing email template that has things like a custom DOCTYPE then all of a sudden when you create new emails from that template, that will persist.
If you update a template, all e-mails using that template which were approved will continue to use the previous version of that template until you approve the new drafts of each of those e-mails, right? Just want to confirm.
Hi Justin -
I've been out of office and came back to this - it's great news! I'll discuss with my team to make sure no one is inconvenienced, then I'll reach out for this to be enabled. You're amazing! Thanks!
