Since the release of Sendible’s Analytics Dashboard last month, we have been overwhelmed with all the positive feedback and feature requests. We have taken your feedback on board and we’re excited to announce the launch of a few updates that make the Sendible Social Media Dashboard even more powerful. If you’re not currently a Sendible user, you can try our social media reporting dashboard by signing up for a free 30 day trial.
Here are a few of the recent feature updates:
Ability to share a live link to your “Report Builder” reports
Now, you can share a link with your clients so that they can access a live report from within their browser. The same link will show the most recent date based on the date range/period you select.
Ability to add subtitles to your reports
You can now add subheadings to your reports using the new “Section Title” module found in the module selection dialog under “General Reports”.
Ability to add your own text areas to reports
You can now add your own, editable text area/modules into reports. This allows you to enter your own text or HTML within the report. You can add this module under “General Reports” > “Section Title”.

One of Sendible’s most powerful features is the ability to have content created by certain users go through an internal approval process. When configuring your users, you have the ability to define exactly which users require approval from other users.
Sometimes, you may want to have your content updated by multiple users on your team before it gets published. This is can be configured with Sendible’s mult-user approval process.
Assume we have 3 users, User 1, User 2 and User 3 and that User 3 needs approval from User2 who needs approval from User1.
To setup a multi-user approval process, you can follow the steps below:
Now, when User 1 creates some content, it will be submitted to User 2 for approval.
User 2 will then be able to make edits and submit the content to User 1 for approval.
Over the past few months we have focused on improving our website performance and enhancing our user experience. We’ve recently moved to a new web hosting environment and have also added a new services page which can be used to import your Social Network and Email accounts.
This page allows you to add new services or update and resync your existing services. See below:
We’ve also made it possible for you to select the contacts you’d like to import:
Sendible is a messaging service that integrates with a variety of platforms and services including SMS, Email, Twitter and Facebook. Sendible is also great for backing up all your online contacts and accessing them from one central messaging platform.
We recently launched a great new feature on Sendible that makes updating your status across multiple social networks simultaneously and at a time you choose a snap!
In so doing, we’ve also extended the number of email, blogging and social network services that Sendible now works with:
- Bebo (status updates)
- Blogger (blog posts)
- Facebook (status updates, wall posts, private messages)
- Friendster (messages)
- Hi5 (messages)
- LinkedIn (status updates and messages)
- Myspace (messages)
- Plurk (updates)
- Pownce (updates)
- Twitter (updates)
Sendible is a simple service that makes it possible to access all your contacts from one place and send them messages (now, or scheduled for later) using Email, SMS or your Social Networks.

We’ll be adding more social network services all the time, so be sure to let us know which ones you’d like to see added next!
It’s simple. Just choose the date and time you want the message to be posted, and hit the create button. Sendible will take care of the rest. You can even write on multiple contacts’ walls at the same time – with one message!
Great for being the first to wish that special someone on their birthday!
