November 2021 - Crisp Product Update
Looking to see what's new this month at Crisp? Here are the latest releases we've brought to the platform. Enjoy!
- Forwarding emails to your Crisp inbox is now possible
Many customers told us that when they receive customer support requests to their personal mailbox (eg. email@example.com). Executives and sales all experienced this situation, with customers asking for invoices or how to solve a specific problem.
Well, we can proudly say that it has been managed. You can now transfer those emails to your Crisp Inbox (ie firstname.lastname@example.org). Crisp will then process those emails accordingly and consider the email as submitted directly from the customer. You can even add a message to your transferred email, and it will be attached as a private note.
⚠️To avoid fraud, transferring to Crisp Inbox is only possible if you are a Crisp agent.
- HTML emails are now supported in the inbox 📥
We felt like our email parser was a bit rude with all the gorgeous HTML emails you receive every day in your inbox. That's why we decided to tackle the problem by offering a better display for all the HTML emails out there

- Few other improvements on emails
We told you, we have been working hard on emails over the past weeks. Among these improvements, we have improved the chat transcript preview in order to improve open rates, we worked on better handling legacy mailing systems (👋🏼 outlook), and made our emails look clean in the Outlook suite.

There's a new widget in town! When viewing a conversation, you now have access to the events of the contact. Simply have a look at the "Profile Events" widget located in the right sidebar.

- Automatically set up your custom domain (available for emails, helpdesk, status)
A few months ago, we dreamt about a tool that could help us resolve one of the biggest pain our customers had when setting up Crisp. This dream has come true thanks to https://goentri.com/, which offers a tool to configure DNS in seconds. Entri is now embedded in the Crisp app, in order to help you set up your Email, Helpdesk, or Status Page custom domain.
- Invoices are now generated as PDFs 🧾
We transitioned from HTML-based invoices to PDF invoices. It means that it's now possible to automate the forwarding of our PDF invoices to accounting software by defining the accountant email.

- Making Crisp, even more, faster all around the world 🐢
An improvement has been deployed on the Crisp app, which makes it perceptibly 2x faster in regions like South America, Asia, Oceania, and the likes (the impact is greater the further away the user is from the Netherlands where our servers are located).
Bug fixes & improvements 💪🏼
