Automation Component Added 

Automations have continued to expand in functionality and play a valuable role in communications and interactions with members. When automations are configured in your portal, they can be used to send emails and SMS messages, book appointments, gather information and feedback, as examples. With this release, you can add an automation component to a flow that will trigger when the member reaches it. 

Insert Template Snippet Added

With this release, you can insert a template snippet into a flow you’re building, allowing you to build context around the template. When a template snippet is inserted, it populates the flow-builder in its complete form, with each component editable and movable.  

You can find the insert template interaction at the top of the components panel:
