πŸ’‘ The best practice in sending broadcasts is by using tags.
Tag is a short title of a receiver (user), like male, age20-30, cold_lead, hot_lead, etc. So by marking your users, you make your message destination the most accurate, prevent spamming and improve marketing efficiency.
❓To reach out to your target audience:
πŸ‘‰ Apply tags for users in the scenario by using addTag action.
πŸ‘‰ Setup a new broadcast in the Broadcasts sheet, set a date and input comma separated tags in the tags field. More in the docs and video.

⭐️ The validation rules are live! They are designed to validate user input with ask block.
Available rules: number, numeric, digits, url, email, phone, image, file, video, audio, location, confirm, min:10, max:2, non-free-input, free-input, size, /<regexp>/
Also it's possible to combine them. E.g. if you need to validate zip code which consists of 5 digits, just put validate:digits|size:5 into a proper ask block.
Release notes and a new example.
⭐️ Data Sanitization. With a new output field for an ask block, it is possible to clear inserted data from unneeded symbols and phrases.
For instance, if we need to store a phone number and users type in (555) 555-1234, we can save it now like this 5555551234. More about the new feature in the version v3.0.3
