What happens during a release?

There are two separate events in a typical product update:

  1. Up to one hour delay in processing:
    • List uploads
    • Email message sends
    • CRM syncs
    • Automated Program steps
  2. A one minute restart that makes certain services unavailable:
    • Logging in to the platform
    • Access to public landing pages and forms
    • Recording of form submissions

Delayed services (#1 above) will resume once the update is complete.

Services that are unavailable (#2 above) will be functional again in under a minute.

How can I prepare for updates?

Make sure to save any work that's in progress before the update begins. Also, please account for a very brief disruption to your Act-On programs, messages, and content during the window.

What about updates outside the normal schedule?

To keep customers' accounts running smoothly, we sometimes perform proactive, unscheduled updates. This is usually done to prevent system issues long before they actually happen. We will send out communications via email and/or inside the platform to make you aware of these events.

How can I get more information?
