Automation Multi-Select


Summary

When creating Automations in LocalClarity, users can now select multiple users for a single automation.

Background

While the Automation engine allowed for many different triggers and sequences, users had to make a new automation for every user to be notified. This would lead to the user having to go through the workflow each time, leaving all of the settings the same, but changing the recipient each time. Now this can all be done at once.

Description

Notifying an entire team every time a trigger happens is now much easier and efficient. When creating a new automation, you can now multi-select users to receive the notification when the trigger occurs. For example, you could have five different users notified when a negative review is received. The increased scalability of this enhancement allows for users to keep their teams up to date.

What's Next

We are constantly looking to add more capabilities to our automation engine, including utilizing AI in the near future.

ReviewsInbox Date Sort


Summary

Accessing historical reviews in LocalClarity is now even easier with a Date sort in the ReviewsInbox. Users can decide to sort reviews by Newest or Oldest Reviews.

Background

While having the newest reviews visible makes sense for a review response workflow, sometimes it's important for users to access their oldest reviews as well. Previously, this required either changing the date range setting or manually sifting through the ReviewsInbox.

Description

Located right next to Filters, the new Date Sort option allows users to select between Newest First and Oldest First. This could be crucial for a business just getting into review response that wants to start from the beginning of their inbox. 

What's Next

As we continue to enhance the ReviewsInbox, stay tuned for even more filters and enhancements.

Review Validation Audit


Summary

Users can now trigger a full history audit of a Profile's entire Google listings set to validate the status of every single listing's review. This ensures the review counts and average in LocalClarity continue to match Google for even the most actively reviewed locations in the world.

Background

LocalClarity is one of the few services that automatically re-checks customer reviews to identify duplicated, updated and deleted reviews, exploring the most recent 500 reviews per location monthly. While this functionally covers the entire review history for the majority of locations, it didn't validate every historic review for particularly high-volume listings.

Description

In addition to the monthly review audit, LocalClarity users can now run a manual Review Validation Audit to ensure their review counts match Google precisely. Updated reviews receive the new content (along with an updated timestamp) while removed reviews are tagged in the ReviewsInbox and removed from KPI reporting.

What's Next

We continue to enhance our already industry-leading ReviewsInbox with customize controls. are excited to continue offering comprehensive review details and plan to release full review update transparency soon!

Admin User Experience Update

Summary

To support our aggressive 2024 development roadmap, all profile administrators will now see an expanded set of controls and customization options.

Background

Using a construction metaphor...Before adding more floors to the building which is the LocalClarity platform, we decided that first we needed to expand and deepen the foundation. The starting point is the Administrator experience outside of the core Profile functionality.

Description

Admins can seamlessly make changes to how they navigate the platform. Selecting from a dropdown, Admins will be able to pick and choose what navigational options are presented in the Admin screen. This allows Admins to cut through the noise and only show what they need.

What's Next

As we continue to overhaul the user experience, more changes will be made to give Admins even more control over the platform.
