New features are released every two weeks, but it may take some time before the latest release appears on your instance. To find out which version you are currently using, simply click on the question mark icon in the upper tab of the Bloomreach Engagement application.
This release includes no major features or updates to our platform. But there's an announcement we'd like to share with you:
We would like to inform you of an upcoming update to the Custom Recipient feature. Custom Recipient allows you to override the recipient of an email.
In a future update, we are focusing on improving the consistency of this feature. We’ll ensure that consent and frequency policies are reliably bypassed when you use Custom Recipient. Currently, the app warns you that they are ignored. However, if the custom recipient has the same value as the default recipient, consent and frequency policies are still applied. With this refinement, you can expect the feature to perform uniformly across all scenarios, aligning with the documentation within the app.
This enhancement is still in development, and we are sharing this news in advance to offer you the opportunity to provide feedback or raise any questions about how this change may affect your current processes. Your input is important to us, and we aim to make this transition as seamless as possible for you and your team. Please look forward to more details in our subsequent communications.

Although you can already limit specific permissions with our granular roles, all users with a correct role could edit all scenarios or segmentations. Now you can even limit access to specific users by creating groups where you can assign them to edit just the chosen ones.
This feature is especially useful if you have multiple teams, agencies, or users that work with a set of different scenarios or segmentations and want to prevent unintentional changes also to scenarios or segmentations from other users.

Note that the value returned by the total_price attribute will be different from _total_price_usd since total_price is returned for the currency represented in the total_price_currency attribute and should respect the store currency.
