✨🧪 Looking for beta testers 🧪✨

We're excited to share our fresh, new chrome extension with those eager to help with testing, as well as share some of the wonderful feedback we've incorporated this month 🥰

Stream the internet into Clay

We recently launched Sources with the idea that running real time data into your tables (from your tooling or the internet) can help streamline your workflows. You agreed! So we're continuing to build out our library of data sources in our template library, including most recently:

  • Tech stack. Stream in companies using a specific technology from Stackshare
  • Product Hunt. Stream in posts for any given topic on Product Hunt
  • Hubspot. Enrich and qualify new leads from your Hubspot

🤝Join our Chrome Extension Beta

Many of you are familiar with our Chrome Extension — perfect for turning pages of unstructured data into structured lists, in just a couple clicks. We have some cool new changes up our sleeve that will broaden the world of possibilities for pulling the internet into Clay.

📢 We are looking for users interested in testing our revamped extension! If you're an internet adventurer, shoot us an email at friends@clay.run for early access 🧪

👀 Sneak peek of what's new... You'll now be able to map any page on the web yourself, and pull data important to you right into your tables.

🎬 Lights, Camera, Action: New Actions this Month

  • Find suggested people for companies. Push relevant contacts at prospective companies into a secondary table with data including job titles, Linkedin profiles, emails, and more.
  • Anymail Finder. Identify leads with valid emails starting with a company name or domain (Requires your own API key).

🧹 House cleaning

As always, we're continuing to clean up the little bugs that make all the difference, most notably:

  • Selecting "run all actions with errors" appeared to re-run all rows
  • Fixed a Twitter action bug causing certain accounts to return 'No Account Found'
  • Squashed a tiny bug where rows weren't autofilling for manual entries
  • Brought back multi-select + enter to run multiple cells!

🎯 Coming soon... lead scoring for the soul

Have a checklist of requirements that must be true to qualify a lead? You'll soon be able to add scoring to your Clay tables to reflect these conditions and automatically take action on high quality leads -- whether updating a lifecycle stage, pushing to an email sequence, or sending to another Clay table. This feature is currently baking in beta — reach out if you would like to get access!

Stay tuned for more exciting changes from the Clay team coming soon and, as always, for any suggestions, comments or questions find us at friends@clay.run!

Table + real time data = ✨  magic ✨

It's 2021 and as the saying goes, new year, new features. We're excited to introduce Sources, a brand new feature currently in beta, as well as share some of the wonderful feedback we've incorporated this month 🥰

Meet Sources

The Clay table experience has been described by many of you as ✨magic✨, but sometimes finding the data source to get started is half the battle (and without frequent bulk imports, data can quickly become stale).

Meet Sources, real time data in your table. Sources are designed to stream in data that's important to you, as it happens on the web and in your tools. Pull in historical data, subscribe to changes on the web or periodically pull in the latest from your analytics and CRM.

Curious? Check out this quick Loom explaining where you can find Sources, how to set one up, and documentation on configuration.

And here's a list of early examples you can now do with Sources:

  • Stream in all followers of a specific Twitter user or all tweets containing specific keywords.
  • Stream in all stargazers of your Github repository or mentions of a specific technology.
  • Stream in your last interactions with customers in Slack or all members for a given workspace.
  • Sync with existing databases and CRMs (including Airtable).

For the tinkerers: We're experimenting with rollups and pivot tables internally and would love to show you how you create more customized high level analytics on your data using Sources.

💌 For the adventurous: Sources you'd like to see that we don't currently support? Request it here!

🏔 The view from above

We always appreciate your feedback and have some refreshed interactions for views to share that won't disappoint.

  • Exporting a table now maintains the view's column ordering
  • Delete or rename views that you aren't currently in from the dropdown menu
  • See the view you are currently working from in the dropdown menu

🎬 Lights, camera, action

  • Actions and formulas can now be filtered by whether or not they returned data
  • Check if a store is Shopify-hosted without also pulling in all of the store data using our new, simplified Check Shopify Status action.

🧹 House cleaning

We're continuing to clean up little bugs here and there that make all the difference, most notably:

  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from seeing the bottom of the menu when adding a new column.
  • Fixed a bug when copying and pasting multiple cells in a table.

Stay tuned for more exciting changes from the Clay team coming soon and, as always, for any suggestions, comments or questions find us at friends@clay.run!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

This is a quote

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
