You can review all of the features from Wave 1 and Wave 2 2023 and even quickly see the change history to know if anything has had the dates moved.
Creating Internal Notification Emails For Realtime Marketing Form Submissions
MEGAN V. WALKER
If you are using Realtime Marketing forms in D365 then this might be a blog post for you! You can follow one approach for sending notification email when someone submits an Outbound marketing form, but you’ll need to create a different process for Realtime. In this article I will walk through how to create a flow in Power Automate and provide details about how the records are linked together for Realtime Marketing submissions.
D365 Marketing Events Portal Using Power Pages
MEGAN V. WALKER
When setting up D365 Marketing for the first time, you are given an option for web hosting to determine where your landing pages and marketing forms are going to be used. You can use your own webserver, or a D365 portal. Until now, I have always suggested using your own webserver as the easiest option. The main reason was the ability to customise how the portal looked, making sure it was fully branded with the same look and feel as your own corporate site. Although it was possible, the Event website uses Angular, rather than HTML and Liquid (used in Power Pages). Until now that is. This post is the first in a series all about creating your own Marketing Events Portal using a Power Pages (Power Apps) portal.
If there are any upcoming events relating to Marketing, they will go here!
Scottish Summit On Tour
This is a hot ticket, and could be that you’ll miss out unless you get on the waitlist right away! Scottish Summit are on tour this year, with the next event being held in Manchester, England on August 5th 2023. It’s sure to be a fantastic event, so if you can make it, join the waitlist and keep your fingers crossed that you are able to get a golden ticket!
