The following relate to news and articles about Dynamics 365 Marketing
September 2023 Update
Seems a bit weird to share information on the September release for Marketing/CIJ in October, BUT the information was only recently added to the page, so a bit of a delay. As always, a ton added with 3 items with general availability, 4 in public preview and 8 monthly enhancements. Make sure to check it out!
Personalized journeys with weather condition
This one is blinking marvellous! I love this post from Pauline, all about creating a personalised journey with information about the current weather. She uses a default connector option in Power Automate for MSN Weather and passes it through in to a custom trigger. It’s wonderful, and one of my favourite use cases so far with Real-time Journeys, so kudos to you Pauline!
Real-World Benefits - Instant Communications
The next blog in the series from Kelly, all about the real world benefits of D365 Marketing, and this time it covers instant communications and how we can use custom triggers to help us keep customers, prospects and even candidates up to date as soon as data changes.
Use Copilot to create a journey – Dynamics 365 Marketing
In this blog, Nishant has taken a look at a new feature using Copilot, and that is to use it to create a journey for us using natural language. Interesting to see it in action but I will be curious how much this feature is used out in the real world!

8 Ways To Use Standard Event Based Triggers In Your Realtime Journeys
MEGAN V. WALKER
There are three out of the box standard triggers that relate to Events in Customer Insights Journeys (D365 Marketing). One for an Event Registration Created, one for Event Registration Cancelled and one for an Event Check-In. When building your Journeys to cover an Event, all three can be used in a combination of ways and in different places. This post will walk through when they can be used to enter or exit a journey, on if/then branches, set wait time frames or to create custom goals. Let’s take a look!
If there are any upcoming events relating to Marketing, they will go here!
