Sending Emails From Contact And Lead Owners In Realtime Marketing
MEGAN V. WALKER
This isn’t a new thing but I am surprised by how often people aren’t sure how to do this, so this post is about how you can send your marketing emails in Customer Insights Journeys (D365 Marketing) from the owner of a Contact or Lead. You could also apply this to other customer fields such as an Account Manager field, or Support Rep field or anywhere else you have a user lookup field. In this example I will walk through creating dynamic text to pull in the full name and email address of the Owner of a Contact or Lead. We set it up once, then it can be used over an over again by users when needing to send an email from the Owner of the record.

Birmingham D365 & Power Platform User Group
DYNAMICS 365 & POWER PLATFORM UK USER GROUPS
Leaving this one here…. because it’s the only event I will be presenting at this year so deserves another week in the newsletter. 😂This is in the evening on Thursday November 23rd in Birmingham, UK. I will delve in to Realtime Marketing in Customer Insights - Journeys (formerly D365 Marketing). With recent announcements from Microsoft, Realtime is the way to go, and Outbound is no longer even an option for newer customers! Is your organisation ready to make the move? Although you have time, the amount of work and effort will vary depending on the size of a company and the amount of assets and journeys currently being used. I will walk through the specific areas to be aware of and aim to provide a less daunting journey for you (no pun intended)! Would love to see you there!
