Good morning and thank you for hosting this!
I am particularly interested in leveraging content blocks for dynamically automating the sender Name, Address, and reply-to email based on a data associated with the profile.
The recipient, John Doe, has an account that is serviced by the company associate, Sarah Johnson...while another recipient, Jack Smith, has an account that is serviced by the company associate, Christopher Robin...
Each recipient has a custom fields (cusCompanyRepresentative) that captures this company associates name.
How could I leverage content blocks to read this custom field and adjust the sender name, address, and reply-to email based on who the recipients company associate?
Hi @cdermody ,
From a best practices and deliverability standpoint you will not want to adjust the sender email address coming from Campaign as you need to be sending on a consist address which has been associated to the IP's assigned to Campaign and warmed for the sending. There is more flexibility in the sender name and certainly with the reply-to address.
A content block can be used within the body of the email to include the Company Associate name, email address, and other information. Depending on your data model you may need to join from the recipient schema over to the schema where you store that information, you indicate you have the associates name on the recipient if the other information is also present it can just be used and pulled into the target data as other fields from the recipient, it would look similar to this:
<%= recipient.cusCompanyRespresentative %>
Here is a good help article on personalization blocks https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/campaign-classic/using/sending-messages/personalizing-delive...
We also have this video tutorial on dynamic content blocks: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/campaign-classic-learn/tutorials/sending-messages/email-chan...
@mihenry Thanks for the insight! I failed to mention I'm in ACS not ACC so apologies for that.
Here is a link to my previous submission detailing this scenario: https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-campaign-standard/using-branding-configuratio...
I'm not trying to change the domain the email is coming from, but rather modify the prefix of the sender address so that if the recipients "company rep" is known, that the email appears to come from them. Even if this is just the sender name and reply-to address being dynamically adjusted based on profile data schema, that would be a step forward.
Is there any ACS documentation that helps overview how to build content blocks from scratch, how they work and use cases about them?
Within ACS you have the ability to create the Content block that can contain the Associate Name. This is the documentation on creating a content block in ACS: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/campaign-classic-learn/tutorials/sending-messages/email-chan...
Then within the email delivery you can edit the From (name) field
and insert your content block:
I hope this helps to set you on the path achieve your use case.
@mihenry Thank you for confirming the approach offers some value.
Anything that helps me learn HOW to build these would be greatly appreciated.
