Hi, 

I need the functionality of sending a newsletter to a group of users using a standard AEM installation and came across some issues with this:

-you apparently can't add 'normal' user groups as the recipient list of a newsletter - it seems to need the cq:authorizableCategory "mcm" property, so you would have to create groups programmatically, correct?

-the dropdown of "Default Recipients List" doesn't show all of the created lists under /mcmadmin#/content/groups. I've cross checked all of the jcr nodes and can't find out why only 2 show up and the rest of them not (e.g Techsummit one doesn't show). Anything you need to?

We would also like to send newsletters to specific segments. I know that you can create segments in AEM but I don't know how to turn this into a recipient group . Any ideas? Or is this kind of functionality part of Adobe Campaign?

Thanks for any help, 

Alex

Hi Alex,

I just tried this following how to create lists from this page [1]. When I came to adding my list to the newsletter, you are right only DSC shows up in the dropdown. However, if you start to type the name of your recipient list, AEM will autocomplete the name, allowing you to select your custom list. Please see attached screenshots.

I couldn't find anything about using segments in newsletters in the docs I looked at, hopefully someone else can confirm/deny if this is possible.

Regards,

Opkar

I am using 6.1. 

Yeah, I should explore Adobe Campaigns. Thanks.

Hi Alex,

what version of AEM are you using? According to the documentation[1], there will be no more enhancements to the current emailing functionality, so you need to look into Adobe Campaign to see if it has the functionality you require.

Opkar
