This would need to be done using the Enrichment activity. You can
configure it to accept data from two sources, and choose which is the
primary source. You then enrich that data with data from the alternative
Unfortunately not Mike.The landing pages are unable to validate against
the profile schema. We have a problem with his as we're unable to
identify if a profile already exists when someone fills in our
subscription form because we're unable to validate against the email
address.It would make my life significantly easier if you could!
Hi all,We currently have a requirement where at the point of sign-up we
need to somehow cater for anyone who is already in our marketing
database.Currently our sign up form has an associated transactional
message that triggers and sends the new contact a double opt-in email.
The problem we have is if someone is signing up without realising that
are already in the system.The transactional email only sends to new
contacts who haven't received it before, so as far as the existing
contact is concern...
Hi David,The main discrepancy in the numbers is between the KPI's that
are displayed on the delivery summary page vs the stats that are
provided if you run a dynamic report.I have been working with one of the
Adobe Campaign Support team and I've been advised that the software was
designed to pull these numbers from two different sources. This seems
crazy to me but I've been advised that to access the up to date, correct
numbers you need to use the Dynamic reports.I need to test a new
Yes it should be possible. We use the same functionality for our country
field on a profile acquisition landing page.When a user chooses to
unsubscribe, what is the next step? Does it link to the 'next page' or
to an alternative unsubscription landing page?
Try adding an additional blank option. I suspect it's struggling with
passing no value if you don't select an option.Add the following above
the other options:*You
also need to clean up the mark up and add the style tag back in. All of
the following is rendered useless:0px="" 8px="" position:="" static=""

Unlikely Richard if you are only targeting personal email addresses.We
generally run into the problem with large financial organisations -
their networks are very hot on emails with images and links to avoid
phishing. A nightmare to develop email layouts for!
Dependent on the type of audience you are sending to I'd be careful on
using a single tracking log to be the sole basis of an opt in.We send to
various professional services firms, and many of them have strict
networks that canvas all of the links within our emails before
delivering the email to the individuals inbox. Because of this the
tracking logs report a click on each of the links for certain people
when in actual fact the individual may not have actually clicked on any
of the links with t...
I believe this is standard now for the platform. When we initially
adopted ACS the term used to be longer, but since GDPR has come into
play they have reduced it to 6 months.You could set up a scheduled
workflow to export the data on a monthly basis and then use that data
outside of ACS to store all logs if you need to reference history older
than 6 months.
To export a list you need to have an SFTP server available or an AWS
account. You are unable to export a file directly to your local
machine.Once the file has been exported to the SFTP area, you can access
that file and save a local copy if required.In terms of the fields you
need - You specify these within the extract file activity.
Currently we import a large number of stand alone lists into ACS and
save these as an Audience (Type: List).When you go into each Audience,
it has a number count, and a 'Count Date' listed. Unfortunately that
'Count' number doesn't automatically update - it's a static number that
relates to the original number of a list. The count date seems to update
each time that audience is used for a mailing, but by looking at it, it
suggests that the count number, would relate to the count date, which is
I've noticed the count function is available if you add Additional data
to a query from an alternative data schema, but I'm not sure how to make
this work for the native(profile) schema.We'd find this functionality
useful too so I'm keen to find out if it's possible too.
In the Load File activity it would be very useful if you could set your
own default values for fields within the 'Column Definition'
tab.Currently every time we load a new list and refresh the file
structure, all of the field values within Column Definition are reset to
the default settings, so every time we need to manually go in and set
one of the fields to an Integer type, and set another field to convert
all values to lowercase (for the email address).This leaves scope for
user error if anyo...
It would be very useful if when adding an email activity to a workflow
you could select an existing draft email, rather than having to create
an email from scratch every time. So for example when it brings up all
the template options, it also has a tab for 'Drafts' and lists all
emails in draft format to select from.We often create a draft email
outside of a workflow, but then the original request changes and we have
to re-create via a workflow.
