Project details

Dotdigital Implementation Consultancy team to build 28 triggered email campaigns in account for use with Microsoft Dynamics transactional send. 

There is a Creative Express Toolkit available in the account for Dotdigital to use for this project. A number of campaigns provided by Christian Aid have a black header, rather than the red available - we will adjust the background colour for these builds.

Christian Aid have provided 28 HTML files for the builds which we will use as a reference for layout, content, images and links. 

  1. As these are triggered from Dynamics, Christian Aid would need to manage the configuration of this
    1. Please see this article for using Dynamics Transactional Workflows
    2. Tom has provided a file that outlines the personalisation in each campaign
    3. The ‘default’ value if no data exists can be set in Dynamics e.g., if there’s no firstname, some campaigns are using “friend”

    4. Christian Aid would need to supply us with each Data Label (the all caps name, not the ‘value’ in brackets)


    1. For Christian Aid to complete / start the Dynamics Workflow set up we can
      1. Create placeholder campaigns in the Dotdigital account to generate campaign IDs, we’ll then provide the campaign IDs so these can be added in to the workflows
    2. Christian Aid should supply us ASAP with the data label names – these can be added in to the spreadsheet Tom has circulated
    3. The HTML files did not contain a subject line – please also make sure this is added to the spreadsheet circulated
    4. We can save content images from the HTML files, but if any need to change, these should be supplied separately
    5. The Dynamics work needs to be completed by Christian Aid – Dotdigital cannot support with troubleshooting workflows 
    6. If there is priority of campaigns that need to be created first, please group these in the spreadsheet or add an additional column for P1, P2 etc.
