Learn about the information required to add/rename/delete a business unit and what you'll be responsible for managing once complete.
By implementing a simplified Marketing Cloud business unit and preference model across all campuses, the eComm team will reduce costs, streamline the constituent experience, and decrease the level of backend management needed. The current model has 151 business units and 373 associated preferences. This project aims to reduce these numbers by at least 50%.
When faced with a failed send, a send to 0, or failed Data Extension, review the items below. Often, the root cause is something over which you have control rather than a systemic failure in Salesforce or Marketing Cloud. If there is an outage or broad issue, users will be notified as soon as possible.
Person of Interest or POI data is used for Contacts with a non-traditional, close affiliation with CU. As of March 2023, POIs make up 32K+ Contacts. Some examples include Security / Training, Volunteer and Student Athlete.

Collecting credit card information to process part of the payment now and the other portion at a later time doesn't align with CU's approach to protecting cardholders and it should not be enabled under any circumstances. The good news is, by default, this setting is disabled across all events and most users remain unaware of this functionality. Follow these instructions to confirm your paid event doesn't have this feature enabled.
