The eComm team is currently working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet we remain committed to serving our users and ensuring success for both ongoing communications and event management. We encourage you to contact your eComm specialist if you require assistance. You can also take advantage of numerous online resources in the eComm wiki or submit a help ticket if you have a specific request.
Manually Managing Email Preferences
NOTE This task requires assistance from your eComm Specialist.
We've probably all received an email from a constituent that says something along the lines of, "Stop emailing me. I want to opt-out," or "How can I start receiving a particular communication?"
If you already read about honoring email preferences, you know that while constituents can click the manage my email preferences link in the CU Footer for All Emails, not every constituent chooses that path. If you receive an email asking you to modify preferences, please send it to your eComm Specialist for processing. Only eComm Specialists have the ability to manually modify preferences in Salesforce.
The good news? It's usually a pretty quick change.
A Few Notes for eComm Specialists
Opting Contacts Out of All Emails
- If you opt a contact out of all emails in Salesforce, the System team will send a weekly file of email opt out data to Advancement Records so that email opt out information can be updated accordingly in the source system.
- If you are opting a contact out of specific category of emails, be sure to double check that clicking the opt-out of all check box results in the other category boxes being unchecked.
Opting Contacts Back Into All Emails
- If you opt a contact back into all emails in Salesforce, the System team will send a weekly file of email opt in data to Advancement Records so that email opt in information can be updated accordingly in the source system.
- The System team will complete a weekly reactivation of subscribers who were previously opted out in Marketing Cloud. If you need immediate action on reactivating a subscriber and cannot wait for the weekly change process, please contact Jennifer Mortensen.
