Creating a local campaign (by form)

The By form type Web interface involves using a Web application . Depending on its configuration, this Web application can contain any type of defined personalized elements. For example, you can suggest links to evaluate the target, the budget, the content, etc. via dedicated APIs.
APIs are detailed in a dedicated document, access to which is dependent on your contract. Refer to API .
The Web application used in this example is not a Web app that comes out-of-the-box with Adobe Campaign. To use a form in a campaign, you must create the dedicated Web application.
When creating the campaign template, click the Zoom icon within the Web interface option of the Advanced campaign settings... link to access details of the Web application.
Web application parameters are only available in the campaign template.
In the Edit tab, select the Campaign order activity and open it to access its content.
In this example, the Campaign order activity includes:
  • fields to be entered by the local entity during the order,
  • links that will allow the local entity to evaluate the campaign (e.g. the target, budget, content, etc.),
  • scripts that allow you to calculate and display the result of these evaluations.
In this example, the following APIs are used:
  • For the target evaluation,
    var res = nms.localOrder.EvaluateTarget(ctx.localOrder);
    
    
  • For the budget evaluation,
    var res = nms.localOrder.EvaluateDeliveryBudget(ctx.@deliveryId, NL.XTK.parseNumber(ctx.@compt));
    
    
  • For the content evaluation,
    var res = nms.localOrder.EvaluateContent(ctx.localOrder, ctx.@deliveryId, "html", resSeed.@id);
    
    

Creating a collaborative campaign (by target approval)

Introduction

You are the marketing manager for a large clothing brand that has an online store and several boutiques all over the US. Now that spring has arrived, you decide to create a special offer that will give your best clients 50% off all dresses in your catalog.
This offer is aimed at the best clients of your US stores, meaning those who have spent more than $300 since the beginning of the year.
You therefore decide to use Distributed Marketing to create a collaborative campaign (by target approval) which will allow you to select your stores' best clients (grouped by region), who will receive the email delivery containing the special offer.
The first part of this example illustrates your local entities receiving the campaign creation notification, and how they can use it to evaluate the campaign and order it.
The second part of this example explains how to create your campaign.
The steps are as follows:
For the local entity
  1. Use the campaign creation notification to access the list of contacts selected by the central entity.
  2. Select the contacts and approve participation.
For the central entity:
  1. Create a Data distribution activity.
  2. Create the collaborative campaign.
  3. Publish the campaign.

Local entity side

  1. The local entities that have been chosen to participate in the campaign will receive an email notification.
  2. By clicking the Access your contact list and approve targeting link, the local entity is given access (via Web browser) to the list of clients selected for the campaign.
  3. The local entity unchecks certain contacts from the list because they have already been contacted for a similar offer since the start of the year.
Once the checks have been approved, the campaign can start automatically.

Central entity side

Creating a data distribution activity

  1. To set up a collaborative campaign (by target approval) you must first create a Data distribution activity . Click the New icon in the Resources > Campaign management > Data distribution node.
  2. In the General tab, you must specify:
    • the Targeting dimension . Here the Data distribution is carried out on the Recipients .
    • the Distribution type . You can choose a Fixed size or a Size as a percentage .
    • the Assignment type . Select the Local entity option.
    • the Distribution type . Here, it is the Origin (@origin) field present in the Recipient table that lets you identify the relationship between the contact and the local entity.
    • The Approval storage field. Select the Local approval of recipient option.
  3. In the Breakdown tab, specify:
    • the Distribution field value , which corresponds to the local entities involved in the upcoming campaign.
    • the local entity label .
    • the Size (fixed or as a percentage). The 0 default value involves selecting all the recipients linked to the local entity.
  4. Save your new data distribution.

Creating a collaborative campaign

  1. From the Campaign management > Campaign node, create a new collaborative campaign (by target approval) .
  2. In the Targeting and workflows tab, create a workflow for your campaign. This must contain a Split activity in which the Record count limitation is defined by the Data distribution activity.
  3. Add a Local approval action where you can specify:
    • the message content that will be sent to the local entities in the notification,
    • the approval reminder,
    • the expected processing for the campaign
  4. Save your record.

Publishing the campaign

You can now add a campaign package from the Campaigns universe.
  1. Choose your Reference campaign . In the Edit tab of your package, you can select the Approval mode to use for your campaign:
    • in Manual mode, the local entities participate in the campaign if they accept the invitation from the central entity. They can delete pre-selected contacts if they want to and approval from the manager is necessary to confirm their participation in the campaign.
    • in Automatic mode, the local entities must participate in the campaign, unless they unregister themselves from it. They can delete contacts without needing approval.
  2. In the Description tab, you can add a description for your campaign as well as any documents to be sent to the local entities.
  3. Approve your campaign package then start your workflow to publish the package and make it available to all the local entities in list of packages.
