Issue 36 of D365 Marketing Weekly

For those observant few, you may have noticed the D365 Marketing Weekly site was down for a bit last week. I moved the service used for the newsletter from Substack to beehiiv so had a little downtime while things updated. All back up and running with everything moved over and hopefully a slightly more streamlined site with some new features for me to test out. One new things is the ability to add comments to an issue, so feel free if you’ve something to share! Just scroll to the bottom and join the conversation!

As always, if you spot anything you think would be worth a mention, just let me know by emailing [email protected]. Always good to know of others posting about D365 Marketing or if you see anything else other marketers should know about.

Now let’s get on with the newsletter!

The following relate to news and articles about Dynamics 365 Marketing

“Select all”: Javascript in the real-time form


Another great post from Pauline, this one with a way in which to provide a Select All check box so someone filling out a Realtime marketing form and select all purposes or topics in one go. She’s provided a nice Javascript example for you to get started with, so check this one out!

Redirect After Preference Centre Submission


I wrote about how to make your Preference Centre page look more in line with your organisations branding by adjusting the CSS and adding a few extra items to the HTML code. That's all well and good, but after the form is submitted, that nice experience is (IMHO) ruined, because the person is taken to another page with a plain background, a green check mark image, and whatever text you added to the thank you notification under form settings. Can that be improved? Not within the CSS at the moment, but we can do one better and do a redirect to a thank you page on your own website. Let's take a look!

Other Marketing content you might find useful

Creating unique brand assets with Designer & DALL·E


I found the Create site from Microsoft while Googling how to create better AI prompts for Microsoft Designer. This is a good first article to get started with from Guy Parsons, but this one about generating art was really helpful too. It’s about knowing and understanding additional ways to get the most from the tool, and the tips are very much appreciated!

Not A Designer newsletter


I noticed this newsletter that was shared by Scott Hanselman over on Threads. It focuses on how to approach design best practices and principles, for people who are NOT a designer. For example, a great issue looking at ways to improve checkbox design on a form, or approaching content structure with wireframes, or rules for picking your heading’s typeface. I’ve subscribed and pretty sure I will end up sharing more content from Saron!

Not A Designer newsletter

MarTech Toolkit newsletter


This is another newsletter I found after switching to beehiiv. This is put together by Ewen who is a digital marketer and writes about trends in marketing technology, and features news, tips and tools that can help us all! Another one that might be useful to help stay up to date with all things marketing!
