  1. A|B Testing Campaign

    My organization sends a lot of email marketing content to various customers. We advertise a CRM boot camp and we usually will send out a few different emails pertaining to the same offerings, but we use different images and formatting of text. I would like the ability to track the statistics from those emails into Dynamics.

    Our R&D team has done some preliminary research on A|B testing in MailChimp and how that may work in CRM.

    We will make sure to provide any updates on the progress of this research to see if it would be feasible to add to PowerMailChimp

  2. Quick Send Solution

    Enable feature to allow user to send emails to one Lead or Contact with fewer steps (ClickDimensions has this feature), e.g.:


    1. From Contact or Lead, click "Quick MailChimp" button


    2. Pop-up box allows user to select MC Audience and MC Template and fill in Subject Line and From address (defaults to current user).


    3. User clicks "Send" and approves sending the message.


    4 Background process creates the associated Marketing List and Blast records, and sends the message.

    Thank you for your suggestion! Sending a blast directly to one Lead or Contact can be useful. Can you please provide us with a specific use case? We will monitor this suggestion.

  3. Automatic Remailing

    If a mailblast is sent, the it would be useful to be able to define a time period on which those receipients who have not met a criteria (eg. not opened their email) could be remailed from the same (or follow up) blast automatically.

    If from the same blast, then the same email template would be used.

    If a second blast could be configured at the same time as the initial blast, and then referenced for follow up within that initial blast, then a different 'reminder' template email could be sent from the follow up blast.

    Hi, Thank you for posting an idea!

    This is a great idea and we will bring this up to the developers for next steps. We are looking into this further and will let you know if further information is needed.

    Thank you!

  4. URL shown in the click action

    It should be possible to see the specific URL, that the recepient of a blast have clicked at. Currently it is only possible to that they have clicked but not where.
    If the URL was available in the click action we would be able to set up nuture flows based on which URL the user clicked at. Mailchimp register this information so it should be able to add to the data.

  5. unsubscribes sync into crm

    We love the sync feature of PowerMailChimp (but does not use the blast feature - here we turn directly to Mailchimp)

    But when a contact in MC unsubscribes, we would like to create i.e. an unsubscribe task linked to the Contact, so we could trigger a flow for unchecking things in CRM.

    Hi, Thank you for posting an idea regarding PowerMailChimp!

    Not sure, I completely understand the idea posted. Could you please provide further detail and use case? Just to confirm you are looking to have unsubscribed data in MailChimp to appear on the CRM side and where specifically? Are you referring to the contact box on the contact form or the blast data that appears on the PowerMailChimp blast dashboard?

  6. MailChimp Campaign Reports

    Carry forward the Phone numbers from the contacts in the marketing lists to the MailChimp side.

  7. Consolidate Tabs on Power Mailchimp Blast

    Due to the layout changes in the UCI there are a large number of tabs with a limited number of fields. I suggest using sections for some items instead of Tabs.

    I would suggest consolidating the following tabs into the General Tab, which would give the user the ability to create the blast on the general tab instead of navigating to multiple tabs.

    Tabs to consolidate:i
    Associate Marketing List Tab
    Email Contents Tab
    Email Tracking Tab
    Advanced Tracking Tab

    I would also suggest consolidating the Status, Statistics Management and Maintenance Tab into 1 tab as most of these fields are…

  8. Add ability to set time zone

    We have been told that we can't create scheduled emails in PowerMailChimp because we are in the UK so the time zone information is not saved correctly. Is this true? If so, please could you make it possible to schedule emails from different time zones.

  9. Sending a MailChimp campaign from PowerMailChimp, not just templates

    We want to be able to create and save emails in MailChimp as MailChimp campaigns, so that they are filed sensibly in MailChimp and don't clutter up the templates list. But we can only send things saved as templates. This is strange and annoying. Please could you fix it.

  11. Auto-Sync Solution

    Need ability to access and run a Marketing List Sync via MS Flow and/or CRM Workflow. Ideally, we need a process to automate re-syncing a list when changes are made to membership.

  14. Automatic email feature uisng PowerMailChimp

    It would be great or helpful if we could use PowerMailChimp for sending out automatic emails (Birthday for ex). Unfortunately, the answer to this question, is no. PowerMailChimp is designed for bulk emailing, not for sending to individual contacts. PowerMailChimp allows you to send the blast “now” or schedule the blast for later. However, it does not have the ability to trigger a workflow to send out a blast at a specific date, for a specific person. Instead of triggering if we could have an extra feature that would send out event based emails.
