Editing the Subscription Management Page

The Subscription Manage Page is a page allowing your contacts to subscribe to and unsubscribe from email groups. Any email group set up to be included in the Subscription Management Page appears on the page. The page also includes an option to unsubscribe from all emails. If a contact unsubscribes to a group, the changes are immediate. You can verify a contact's status when you search and view contact records.

Note: If the contact uses the Global Opt-Out Confirmation Page, their status is changed to "Unsubscribed Globally." This status overrides any email group subscriptions set on the Subscription Management Page. However, Oracle Eloqua retains the contact's email group preferences so that if its status ever changes to "Subscribed Globally," those group preferences will take effect.

Note: The Global Opt-Out and Global Opt-In confirmation pages are not displayed when any changes are made to the subscription management list.

The Subscription Management Page is a static page that you modify by entering information into the relevant fields. You can partially edit the page using HTML style tags at the top and bottom of the page if needed.
