Classic Campaign – Selecting Additional Data Sources

Important: Effective December 21, 2021, Responsys will not support Classic Campaign functionality. Classic Campaigns will remain available to you to send email campaigns during the 2020 and 2021 holiday seasons. Beginning 2022, Campaign Designer will be the only Responsys tool for creating and sending targeted and personalized campaigns.

In this step, you can select additional data sources (supplemental data tables and profile extensions) to use for the campaign. What's this?Closed Additional data sources are used to augment the essential data contained in the list, Proof List, and Seed List. You can select different data sources for the launch, proof list, and seed list.

Note: If you created a segment group that uses a profile extension table in addition to a list, you must select that profile extension table as an additional data source for the campaign. For more information, see Creating Segment Groups.

Before You Begin:

Before you can select additional data sources, you must:

  • Create the Profile Extensions and Supplemental Tables

    Note: To use a Profile Extension as a personalization data source, you must create it on the list used for this campaign.

  • Ensure that the data sources for the Proof List have identical field and column names as the other personalization data sources. Otherwise, some records might be skipped during the Proof Launch.
  • Select recipients

To select additional data sources

  1. In the Folders list, select a folder that contains the data source.
  2. In the Contents list, select the data source and click next to the Personalization section you want. Use the Ctrl and Shift keys to select multiple data sources.
