FIND AND NURTURE LEADS

New Engagement Studio Actions and Rule
Within Engagement Studio Programs, marketers now have a new Action of “Assign to Salesforce Queue” to more easily utilize existing Salesforce workflows and a new Action of “Adjust Score in Scoring Category” and new Rule of “Check Score in Scoring Category” to impact and assess scoring categories via Engagement Studio.

Engagement Studio Program Scheduled Start and Stop
Marketers can schedule in advance a Start and Stop time for their Engagement Studio Programs. The current process to kickoff or wrap up an Engagement Program is very manual, requiring the Marketer to actually be in the Program at the time they want to Start or Stop. This update will allow Marketers to more easily manage and have more automated control over their Engagement Programs.

Engagement Studio Assets Display Program in Asset’s Usage Table
Now, all assets used within Engagement Studio programs including email templates, lists, landing pages, forms, custom redirects, form handlers, files, Pardot campaigns, scoring categories, prospect fields, users, and groups will display the linkable Engagement Studio program in the asset’s usage table.

Multiple Custom Reply-to Addresses
More flexible options for the custom reply-to field on Pardot List emails and templates. A common use case is when a marketer wants to send an email from a general address or from a particular important user but wants replies to go to the prospect’s assigned user.

Updated Scoring Behaviour During Prospect Merge
Prospect merges to now transfer all score audit adjustments and applies on the resulting master prospect record, including automation rules, completion actions, Engagement Studio Programs, Imports, and manual edits.

Tracker Domain Validation
Trust is the #1 value at Salesforce and Domain Validation validates ownership of branded tracker domains to prove your company owns the domain, which protects your landing pages, custom redirects, and other Pardot assets from being served off of any other customer’s vanity domain.

Updated LinkedIn Social Posting Connector API
The LinkedIn Social Posting Connector API is updated to include improved image posting and reporting on personal page links and comments.
