Are you ready for an exciting update in Dynamics 365? The Wave 1 2024 release brings forth a highly anticipated feature: consent management directly within Customer Insights. This enhancement promises to streamline your workflow and provide greater control over communication preferences, ensuring compliance with data privacy regulations. Dynamics 365 Customer Insights – Journeys merges customer experience, generative AI, and marketing automation, enabling businesses to personalize end-to-end journeys and strengthen customer relationships.

Managing Consent: A Game-Changing Feature

With the latest update, Dynamics 365 introduces a significant enhancement: the ability to manage consent directly from Lead and Contact records within Customer Insights. This feature marks a crucial milestone in empowering organizations to maintain compliance and respect individual preferences regarding communication. Dynamics 365 Customer Insights – Journeys is no longer limited to marketers alone. It now extends its capabilities to business users, leveraging AI and natural language input assistance. These users can construct trigger-based journeys that span multiple touchpoints, nurturing relationships from prospects through sales and support.

How it empowers Organizations

1. Engage Customers in Real Time:

  • Organizations can create trigger-based customer journeys using channels like emailtext message, or push notifications.
  • These journeys respond to customer-led actions in the moments that matter, ensuring timely interactions.
  • The right channel is chosen for each individual, enhancing engagement.

2. Win Customers and Foster Loyalty:

  • Real-time customer journeys span all touchpoints, providing an end-to-end experience.
  • Personalization is key, with AI-driven recommendations for content, channels, and analytics.
  • Granular lead qualification strengthens the synergy between sales and marketing.

3. Unified, Adaptable Platform:

  • Customize and connect with existing tools.
  • Efficiently manage compliance requirements and accessibility guidelines.

Remember these 3 key considerations when creating customer journeys:

  • Who: Define your audience using segments (e.g., age, location, income).
  • What: Choose the communication type (email, push notification, or text message).
  • When: Plan a time or trigger the communication based on customer actions.

Key Functionality Highlights

  1. Enabling the Feature: To begin using this feature, ensure you’re up to date with at least version 1.1.38813.71 for the marketing app. Navigate to the Feature switches and activate the “Manage consent in contact and lead forms” option. Although in preview, there’s no reason to hold back from experiencing its benefits.
  2. Using the Communication Control: Upon activation, the new control will appear on the out-of-the-box Contact and Lead forms. It allows you to view and manage consent records for commercial and transactional purposes, enhancing communication preferences management within your organization.
  3. Security Access Requirements: Ensure all users have appropriate security roles to access the Communication tab and interact with consent records. Adjust existing security roles or create new ones to grant read and write access to the necessary tables, ensuring compliance and data integrity.
  4. Adding the Communication Control to Custom Forms: Customize your Lead and Contact forms to include the Communication tab. Adding the Contactability Grid component is straightforward and can be seamlessly integrated into your existing forms, facilitating consent management across your organization.
