Wondering if anyone in the group uses the Preference Center option in Marketing Cloud to capture email opt-ins/outs? We are currently experiencing issues around syncing with Sales Cloud. In addition to the Email Opt In option in MC, we added 3 other opt-in choices. The plan is to be able to fully opt-in, fully opt out, or have partial opt-ins for customers. These would then sync to Sales Cloud fields on both the Lead and the Contact. Both customers and CSRs would have the ability to opt-in or opt-out a customer. A link to the Preference Center would be available on a form or page within our website for customers to choose. A Link to the Preference Center would be available on the contact or lead record for CSRs to update. The link would bring them to a form (hosted on MC I believe) where they would make their choices. Upon Update, the form is supposed to sync with a Data Extension which somehow gets synced with Sales Cloud. Seems the Email Opt In is syncing correctly with Sales Cloud, but the other choices are not. Does anyone here use a 3rd party for this? Or is there a way to better utilize the native feature? Thanks!

What is the recommended way to handle Hard Bounces? MC will automatically make an account/email inactive after 3 bounced emails right? I've read some documentation on how to manually remove the hard bounces. Is that recommended since we have a higher amount of bounces right now since moving over to MC a few weeks ago. More

Is there a way to monitor queueing for Journey Builder sends? Does MC have functionality that will either send an email or note whenever queueing stars to occur? More

Hi there, We are having trouble importing a .csv file into a Data Extension with Text as the data type in Marketing Cloud. The .csv file contains two columns of currency information. Marketing Cloud will not import any rows containing a "," in the currency data and gives me an Invalid Field Count error. We have imported these types of files in the past -- specifically on Feb. 7, 2020, with success. Also tried saving the .csv file using general data and import into a Data Extension with Text as the data type. All rows import but then we can't get any $0 amounts to display even when 0's have been imported in the DE. How can I either import the file or use AMPscript within the email to get the variable information to display appropriately? @Lindsay Stille More

#MCAskAnExpert. I am looking for the best way to handle a lifecycle process. There are two series of paths that over-lap based on entry point. - Based on date of birth(DOB) certain communications should go out that are more closely aligned with the DOB (T1-12) (This segment also would include a customer opts in with no DOB T1-12) - A customer opts in mid-cycle DOB at T7 for example, want them to start there, but also receive T1-6 At any point the DOB can be updated. Over the course of a year, would like them to only receive 1 of each touch. I would assume to have a DE updated with T1-12 and put a flag/date when they had received each communication. More
