Create and send campaigns with Odoo 15 Marketing automation Module

After you've finished configuring the letter templates, you may go on to the Campaign. It's worth noting that the newly produced email template will be available for use in the campaign section's Email templates section. After that, you may set up the Trigger option. In the image above, the trigger choice is highlighted below. You can use the trigger option to establish a trigger for your freshly created email campaign. You can set a variety of parameters under the Trigger option. You may also choose when the trigger should be triggered, and there are other alternatives to choose from, as seen in the image above. You can also set the trigger's activation time. If a lead clicks on a promotional email you've sent them, you may arrange the automated mailing system to send them another email an hour later, or a day later, and so on.
It is recommended that you treat leads with care and do not bombard them with emails that will have a negative influence on their perception of your company or items. 
After you've set the trigger, you'll need to activate it to set the Expiry Duration.
The Expiry Duration option allows you to create time-bound promotional activities, which will all be automatically discontinued after the Expiration date. After that, you can modify the Domain to even more effectively filter out your leads. This also allows you to study the nature of the leads' prior purchases or consumer behavior in order to send them promotional emails tailored to their needs. This is an effective technique to attract qualified leads to your company. 
To see the options listed above, click the space next to Apply Filter in the Domain section. Select the options to limit down your leads depending on your preferences. It will display the filter that you have applied under the Applied Filter sections. To save the complete method, click the Save button after you've finished configuring it. As illustrated below, the saved campaign will be available in the Campaign area. 
You may examine and adjust the newly created campaign by clicking on it, as shown below. 
The Workflow is depicted at the bottom of the page. You can have a more advanced setting by clicking the Edit button on the same page, which will bring up the editing choices. 
Here is where you may make changes to your Campaign form. You can add a new activity under the Workflow sections, and you can see an option called Add child activity under the existing activity, as shown below. 
When you click on it, you'll be presented with a new set of options, as illustrated above. Campaign and advanced mail management encompass all of these options. You must understand these settings in order to customize and use the functionality effectively. All of the features are focused on your prospects' actions in response to the emails or messages you've sent them. 
This can be thought of as an activity management command part. This section helps you to keep track of your leads' responses to the campaign information you've sent them. There are further alternatives such as Add another activity, Opened, Not opened, Replied, Not replied, Clicked, Not clicked, and Bounced for each possible action. Each one depicts the many actions that your mail may have engaged in with the leads. You can program the automated email system to behave differently in each activity. Click on the option that needs to be configured from the list, and a configuration page will appear, similar to the activity creation page. 
All of the setting choices indicated in the activity construct a section will be available to you. Configure the email and make a note that it will be sent to them in connection with the lead's activities. Select the activity type after entering the Promo's name. The trigger option is also available here. Select the trigger time and what produces the trigger, as previously specified. The name of the activity that you have chosen can be seen. Set the Expiry time and then go to the Domain part to set it up. You may filter down the leads under this as well, similar to what you did earlier.
It's worth noting that limiting down your leads to the maximum number allows you to get a clearer picture of them and makes it easier to send the promotional program to them individually. To save the activity, click the save button after you've applied it.
 As demonstrated in the screenshot, after saving the activity, it will appear under the previously created activity.
The arrow pointing to the newly established activity can be seen above. Both activities are focused on leads, and to add a new activity to your database, go to the Add New Child Activity page and choose from the possibilities. To add a new activity to your database, do the following. As illustrated below, the standard configuration tab will be available. 
Click the Server actions button on the setup tab to mark the newly generated activity as a server action, which means it will not be communicated to leads or customers. Fill in the rest of the information in accordance with your company's marketing policies, as stated below. 
After creating the new activity name, choose Server action as the activity type because it is internal and not intended for customers. Creating a new server action may be found under the server action section. To configure the server, a new configuration page will appear, as seen below. 
Here you can set up the whole server action form.  Give the server action a name. Select the nature of the action from the drop-down box in the Action to do option before moving on to Data to write. To add a field to the segment, click the Add a line option under the field, as shown below. 
As indicated above, select the Field to add from the drop-down menu. The fields can be used to indicate the purpose of the newly generated Server action, such as selecting stage change from the dropdown options if the server action is for stage change. Set the record in relation to your server action purpose by selecting the Evaluation type from the drop-down menu. If the goal is to change the stage, you can select this option. To apply it to the field, look under Evaluation and select the qualified option under Record. After you've finished configuring, click the Save button to save your changes. 
You can configure the Domain again if you wish, but it is absolutely optional at this stage, and because internal server actions require less narrowing down, the filter is not required. To save the entire process, click the Save and Close button after you've finished configuring it. 
After you've completed the configurations, click the Launch a test button to run the activity as a test to review the newly generated activity. 
Click it to execute a test of the campaign before releasing it to the public. After choosing the Launch test button, you'll be taken to a confirmation page where you'll be asked to choose a customer and conduct the test, as shown below. 
As indicated above, click the Run button. Soon after, the customer will receive an email, which you can validate from here as it will be displayed after the email is opened. 
The opened button will light up to indicate that the mail has been opened by the customer. Keep in mind that all of these procedures are done out in accordance with the configurations' regulations. As illustrated below, the following step will immediately open for you to complete. 
The selection will change after you open send mail, as seen below. 
When the customer clicks on the mail, the option for the date and time of the customer's mail acceptance changes from Not yet clicked to the date and time of the customer's mail acceptance. To complete the process, click the run button again. You can keep going with the process as long as you have a certain amount of activities in the activities area. Following the procedures, you may check the modifications in the Marketing Automation module's dashboard under the newly formed campaign.
You may use the CRM module to get a detailed and comprehensive overview of lead management, as well as to look at your leads and efficiently communicate with them in order to maintain a strong link with them and convert them into customers.
