Customize the workflow to manage your marketing campaigns
In this section we’ll show you how to set up a simple workflow to manage your marketing campaigns using four tables.
- Campaign Type
- Campaign Status
In your marketing database, click the Table List to see all of the available tables in your database. From the list of tables, choose the Campaign Type to open the Table View for that table.
This table is where you can modify the campaign type to customize your workflow.
We’ll then need to modify the list of labels that best reflect your preferred Campaign Types.
Next, we need to add Campaign Status. From the list of tables, choose the Campaign Status to open the Table View for that table.
The Campaign Status table is where you can modify the status values of your Campaign table to customize your workflow.
Next, modify the list of labels that best reflect your preferred Campaign Status types.
Next, we’ll add an account. Choose the Accounts table in the Table List.
Review the column headers in the Accounts table.
A key feature is the ability to change table columns quickly. You can easily add, remove, or rename any column on any table.
