One of my last projects required the creation of several custom tiles for Dynamics Marketing Customer Journeys. As you know, to create custom tile, you need to configure some XML and CSS files. You need to provide information about CSS font-family, which will be used to extract icons and some other parameters. Rather than creating and hosting my own CSS, I decided that it would be nice to check if I can reuse exiting font-family. Dynamics Marketing has already some tiles, so let’s see how to reuse them.

In this article, I would like to provide my thoughts about the latest changes which Microsoft provided for Dynamics Marketing Event Management application. One of the essential points points for me was that Microsoft deprecated Portal APIs. It was evident as they were always telling that this way to extract and update data in CDS is wrong as it might block the functionality of the whole portal, so now they finally created external service with APIs. Let’s go through some important topics about application extensibility as well as other issues which were changed or updated.
One of my customers asked if it is possible to reuse the standard dynamics pacer for e-mails on some other channel. They wanted to use SMS, and it would be great to reuse existing functionality which users know and use. I did some research and will provide the API call which you can use to implement a dynamic content parser for your own channels.
Recently I got a question from one of the customers on how to extract data from Dynamics Marketing Insights as there is no export functionality so far.
