Has the process for being able to send Marketo Emails through Salesforce changed with Lightning? Is it true that MSI emails are not supported via Lightning at this time?
What is everyone doing to work around this?
Not true. You can still send individual emails. However, in Classic you could send up to 200 emails at a time from the List view: that doesn't work with Sales Insight on Lightning. See the list of limitations on the bottom of this page: https://docs.marketo.com/display/public/DOCS/Salesforce+Lightning+Experience#SalesforceLightningExpe...
Jep, you're right. But I feel like the power of the email send function through MSI was absolutely in the bulk actions capabilities, and myself and others have had a hard time finding workarounds to find solutions to the lack of support for bulk actions in SFDC Lightning.
Our team's solution was to essentially build a custom object that iFrames in SFDC classic list view without actually switching the user to SFDC Classic. From there, it all pretty much works the same. Not a great solution, but without native support and asking users to manually switch back and forth between classic and lightning (which we have disabled), this was a way to keep them in a mostly-lightning experience but re-enable bulk send. I wasn't involved in the build as I'm not the SFDC Admin, but that was our approach conceptually!
If you find any breakthrough be sure to share with the community! lol
Do you happen to know if there is a way to send a test email when doing a MSI bulk send and not have it send one sample for each record selected?
Sorry if this should be done in a different manner as not directly related to this topic.
Thanks for your time and help!
This is yet another recent Marketo disappointment, this is a key functionality and Marketo failed to keep the product up to date. It's been years since Lihghtining was released, everyone knew about the issues coming in advance and nothing has beed done apart from offering a paid add on. AnneMarie Coveli
It is my understanding that the limitation was originally on the SFDC side of the equation in that Lightning did not support the bulk actions method used by MSI. Several months ago a change was made to SFDC Lightning and I think it supports bulk actions now, but MSI hasn't been updated. I don't blame Marketo for the initial issue since the feature was only semi-recently re-enabled (I think), but I completely agree it's a huge disappointment to lose that key functionality.
I undestand, you do not control third party software, what you do control is your phone, if a massive part of the equation makes a change you lift your phone, call and find a solution or find an alternative, but even the MSI Outlook plugin is out of date.
1. MSI supports sending single and group email (upto 200 emails due to Salesforce email limit) in SFDC Classic
2. MSI supports sending single emails in SFDC Lightning
3. In 2019 Q4, we will release an MSI update to support group emails in Salesforce Lightning.
The product team would love to learn more about how you use MSI today. Please let me know if you'd be interested in giving some product feedback over a quick 30-minute meeting.
