We have been hearing about this for quite a while, it is finally launched – the new Marketing module for Dynamics 365. This has been released to public preview meaning you can access this and start using it today.
To enable this public preview feature go to https://trials.dynamics.com/Dynamics365/Preview/Marketing Specify your email address (that is used to login to Dynamics 365 as an admin) and your phone number. It will walk you through a brief setup process and enable the preview. Note: It takes a while to provision this module (up to an hour). Also, we recommend enabling this in your sandbox or other non-production system to test before deploying to production. Let us know if you would like assistance getting the marketing preview setup in your Dynamics 365 system.
For other previews:
Go to Settings > Administration.
- Choose System Settings, and then click the Previews tab.
- Read the license terms, and if you agree, select the I’ve read and agree to the license terms check box.
- For each preview feature you want to enable, click Yes.
Pricing – I spoke to Microsoft, no pricing is available yet… stay tuned.
