How to use ActiveCampaign Sales Actions in Microsoft Dynamics 365

Available on the following plans:

  • Professional
  • Enterprise

Sales Actions are page-level components that let you perform ActiveCampaign actions right from your Microsoft Dynamics 365 account.  

About Sales Actions

Sales Actions are located in your Microsoft Dynamics account. They appear on profile records for all leads and contacts who have been synced through the ActiveCampaign Microsoft Dynamics integration.

Sales Actions include:

  • Add to Marketing Automation
    Using this will add a synced lead or contact to an automation in ActiveCampaign.
  • Add to Email Campaign
    Using this will send a one-off campaign to the synced lead or contact.

Sales Actions requirements

Before you use Sales Actions, we require the following:

  • The ActiveCampaign Microsoft Dynamics setup is complete, and user permissions are granted. This is done in your Microsoft Dynamics 365 account
  • Leads and contacts are synced between both platforms through this integration. These actions only appear on profile pages for synced leads and contacts
  • The following label is added to all automations and campaigns in ActiveCampaign that you wish to use with ActiveCampaign sales components: D365

    If this label is not added, you will not be able to use these actions.
