Creating Marketing Interactions
You can create Event focused Interactions from a Marketing Event. They will be automatically linked to Contacts that participate in the Event.
You can also create a single Event-focused Interaction from a selected Contact.
- From Marketing Events
A Marketing Event can result in an Interaction. For example, you completed an Email Blast Event and you want to create an Event-focused Email Interaction under each Contact that was sent that Email.
In the image of an Event below its Contact Collection is denoted with (1) and the checkbox with (2).

Viewing Marketing Interactions
Interactions listview displays all Interactions, Including Marketing ones. You can filter the listview to find Marketing Interactions that are linked to a specific Event. To do that, go to the Interaction listview and set the filter to search for specific Event.
Fig 5: Filtering Marketing Interactions by Event
If you want to see all Marketing Interactions, select Interaction Focus in the filter and seach for Marketing Focus.
You can also view Interactions on the Interactions widgets on Accounts and Contacts. On the right hand-side there is a link to the Event or the Lead. If the Marketing switch is enabled then the widget displays only Marketing Interactions, because IBO-focused and Relationship-focused Interactions belong to the Sales module.
