voucher codes (list) in an email workflowSOLVE
Jul 23, 2019 8:31 AM
I have the following task:
A fair in Germany (in this case SPS in Nuremberg) gave me a list of several hundred codes (all unique and only one time usable) in an excel list. Now I would like to set up a simple page on our website where people can enter their name and email adress. After that a workflow should send out a mail with one of the unique codes. In other words, whenever a person asks for a code an "unused" code has to be picked and send to the requester.
Last year it was easier, only one code was valid for all persons.
I can do the whole workflow more or less by hand but then I asked myself ... why shouldn't my marketing automation tool do the job.
I looked in in the community areas but I only found threads regarding automatic generated numbers (I need a kind of pick list) and an idea, so I guess my topic is not that easy to solve, but who knows.
Thanks in advance

unfortunately there was no automated solution available at that time (maybe now?). I bet that there would be at least a "coded" solution but none out of the box.
We ended up by a manual execution. Hubspot generated a "thank you" mail for the customer and another one for a colleague in the back office. The colleague had a template in Outlook where he simply copied in the email and a code out of an excel list (the list we got from the fair).
It was not that much effort because we prepared everything for the colleague but from the point of automation it would be a big help to have a [placeholder] in automated mailings where I can pick items from a stack (list). There are other scenarios where I would use that.
Have a good weekend
