What is ClickDimensions?

ClickDimensions is a complete marketing automation solution built exclusively for Dynamics 365 CE – designed to bring together sales and marketing to generate bigger business wins.

Among ClickDimensions features are essential marketing tools including email marketing, campaign automation, web intelligence, surveys, web forms, landing pages and social media marketing. ClickDimensions leverages standard Dynamics 365 functionality- Marketing lists and Campaigns.

Unlike competitors, such as Hubspot, MailChimp and Act-On, ClickDimensions, exists within your Dynamics 365 application. It looks and feels like any other area of Dynamics 365. There is no syncing to an external application required. ClickDimensions enables organizations to bring together all marketing activities, including emails, social media, and events – via Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Since ClickDimensions lives natively in Dynamics 365, new users will quickly learn how to use the powerful marketing features. ClickDimensions continues to deepen the level of integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365 and other technologies.

To access ClickDimensions, navigate to ClickDimensions in the App Selector.

1. Planning

Planning centers around the powerful Marketing Calendar. The Marketing Calendar allows you to see in one place all of your upcoming marketing events – including social posts, events, email sends and campaigns. Users can filter the view to see different types of events and activities. Users can also create new activities from the calendar.

Web Statistics

Have you ever wanted to integrate some of the most powerful features of Google Analytics with Dynamics 365? By embedding a tracking code on your web pages,

With Event Integration and ClickDimensions, you can easily create Event Records (to keep track of hosted webinars and events) and Event Participation Records (to track participation in your webinars and events).

ClickDimensions offers connectors for two event management services for webinar integration:

  • GoToWebinar
  • WebEx

ClickDimensions offers connectors for two event management services for in-person events:

  • Eventbrite
