The connector allows you to trigger a review request email based on a select delay period and order status type, after an order is placed. You can also configure other settings, too, like the option to include an anchor to external dynamic content links, which takes customers directly to your review form.
Before you start
Things you need to know:
You must first create the campaigns you want to send as triggered emails within your Dotdigital account.
Your review campaigns must contain an External Dynamic Content block containing your review Dynamic Content URL. Learn more in Get started with Dynamic content in Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce.
You need to make sure you have saved and valid API credentials, otherwise your Dotdigital campaigns might not be available in your store account. Learn more in Getting started with the API.
1. Create a review email campaign
The first step is to create a triggered email campaign that contains an External Dynamic Content block containing your review Dynamic Content URL:
In your Dotdigital account, create a triggered campaign.
Learn how in Create a triggered email campaign.
Insert an External dynamic content block into the campaign with EasyEditor.
Select the External dynamic content block and select the Settings tab.
Enter your Review Contents URL into the address field.
2. Enable and configure the review email settings
Next, you need to configure your review and email settings in your store account:
In your store account, go to Stores > Configuration > DOTDIGITAL > Automation, and find the heading Review Settings.
Expand the Enabled drop-down menu and select Yes.
Expand the Allow review reminder emails for non-subscribed contacts drop-down menu, and choose Yes or No.
If you select Yes, reminder emails are sent to non-subscribed contacts.
Expand the Order Status drop-down menu, and select the order status type. Your selection determines what triggers an email to send to customers.
Expand the Delay Period (Days) drop-down menu, select a delay period from one to 90. The review email is sent after the selected order status type occurs.
Expand the Campaign to send drop-down menu, and select the campaign you created in your Dotdigital account.
If your reviews are displayed on your product pages, expand the Link to product page drop-down menu, and select Yes.
In the Reviews Anchor textbox, enter the anchor used on your product pages for reviews.
This allows customers to select the external dynamic content links of purchased products in your review email, and they are taken to your review form.
Select Save Config.
