After you create a transactional email and send it using a workflow, you can check the result message to see the status of the transactional send in Microsoft Dynamics.

Check a result message in Microsoft Dynamics

  1. In Microsoft Dynamics, go to Email Campaigns under Dotdigital in the left hand menu.

  2. Select the campaign name.

  3. From the email campaign information page, select the three dots menu, then select Transactional Sends.


    The Administration > Result Message area shows the status of the send.


When a transactional email is sent, we update the Date Sent value with the time of send (UTC). For transactional emails sent through a workflow, we don’t update the email campaign status which will remain as Unsent.

Fix an unsuccessful send

To retry a failed transactional email send you should first review the Result Message status to ensure that you have rectified the problem which caused the send to fail.

You can retry the send by changing the Send Status from Failed to Scheduled.

If the Send Status is Scheduled and the Scheduled Send Date is set to now or in the past, then the processor will try to send the transactional sends as soon as possible. If the Send Status is Scheduled, you can set the Scheduled Send Date to a time in the future.

Learn more about changing the send status in Add a transactional send to your workflow in Dynamics.
