Check the status of a transactional send in Microsoft Dynamics

Learn to check your result message status after your transactional send is sent.


After you create a transactional email campaign and a workflow, you can check the result message status of your transactional send in Dynamics.

Check a result message status in Microsoft Dynamics

To check the status of your transactional sends:

  1. Go to Dynamics 365 > Dotdigital > Email Campaigns.
  2. Select a campaign.
  3. Go to Related > Related - Common > Transactional Sends.

The Administration > Result Message area shows the result message status:


When a transactional send is sent, we update the Date Sent value with the UTC time. As transactional sends are sent as receipts meet defined criteria in the workflow, by design we don’t update the email campaign status which is set to Unsent.


Fix an unsuccessful send

  1. Review the Result Message status before doing another send.
  2. Do another 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 is trying 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.

    To learn more about changing the send status, check out the section Create your workflow in Dynamics.
