Customer Identification Options for an Email Monitor
Use the Identify Customer page in the E-mail Event Monitor window (accessed from the Email and Event Monitoring Manager) to define options for identifying Customers and associating them with the appropriate Customer and Business Object Records.
The options for identifying customers are ordered hierarchically. If more than one option is selected, CSM attempts to identify customers by the first option selected, then by the second, etc. For example, if Find Customers by E-mail Address and Custom is selected, CSM attempts to find the customer by email address first; if it cannot identify a customer using that method, it attempts to identify the customer based on the Custom settings.
To define Customer Identification options:
|Find Customers by E-mail Address||
Look up the sender's email address in the email field of the appropriate Customer Object, and then specify which field CSM should search in Customer objects.
Search All Contact Manager Objects: Select this check box to have CSM search email fields in all objects in the Contact Manager.
It is possible to include other objects in addition to the Customer Object in the Contact Manager (example: External data). If Customers are kept in an External Business Object or other custom object, then check this option to include it in the search.
This is an advanced option for use when email addresses are stored in a non-standard object for specialized use (example: A server list that sends alerts). If these are not requirements, use the Customer - Internal Business Object default.
|Find Customers by Domain||
Look up the sender's domain in a specified Business Object and Field (select the Business Object and Field in the drop-down lists).
The selected Business Object must be configured to have an appropriate field containing the domain. Create a field and either require it to be manually filled or use an Expression to determine the domain from the already-entered email address (which can be done easily using a Text After Modifier).
Use information other than the sender's email address (example: Subject) to identify Customers. In the drop-down list, select what and where CSM should search:
|Default Customer to Use||Select a default customer from the Contact Manager (select the ellipses button). CSM uses the default customer with which to associate Business Objects if the customer cannot be identified using the other methods.|
