Additional info from ExactTarget.  Just an fyi.  Should help during build out.

---------------------
If we want this table to be sendable and we are going to use Token as the primary key, then I suggest that we include it in the Student Reps table. Let me know your thoughts. Also just to give you a heads up as we talked about briefly on our call ampscript will be necessary for personalization or creating content that relates to both tables in one email. I have included a link to the wiki around ampscript. Please feel free to read through it. If you have any questions I will have to refer you to support or there is a community of developers (employees and customers) at  code.exacttarget.com that is great at assisting with all code related questions.

James - essentially, I believe he's saying to make sure we include our token on the relational table.

Hey James - Now that we have this info from ExactTarget do you think this can be done within the 1.5 milestone? Would be nice to have it then, or within 1.6, depending on your work-load. 

Let us know!
1.5 is a stretch, this is the most complicated part of the switch because it's not even using basket right now. Definitely by 1.6 though, Winston and I have a deadline of late next week.

Adding Jason to this thread.  Talked with him briefly today and I know he's concerned about timing of transferring the from from Responsys to ExactTarget due to the code freeze. Will let him comment on timing/urgency.

Hi James, 

For Jason's program, he has a custom triggered welcome campaign.  The subscribers shouldn't get the blanket one we send.  

Jason and I set the campaign up.  The campaign ID is 1927.  It's in ET under Subscribers > my emails > student reps > Student Reps Welcome + Newsletter Email.

Hey there: I updated the Target Milestone per James's directions.

The main thing we need to do is switch the student reps newsletter to
use our basket library, like you said. It will get the benefits of
everything we've been working on, including ExactTarget. Winston needs
to set up a few things on the ExactTarget side, and I've been planning
to do the switch soon.

Everything else should fall into place once that happens. I'm going to
be focusing on bug 716015 for the switch. We have to do this soon
because Responsys is being turned off, so I'll try to get it done by
Tuesday.

Side note: bug 722564 is blocked on more updates, and I'd recommend
pushing out the current updates and opening a new bug for any other
ones.

Hey James,

Checking to make sure you have everything you need and that we're on schedule for the Tuesday target.

Thanks,

Jason
Looking into it now. I should have everything.
Winston, am I supposed to add the user to the "Student Reps" data extension? I noticed that Master_Subscribers still as a STUDENT_REPS_MEMBER field or something like that, I don't need to update that do I?

Hi James - 

The bulk of their data should go to the student reps ext.  However, I believe we said that subscribers to the student reps newsletter should also go on the master_subscribers table as well - but only if they opted in for the newsletter portion.  I think the reasoning is due to the pref center management.  If one unsubscribes from student reps email, we would want them to have the big picture overview of all their subscriptions.
Initial work has been done. Please test on www-dev.allizom.org and see if the data is being collected properly.

K - just confirming.  I did two tests and my info didn't populate the student reps data extension.  James, I see all your tests - but mine aren't on the table.
The dev site is erroring out, just looked into it and it's throwing an authorization error. IT needs to fix the ExactTarget config values to whatever prod uses. I file a bug about it: bug 735270

Hey James - so far so good.  Jason is testing.  We also need the confirmation email for student reps to fire off.  It's set up in ET.  Campaign ID is 1927.  That's the only missing piece I see right now.

Hey Winston,

I went in to ET to test the data fields as you suggested but I can't locate the same window you showed me yesterday given the directions I have:

Subscribers > Check box for Student Reps > View Data
Bottom right window: Click page 2

Is there a field in the left-side toolbar/nav that needs to be selected to get to the right window. I think I tried them all and closest I could fine was Student Reps test list.

Please advise.
This is done. Winston and Jason, can you all talk and make sure all the right data is being saved?

Hey Winston: I'm not seeing page two of the database. Here are the instructions I have to find the section where we're testing. Please let me know what I'm doing wrong here. Thanks -- Jason

Click Subscribers
In left nav toolbar, expand data extensions, select Contributor Engagement
Check box for Student Reps FLG > View Data
See page one
Bottom right window: see page 2
Check if columnus align with form data

Hey - it's a permissions thing. You don't have access to that folder.  Just moved the data extension to your folder.  Give it a go now.  Sorry about that.

Okay, thanks -- I found it and ran the tests. This looks good to go from my end.
So we're good to push this live?

Please push.

Great work, guys! Thanks for getting this -- and all it entailed -- done this week!
We'll have to wait until early Monday unfortunately, since IT needs to push an update to basket and it's too late to schedule it. 

Glad it's done!

Hey James. Please provide an update on the push. I just did a hard refresh and still see the old form online.

Thanks,

Jason
