Name your Eloqua RSS Email Connection

Login to your Eloqua account

Accept FeedOtter's Request

Eloqua will take you to a login page and ask you to accept FeedOtter's request to connect to your account. This simple, 1-click process should not need any other information from you other than your login credentials.

Test Your Connection

Once you've accepted FeedOtter's connection request in Eloqua, you should be returned back to the Connections page in FeedOtter. 

Here, you'll see your new Eloqua Connection under the New Connection button.

Finishing Settings in Automated Email

There are a few more settings you will be asked to update with each Automated Email campaign. 

Setup your Automated Email Campaign and once you are ready to send, click Publish to Eloqua in the top-right corner.

Publish Eloqua RSS Email

Next, choose the Eloqua Connection we previously setup. You should see Segments appear for you to choose who receives the email.

Segments is the list of people who will receive your email. Eloqua only allows you to select one.

You can paste in the exact name of the segment and click Lookup > click the segment to the right to select.

Then choose your Email Groups.

This allows you to control pre-pending and appending Eloqua header and footer details to your FeedOtter emails. Some customers prefer to use an Eloqua dynamic content block for the footer which works as well. To do this, the user would edit the FeedOtter html template code and insert their Eloqua Dynamic Content token in the desired place, footer, etc.

Advanced Eloqua RSS Email Options

Under the Email Groups information, there are Advanced - Options to select if you have these setup.

Click Advanced Options to display these settings.

If you know what these are, copy the text out of the popup tips you see when you hover over "about...." in the app. Otherwise, you can leave these blank.

Campaign Custom Fields

If you know what these are, you may need to populate certain required custom fields. This can be done by specifiying a string of text that looks like this for example:

{"campaignType" : "Operations","region" : "USA"}

Save and Go!

Now you are ready to send out your Eloqua RSS Email Campaign. Once you've filled out the required settings, click Save Settings and Start Campaign.
Your Automated Email will appear in the Campaign blocks and will send according to the sending schedule you made in your Automated Email.
