In a schenario where you have a dynamic footer with hundreds of rules and you have the copyright sign followed by year, you want to automatically populate that year.

So, in order for you not to manually open the footer and manually change the year, what you can do is populate that value from a field merge. Create a field merge using a datacard with email address as key.

The take the code for that field merge (simply drag the field merge in a new HTML email and you have the code) and add it to the HTML of your footer.

As you see in the image above, the value is being taked from the default value. The dacard you built will always remain empty, with no records in, so when the field merges evaluate it will always have to display the default value.


Next year, you just go and update the default value of the field merge.

Did you know that the Oracle Eloqua platform is undergoing a user experience evolution?

Featuring fresh, lighter, brighter more welcoming feel and some fantastic new enhancements throughout the platform, the new user experience arrived for all users in February 2016.

It's more than just a pretty new interface! Wanna a sneak peek?

Still curious? Read through all of the details/FAQ's about the new user experience that arrived in February 2016 and view our exclusive Customer-Only Briefing session available on-demand now!

PS. If you're not already a member of our exclusive Eloqua Insiders area for customers/partners, you will be prompted to request access to see the Release content. We can grant you access faster if you've updated your Topliners information (profile name/company name), rather than having a generic number as your profile name :-)




We are going to take a look over 3 basic operations available within Segments: intersect, merge and trim.

Our test segment consists of 2 filters: one brings in the contacts who have a country value of "Unites States", and the other has the value AMS in the region field.


In order to perform any of the above operation left click both filters having the SHIFT key pressed then right click. The options are available in the menu. What they do is:

- the intersect will provide a list which is a sum of the common contacts in the 2 selections;

- the merge will provide a sum of all contacts in both lists, meaning it will unite then and remove the duplicates. As you see in the screenshot below, the resulting merge list is not a sum of the number of contacts, but a sum of the unique email addresses in both filters reunited;


- the trim will subtract one list from another. You will be prompted to select the list from which to trim from;


Any resulting lists can be right clicked and exported to an email address (excel or csv) or shared as a shared list within the system.
