Add Eloqua Destinations for Audiences

  • Updated

Context

When you add Eloqua as the Destination for an Audience with Orchestration, you can select one of the following actions to define how you want the new Audience to be created and used in Eloqua:

  • Create New: Creates a new Shared List in Eloqua to use in your campaigns.
  • Use Existing: Allows you to select a Shared List in Eloqua to overwrite. This option removes all people currently included in the Shared List and replaces them with people that meet the Audience’s Selector criteria.

You can only add Eloqua as a Destination for Person member type Audiences.

Tip: If you need to update the Destinations added for an Audience, you must first Deactivate it from the Scheduler tab. Be sure to Activate the Audience after saving your changes to resume syncing.

Next Steps

Click the Scheduler tab to schedule and activate the Audience to start syncing the people that meet the Selector criteria to Eloqua. The first sync takes between 24 and 48 hours to complete and subsequent syncs run nightly. 

Tip: You can remove Destinations for Audiences set to Inactive. To remove a Destination, click the Delete icon Delete_Destination.png.

After the first sync finishes, the Destinations tab shows a dashboard with information about the Audience's status and metrics.

The dashboard shows the following information:

  • Status: The Audience’s current status. Statuses include:
    • Active: The Audience is active and successfully synced during the last attempt.
    • Pending: The Audience is active and is currently syncing for the first time.
    • Scheduled: The Audience is active and scheduled to sync.
    • Inactive: The Audience has never been activated or has been deactivated.
  • Last Sync: The number of people that were added, removed, or skipped from the Audience during the last sync. Demandbase skips and does not add people to the Static List if they do not exist in Eloqua.
  • People in List: The number of people on the Static List selected for the Audience in Eloqua. 
  • Eloqua List Over Time: The number of people that met the Selector criteria and have been added or removed from the Static List in Eloqua over the last 30 days. Click the right arrow icon Show_Dashboard_Graph.png to show this section.
