What is ClickDimensions?

In a nutshell, ClickDimensions allows you take your Email Marketing and web content and integrate it seamlessly with your Dynamics CRM. For example, you can design emails with us, send them to Leads and Contacts, and get live statistics on who interacted with your message. You can also see Leads and Contacts browsing your website, use forms to generate new Leads and Contactstrack survey responses, and much more.

ClickDimensions in CRM

Since ClickDimensions is fully integrated into CRM, new users may find it tricky at first to spot which parts of the software are ClickDimensions features. Most ClickDimensions features can be found in two sections of CRM: Settings and Marketing.
