Configuring the delivery of a generic treatment with the Send Generic shape


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Use the Send Generic shape to configure and send a Generic treatment.

This shape provides a hook to process actions via outbound delivery mechanisms, other than the ones currently provided by the system (such as email or SMS). Use this shape to output relevant data to an output file or database table for processing by legacy systems.

The following General Configuration options are available for this shape:

Name Purpose
Treatment Name Name of the treatment. This can be used to track and organize the output data.
Key Code Marketing code used to identify the treatment. This value can be output in the output file or table and can be used to track the performance of different treatments.

Delivery Options

Generic treatments can be written to a data warehouse (file or database table) for processing by other systems. Users can enable one or more of these modes at the same time.

The following Delivery Configuration options are available for this shape:

Name Purpose
Write To File Determines whether a record should be written to an output file.
Write To DB Determines whether a record should be written to an output database table.
Select Template (File/DB modes) File or Database Template rule which contains the specifics of what should be output to the file or table. This includes the file or table name, location, header information, and the specific data fields that need to be output. Refer to the Templates chapter for more information.

Wait After Sending

Users can determine whether they would like to wait after sending a generic treatment or proceed directly to the next step in the Flow. The wait options available are the same for all wait-based shapes and are described in the section on the Wait shape.
