This article discusses the creation of a Web Template utilising Liquid and HTML code, for displaying individual Event records in a user-friendly manner. Previously, for each new Event, a new Web Page had to be created—a process that wasn't efficient, and might pose a challenge for a non-tech-savvy marketing team.
The improved method involves the creation of a dynamic Event Page, which displays relevant information about the Event as well as a registration form. A notable highlight includes the addition of a hero image at the top of the page, pulled from the Event record within D365 Marketing.
The Event Image field is a default feature on the Event record, but could be hidden, requiring minor adjustments to make visible. After adding the field to your form, the Components section allows the addition of the Image Select Button Control. This allows users to upload images from D365 Marketing or new ones directly, which can be used in emails and displayed on the Event Page.
The implementation of an Event Page in this way significantly simplifies the process of creating events, catering to individuals who may not be comfortable with Web Page editing. Furthermore, it offers a professional appearance, with images that can be easily incorporated into other marketing materials, thereby enhancing overall event promotion.
This post is about creating a dynamic event page using Liquid Web Template for your Events Portal. The goal is to create a page that displays information about the event along with the registration form. To do this, you need to add an image control to the Event record in Dynamics 365 Marketing. Once the image control is added, you can add images from D365 Marketing or upload new ones. After adding the image, you will be able to use it for the event page as well as for emails. Finally, the page should be created using Liquid and HTML.
