Create Email template with Survey link in C4C

I am trying to create SAP C4C Ticket process in which when the ticket is completed successfully an E-mail has to be sent to the end customer with a survey link using a workflows.

As per SAP standard document "SAP Cloud for Customer Administrator Guide" we can add the survey in the document bases E-mail template using the place holder #SURVEY#.

But if I add this place holder in the HTML file and then upload it while creating the workflow. I cannot find any corresponding field for Survey.

So how can we add a survey link to an email?

    Hi Kartik,

    Is the Survey field for which you are adding a place holder is a standard or a custom field?
    If it is a custom field, you will have to extend the related Ticket Business Object with the custom Survey field.

    Best Regards,

    1 .In fine Tuning, create a Survey Category, e.g. “Customer Satisfaction”, of Type Satisfaction

    2. Create a Survey of Category “Customer Satisfaction” and take note of the Survey ID.

    3. Create a Workflow rule of Type EMail.

    • Define the condition (on save or scheduled) so that the email is sent when you prefer ( Example : 3days after the ticket is Completed)

    4. Create an HTML email template, with a placeholder with the format #SURVEYID#

    • e.g. #SURVEY2744#, if the ID of the customer satisfaction survey was 2744

    5. In the Placeholder Mapping, map #SURVEY2744# to anything, it does not matter

    • For e.g. you can map it to “Ticket ID” or “External ID” because the code will recognize the placeholder and replace it with a link

    6 . Now once the EMail is sent to the Customer , the system

    • Generates an Instance of the Survey
    • Generate the External Link
    • Uses the generated link to replace the Place holder

    7. You can use a href tag in your HTML template file and replace the link with some generic Place holder

    NOTE : This only works for Emails but not for Notifications.

      Hello Saurabh,

      I see a inconsistency in using survey id#'s. You have to use the same Survey ID all places in the workflow and template ...

      If you change then it won't work. Make the necessary changes and try again.

    • HI Rei,

      In the Designing Surveys section the documentation says that you are able to send a Satisfaction survey to a customer. They refer to how you can create this type of survey in C4C.

      The Satisfaction Survey is not an external survey? I assume by external survey you mean another external survey software?

      I wasn't able to figure out how to send the Satisfaction survey in an email.

      Any insight from you or anyone else is very welcome?
