A comprehensive list of all features can be found on the What’s New in SAP Marketing Cloud release page. The release has the code 2308 with 23 referring to the year 2023 and 08 referring to the month of August.

In this blog we want to highlight some of the features but be sure to have a look at the comprehensive list as well.

Products or events can be mapped to interactions in forms

The Forms and Landing Pages are now able to map events to interactions. With this, you can realize scenarios like event registration and participation without the need of an additional event management tool.

Also, you can map products to interactions in forms. This will support scenarios like product registrations via landing pages.
