User is created now but business wants to sent welcome mail after 24hrs. Is it possible to send in any ways?

Hi Pooja & everyone,

This is a good question in my opinion, I know that this could maybe be done via Emarsys - not using the Welcome email feature in CDC, instead sending the newly registered customer to Emarsys via an API into a Triggered Autoamation, sending the Welcome email from Emarsys.

However if Emarsys wouldn't be in place, I believe other mailing services such as Mailchimp or HubSpot could have such a triggered email capability.

Overall I believe having a dedicated emailing platform (that can assure good email branding and email client compatibility as an example) is worth the investment to assure better communication with customers.

Sure, reading my comment again I'd like to add in, for your use case, that the users could be sent to a tool handling sending out emails (Emarsys, SFMC, HubSpot, MailChimp..), placed into a segment with a column indicating the time they registered (via a timestamp), and have an email automation working with this segment, which would send emails with a 24-hour counter against that registration timestamp column.

This could be a segment with contacts entering in and out, once the people would get the email, they could be removed from that segment to prevent sending out duplicate emails.

This would require an emailing tool that could do the above, not sure whether the HubSpot and MailChimp automations / workflows would be able to handle that, and of course, buying these tools just to send out Welcome emails probably wouldn't make sense, however the use case of these tools could be expanded beyond welcome emails, handling all forms of communication, using CDC puirely as a customer data and consent & preference store.

Do you happen to have any dedicated marketing / customer engagement / emailing tool in place already? I.e. SAP Marketing Cloud?
