Direct output to template
For Multi-Channel Campaigns, Pega Customer Decision Hub provides support for directly outputting the results of a scheduled run to a configured Database Template rule. In this mode, action processing is bypassed and, as a result, the interaction history is not updated.
To utilize this feature, the marketer can enable the Write Campaign results using a database template check box and specify the desired Database Template rule in the Template field.
After configuring the schedule, marketers can utilize the template link in the Engagement section or the right overview pane to open the Database Template rule.
