Adobe constantly evaluates product capabilities to identify older features that should be replaced with more modern alternatives to improve overall customer value, always under careful consideration of backward compatibility.

To communicate the impending removal/replacement of Campaign Standard capabilities, the following rules apply:

  1. Announcement of deprecation comes first. While deprecated capabilities are still available, but they will not be further enhanced, nor documented. 
  2. Removal of deprecated capabilities will occur in the following release at the earliest. Actual target date for removal is announced in this page. 

This process gives customers at least one release cycle to adapt their implementation to a new version or successor of a deprecated capability, before actual removal. 

Deprecated Features

This section lists features and capabilities that have been marked as deprecated with latest Campaign Standard releases. Generally, features that are planned to be removed in a future release are set to deprecated first, with an alternative provided. These features and capabilities are no longer available for new Campaign Standard customers.

Customers are advised to review if they make use of the feature/capability in their current deployment, and make plans to change their implementation to use the alternative provided. Please refer to the target removal date to plan your environment and project updates accordingly.
