Alternatively to Workflows, Adobe Campaign offers a simplified import function that allows the user to manage certain types of import that were defined by an administrator.
The operating principle is as follows: an administrator defines and manages import templates (see Defining import templates). These import templates are then made available to users with simplified views under the Profiles & audiences > Imports menu.
These users therefore just have to select the type of import they want to carry out and upload the file with the data to import. The workflow defined by the administrator is executed transparently for the user, who can access the details of the result of the import once it has finished.
Import data function can be managed by users with GENERIC IMPORT (import) and WORKFLOW (workflow) roles. For more on roles, refer to this section.
Imports can be filtered according to the template from which they were executed, their execution date, and their execution status.
