In one recent project, there was a requirement to embed a dynamic image on a ClickDimensions email. We researched on this and found that the only way to have dynamic images is to store the image URL in the Dynamics CRM field and then use this field in the email template.

In this blog, I will describe how we can embed dynamic images on ClickDimensions email.

How to Embed Dynamic Images

  1. Create an email template and select Block Editor as the editor type.

  1. Delete the contents of the URL field and type in the name of the field from where image URL will be pulled (this is the Dynamics CRM field which stores the image URL). Click on Ok and the image will disappear. However, the image will be replaced in the actual email.
