Eloqua - Can I use Eloqua to send to a WiscList, Google Group or Office 365 group?

Details on if Eloqua can send to a WiscList, Google Group or Office 365 group.

Using Eloqua to send an email to a distribution list or group is not recommended for three reasons:

  • A major benefit of using Eloqua is being able to track interactions. By sending tracking code for one person to a list of many, you will not have useful analytics.
  • Due to how Eloqua sends email, and listservs and groups handle subscriptions, no emails will be delivered to the list or recipients.
  • WiscList does not allow messages large messages (e.g., image-heavy emails larger than 5 MB) to be distributed. Most Eloqua emails will be too large.

This use is not supported.

However, some units do use multiple tools for separate messages. For instance, a department may use a Google Group to forward an email about scholarships to students in their major. Then they may use Eloqua to create and send their weekly newsletter. Having a suite of tools to use for different purposes may be effective for your group.
