To configure global settings:

    SM UG config custatts

As many of the options included in global settings are legacy settings, the sections below describe only the non-legacy settings:

Identifying Your Account Contact Information

Establish your organizational information on the General tab, including primary contact and corporate address. The address you identify here will be added to the default merge tag that is included in your email campaigns.

Setting Default Merge Tags for Emails

On the Email tab, set default values for the following common merge fields: FirstName, LastName, and AccountName. This allows you to have default text displayed in your emails when these fields have no values. For example, if you set the default value for FirstName to "customer", and you send an email to a contact record that does not have a value in the FirstName field, your salutation will appear in your email as "Hello customer" instead of "Hello [blank]".

Setting a Default Email Compliance Address

If your organization requires that all emails be copied to a default compliance address for archival (e.g. compliance@companydomain.com), identify this address in the Email Compliance field on the Emails tab. All emails sent from Sugar Market will automatically be sent to this address. It is recommended that this address is only used for compliance purposes.
SM UG Config emailmergetag

Managing Your Available Languages

You can manage the languages available to be enabled by users in the Language section under the General tab. The topmost language in the Enabled Languages list will be set as the default language. Use the following guidelines when selecting languages:

  • Enable individual languages by clicking the right-facing arrow with the available language selected.
  • Select multiple available languages by holding the keyboard CTRL key while making selections. 
  • Add all available languages by clicking the double right-facing arrow.
  • To reorder enabled languages, select the language you wish to reorder and use the up and down arrows to change the language's order.
  • To remove languages from the Enabled Languages list, select the language and then click the left-facing arrow, or click the double left-facing arrow to remove all enabled languages.


Click the Save button at the top of the page to save your changes.

Managing Your Unsubscribe Page

You can set up your Unsubscribe Page on the Unsubscribe tab, though you can also use a standard landing page for this purpose. This page is displayed to your leads when they opt out of your communications and allows them to either select specific types of communications they do not want to receive or all communications. 

To create or edit your unsubscribe page:

  1. Design the page in the editor available in the Unsubscribe Body section. You can use the editor tools available in the Design view, or code your own in the HTML view.
    SM UG Config unsubdesign
  2. Add any information to be displayed below the Submit button on the unsubscribe page in the Unsubscribe Footer section.
    SM UG Config unsubfooter
  3. In the Email Address Suppression Lists section, identify the suppression lists to which the contacts should be added for each unsubscribe option on your page. You can select existing suppression lists or create new lists in this section.
    SM UG Config suppresslists
  4. Click the Save button at the top of the page, and then click the Test Unsubscribe Link button. The page displays in a separate window as it will appear to your contacts.

Note: If you encounter an error when using the Test Unsubscribe Link button, then either their SSL certificate has not been set up for your account, or your CNAME has not yet been added to your internal DNS. Consult with your internal IT department or DNS administrator for assistance.

Configuring Regional Groups for Lead Routing

Sugar Market's Geos feature allows you to intelligently route new leads based on your regional settings. When your contacts submit a Sugar Market form, you can assign the record to users in a particular region or territory. For example, you can create a 'Southeastern States' Geo of all states in the southeast region, a 'West Coast' Geo broken down by all states on the west coast, or an EMEA geo with all countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. You can import lists of countries, states, and zip codes into your Geo for quick and easy setup. 

To set up a new Geo:

  1. From the user menu, click "Admin".
  2. In the Administrator section, within the User Administration tab, click "Geos And Lists".
  3. Click the New button at the top of the page.
    SM UG Geo new
  4. From the Lists dropdown, select the list that corresponds to the type of Geo you want to define. The selection here populates the Type field below.
  5. In the Name field identify a descriptive name to help identify the Geo, and then click the Create button. The Geos Attributes page displays.

    • Quick Add: Add multiple list items with text separated by semicolons, and then click the Save and Return button.
  7. When you are finished adding list items to the Geo, click one of the Save buttons at the top of the page.

Refer to the User and Role Management page for information on assigning users to Geos.

Granting Sugar Market Access via IP Address

In addition to user accounts, you can control specific types of access to your Sugar Market account and landing pages by IP address. IP Address Rules allow you to set access rules on a single IP or range of IPs for various activities, including web analytic tracking, CRM access, platform login access, and landing page access.

To define IP address rules:

  1. From the user menu, click "Admin".
  2. In the Administrator section, within the General tab, click "IP Address Rules".
    SM Admin ipaddrules
  3. Click the New button to create a new rule.
    SM Admin newipaddress
  4. Enter the beginning and ending IP address in the range. To identify a single IP address, enter the IP address in both the Begin and End fields.
  5. Select an Action from the dropdown:
    • Allow CRM Access: This allows users with the identified IP address to access the Microsoft Tab or the Sugar Market s-Control. This feature is used in conjunction with the CRM config tool. By default, the CRM config tool allows all access. You must configure the CRM to Block Access via IP to enable this action.
    • Block Landing Pages Access: The landing page visitor will encounter a notification that the landing page is no longer available. This is a useful feature for blocking your competitors.
    • Ignore Web Analytics: The web activity will be completely removed from the tracking table. Due to the real-time nature of the web activity board, you may briefly see the web hit, but it will be removed during processing. This is usually within 15 seconds of the hit occurring.
    • Allow Login Access: By default, Sugar Market will allow access to all IP addresses. If you identify one or more IP addresses with this action, then Sugar Market will use the IP rules for site access at all times.
  6. Ensure the Status field is set to Active, and then click the Save button.
