Time Zone Checker
Oracle Marketing Cloud - Eloqua
Use the Time Zone Checker Cloud Action to better manage a campaign or program workflow by allowing or restricting Eloqua Contacts to move through a step based on the Contact's time zone. You can pass them onto the next step within 15-minutes of the user's time zone or within a time range.
The app requires a time zone offset value stored within an Eloqua Contact field. If you haven't appended time zone information, check out our companion Time Zone Appender app.
