2593001 - An Activity Is Created for a Contact Whose Permission Is Set to Not Be Contacted via a Communciation Channel

We do not have any specific check on the marketing permissions on campaign execution. Activities that are not of type fax and e-mail get created, even if the channel permission is set to opt-out.


It is currently not planned to enhance the functionality to include all communication channels to be checked for marketing permissions in a future release.

You can achieve this functionality by means of a custom solution using the Cloud Application Studio SDK.
