Anonymous email subscriber matching schedule not running to match BBIS anonymous user with CRM constituent record

The Anonymous email subscriber matching schedule does not run in BBIS when an Anonymous Newsletter subscription is entered with matching information for an existing CRM constituent record.

The Anonymous Newsletter part is a legacy part type that will likely be deprecated in the future.  

To manage email for anonymous users, we suggest using the Email Signup Form from our form engine.  More information about form engine forms are available in our user guide.  Email Signup Form-specific fields can be found on page 10:
