#1062 - Can a record be created in Sugar based on someone clicking on a link inside a MailChimp mail?

Closed General Question created by David E Kromann Verified Purchase 6 years ago


We have lists synced and it works

When the mailing is sent out from MC can a click on a link trigger the creation of a lead record in Sugar?

And if yes - where can I find information about how to do this?

    Hello, there are a couple ways you can do this.

    1) Since you are on the professional edition, a SugarChimpActivity record is created in Sugar for each 'click' action. These are retrieved every 24 hours for campaigns. You can use Sugar Workflows (Admin > Workflow Management) to create a new lead when a SugarChimpActivity record is created with type = click. Sugar Workflows may not get you as far as you want on this. Using a custom workflow manager like may get you a lot further.

    2) If coding is an option, the best way to go would be to create a custom logic hook that fires when new SugarChimpActivity records are created. Then you can set any and all the fields of your new lead based on the data in the SugarChimpActivity record.

    Will one of these options work?

The list and field syncing are great, and it allows us to do more sophisticated campaigns that exactly target certain Lead profiles in Sugar.
