#4308 - SugarChimp training

Closed General Question created by Ursula Gonthier a year ago

Hi there, I am a temporary acting CRM Manager. We are using a SugarChimp integration to connect MailChimp to our CRM. We are having serious issues with contacts being unsubscribed and I am very cautious about deleting any target lists. We have a paid MailChimp plan (Cochrane Collaboration) and SugarChimp professional.
I would like support with syncing and de-syncing target lists, and managing contacts.
Are you able to provide training?
Many thanks,
Ursula Gonthier

    Hi Ursula,

    Happy to help. The most common reason for unsubscribed contacts is deleting a Mailchimp audience before removing the sync between Mailchimp and Sugar. You can see more about this here:

    I'm happy to walk through this issue and provide some insight on how the integration is intended to work. You can schedule some time that works for you using the link here:

    Hi Ursula,

    It was great to chat with you today and I'm glad we were able to chat further about the integration. As we discussed, if a Mailchimp Audience is syncing to Sugar, you'll need to first remove the sync from the Health Status page prior to deleting the audience from Mailchimp.

    In regards to the globaloptout setting, the options available are in the support article we referenced but there are some examples of how that works in person here:

    If you were to set globaloptout to 0, then unsubscribes and cleaned emails just wouldn't be reflected in Sugar's email address field. You could, however, reference the SugarChimp dashlet for up to date information. Here's an example of how that would look: Since this makes a real-time call to Mailchimp, this can be relied upon for up to date information on subscription status. We didn't chat about whether or not you have the dashlet installed, so just in case you don't the instructions for installing can be found here:

    Please let me know if you have further questions as you explore what works best for you.
