Why to integrate Mailchimp?

Talk about doing away with manual entry of your data. That is the first advantage when you integrate MailChimp with Stackby. Because Stackby is all about working on a single platform, you can manage your audiences as well as campaigns on Stack by bringing in the data automatically. Doesn't that seems easier than manual entry or saving you data across different platforms?

How to integrate MailChimp to Stackby

Step 1: Sign up or Login to your MailChimp Account

Step 2: On the top right, click on Account Extras →API Keys

Step 3: Click on Create a Key button and copy the API Key that is created

That takes care of what you need from MailChimp. Now, go back to your Stackby Account.

Step 4: To integrate your workspace on Stackby,  visit Workspace Settings → API Configuration → Create a new integration for MailChimp → Paste your copied API key → Click save. 

Step 5: Download Google Chrome extension - MailChimp Get Campaign ID  to get the Campaign ID for each of your campaigns.

Get your Mailchimp campaign ID 

For getting campaign details you need to get a campaign ID from MailChimp.

There are two ways to get the Campaign ID for MailChimp. Let's take a look at these:

1. If your campaign is in Drafts:

Go the Campaigns Tab in MailChimp -- Drafts

If your campaign is in "Drafts," click on Edit  View Email

You can get your Campaign ID from the URL on the browser tab.

2. If you have already sent out your campaign:

Click on View Report- View Email → download a Google Chrome Plugin here to get your Campaign ID

In your Google Chrome toolbar, you can click on the plugin icon (do make sure Enable is checked in) → Confirm)

When you confirm, you can see your Campaign ID below the plugin.


Next Steps...

Mailchimp helps you pull in Audience and Campaign details via its API that you can integrate via Stackby.

  • Bring the campaign ID from the process described 
  • For example, add campaign ID to a column, and reference it for Campaign details API 
  • Get the JSON data and configure different data keys (Emails sent, Subject line, Preview text, Opens, Clicks, Subscriber clicks, etc.) in different columns. 
  • Bam! Configure it once and see the magic. 

Final output:
