Export Contact's Linked Organisations to Mailchimp

Essentially what it says in the topic title. 

 

I'd like to be able to export the name of the organisation that is linked to a contact to Mail-chimp alongside all the standard contact data. The organisation I work for liaises with a large variety of organisations and each organisation has their own preferences that affect our communications strategies. 

It is quite a significant flaw in the mail chimp integration that we cannot have contact details and their place of work exported to mailchimp.

It would be great to have the organisation name, the role/title of the person at that organisation, and the postal addresses of the individual/organisation as fields that can be mapped to mailchimp.

  • Yes! This is very much needed. It's such a hassle to export a csv and then upload to MailChimp all the time.

  • Good to have a response to this finally.. I agree it is hugely annoying to have to do that.. it's like going back to using old microsoft access with mailchimp again.

  • I'm interested to see this too. At present when I import a contact only the email, first name, last name and group is synced. I'd like to see the company name and phone number brought across too. Is this possible?

  • It is not possible to have the company name pulled through at this time, as it is a linked field within insightly. The only work around is to create a custom field text field and essentially have to duplicate information across the contact. You can export the phone number as long as it matches up with a mailchimp field.

  • I second this - It is extremely frustrating that you can not export linked organization or roles; especially when you are a B2B company those are very important data points.

  • Actually, it's funny that a piece of such an elementary information missing in data migration. Data migration should cover all default data fields for MailChimp like an organization name, phone numbers, postal address etc.

  • Plus 10 vote for this most basic feature. It is kind of unbelievable that people have been asking for this for years now and Insightly is just ignoring a glaring hole in their product. It is so ridiculous that it makes me want to switch to a new CRM. Do they actually read these comments? This seems like an extremely easy thing to fix. I mean if you export a list of contacts as a CSV, every field and its mother are on the list, so why not Organization on the Mailchimp export? Makes no sense.

  • Yeah, Insigthly's site development along to listening their customers really sucks. They made a new layout which I found no better than the previous one - it's still not intuitive and not easy to use and overviewing many elementary aspects of convenient usage.
