Improved MailChimp integration

Although I know you recently added some great email functionality, for mass emails I really need the full features in MailChimp. The problem is that your MailChimp integration barely sends anything to MailChimp...just the contact name and email. At a minimum, I often need the organization they work for. It would be great if you could customize the fields being sent, and at a minimum, for the integration to simply send lots more fields.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. If more customers vote and comment for improved Mailchimp integration, we can definitely consider it for our product roadmap. I'll also direct any related posts here. That way, you can show your support by adding to each other's votes and comments. Thanks!

  • I agree with matthew! even if it were just the organization and a category for their group segmentation, that would be a huge improvement.

    I also noticed that the leads section does not allow you to send contacts to mailchimp. a big reason why we selected insightly is because of the seamless integration with mailchimp that allowed us to save time by not duplicating data entry across multiple platforms. now that we are incorporating leads into our workflow, it is critical that we can send leads that sign up for our newsletter to mailchimp directly from insightly.

  • Sending contact to Mailchimp from our leads section should really be on your roadmap. As a new company, I should be able send mass email to sell my services and then keep the contacts that are interested. Otherwise I don't see the utility of the leads section.

  • Another vote here.  Our contacts are already IN Mailchimp. So using Insightly to filter and send across is pointless without the ability to include a custom field to create a segment in MC.

    We received several requests and volunteers for our MailChimp study. At this time all available spots have been filled.

    Thank you for your interest!

  • I agree with Matthew.

    I need to be able to export/sync Insightly tags with Mailchimp Groups so that relevant emails can be sent to different contacts. Using multiple Lists in Mailchimp is not an option since it's cumbersome plus the same subscriber across 2 (or more) lists counts as 2 subscribers, which can push you to a more expensive Mailchimp plan.

    I know that Capsule CRM syncs tags to Mailchimp Groups so I know that it can be done.

  • A field mapping feature for tags to groups would be fantastic.

  • Hi Anil,

    You're right, Tags were not included as a feature to be exported to MailChimp. I would encourage you to add it to our Ideas & Suggestions.

  • We need this expanded capability as well. Being able to move over the state field would be very helpful since we do most of our segmenting in Mail Chimp by state.

  • I fully agree with Matthew, it is important that other fields could be selected for the export in particular the organisation (company).

    Furthermore it would good if I could export all mailing lists for a contact at once. At the moment you have to do 3 exports for 3 mailing lists.

  • Can we have the ability to export organisations to mailchimp lists? This really is an essential feature for any business that communicates with a large number of contacts that work for stakeholder organisations.
