You can add participants automatically to your ActiveCampaign lists using the native ActiveCampaign integration.

Not entirely sure how to set up the integration? Make sure to learn about it in our dedicated article first.

You can connect the integration either by navigating to the "Integrations" tab in the navbar or by opening the dropdown menu of your project's card and selecting "Connect" - then just click "Connect" on ActiveCampaign's card.

In order to connect the integration, start by entering an Internal Connection Name, then enter your ActiveCampaign API Key and URL.

Once you have connected integration, you'll be able to see the name of your connection and the email of the ActiveCampaign account you're using.

List ID and Form ID

If you go to ActiveCampaign's integration settings, you can select the List ID to which you want to add your participants and also enter your Form ID (optional).

If no Form ID is specified, by default the new Contacts will be automatically subscribed to your list.

See how to find your Form ID below.

How to find your ActiveCampaign Form ID (optional):

  • Click on Forms in the Dashboard menu.

  • Select the Form you wan't to link.

  • The Form ID number is displayed inside the page URL after "/forms/"

Data mapping for the ActiveCampaign integration

The integration will send email and default properties automatically.

In order for your list to accept more data, make sure to create custom fields in ActiveCampaign accordingly.

In the following sections you'll learn how different data fields are mapped to ActiveCampaign. Once the integration has been connected to your project, you'll find the button "Manage Custom Fields" on the project's integration settings.

Default custom fields that are already predefined by ActiveCampaign:

  • Email

  • First Name

  • Last Name

  • Phone

  • Job Title

Default custom fields that need to be created beforehand:

You need to create the fields in ActiveCampaign and they should look exactly as shown below in the column "ActiveCampaign Fields". The % signs are automatically added by ActiveCampaign, so you don't need to input them.

**If you have multiple calculators in your project you can specify them by ID.

Data from question elements:

Any other collected data fields (eg. from multiple choice elements, free text inputs, sliders, opt-in checkboxes, etc,) can be mapped through "custom field mapping".

Tags

involve.me submissions can not only create custom fields but also assign tags in ActiveCampaign automatically.

In your project’s integrations setup under the “Manage Tags & Custom Fields” button, you can turn on tags for different kinds of submission data:

  • Outcomes

  • Project name

  • Answers from questions

  • When an opt-in checkbox was ticked

Tags will allow you to trigger different actions in your ActiveCampaign account or help you organize incoming data. Please be aware that in order to have tags set you do not need to also setup custom fields, they can be used independently.

Good to know

  • When creating a custom field for the checkbox, make sure it is type "Text Input". Setting it to type "Checkbox" will not work. If the checkbox was ticked, you will get the value "1" and if it was not ticked you will get the value "0" zero.

  • Make sure you choose the right field names & types or your integration may not work!

  • If the subscriber is in an inactive state or has previously been unsubscribed or added to the suppression list, they will be re-added to the list. Also custom fields on existing contacts on the list will be updated.

  • If you have configured an ActiveCampaign integration on a project and you duplicate said project, your integration settings will duplicate as well.

Opt-in Checkbox and GDPR

In order to be fully GDPR compliant, you will need to tick the option "Only trigger integration when opt-in checkbox element was selected" on your integration's settings and add a dedicated opt-in checkbox that sends data over to the integration, to your involve.me project.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to set it up.

If GDPR is of no concern to you, then you can skip this step.

Testing your integration

Once the integration has been set up and connected to your project, it will be time to test it in order to ensure everything is working as intended, learn how to do it here.
