Import from Mailchimp

Import allows you to update existing and create new constituent records in your CRM. There are two different types of Import: Regular and Group

Regular Import allows you to bring in new sign ups and create new constituent records, and update constituent details as they are changed in Mailchimp across your merge fields.

Group Import allows you to add and update Group data to your CRM from Mailchimp into either; Custom Fields, Cons Codes, Consent or Solicit Codes.

For each type you have three different import options:

  • Ad hoc, (one off) – manually triggered
  • Realtime – Process changes and new sign-ups instantaneously and automatically into RE, Altru or BBCRM
  • Scheduled – Set up a specific day and time for updates to be added to your CRM
