Auto Sync of Drip permissions
Here's a simple guide, taking you through the process of automatically synchronizing the permissions from your Drip account to Hello Retail.
Step 1: First thing you have to do, is to find or generate an API token in your Drip account. Please follow the guide to do so:
Log in to your Drip account here: https://www.getdrip.com/signin and navigate to: Click the ··· (right next to your account name) > User Settings
Inside the User Settings, copy the Api Key at the bottom.
Now save the API Key you just copied, so you can enter it into your Hello Retail account later.
Step 2: Once you have your Drip API Key, simply navigate to Triggered Emails > Permissions, then click the Set up automatic permission synchronization button within your Hello Retail Account:
Step 3: As the next step, you'll have to:
- Select Drip in the Type drop-down
- Paste your Drip API Key into the API Key field.
- A list of accounts that you have access to will be generated. select the Drip account you would like to synchronise permissions from.
- If you want to filter which of your emails to synchronise as permissions, you can optionally do this by entering tags and/or customfields. By default, ALL emails within the selected Drip account gets syncronized as permissions.
It's important that you are aware of the fact that these filters are case sensitive. It's very important that you make sure to input the tags and customfields exactly as they are written in your drip system.
E.g. you might have a Tag in Drip called "first_name". Then it should be entered as "first_name" and not as "First_Name". If this isn't taken into consideration, the filter will not work properly.
Filter by Tags
For the tag filter, an email has to be associated with at least one tag to pass the filter.
Tags are entered in the field as a comma separated list (no space between):
Filter by customfields
For the customfields, an email has to have all fields with the correct value to pass the filter.
Customfields are entered in the field as a comma separated list of key/value pairs (no space between):
Remember to click Save.
You are now done, and moving forward your Drip list permissions will automatically be synchronized on a daily basis.
You have now set up an automatic synchronization for Drip like a Champ! 😇
