Feature of the Month: Email Integrations
Among the new features released this month, Crimson now integrates with Mailchimp and Constant Contact. This integration authorizes Crimson to push a list of subscribers to either email system using segmentation filters under People Search. There are multiple parts to this feature:
Setting Up the Integration
Please note that only Project Admin users in Crimson can add an integration.
1. From the main dashboard, click on the icon for My Account at the top of the page. Select Account.
2. Click on the button in the top-right corner.
3. The information for your organization will appear. Scroll to the bottom and click on the button.
4. A list of available integrations with Crimson will appear. Select which email integration you want to set up:
5. If the integration has already been set up, you will see it listed.
Note: This is also where you can edit or update an integration.
6. If the integration has not been set up, a new browser tab will open and ask you either log into Mailchimp or Constant Contact.
7. Once the integration is successfully authorized, you can start setting up email lists.
