Hi,

 

I want to use an Automated Email Series so that when a new user is added to a list, a series of emails are sent to that user. Is there a way to verify if an email was sent to a given user via the API?

 

Another question: Currently, It seems that Campaigns have a "current_status" property via /emails/{campaign_id}. Are Automated Email Series considered to be campaigns available to that api call? If so, what would be the "type" property. In the documentation, I only see: 

 

[Newsletter, Custom Code Email, Announcement, Product/Service News, Business Letter, Card, Press release, Flyer, Feedback Request, Ratings and Reviews, Event Announcement, Simple Coupon, Sale Promotion, Product Promotion, Membership Drive, Fundraiser]

 

Thanks!

Hello @KevinW745,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact's API Support.

 

The Automated Email campaigns are not currently available through our API. They will be added in a future update; however at this time we do not have an ETA.

Thanks for the response!

 

It's fine, there's no rush as we figured out a workflow that works.

Hey Kevin what is the workflow you came up with? I tried to automate this process and I got it to partially work (only when I am authenticated to their UI portal).  a normal website user would't know how to do all that so I am trying to make it within the server but can't find any responses

Hello MichelleG3808,

_

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API.

_

Contacts added by 3rd party forms/integrations/plugins, are able to receive automated emails based on two factors: Whether the email is added to the account with a source of "contact" or "account (which is specified in the code by whichever 3rd party built the integration), as well as whether the automation is a Welcome Email or a List Join series.

_

If using a List Join series, and a contact added to the specified list, regardless of source, will be put into queue to receive the emails for that series.
