E-mail Scheduling using Constant Contact API Connection

0 Votes
Hello, I am presently using (formerly Integromat) an online integration software. They have a lot of built-in API automation connections that I'm trying to make use of. Right now I'm trying to get an automation that detects a new video upload in Dropbox within a folder, renames the video file and then shares it to a contact list in Constant Contact via Creating a new E-mail Campaign, mapping the dropbox link in some html for the e-mail, and Scheduling the Email Campaign. Unfortunately for some reason neither the "Create a new E-mail Campaign" or "Schedule an E-mail Campaign" options don't have a way to map a contact list to the module, and this is stopping the automation from being completed. I am presently working with the support but have not come up with an answer yet, I was wondering if anyone has any insight here, perhaps someone who's familiar with the software or has attempted this before? Every other step is ready to go, this is the only thing that's stopping us from automating this process. Thanks in advance.

Hello KarlG57,


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.


In order to select a contact list for your campaign via API, you’ll need to use the PUT (Update) An Email Campaign Activity request. I’m including our documentation on this request below. I would recommend checking with support to see if this request is available with their integration.


PUT (Update) An Email Campaign Activity:!/Email_Campaigns/updateEmailCampaign...


Please have a look and let us know if you have any other questions!
