Hello, I'm not a developer but I am trying to create a "scope" document for our web developers. Our current website has a sign up form for our newsletter. Upon submission of the form a contact is created in Constant Contacts and is assigned to a specific default Email List. Is it possible to specify what list a contact is assigned to through the API?
The web scope is adding geolocation awareness to our site and we want new contacts to be added to the right list(i.e. US people to US mailing lists and Canadians to Canadian ones). Is this easily done? I understand we'll essentially need 2 forms but can the Email list name be passed through to Constant Contacts via API?
Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact's API Support.
Our API can be used in this manner. You can create a sign-up form that collects the data and then submits it to Constant Contact through the API. Your form can use just a single list or if you want you can code it to use as many as lists as you want.
