Create Campaign API


Create Campaign API



Sorry if this question has already been answered, but I couldn't find it.

Is it possible using the API, clone or copy a draft e-mail based on one of Constant Contact's templates and then send it?


Using the API samples I've been able to create a custom one, but not copy from another e-mail campaign.


Thanks in advance,



Hi Hugo,


No need to apologize.  Right now we currently don't have a way to copy existing campaigns through the API or create campaigns using Constant Contact templates through the API.  You're not seeing it because it's not there, for the time being.  Sorry for the limitation, and I will pass this onto my product development team.

I would love that too. It would save me a ton of time.

Is there an update on this? Can you still not clone a campaign?



At this time we still are not able to expose any functionality regarding template based email campaigns in the API.  Apologies for this limitation.  We are actively exploring what it would take to expose functionality around template based email campaigns but we do not have any timeframe on this endeavor.  For the foreseeable future we will continue to only be able to support custom code based emails through the API.
