I think I'm looking to do something similar -- I want to maintain lists in CC and have web applications provide body content to CC via the API to place into a pre-formatted template and send to the lists of my choice. Is this not possible, and emails can only be created within CC itself?
Currently we do not offer an API for pushing content to email campaigns. As Tom stated, we are always extending the API functionality and that is on the list of feature requests.
I now have a client that needs email content customized daily depending on what the customers have requested. When do you think this feature will be available?
Is it possible to create lists dynamically using Constant Contact API. I am working with PHP wrapper.
My requirement is that a campaign is created which is always binded to a list (list selection depends on the category a user selects - this is custom implementation) but now the problem is that client creates more than one campaign on same category and the corresponding list emails get updated impacting the loss/mismatch of contacts that are supposed to be in the previous campaign.
Is there any API available, so that I can either divide the emails in same list for two campaigns or create a new list dynamically?
Rick, the API we are working on will only allow you to customize contents of an HTML/XHTML-based emails, in other words our custom code campaigns as you see in our UI. I can't give you any specific date yet, but it is what we are working on currently. The API, however, will not allow you to edit contents of a campaign that uses one of our templates so I want to make sure we set the correct level of expectations regarding the API's capabilities.
