get a bounce report from an email campaign

 Hi,


Is there a way to get a report (may be in csv) for the all the bounced list from a campaign? Our campaign is scheduled to run every week, so i would need to set up an automated process to get the bounce report the next day after it runs. 


Please let me know if this is possible. 


Thanks.

Hi Sid,   Definitely possible

Hi Sid,


 


Definitely possible to get a list of all the bounces for a single campaign.  We offer all of our Campagn specific data through our RESTful WebService API in XML format.  Basically, the request format would be:


 


https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/{username}/campaigns/{campaign_id}/events/bounces


 


This would give you a full list of all the boucnes for the campaign with the ID of campaign_id.  Full list of campaigns and their IDs can be retreived here:


 


https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/{username}/campaigns


 


Details on these resources can be found here at our Campaign Documentation and Campaign Events Documentation.

Thanks Dave

Cool. So, the result that gets returned from const and contact is an xml. Now, all I would have to do is get the data from an xml file and output it the way i want (csv, xls) and so on. Thanks once again.

Field names in xml file

Hi Dave,


 


Since our campaign hasn't started yet, I don't have any bounces to check the xml file. But would the field names be the same as what they are in constant contact. Like would the outputted xml file have Email Address, First Name, Last Name, Custom Field 1..the fields that constant and contact provide. Or would they be the different. I would need to program my piece in place so that can be used once our email campaign starts running.


Thanks for all your help.

Re: Field names in xml file

Field names would remain the same. I can certainly provide you some sample XML but I am a little confused about what it is that you're looking for. Are you looking for a campaign that has bounces, or the specific events page for bounces, or a contact that has shows bounces? There are a few different ways to look for bounces so I'm just trying to clarify so that I can give you the best possible answer.

a particular campaign with bounces

Hi David,


I am looking for the bounces from a particular email campaign. So, basically we are trying to get the customer information like their email and other fields from constant and contact that have bounced. Please let me know if you need further clarification.


Thanks!!
