Using MS Access or SQL Server to create birthday emails

We have lists of members with their birthdays and would like to send birthday wishes.  Not seeing this function in ConstantContact, I think we could code this in MS Access or T-SQL but need to know how to pass the recipient name to ConstantContact.

We don't offer a built in birthday email feature, as you mentioned.  You have a few options available to you:

 

  • Export your email list monthly/weekly/daily for whever the birthdays are you want to schedule, import that list and send out a email manually for those people.
  • Build an integration that does this importing for you using our public API.  Continue to manually create and send the email campaigns.
  • Bulk an even more robust integration that also creates the email campaign and schedules it for you using our public API
