The solution we are working on is indeed a full integration with ConstantContact with ESE. ESE already has the customer, contact and contact list (project) features. We are also linking up with other systems like MailChimp and HubSpot. We are using the ESE SDK to make the modifications in ESE. For the integration we have the following features: Mapping of the ESE fields with the marketing tool fields (the user has the option to map the ESE contact fields with the ConstantContact fields. ESE also has the option for CustomFields), in this case it also would help if there is an API to get the metadata for the contact fields including the custom fields and their label. Now we have a list of the contacts fields hardcoded including the available 15 custom fields without the label. Bidirectional syncing of the contacts and contact list. The contacts and contct lists from ESE to ConstantContact is real time, the import is done via a background job. This works fine. In the contact application and contact list application in ESE a hyperlink to the contact page in ConstantContact. Which is ok if this is opened in a new tab. MailChimp also required to contact to be opened in a new tab opening in an ifram is blocked, HubSpt allows opening in an iframe, so we can open inside the ESE application. Additional reporting in ESE based on the data imorted from ConstantContact. ESE has the option to add your own SSRS reports. So the more data we can pull in the more extensive our reports can be.

We are building an integration between Exact Synergy Enterprise (ESE) and ConstantContact where contact lists and contact are synchronised between both systems. As one of the features in ESE we want include a hyperlink on the contact page in ESE which links to the contact in ConstantContact. For the contact list in ESE we also like to add a link to the contact list in ConstantContact. The contact link would be for example https://contacts-ui.constantcontact.com/ui/accounts/1116795674090/contacts/f55cabf0-cddb-11e3-8274-d4ae527b8c41 Is there a way to get the contacts guid (f55cabf0-cddb-11e3-8274-d4ae527b8c41) from the API? The API gives the contact id which is a number but not a guid. The guid for the email address is similar but different f55cd300-cddb-11e3-8274-d4ae527b8c41. For the contactlist the hyperlink would be like https://contacts-ui.constantcontact.com/ui/accounts/1116795674090/contacts/?status=all&override_default=true&list_ids=f4c96ca0-cddb-11e3-8274-d4ae527b8c41. When using the ContactList API also only the numeric id is passed on. For both contact and contact lists is there secondary url which can be used to launch the contact page and contactl list page using the numeric id instead of the guid? Or is there a way to retrieve the guid via the API?
