Benchmark is a powerful engagement tool used by small to medium enterprises around the globe. With this simple email marketing solution, you can engage subscribers, target an audience, send beautiful, responsive emails and track results.. Below you'll find detailed information, specifically for Benchmark integrations.

Supported Benchmark integrations

Authorizing Benchmark

We need your Benchmark API key

If you already authorized Benchmark accounts in the past or in any other PieSync integration, you'll be able to skip this step and choose from your CONNECTED ACCOUNTS.

Supported Conditions/Filters [IF]

You can sync one LIST per connection - PieSync needs you to authorize each Benchmark LIST separately

  • FIELDS (INCLUDING CUSTOM FIELDS)
  • ALREADY EXISTING IN APP YOU SYNC WITH

Supported Actions [THEN]

  • UPDATE FIELDS (INCLUDING CUSTOM FIELDS)

Default Field Mapping

Depending on the other app you're syncing with, you'll see a number of standard Benchmark fields being mapped. For instance, a connection with Google Contacts will look something like this:

PieSync syncs the default name field(s) that come with the apps. Sometimes they have a different structure in both apps you connect. E.g. first and last names are separate in app A and joint in a single field in app B. In the background, PieSync joins first and last names together from app A to B and separates them again from app B to A. Our algorithm is smart about which part it updates in app B.

Customizable Field Mapping

You can custom map any of your additional Benchmark fields that aren't included in the default mapping yet. Bear in mind a mapping between two fields can only exist if the types of fields are compatible. We don't support Benchmark custom fields. More information on Customizable Field Mapping here

Additional Options

Syncing Unsubscribes and Deletions is not supported for Benchmark integrations.

The availability of additional sync option is app and connection dependent. If the feature box (screenshots above) is not there to tick, it's simply not possible. We need to be able to detect deletions on one side and at the same time be able to create add a segment 'PieSync Trash' or 'PieSync Unsubscribes' on the other side.
