Supported Constant Contact Integrations


Authorizing Constant Contact

For Constant Contact, We need you to log in and allow access to your account. When you click 'Authorize Constant Contact', a pop-up window appears to request this information. 

Don't worry, though, we treat your data securely with absolute confidentiality!

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




[IF] Supported Conditions/Filters

Choose the filter for each app to define the subset of contacts you want to keep in sync. Setting up more than one rule is available from the Medium plan onward. For Constant Contact, we filter your contacts based on lists or all your contacts at once.

Keep in mind some important side notes in regards to the availability of Multiple Rules. Want to set up more than one rule? Check out here how to do this!

 

Default field mapping

Constant Contact contact records offer ample fields to store contact information. Depending on the other app you're syncing with, a default mapping is proposed. This could look like this, on the left, Constant Contact, on the right, Dotloop.

If you are expecting some Constant Contact fields to appear here and they are not, it is likely the other app does not support this field by default and they will have to be custom mapped.

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 one 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

For now, we don't support Constant Contact customizable contact fields. Therefore, you can only custom map any additional standard 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, and the particular compatibility will determine the direction of the mapping as well. More information on Customizable Field Mapping here.

Additional Options

Syncing Deletions

Currently, there are no Constant Contact integrations on the PieSync platform that support our deletions sync.

Syncing Unsubscribes

Currently, there are no Constant Contact integrations on the PieSync platform that support our unsubscribes sync.

The availability to Sync Unsubscribes/Deletions is app and connection dependent. If the box (screenshots above) is not there to tick, it's simply not possible. We need to be able to detect unsubscribes/deletions on one side and at the same time be able to create add the tag 'PieSync Unsubscribes' or ‘PieSync Trash’ on the other side. More Information on Syncing Unsubscribes here or on Deletions here.
