ALL FEATURES EXPLAINED: All our features/functionality explained in detail - no app-specifics.

iContact is email marketing app, that allows you to create, send, segment and track emails. iContact makes it easy for SMEs to choose from their collection of results-orientated features to suit any budget.

Below you'll find detailed information, specifically for iContact integrations:

Supported iContact Integrations

Authorizing iContact

  1. To be able to connect to your iContact account, we need you to grant PieSync access to your data. In order to do this, go to this link in your iContact application and enter 19ef0dc6e6e211ddae813605715932cc as Application ID. Provide the password that you've entered below.

  1. Next to that, we would also require your iContact username, which you use to log into your application.
  2. Choose the iContact account you want to sync with.

  1. Choose the iContact Client Folder you want to sync with. In case you don't have an agency account (and hence don't have multiple folders), you can just click Next.

If you already authorized iContact account(s) in the past or in any other PieSync integration, you'll be able to skip the first part of the authorization and choose from your CONNECTED ACCOUNTS.

Default Field Mapping

Depending on the other app you're syncing with, you'll see a number of standard iContact fields being mapped by default. For instance, in a connection with Salesforce, the default field mapping looks 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 your iContact Custom Fields and any additional standard fields that aren't included in the default mapping. 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 iContact integrations on the PieSync platform that support our deletions sync.

Syncing Unsubscribes

You have the ability to sync unsubscribed contacts by selecting specific filters or actions from the PieSync Rules.

For this particular case, we updated an Accepts Mailing field in Salesforce to have an easy overview.
Thanks to the feedback we have already received, we created a list of popular apps that we’re going to work on very soon.
