Active Campaign integration using Zapier

Welcome to the Active Campaign integration! This integration will enable customer information collected through AddEvent RSVPs to automatically be added to your Active Campaign account!

We're excited to announce a Active Campaign integration using Zapier!
label

Whenever you create and share an event with AddEvent, you have the option of turning on RSVP functionality so you can keep track of who will be coming to your events. RSVP forms are completely customizable, so you can collect names, email addresses and any other custom information you wish to know. This information is automatically organized and displayed in your AddEvent account.

Using the new Active Campaign integration, when someone RSVPs for your event, they will automatically be added as a contact in Active Campaign! It’s now easier than ever to keep your contact databases in-sync and improve you workflow efficiency.

Let's get started
label

To get started with the Active Campaign integration, please review the steps below. For more help getting started with Zapier, please visit their Learning Center.

Step 1:

Ensure you have a Zapier account (if you do not, you will need to create a Zapier account).

Step 2:

Once you have an account, you will need to log in. Once you are logged in, please click here to go to the "App Invite" page. Click the Accept & Build a Zap button.

Step 3:

Once you've accepted the public invite, you'll be directed to the My Zaps page. Now click the 'Make A Zap!' button at the top right navigation area.

Step 4:

In the "Name your zap" input field (on your top left), please type in 'AddEvent + HubSpot'. Below the headline "1. When this happens ...", please type in 'AddEvent' in the apps search box.

Step 5:

Once you've found 'AddEvent' in the app list, click on it to take you to the next step.

Step 6:

Make sure 'AddEvent' is selected in the 'Choose App' select box and that 'New RSVP Attendee' is selected in the 'Choose Trigger Event' select box. Click 'Continue'

Step 7:

Now you need to connect Zapier with your AddEvent account. Here you need to use your AddEvent API Token. First, click the 'Sign in to AddEvent' button

Open a new browser window and sign into your AddEvent account. You can find your AddEvent API Token in the "Account" area in the 'Account ID and API Token' section.

Step 8:

Copy the API Token from your AddEvent.com account area, then paste it into the API Token section on Zapier to allow Zapier access to your AddEvent account and click 'Yes, Continue'.

Step 9:

Once you've connected your AddEvent.com account to Zapier, click 'Continue'.

Step 10:

In the next step, you may either 'Skip' or 'Find Email'. This is necessary for Zapier to test the connection by going to your AddEvent account to see if Zapier can find an email.

Step 11:

If your AddEvent account finds an email, you'll be presented with a success screen (confirmation). If no emails are found, that means you don't have any RSVP attendees yet. You can click the 'Skip' button.

Step 12:

In the next 'Do this ...' section, please type in "ActiveCampaign" in the search box and click on the Active Campaign App.

Step 13:

Next, click the 'Choose Action Event' drop down and select 'Create/Update Contact', then click 'Continue'.

Step 14:

Next, please click the 'Sign in to ActiveCampaign' button.
(If you don't have an account, you need to create an ActiveCampaign account).

Step 15:

Connect your ActiveCampaign account to Zapier by entering your ActiveCampaign API Url and API Key, then click 'Yes, Continue'.

ActiveCampaign Developer URL and API Key

To locate your ActiveCampaign Developer URL & API Key, log into your account, then click 'Settings' on the left hand menu area.

Then, click on the 'Developer' link.

On the next page, you will be presented with your API Url and API Key. The Url goes into the 'API Url' Field and the Key goes into the 'API Key' field when authenticating to Zapier.

Step 16:

Once your ActiveCampaign account is connected, click 'Continue'.

Step 17:

Next, please select 'Email' in the 'Email Address' select box. Click the 'Continue' button.

Optional: If you would like the full name, first and last name to be populated into your ActiveCampaign list, scroll down to the Full Name, First and Last Name fields, click the Plus option, and select the fields to populate.

Step 18:

Next, you can send a test to ActiveCampaign or skip the test. It's recommended to send a test to ensure a successful connection and that the data is being added to the ActiveCampaign correctly.

Step 19:

Now, your Zap is ready to be turned on! Click the 'Turn Zap On' button and you're all set! Your event RSVPs will now automatically be added as contacts to your ActiveCampaign list 😎
