1. How to upload your data in your Sendinblue account (Ex : Contacts):
- Log in to Cirrus Shield.
- Click on the Contacts tab.
- Select the View you want to upload (Ex : Leads from France / or All).
- Click on the Upload to Sendinblue button.
- All the contacts present in the selected view will be uploaded in your Sendinblue account.
- The view “Leads from France” will be created in the contact list of Sendinblue.
- Note that only the view “All” is not synchronizable.
2. How can you see the update in Cirrus Shield :
- After a campaign has been sent to a contact list, “Campaign members” are registered in Cirrus Shield.
- And since the plugin was set on the actions “Click”, “open”, and “unsubscribe” then only these actions will make changes in Cirrus Shield.
- For example, if an email receiver open the sent email, or clicks on a link in the email then their respective checkboxes in Campaign Members will automatically change to the appropriate value.
- In case, the user unsubscribed from the campaign, then the Opt Out checkbox field is automatically ticked in the Contacts object for the respective email address.
- If for example we send an email in Sendinblue but the email (the contact) does not exist in Cirrus Shield it will not create the contact automatically in Cirrus Shield.
- If the contact exists but the campaign member doesn’t exist, will it create the campaign member.
Note : Campaigns and campaign members are automatically created in Cirrus-Shield. In other words, the creation of a campaign is done in Sendinblue, and then campaigns and campaign members are created automatically after first email event. Moreover, the ID of a campaign in Sendinblue will be the same as that in Cirrus-Shield.
