Map Interact Triggers to ConvertKit Actions:
Step 1: In the following steps you will have the chance to map a set of ConvertKit actions to individual Interact triggers. A trigger can be, for example, when a quiz taker receives a specific quiz result or answers a specific quiz answer. To open the selection of ConvertKit actions to select, click on the Add Actions button:
Step 2: In the slideout menu, you will see a list of available actions to run in ConvertKit. The available actions are:
- Add to Sequence: Choose a ConvertKit sequence from the dropdown to add new contacts to a specific ConvertKit sequence. Example: For a quiz result trigger, you could connect different results to different contact lists to send autoresponders specific to the quiz result your customers received.
- Add to Form: Choose a ConvertKit form from the dropdown to add new contacts to a specific ConvertKit form. Example: For a quiz answer trigger, you could connect different automations to different answers to run specific automations depending on what a quiz taker answers in your quiz.
- Update Subscriber Field: Choose an ConvertKit subscriber field from the dropdown to update the contact field for new contacts with a specific value. The value will auto-populate with the trigger name, but you can customize this with any value you want. Example: For a quiz result trigger, you could choose the ConvertKit subscriber field "Quiz Result Title" from the dropdown and populate the field with the quiz result title for your quiz.
Step 3: Once finished with one trigger, you can select a different trigger from the left sidebar. When you have set all triggers that you need for your specific setup, be sure to click Save & Continue.
Map Form Fields to ConvertKit Subscriber Fields
Step 1: Here you will find an overview of the way your opt-in form fields are connected to ConvertKit subscriber fields. Default fields (cannot be changed): Email, First Name.
Step 2: For all other fields, choose one contact field from the dropdown that you would like to populate with the form value. Example: mapping Company Name to "Custom Field 1" will populate the value inputted for Company Name into the ConvertKit subscriber field "Custom Field 1".
Step 3: When finished with mapping your form fields, be sure to click Save & Continue. If you find you need to make changes, you may edit the integration settings at any time.
IMPORTANT: If your quiz is already published and embedded, any changes made to the integrations will require you to publish your quiz after changes have been saved.
