Find your dotmailer API Credentials:

Step 1: Login to your dotmailer account and mouse over the settings menu in the bottom left hand corner and select Access.

Step 2: Create a new API User for connecting to Interact for the first time. Click on the API Users tab and click New User.

Step 3: Here you will find your API Username (Email address) and you can provide a description and valid API Password for this API User.

Step 4: Click Save and you will need these API User credentials for the next step.

Connect dotmailer to your Interact App

Step 1: In the Interact app builder left sidebar, under Connect your email list, choose dotmailer from the list of integrations. Note: You must set-up your opt-in form before you can continue to your integration selection.

Step 2: Copy and paste your dotmailer API Username and API Password and click Connect API.

Map Interact Triggers to dotmailer Actions:

Step 1: In the following steps you will have the chance to map a set of dotmailer 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 dotmailer 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 dotmailer. The available actions are:

  • Send Campaign: Choose a dotmailer campaign from the dropdown to send a dotmailer campaign to new contacts. Example: For a quiz result trigger, you could connect different results to different campaigns to send autoresponders specific to the quiz result your customers received.

  • Update Contact Data Field: Type an existing dotmailer contact data field name in the input box to update the contact data 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 type in contact data field "QUIZRESULT" in the input box 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.

Update Double Opt-In Setting

Step 1: You will have the option to disabled double opt-in for your opt-in form. Check the box to disable double opt-in for your contacts. This ensures dotmailer that you have permission to send users emails.

Map Form Fields to dotmailer Contact Fields

Step 1: Here you will find an overview of the way your opt-in form fields are connected to dotmailer contact fields. Default fields (cannot be changed): Email, First Name, Last Name, Zip Code

Step 2: For all other fields, choose one contact data field from the dropdown that you would like to populate with the form value. Example: mapping Company Name to "COMPANY" will populate the value inputted for Company Name into the dotmailer contact data field "COMPANY".

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.
