  4. Map Form Fields to MailerLite Custom Fields

Find your MailerLite API Credentials:

Step 1: Login to your MailerLite account and navigate to Integrations in the dropdown menu found by clicking your username in the top right corner.

Step 2: Under Integrations, click the Use button on the Developer API.

Step 3: Under the API Key panel you will find your MailerLite API Key. This is required for the next setup steps.

Connect MailerLite to your Interact App:

Step 1: In the Interact app builder left sidebar, under Connect your email list, choose MailerLite 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 MailerLite API Key and click Connect API.

Map Interact Triggers to MailerLite Actions:

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

  • Add to Contact List **Required**: Choose a MailerLite contact list from the dropdown to add new contacts to a specific MailerLite contact list. 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.

  • Update Custom Field: Choose a MailerLite custom 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 MailerLite custom 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 MailerLite Custom Fields

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

Step 2: For all other fields, choose one custom 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 MailerLite custom 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.
