Guide: Using Mailchimp with Databox


How to connect Mailchimp to Databox


How to connect Mailchimp to Databox

To connect a Mailchimp Account in Databox, go to  Data Sources > + New connection. Type Mailchimp in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

This will open the  Authorization window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Mailchimp login credentials and authorize the Databox app. 

How much historical data is synced when you first connect Mailchimp to Databox?

When you connect a new Mailchimp Data Source in Databox, no historical data is initially synced. 

Certain Metrics may have more or less historical data available. For example, "by Campaign" or "by List" Metrics may not have historical data synced. For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric, please contact our Support Team at [email protected]

Pro Tip: Once your Mailchimp Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical Mailchimp data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Mailchimp data sync in? 

Mailchimp data is synced in the UTC.

How to access the pre-built Mailchimp Template

 Navigate to Databoards > Template Library
 In the Data Source drop-down list, select  Mailchimp
 To view a preview of the Template populated with dummy data, click Preview
 To pull the Template into your Account and re-populate it with your own Mailchimp data, click Use Template
 Select the appropriate Mailchimp Data Source from the drop-down list to complete the process. The Databoard will be re-populated with data from the selected Mailchimp Account and can be found on the  Databoards page
Pro Tip: Once the Databoard is available on the Databoards page, it is completely disconnected from the public Template. Therefore, you can further customize this Databoard to meet your specific needs using the Designer.
