Edit MailChimp from SharePoint List

I am currently using the template that adds new contacts to MailChimp lists whenver a new contact is added in SharePoint. This works great.

 

But I am in need of a flow that will "edit" or "remove" a MailChimp contact from an associated SharePoint list.

 

If someone has done this, could you share your flow with me? or suggest what pieces I may need to make this work.

thanks

Re: Edit MailChimp from SharePoint List

Hi @fonefoo,

 

Do you want to edit or remove a MailChimp contact when the associated contact is modified or removed in a SharePoint list?

For Editing MailChimp contact, please take a try with the following workaround:

  1. Add “When an item is created or modified” action.
  2. Add “Update member information. (V1)”

 The flow works successfully as below:7.JPG

For removing MailChimp contact, there is no trigger to monitor if the item is removed in Microsoft Flow currently, so there is no way to remove a MailChimp contact from an associated SharePoint list.

 

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Edit MailChimp from SharePoint List

Well #1 priority would be to "edit" a contact in MailChimp when editing the associated contact in a SharePoint List.

I'll give the template you posted a try and let you know how it works out.

 

Deleting is less important. If we know of someone who must be deleted we can do that from within MailChimp.

I don't have "Status Value" in my dynamic contention options...

 

I am using the V1 template as suggested.

Hi @fonefoo,

 

 

The Status field is a custom field in my SharePoint list, which may confuse you. Sorry for no explaining clearly.

Re: Edit MailChimp from SharePoint List

ah makes sense now.

what type of data should the custom value be?

 

 

 

I imagine someone going into the sharepoint list, editing someone's email, saving and mail chimp being updated.

to accomplish this how would you suggest I configure the status option?

 

thanks

Re: Edit MailChimp from SharePoint List

I created a column in my SharePoint list called MailChimp.

 

Set it up for choice selection. subscribed, unsubscribed, cleaned, pending

With this setup, I can adjust the subscription status of someone on a MailChimp list from SharePoint.

 

I am also able to edit First or Last name in SharePoint Lists and have it update the contact in MailChimp.

 

What I am struggling with is editing a contacts email address from SharePoint and having it update on MailChimp.
