    Does MailChimp use the person's main email address?  Is it possible for MailChimp to use a different, church created profile field, email address?

    If a person has multiple email addresses, with comma separators, as their main email in Breeze, will MailChimp send to each of the emails?

    Hi Ellen!

    Yes, MailChimp will use the main email address as well has any emails listed in their Breeze profile.

    I'm hoping I can explain things okay.  I have just started with both Breeze and Mail Chimp.  Mail Chimp offerings Lists and Tags as does Breeze.  If I connect to Mail Chimp from a tag to a list then I have several lists and I my price changes based on the combined list price.  But if I can connect Tag to Tag then it doesn't because they are only counted once in the list.  Is there a way to do that?

    Hi!

    Is there a way to link to different lists in Mailchimp? For example, we have an "I'm new" form that is currently connected to a series of automated emails welcoming them to our church. We are also starting another series of automated emails that they can sign up for that is unrelated to the new here emails. Can I sync the people that fill out the second form to a different list in Mailchimp?

    Thanks!

    Hi there! 

    Yes! You can have different or multiple lists in MailChimp. You can have the same tag synced to multiple lists or different tags for different lists. :)

    Is there a way to connect two MailChimp accounts to Breeze?

    I had to force sync between Breeze and Mailchimp. Is there a setting I need to change to make it automatically sync?

    Hi there @hhopper.

    It will automatically sync after your updates, no need to force sync. If you are seeing something different, please reach out to our Support team as we are happy to help! :)

    We found that if we create a Tag (All Partners 2017) and synch to MailChimp, and then a person unsubscribes from this list when we create a NEW tag (All Partners 2018) and synch to MailChimp this person is added to the new list and emailed to. And MailChimp sends them an email. We had thought/hoped that either system would recognize that this person unsubscribed GLOBALLY from any emailings. We realize now that we have an option to created different channels (different lists), and force a person to unsubscribe from each new list/channel. This leads us to believe we must manually mark the record as Do Not Email, or not create multiple lists. Is this correct?

    Yes, you are correct!

    Thanks Emily!  After further reading the page on Mailchimp in the Knowledgebase, I see this (emphasis mine):

    • People who have previously unsubscribed from that mailing list

    This makes sense now, thanks for confirming.

    Many thanks, Mark

    We are having problems with breeze not consistently adding new people and their emails to MailChimp. They are not marked to not receive emails and they have not unsubscribed. I have tried both the automatic and forced sync and it still isn't adding them.

    @ pedeechurch, thanks for letting us know!  I've just sent you an email so that we can follow up and get some additional information from you.  We'll figure out why your people aren't syncing properly :)
