Add to list for a mtracking originated lead

Hello,



I’ve just installed Mautic and I’d like to set up a campaign where leads are first acquired with website monitoring via mtracking.gif .

Most of the visits on the site originate from external mail marketing, passing the email as a GET parameter, so I can call the mautic website tracking with the email of the visitor http://mauticinstallationsite/mtracking.gif?email=user@myemail.com , expecting to generate a non-anonymous lead for further email actions (without compiling a mandatory form).



The leads are correctly stored on mautic (as non-anonymous, with only the email filled ), but I don’t figure how to associate them to a smart list - the campaign builder seems only to start acquiring data from existing lists or forms , not from “unassociated” leads originated by mtracking.gif



Please, can you help me?

HI Superedo

There’s a few ways you can work with lists. First make sure you have the list cron job set up and running:
https://www.mautic.org/docs/setup/index.html

Then consider a few different use cases with lists:

  1. If you’re sending emails with a campaign, consider adding an action to push the lead to a new lead list automatically. You can do that right within a campaign. That will segregate your leads.

  2. Using the mtracking.gif, you can update a lead field automatically:

https://www.mautic.org/docs/leads/lead_monitoring.html

You can create a new lead field like ‘website_source’. Then add to the tracking gif:

$d = urlencode(base64_encode(serialize(array( 'url' => $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'title' => $pageTitle, // Use your website's means of retrieving the title or manually insert it 'website_source' => 'My Website' // Use your website's means of user management to retrieve the email ))));

Then create a smart lead list which filters on that lead field.
