My goal is to replace a free Mailchimp account with mautic. My mailchimp integration is basically just capturing email on a newsletter form and storing those contacts.
How I went about this in Mautic:
- I created a custom lead field for double opt in. boolean.
- I created a landing page for confirmation of opt in.
- I created an email asking the user to confirm double opt in. This email has a single CTA linking to the landing page.
- I created a form to capture email. I set actions on the form to update the lead’s email field with that of the form. I set a second action on the form to send the confirmation email to the lead.
Running through this, the lead email field is updated and the confirmation email is sent. The confirmation email does contain the link to the landing page.
The problem is that I can’t figure out how to update the double opt in field on the lead to true when they hit the landing page. There are no actions for a landing page.
Assuming I’m doing something wrong and trying something else, I created a campaign with this same flow. Interesting the campaign let’s me modify lead lists. I’ll try just putting them in a double opt in list. I set up the campaign and publish it. I run through some tests and the campaign always says 0% for every step.
Am I trying to create a use case that is more advanced than the Beta? Am I missing something?
