The MailChimp application allows you to synchronize existing MailChimp lists with the email addresses collected on the Cloud4Wi products.
Cloud4Wi Dashboard management
Find the MailChimp application in the Marketplace. To get there, go to Manage → Apps and search in the Marketing or Integrations section.
After clicking on the MailChimp application, you will see a configuration screen that asks for your MailChimp API Key. This screen will appear every time until a valid MailChimp API Key is entered or after you delete an existing key.

After a valid API Key is entered, the following sections will appear:
Lists: copying user details from Cloud4wi to MailChimp
In the List tab, click the Add new rule button at the bottom of the window to build associations between locations in Cloud4Wi and Lists in MailChimp.
You can define as many rules you want and, for each of them, you can set an N-to-One correspondence, then you can copy all the email addresses from one or more locations to a unique location.
The application will add only the contacts of those who have agreed to receive promotional marketing material. The following user details will be copied if present:
- First name
- Last name
- Email address
Once a rule has been set, click on the Start sync button. This applies to the single rule.
A modal window will appear with the following options:
- Export all existing contacts to your MailChimp list and automatically push new contacts to the list each time a new end-user has signed up and has agreed to receive promotional marketing material.
- Export all existing contacts to your MailChimp list starting from a specific date and automatically push the new contacts to the list each time a new end-user has signed up and has agreed to receive promotional marketing material.
- Do NOT export any existing contacts but automatically synchronize the list every time a new user signs up and agrees to receive promotional marketing material.
Once you decide what to do, click on the Start sync button. Please note that you cannot change a rule after sync has begun.
You will be informed f the process of moving emails to MailChimp has been completed or not (Syncing in progress means sync is not yet finished, and In Sync means sync is complete).
To remove an existing rule, click the trash can .
Setup: changing API Key data
Go to the Setup tab to change your API Key data.
Please note: disconnecting your API Key from the Cloud4Wi Dashboard will cause the reset of all your rules in the List tab.
