Overview

The first time you add a MailChimp card to a FLO, you need to set up a configuration for that connector. Setting up a configuration will allow you to connect the Designer to your MailChimp account, save the information, and reuse that configuration the next time you build a FLO using MailChimp. You can set up and save multiple configurations and share them with your teammates. Here’s how to set up a new configuration in MailChimp:

  1. Click “+Add Account” on the MailChimp card.
  2. Give your account a recognizable nickname such as “My MailChimp Account” and click “Next”.
  3. In the popup window, enter your login information and click “Login”.
  4. On the next window that appears, select “Allow”. You will then automatically be redirected back to the card.

And your configuration is complete!
