Step 1: Set up the trigger (Delenta)
For this example, we will be using the contacts on Delenta. All clients, leads & prospects information are saved under Contacts. Now, say we wanted to add a new subscriber whenever a new lead is created.
The first step of any Zap is to set up a trigger. In this case, we would like Delenta to trigger an action (creating a new lead)—so Delenta would be considered the trigger app. After selecting Delenta as the trigger app, you will be prompted to choose the specific conditions for activating the trigger. In this case, we want the Zap to run whenever a new lead is created.
The next step is to connect your Delenta account to Zapier (or to select an already connected Delenta account). If you do not already have an API key, you will need to generate an API key, to enter into Zapier. You can find your API key under My Settings > Login & Security
After selecting the appropriate account, you'll then be prompted to configure the trigger-specific setup options. With Delenta as a trigger, we'll need to specify the trigger by clicking the dropdown menu and selecting the appropriate options (in this case, we want the "New Invitation accepted client").
For the last part of the first step, Zapier will ask you to test your trigger. If everything works, then you'll be prompted to move onto the next step of your Zap.
Step 2: Set up the Action (MailChimp)
For the second step, you'll be asked to pick an action app. You can pick MailChimp.
You'll then be asked to select an action for MailChimp to take. There are a variety of potential options, but for our purposes, we want to pick Add/Update Subscriber.
The next step is to connect your MailChimp account to Zapier (or to select an already connected MailChimp account).
After that, you'll need to set up the action fields. There are several customization options here, but at a minimum, you'll need to specify an audience, first name, last name and an email address.
Once you're done creating updating the required fields, click the blue Continue button. Zapier will create a test for you before you're done completing the step so you can check to see if everything looks good. Make sure you test the action before moving on:
After testing, all that's left to do is to turn on the Zap! Congrats! You've set up Add new subscriber!
