  2. If you have more than one "audience", click on the "Current audience" drop down and choose the desired audience.

  3. Click on "View Contacts".

  4. Click on the "Settings" drop-down and click on "Audience name and defaults".

  5. At "Audience ID" you will see a code with different letters and numbers. Copy this code and paste it into MICE Operations under "list ID".

At the bottom of the request module there will now be a checkbox mentioning; "I want to receive the newsletter". This way, the recipient give permission to receive your newsletter. The explicit consent of the recipient is required to send a digital newsletter.

If a client ticks the checkbox and sends the request, the following information will be sent to e-mailchimp: e-mail address, first name, last name, event type, chosen location, set-up and package.

The data is sent to Mailchimp with these merge fields:

EMAIL:     e-mailadres
FNAME: voornaam contactpersoon
LNAME: achternaam contactpersoon
EVENTTYPE: naam van gekozen evenementtype
LOCATION: naam van gekozen locatie
SETUP: naam van gekozen opstelling
PACKAGE: naam van gekozen arrangement(en)
