Question   How do I assign a capture page to a series of autoresponder messages (a contact group)?

Answer    To setup a capture page to use a specific autoresponder series (contact group), you will need to do 3 steps in the following order.  If you already have a contact group with autoresponder messages, you can skip to step 3.

Create contact group

Create a new contact group.

Add AR message

Create instant AR message STEP 2
Add an autoresponder message (or series of messages) to the contact group.

Edit page

Assign a capture page to the new contact group.
Assign page to contact group

*Now, whenever a contact fills out the form on that capture page they will be assigned to the new contact group (autoresponder series) that you created.

*NOTE: If you cannot find the page under "Edit Pages" then go to pages and edit the page there, assigning it to the contact group.

Q. Is there a way to automatically switch contact groups based on actions?
Contact A is input to contact group 1. If contact A logs in they are switched to contact group 2, etc?

A. Yes.  You can do that with password protected pages and also delayed action.  Both features exist while editing the page.  For password protected pages they are assigned to the new group simply by visiting the page.  For delayed action they are transferred to the new groujp after they have viewed the page for X amount of seconds.

Also, you can setup an optin form and then have it so when they fill out the form they are added or transferred to a new contact group (the form fields can be hidden and pre-filled and then just show the button).

Also, there is an API that can be used to simply create custom situations where a contact is automatically assigned to a new group.  You can view the technical details for the API under our API documentation or you can create a support request to have us do it for you.

Also, several of our tools include the ability to change contact group based off an action in the tool (exa: Taking a survey with the survey tool).  Anytime this option exists a drop down will appear where you can define if and if so what contact group the contact should be assigned to.

Q. Why are my contacts going into the inactive folder and is it possible to stop this?


Contacts are automatically inactivated if an email that is sent to the contact bounces back as undeliverable.  It is not possible to prevent contacts from going inactive when their email bounces back as undeliverable.

Q. what does the setting "Preload AR Messages" mean?

A. It means that when a member joins they will have the autoresponder messages preloaded into their account.  So if they are preloaded then when the member goes to the autoresponder page they will see all the messages loaded and they won't have to do anything.  If they are not preloaded then when the member goes to the autoresponder page they will not have them loaded and will have to click the button on the right side to load the messages.

This setting can be controlled under advanced features to control all messages.  If it is turned on under advanced features it can also be specified when editing a contact group for messages belonging to that specific contact group.

Q. When I (admin) update the system autoresponders messages is there a way I can push these changes to all members?


Yes, there is a way!

There is a way to do this. The way you do it depends on if members are able to edit the pages.

If Members CANNOT Edit Emails

If your system is setup where members cannot edit emails then any changes you make as the admin are automatically applied to your members.

If Members CAN Edit Emails

Site Reload Messages Icon
Under the page for your site in the client admin, under the "Emails & Email Delivery" tab, under the tool tab there is a link called "Reload Messages" that can be used to do this.

After clicking the icon a popup will appear showing you all of your contact groups.  Click on the contact group you want to push all the changes to members for.

Another Option: LOCK Admin's Messages

Also, under advanced features in the email tab there is a setting called "Lock Admin Messages "  giving you the option to disable member's ability to edit admin emails.  This makes it where members can add their own messages but cannot edit the ones you create.  If you have this turned on then you do not need to do the steps above.
