Through your GrowthZone software, you can sync contacts in your Lists/Committees to Mail Chimp. Any additions, changes or deletions made to lists/committees that you have set to Synchronize Contacts with authorized third party newsletter solution will synchronize to Mail Chimp near real-time. The only data that syncs into Mail Chimp is a contact's full name and email address.


NOTE: You can synchronize as many groups (lists/committees) as needed to Mail Chimp. See Lists/Committees for information on configuring your lists/committees to synchronize to a third party newsletter.
