Hey there, API Key. You got a minute to talk? Yeah, it’s kind of serious. You should probably sit down. So we’ve been thinking about this a long time and well, see, we’ve been together a while now and things were really awesome at the beginning. Like, super good.
But we think it’s time to move on. We’ve found someone new and their name is OAuth. No, stop crying, it’s not you, it’s us. Hey, if it makes you feel any better, we can still be friends!
Oh, wow, you were there the whole time? Awkward. Well, this is as good a time as any to let you know. You might have recently noticed a slight change in the way that you setup Campaign Monitor and MailChimp integrations for your form. Namely, you no longer need API Keys! Now it’s easier than ever to connect and integrate your forms with Campaign Monitor and MailChimp.
To add a Campaign Monitor integration to your form, simply click the “Connect to Campaign Monitor” button. A window will open which asks you to log in to your Campaign Monitor account to authenticate you. Log in, give Wufoo access to your account, and boom, connected.
Adding a MailChimp integration to your form is even easier. Same as before, click the “Connect to MailChimp” button and a window will open which asks you to log in to your MailChimp account to authenticate you. Log in and boom, you’re connected. No need to give permissions.
From there, all functionality for both integrations is unchanged. So if you’re familiar with Campaign Monitor or MailChimp, you’re set. Want more information on how to set up these integrations? Check out our help documentation for Campaign Monitor and MailChimp.
I Have An Existing Campaign Monitor or MailChimp Integration
No worries! If you’ve already got a Campaign Monitor or MailChimp integration for your form using the previous API Key method, your integration will continue to work. You can continue to update your settings like before and its business as usual. If you create a new Campaign Monitor or MailChimp integration, it will use the snazzy new OAuth method as described above.
As always we’ll continue to update our integrations to make them more robust and feature rich. If you’ve got feedback or suggestions on what we should improve, please let us know below in the comments!
