Create a connection with Mailchimp

When adding your first Mailchimp widget, you'll be asked to create a connection and authenticate your Mailchimp account so that we're able to collect your data and display it on the dashboard. You only need to create this connection once – we'll take care of the rest.

To connect your Mailchimp account with Geckoboard, follow these steps:

  1. Inside the Create a Connection panel, click on the Connect button.
  2. Inside the pop-up window, enter your MailChimp Username and Password.Connecting Mailchimp to Geckoboard
  3. Click Log in to authorize your account.
  4. You're now ready to configure your first Mailchimp widget! Any Mailchimp widgets you create will pull in and display data from this Mailchimp account.

    Note

    You can connect as many Mailchimp accounts as you need, but you'll only need to authenticate once per account.
