Track Mailchimp campaign data in Geckoboard

MailChimp website: http://mailchimp.com/

MailChimp is a web-based application that handles the three main tasks of email marketing: managing subscriber lists, building email campaigns and reviewing campaign reports. 

Our MailChimp integration lets you see all your key data on a real-time dashboard without constantly having to log in to MailChimp. You can keep a close eye on how your email campaigns are performing and improve your email marketing strategy.

Adding a MailChimp widget to your dashboard


1. Click Add Widget at the top right of your dashboard.

2. On the page of Integrations, choose MailChimp (or search for 'MailChimp' in the search box).

3. Finally, select the type of MailChimp widget you would like to add.

Creating a connection and authenticating with MailChimp

When you add a MailChimp widget for the first time, you'll be prompted to create a connection and authenticate your MailChimp account with Geckoboard.

Once connected, Geckoboard will pull in the data from MailChimp straight to your dashboard. You only need to create the connection once, Geckoboard will take care of the rest.
