New registrants for your Event can be sent via API to your GetResponse account at time of registration.

Then through AEvent you can initiate timeline actions, triggering the right message for the right audience at the right time. With your email sequences fully customized and dynamic, unlocking full evergreen automation potential.

Timeline Actions:

Adding your Get Response Account to AEvent

Adding your Get Response Account to AEvent

In order to add your Get Response Integration you will need to first navigate to Integrations within AEvent, click Add Integration and then search / select Get Response.

Then name your integration as you see fit, and click 'Add'

Once here, open a secondary tab, and navigate to your Get Response Account.

Once you are logged in, click on yes to Authorize AEvent Application access to your GetResponse account.

Once your Get Response account has been successfully added, you will be see it's Connected state, and you are able to click on 'Test'.

A successful connection will yield a positive test result. Congratulations, your Get Response account is now successfully connected to AEvent!

Configuring your Get Response Integration within a Timeline

In order to utilize your Get Response Integration within AEvent, you need to activate it within the timeline you are working with. To do this, open the timeline you are working with.

Then select Integrations, set your Get Response Integration as Active, then click on the cogwheel to define your settings

Within the Integration Settings, we need to select the Campaign we want to add the registrants to (when they register). We can also select a Tag to be added on registration.

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND clicking on Custom Fields (Personalization) - Show, and setting up some custom personalization fields.

These are values that include not only email and name, (Join Link, Replay Link, Day of Webinar, Day of Week, Time, UTM Tracking Parameters, ETC), and are sent along with the new subscriber information to Get Response.

We've made the creation of these fields easy, and by clicking the 'Create System Fields button', AEvent will automatically create within Get Response the needed Custom Fields, while selecting those values within AEvent.

You can also use the Create Single Field, to create a single Custom Field within Get Response. OR you can manually create fields / use pre-created fields. If you manually create a new field within your Get Response integration, you will need to click on Refresh for it to appear here.

Once you create your custom fields, you can click out of the pane, as the initial setup of your Get Response integration within THIS AEvent timeline is now complete!

Creating a Timeline Action to Add (or Remove) an Get Response Tag

Setting up a timeline action to Add or Remove a tag from a contact within Get Response is Easy.

Within the timeline builder start by creating an action, selecting the date and time that you wish the action to occur. Select the audience you are targeting, then select your Get Response Integration, and Add (or remove) Tag.

If you have already created the tag within your Get Response account, you can select it here. Otherwise you can click on the Add Tag button to create one (This will create it within AEvent as well as Get Response).

Once you've created or selected the tag in which you want to add, just click on Create.

Your Add Tag (or remove) Action has now been created, and you can view it on your timeline. Per the example above, 15 minutes prior to the event starting, an action will occur that will add a tag to all registrants registered for the scheduled event.

Creating a Timeline Action to Move a Subscriber to another list

Creating a timeline action to move a subscriber to a different list at a set time before or after your Event, is easy.

Within the timeline builder start by creating an action, selecting the date and time that you wish the action to occur. Select the audience you are targeting, then select your Active Campaign Integration, and Subscriber Move List.

After clicking on Create your action will be created and viewable on your timeline

When this action occurs, it will now move all registrants that are matching the Non-Attendee Audience from the original list they were added to (at time of registration), to the new list.

Creating a Timeline Action to Delete a Subscriber

If you wish an automation action to occur that will delete a certain audience at a certain time from your GetResponse account, these are the steps

Within the timeline builder start by creating an action, selecting the date and time that you wish the action to occur. Select the audience you are targeting, then select your GetResponse Integration, and Delete Subscriber

After clicking on Create your action will be created and viewable on your timeline.

When this action occurs, it will delete all subscribers matching the audience selection from your GetResponse Account. DO NOTE: This does not remove the registrants from your AEvent account.

Using AEvent Custom Fields as Personalization values inside your Emails

When registrant information is sent to GetResponse on registration, any custom fields that you have setup will be sent along as 'Personalized Content' or 'Personalization Tags'. You can use these dynamic tags within the email editor to not only populate the normal stuff like First Name, but you can use Join URL, Replay URL, Day of Webinar, Time of Webinar, ETC.

Make sure to utilize the dynamic variables to the fullest, so you can maximize the dynamic content of the email sequences, to maximize evergreen returns!

How to reconnect your GetResponse Integration

If you are encountering issues with your GetResponse integration it is possible that the API key issued from GetResponse has been reset, or changed. If you click 'Test' and it is NOT successful, first step we recommend is reconnecting your integration.

By clicking Re-Connect you will need to login to your GetResponse Account.

Once you are logged in, click on yes to Authorize AEvent Application access to your GetResponse account.

Once your Get Response account has been successfully added, you will be see it's Connected state, and you are able to click on 'Test'.

A successful connection will yield a positive test result. Congratulations, your Active Campaign account is now successfully Re-connected to AEvent!


How to remove your GetResponse Integration from AEvent

If you want to remove your GetResponse integration from AEvent, you need to navigate to Integrations, locate your GetResponse integration and click on the trashcan icon.

You then will be prompted to confirm deletion.

(NOTE: Removing this integration will immediately effect it's use with any timelines that it is active in.)

IF you are experiencing issues with this integration, but do not desire to REMOVE it, we recommend on reconnecting it instead. This will allow it's configuration to

continue as set within your timelines.

Once you confirm removal, the integration within AEvent no longer exists.
