Connecting to Mailchimp¶
Mammoth allows you to connect to your Mailchimp account and get the data into Mammoth.
Once your Mailchimp account is connected with Mammoth, you will be presented with a list of tables and views in that database.
- Select the desired table to get a preview.
- Write your own SQL query or run a test query and preview the result.
- Click on Next .
After you have selected the table you want to work on, you get options to configure it as follows -
- Rename it in the data pull scheduling window.
- Save it in a desired location in the the Data Library from Adding file to option.
Scheduling your Data Pulls¶
You can start retrieving the data now or at a specific time according to your choice. You can also schedule the data pull in order to get the latest data from your Database at a certain time interval - every few minutes, daily, weekly or monthly.
On every data pull from your Database, you also have an option to either replace the older data or combine with older data.
On choosing Combine with older data option, you will get an option to choose a unique sequence column. Using this column, on refresh, Mammoth will pick up all the rows that have greater value in this column than the previous data pull.
