Integrate MailChimp into FileMaker – Modular FileMaker
FMSIMPLICITY just added a new MailChimp module to Modular FileMaker that looks pretty interesting. If you have a need to integrate FileMaker with MailChimp, this module will get you started:
More than 6 million people use MailChimp to create, send, and track email newsletters. You can now integrate their amazing product directly into FileMaker…
There are currently two dependencies:
1. BaseElements plugin, version 2.3 at the time of release ( July, 29 2014 )
2. JSON Module found athttp://www.modularfilemaker.org/module/json/orhttps://github.com/dansmith65/FileMaker-JSON
The module works on nine of the many methods MailChimp provides with their API. The functionality is currently concentrated on list maintenance. This is what I had a business case for so far. I am looking forward to seeing what the community has a use case for and develops other methods for inclusion in this module. Another vision would be working towards using the Insert from URL script step with httppost://.
The free BaseElements plugin referenced above seems to be popping up everywhere I look anymore. If you are not using it, give it a try. It extends FileMaker in lots of handy ways.
