How to Get Started with ActiveCampaign

About ActiveCampaign's Integration

  • Admin/owner permissions - You don't need a certain role in order to use ActiveCampaign. However, users can have the following areas restricted, which may result in those areas not showing up in Zaps: Lists, Campaigns, Contacts, Subscription Forms, Templates, Reports, and Deals (applies to Small Business and Enterprise only). The ability to restrict user permissions is only available to Plus, Professional, Enterprise and Trial accounts only.
  • Paid/versioned account - All of ActiveCampaign's paid plans (Lite, Plus, Professional, Enterprise) work for all Zapier integrations.
  • Custom field support - For the most part custom fields are supported. However, in certain Actions such as "Find Contact" and "Create Deal", custom fields are not supported or returned.
  • Partner documentation - May be found here.
