Can I tag my leads besides syncing them to a list?

Yes, of course! Tagging leads directly from LeadsBridge can be useful to identify them once transferred in your ActiveCampaign lists. You'll be able to tag your leads inside the Fields Matching step of the bridge.

To add tags, you should add the Custom Field called Tags while on the Fields Matching step, then enter your tag names separated by commas like in the example below.

Why is my Custom Audience/Offline Conversions still in syncing?

It could be that your Custom Audience or Offline Conversions has been set to a 6 hours sync time. Typically, we suggest syncing your audience every 24 or 48 hours due to ActiveCampaign's API is a little slow to be able to process all your contacts in a 6 hours time range.
Avoiding this suggestion will probably cause your Custom Audiences to enter a syncing loop (that restarts your sync process each 6 hours).

How to enable double opt-in confirmation?

To activate the Double Opt-in feature on LeadsBridge side you should follow these two steps:
  • Switch to YES the Double Opt-in toggle on the Destination Step of your bridge
  • Add the Form id custom field on the Field Matching step of your bridge and match it with the form ID value.

How to use ActiveCampaign as source

ActiveCampaign can be used as source by setting up an additional Webhook to send lead's information to LeadsBridge.

Head to the source step of the bridge configuration, copy the Webhook that you see and add this as endpoint inside your ActiveCampaign settings.

Then follow the steps below:
  1. Log into your ActiveCampaign account
  2. Click on Settings at the bottom left of the menu
  3. Settings menu will open, click on Developer
  4. Then click on Manage Webhooks
  5. You will be redirected to the webhooks page, click Add to create a webhook.
