The user interface of the "Lead Generation" element has been upgraded! Please, check out the changes here, before using the element.
Many of our members have asked us: does Thrive Leads support ActiveCampaign?
With the API connection feature, the answer is: yes, it does! Here's a video that shows you how to create the connection and add leads who sign up through Thrive Leads forms to your ActiveCampaign lists:
Create the API Connection
To connect ActiveCampaign you first need to log in to your ActiveCampaign Dashboard and get the API key and URL of your account.
You can do this by clicking on your username and selecting "My Settings" from the drop-down, once in your account settings page click on the tab labeled API and under API settings you can see the API URL and Key.
Now you need to login to your WordPress administration panel.
Click on Thrive Dashboard, and press the Manage Connections button of the API connections card:
Then, add a new connection, select ActiveCampaign from the "Select an app" drop-down:
After that, you need to paste your API URL and API key and click on "Connect".
You will get a success message if everything went ok. You can edit or remove this connection on the "API Manager" page.
Connect your account to Thrive Leads
Now, you're all set to connect the ActiveCampaign account to Thrive Leads. For that, access the Thrive Leads dashboard, and find the Lead Group that contains the form you want to connect to ActiveCampaign.
Click on it, to expand it.
Then, when you see the type of form that contains your opt-in form, click on "Edit":
You might have multiple forms of the same type. Look for the one that you want to connect to ActiveCampaign, and click on the pencil icon:
The form will open in the Thrive Architect editor. You will then be able to select the "Lead Generation" element and connect it to your Active Campaign account.
Click on the element, in the editor, to open its options in the left sidebar:
Next, click on "Add Connection":
A pop-up will open, and you have to click on the down arrow to open the list of available connections:
Naturally, click on ActiveCampaign:
The pop-up will expand, and the next thing that you have to do is choose your mailing list:
In the next section, you will have to choose the ActiveCampaign form that you want to use:
Lastly, you can also add tags, if you want, and then, when you're done, click on "Apply":
The connection is all set now. You can then add and customize form fields, and decide what happens after people submit the form. These options have been described in more details in this article.
